    Thanks to the feedback on my previous topic, specifically from noobwarrior007 about the region free disc channel on 4.0U, I have created an updated hacks.ini for preloader 0.29.

    Note: Be sure to enable both "Region free Wii games" and "Force Disc Region" for everything to work properly.

    Update (4/26): Added hacks for 4.0E, unable to test due to no PAL Wii, someone please report if these work.

    4.0U hacks.ini:

    The updated hacks.ini can also be found on Wiibrew.org.

    I have tested it on a 4.0U Wii with cIOSCORP and its loading PAL and NTSC copies from the disc channel.

    Credits go to tona and QLeap for Any Region Changer patches which these are based on.

    Anything like this for Pal?

    Also, has a hacks remover been made yet? Is there another way of changing the hacks without reinstalling a system wad?

    I have the same questions.

    So far I installed preloader (after having successfully updated to 4.0E following the instructions from the 'Ultimate System Menu 4.0 Guide' from here) but still without any hacks as I am not sure whether they can be removed/changed without having to reinstall everything.
    It would be great if I could get back some of the features Starfall provided with 3.2E (i.e. health warning skip, region free channels and no update check on game discs).

    all you do is replace the hacks.ini in the sd card then go to preloader and save thats what i did and it worked with no problems.

    So these hacks all work for PAL as well? And do I understand this right, if I want to change hacks I just place another hacks.ini on SD card and the old settings will be automatically overwritten?

    Sorry for asking but I haven't found a 'preloader for dummies' thread yet... ;-)

    Good to know, thank you for the information.

    Are these ini-files save that can be found when following the Wiibrew.org link from first post?
    In that case I would give the PAL ini-file a try.

    Confirmed working! PAL Originals and Backups both work on a NTSC-U 4.0 Wii.

    Great Work!

    Also of importance here is the Force Disc Region hack which gets Monster Hunter G and the Tri demo working. (softmodded 4.0U)
