    Anyone tried an out of region game like Super Mario 3D World, where you need to change files for loadiine to work with your console?

    i.e. If the WUD is USA, for EU console, in the "content\LuigiBros\msg" folder, "USA_en" must be renamed to "EUR_en", as well as in the folder "content\LocalizedData", "UsEn" must be renamed to "EuEn", in order for the game to boot.

    Most games don't need folder changes, so probably.

    I think it will still not work.
    It has been reported that the manual is not working, and someone patched the console region (product area) and bricked his redNAND because the REG_lang didn't exist on his console.

    It sounds like they patched the console region instead of game region, which would make sense then cause it is looking for out of region system files you don't have. Much like a game does when booting out of region.

    I checked this again.
    he edited the sys_prod.xml and changed
    <product_area type="unsignedInt" length="4" access="710">2</product_area>
    to
    <product_area type="unsignedInt" length="4" access="710">4</product_area>

    and uploaded it back into the System folder of the Wii U

    if games are using this file to get the Region_Language combination to load the correct path on the disc, then it will not work with all games.
    Mario 3D World will still look at the product_area stored in that file to generate its on-disc path.

    We can hope the games are not using that file, or that there's a way to patch the Region+lang at launch to get the game to access the existing path on the disc.

    Actually, Someone tested that game with this regionhax method?
    better test and see than make suppositions.

    Yea, that's the wrong one for region free. That's console region. Lol


    If someone really wants to mess with console region, they should try to get that Region's files put on sys/redNAND first. Wouldn't recommend being silly and going for broke though.

    not all games have that language file issue.
    let us know which game you tried and if it required edition to work with loadiine.

    I just installed the Game "Taiko No Tatsujin Tokumori! (JPN)" to my European (Regionfree patched) SysNAND.
    Aaaaaand it works!
    Don't need to run iosuhax before or something else!

    File modification only works if you run iosuhax or Loadiine.
