    Well, out of the 8 burns ive donem only 3 games work properly! And SMG gets read in the preview, but then before anything starts, it stops reading X_X

    Is there anything i should do before burning games?

    I already use wiifrii to patch them to my japanese wii, and Wiu1.1 to get rid of the brick blocker, but some games still dont work!

    Is there anything else i should to to ensure my brawl, legend of zelda TP, galaxy, and harvest moon get burned properly?
    I'm almost out of DVDs, and have the money, nor transportation to get them soon.

    Edit: Oh, and i switch from burning at 2x, and 4x, but my main is 2x. and i use IMGBURN.

    TDK DVD+R discs work fine for me. Never had a failed disc.
    I use imgburn and use 2.4x speed (my burner won't go faster). I always let it verify the disc, and that always has 100% success

    Use ImgBurn to burn your disks as opposed to Nero (which is good also) but ImgBurn is better for wii games.

    Select the slowest speed possible (usually 2x) and select verify at the end to make sure there is no problems.

    Done this way you will ensure a quality burn with a slim chance of getting a coaster.

    ok, well the dvd+rw was a definite need, so thanks for that suggestion.

    now galaxy works fine, but brawl and TP do not [​IMG]

    all three are pal btw.

    anything i need to do to get them to work? Especially TP, i really just want it for the homebrew channel(despite the game itself looking like its awesome, but i have other games i want to play right now)

    Try NTSC-U versions then. PAL always gave me problems but not so with NTSC-U.

    You may also want to check the compatibility list and see if they are working without any patching... some of the games in that past that were incompatible are now compatible patching w/ waninoko's iso patcher v1. You just drag the .iso (game) on the isopatcher.exe and type in 249. This has worked for alot of nonworking games before which has since made gamma almost completely compatible with all games.

    So just hang in there and don't throw away all your discs just yet... I have had my stack go down before to a new loader and I am sure this will happen again.


    Good luck.

    Like IronMask mentioned, refer to the website I posted above. I follow that guide and all the games work perfectly! So if yours are PAL games, just scroll down to the PAL section.

    I haven't been active in the forum for quite some time. Apparently there are alot of new homebrew apps now that are installed into the Wii which allow you to boot out of region games with no problems. GeckoOs? I have yet to use it but seems to work pretty well. Might want to have a look into it.

    Ah, thanks.
    Seems like i need to use freeloader for TP to load :3 Thanks guys!
    As for brawl... they dont list it for pal to ntsc-j, so seems like i will be needing to re-download ><

    But i dont use gamma, i use wiikey1.9

    I'm on wiikey 1.9s as well.

    Have a look at this topic. It might help.

    I managed to play SSBB NTSC-U version on my Jap console.
