    So I have a few PAL isos from friends in the other regions of the world and would like to know how I can patch these games to work on NTSC? How would I go about patching the .iso and how would I patch a .wbfs? if thats possible?



    Any help is appreciated.

    How do you launch your stuff? Most usb loaders have the options to patch the video settings of a game.
    In case of neek, you can even run the game in it's own region nand.
    If your TV doesn't accept PAL, you have a problem.

    My TV doesnt support PAL - thats why I'm curious as to a way of patching the game.

    Oh and to answer your question I use CFG Loader

    Go into your loader settings and change the video mode to force ntsc

    I'll give this a try to see if it works. Maybe there's specific instructions for specific loaders.

    Yes, each different loader has its own settings, weather it be Neogamma, CFG, WiiFlow, etc,....Usually just forcing NTSC
    does the trick for MOST games,
    But there IS a handful of games that wont work on NTSC.
    PAL games that will not:
    Runaway: Dream Of The Turtle (PAL) ,and its ONLY a PAL game
    The Kore Gang: Outvasion From Innerspace, PAL version, NTSC version is flawless.
    The others I have forgotten in my old age.

    I ran a test on one game, wanted to see if it worked. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=esLsy1l4zhQ and turns out it was pretty successful.
    What are the other options such as "Country Fix, VIDTV" and such? Like what do they do?

    I have to do VIDTV for PAL games sometimes along with the force NTSC.
