    Check IOS requirements for all games which don't work.

    NeoGamma use IOS249 to start games, but the disc channel is using the real IOS, you must update the IOS for naruto, but I don't know which IOS it's using. You could force games to use IOS249 with the priiloader hack.

    It appears to be a video mode/language conflict...

    The "Region Free EVERYTHING" hack just kills the sysmenu's region lock, but it does not force the games to the settings they want. The sysmenu instead tries to load games under the Wii's "global" video mode and langauge settings.

    Load them up in Gecko 1.9.3.1 or NeoGamma, and force Language to Japanese and video mode to NTSC.

    ...alternatively, you COULD change your Wii's global video mode and language settings to Japanese and NTSC if you REALLY wanted to...

    I read that the priiloader region free hacks can cause system instability. I have soft-modded my wii, can I play Iso's from different regions through usb loaders or do I have to actually install this hack? (I'm wondering if it only applies to discs or iso backups aswell?)

    It only applies to things from the System Menu.

    So is it true that it causes system instability? (I ask since it is recommended in one of the tutorials on here)

    And I'm still unclear: can I play any region iso's on my hacked PAL wii without this priiloader hack? Thanks

    Oh cool! I don't need to install it then. But how do I play other region ISO's? Will my wii play them automatically or do I have to change the settings to force NTSC (in usb loader Gx settings or something?) would be useful if you could give me instructions, thanks!

    Most games will work fine with video mode set to System default or Game default, just start it from the usb loader and will work, if not, try to force ntsc or other video settings until the game starts

    Here the games i have played, in PAL version on my NTSC Wii:

    Pandora's Tower = Have to set video mode to ''Force NTSC''. Works fine
    Project Zero 2 Wii Edition = Video mode: System default. Works fine (If you set Game default the game will not start)
    Calling = Have to set video mode to ''Force NTSC''. Works fine
    WarioWare: Smooth Mooves = Have to set to ''Game Default'', works, but on my TV it looks stretched
    Tomb Raider Anniversary = Video Mode: System Default. Works fine
    Tomb Raider Underworld = Video mode: System default. Works fine
    Wheel of Fortune = Video mode: System default. Works fine
    Metal Slug Anthology = Video mode: System default. Works fine
    King of Fighters Orochi Saga = Video mode: System default. Works fine
    Mario & Sonic At Olympics 2012 = Video mode: System default. Works fine
    Deadly Creatures = Video mode: System default. Works fine

    As you see, the games i have tested, only calling, pandora's tower and warioware i have to change the settings, only warioware give me issues.

    If the game don't start from the Usb Loader, you can use an homebrew like Riivolution or Gecko OS to avoid region lock with your retail disk.
    Fatal Frame 4 (Project Zero 4) for example works fine on Riivolution with the English Patch

    Thanks, useful to know. (BTW I'm talking about loading backups from usb not retail discs). When you say video settings, do you mean the wii system menu settings or usb loader gx? thanks

    I know, i'm talking about backups too

    I just mentioned Riivolution and Gecko OS for retail disc as an alternative if your backups don't work, but forget about this for now, the usb loader which backups should work fine.

    The video settings i'm talking about are on USB Loader GX
    You will find these options: ForcePAL60, ForcePAL50, Force NTSC, Force480p, System default, Disc default or Game default, and others

    You can set this option on global settings. Open Usb Loader GX, go to Global Settings, then Loader Settings choose ''video mode'' and set to what you want, i recommend you set the option to: ''System default''

    Or you can set this option individually per game, just choose a game, go to settings, then game load, and set video mode to ''Use Global'' or other option. This is useful if a game don't work with the global setting, so you don't have to keep changing the global settings everytime to load a game.
