    will wii scrbbed games work with usb loader ?

    Apparently it's region free, except for Japanese games because of the text issue.

    i think the usb loader skips the updates automatically and scrubbed games should also work

    I just tried to start NTSC Call of Duty World at War from USBLoader 1.1 on my PAL system and it gave me a reddish screen. Then I burned the ISO and tried it again and it was okay. I'm guessing USBLoader isnt prepared to handle inter-region setups

    I have a PAL Wii 3.2E Wiikey1, it reads all my backups and original games fine, it runs Tatsunoko unpatched without brickblock done by me, with the Video Mode fixed USB Loader 1.1(available in this forum) it shows the right color. All other US and EU games worked fine also. All scrubbed games work flawlessly

    wiifrii patched games works and scrubbed games working also.

    But some patched games dont work and i've got green screen or black screen or the Wii Hang

    for exemple : Fishing Master World Tour working good with backup Launcher R87 but not with usb loader 1.1 but it's a NTSC US patched to PAL and Wiibrickblocked and scrubbed...

    I've extracted a game back off the hard drive and examined it in WiiScrubber and it removes the update partition entirely so you should find that running an NTSC game on a PAL machine isn't going to cause you any issues. OK, you might get possible video problems(?) but it won't try and install an NTSC update or anything like that. I've got a PAL machine and have been wary about touching NTSC stuff for exactly that reason! [​IMG]
