    Thanks a lot for the pal updates this time the wii boots fine & all hacks seem to work as stated [​IMG] if boot2 was not installed the last set of hacks would have bricked me for sure.


    EDIT:

    [No System Menu Background Music]
    version=482
    offset=0x8136B2A0
    value=0x

    Have same as Karpo_007 with just that one enabled did not try the No System Menu Sounds At All one.

    Thanks for these, hopefully the region hacks can be figured out soon too.

    EDIT: Found an error:

    [No System Menu Background Music]
    version=482
    offset=0x8136B2A0
    value=0x4E800020
    [No System Menu Sounds At All]
    version=482
    offset=0x8136B2A0
    value=0x4E800020

    Obviously both try to disable all sounds, which causes that annoying banner sound issue.

    Seems to work for me. Have you tried it with "Skip Diagnostic Disc Check" enabled? I take it you are trying to run an original out of region GC disc and not a DVD-R? If still no joy I can send you a combintion of alternative patches to test if you like?

    The ones on wiibrew for 4.2E do not work, I am porting these myself and will submit them to wiibrew when I have had enough confirmations and have solved the wii region hacks.

    Rappidshare will not let me download this, too many users using rappidshare at once or something. Can someone please upload the working ini to another hosting site at all?

    You might want to double check your hacks.ini or disable and re-enable the hack. I have confirmed this hack working on 7 consoles and can copy SSBB and MarioKart data to and from the SD card with no problems!!


    New Hack > Just added: [Block Online Updates]

    Still working on the wii disc region hacks!!

    Me, because I like to know how many people download (lets me know if the work I'm doing is appreciated) [​IMG]

    My link is also on RS TrafficShare (this means that non RS users get a direct download and are not subjected to count down clocks or speed restrictions), so I'm paying the BW, though I'm sure I can afford it on a 1KB file, lol!

    Hey, the more links the merrier [​IMG]
