    Hi guys, I have a 3.4E Wii with a WiiKey v1. If I buy an imported US Version of New Super Mario Bros Wii, will I be able to play it directly from the Disc Channel?
    Please only reply if you know it, no guesses [​IMG]

    Thank you !

    regards
    padi

    sorry for the typo in the title [​IMG]

    buy ?
    just DL it

    you'll probably need to sofmod it too, but I'm not certain

    I don't have a chip, just softmodded & I can run backups & other region discs, but my Disc Channel is absolutely useless to me.

    No, not unless you use a homebrew tool such as Preloader or Startpatch to enable region free.

    But why not just buy the PAL version?

    update:

    works flawlessly [​IMG]

    I am on 4.1E now. Had to install StartPatch to disable the System-Upgrade Message though.
