    Is it possible to change the Wii U settings to run games in 50hz on a US Wii U? I know PAL Wii U's can do it natively, wondering if it would be possible to do it on a NTSC one.

    This is not possible in the Wii U settings, the Wii U (I think) auto-detects which refresh rate to use based on your cord (composite/component/HDMI) and your TV.

    Yeah, but the Wii U does have some librairy to manage TV Settings / Screen stuff (avm.rpl etc...) Some i think a homebrew may change it

    Like create a thread with the function as entr point + hertz argument

    I think it could be possible but nobody wants to code it for such a small minority. Why do you need it at 50hz?

    EDIT: There is actually some function to modify it but they need to be ported to C, but asm to C ... Is how to say... A subliminal mindblowing shit for me

    Sorry to bump, figured no one else would reply so I haven't been here in a while.
    Basically, Xenoblade Chronicles on Wii U 50hz has a much faster walking speed than 60hz for some reason. This is very useful for speedruns, but since it's only accessible to PAL owners so NTSC owners have to import a PAL Wii U, which is obviously expensive. I was hoping for a something that could import that feature to NTSC Wii Us.

    You can manually set it using an USB loader

    I think he is talking Xenoblade Chronicles X not the original Xenoblade Chronicles
