    Now.. my wii is Pal on 4.0E, I have no issues with Wii games or Wiiware region free, but NTSC / JP virtual console games don't want to load. I just get a black screen, I don't even get told this channel can't be used... it just crashed.

    I can't seem to figure out why, I've tried loading in Gecko OS but get the same thing.. [​IMG] I use pre-loader hacks to make it so I can load NTSC and JP stuff and it works great, but with virtual console.. yeah. [​IMG]

    1: I'm using the region free channel hack. It works for Wiiware. Maybe I should try a new hack list.. if there is one.

    2: Not done that... I think. >.>; Normally the preloader hack works fine for wiiware and wii games so I've not really had to.

    3: Yeah it is. And I know it is because my NTSC games are in colour. o-o

    1) get the hacks.ini from HERE

    2) patch your system menu IOS, this is required to play pirated vc/wiiware channels

    But the wiiware ones work...

    What should I patch it with then?

    Edit: lol I updated the hacks.ini and now EVERY channel is giving me a "This channel can't be used" error. >_>

    Edit2: It was the Region free EVERYTHING hack that caused that. :/ Also the hacks at that link are for 4.1 or 4.2...
    I should update from 4.0 sometime.. Or just use a rom. >_>;

    No he didnt

    you need to patch you System Menu IOS to play downloaded/pirated VC/WW games and there is no need for a Priiloader hack if done correctly and it takes less than 30 seconds to do, once your IOS is patched you can install and use VC/WW wads from any region and they will play

    away to patch you IOS is to use "Freethebug", its part of "wwpacker", do a search for it, get you SM IOS using NUS/NUSAD(NOT A STUBBED VERSION) pak it as a "wad", drag & drop the packed wad on "_wwpacker-FreeTheBug.bat" and choose what patches you want, once dont use a wadmanager to install that patched wad and your done

    @jaybee... hey hey hey! I resent that comment!! I am gonna need to start putting a disclaimer after all of my posts!

    @OP, yea, those hacks I gave u are for 4.1 and 4.2, I forgot u were on 4.0, but even if u got the wrong hacks.ini, it shouldn't brick u, i think u just shouldn't have been able to use it. And I use the regionfree everything hack (on 4.2U) and it didn't brick me so I dont think it was this hack that was screwing up ur wii

    so where do u stand now... your edit2 makes it sound like u figured out the problem

    thx for coming to my defence [​IMG]

    but dont u need the regionfree hack AND a patched system menu IOS to play pirated vc/wiiware from other regions?
