    Hey everybody.

    I have Priiloader installed on my Wii, so that I can skip disc updates and run games of any region. It works well for many games, but there's some issues with certain Wii and GameCube games. The game launches fine, but because the console's language is set to English, many of the characters appear as mojibake.

    If I were to launch the disc from a backup launcher, there are options to force the game to load in Japanese, so that all the characters in the game show up properly. It also changes the home button overlay to Japanese while the game is running.

    Is there any mod for the disc channel so that you can launch games in a different language, even if it means holding a button while the game is loading or something? It's a bummer having to load up a homebrew app for couple of games that I own.

    as far as i know, no mods for the disc channel that can let you do that. your best bet is a backup launcher. just suck it up i guess

    just my opinion .. but you should use a Gecko OS forwarder , something like that one in the video

    or a channel like 1931_YouPorn_CHiCKENWare-0RANGECHiCKEN.rar that i use for my shipped from Europe games

    The Region Free hacks cause system instability anyway.

    yeah, but then I lose the nice channel animation and audio. I guess there's no way around it for these games.

    thanks everybody, I'll just have to use Gecko OS for the problem games.
