    or is it not 100%.i downloaded a WAD of Rondo of Blood (i'm not gonna give you a link but search it like this in google and you should find it "Dracula.X.Rondo.of.Blood.VC.JAP.Wii") and according to someonewith a Japanese Wii it worked for him, but when i tried converting to PAL it didn't work. do you guys have any idea why it wont work and what i could do to fix it or can i just not play it if freethewads isn't making it work.

    This is from johs gc tracker and I requested the game from him [​IMG]
    Free the wads seems to suck so either hexedit or a new tool is needed.
    feel free to try make one [​IMG]

    Working on PAL WII!!! (but needs making region free first)

    This will not install if you run it through Freethewads.exe

    Using "wadpacker-VERSION_0.00007" all i did was

    1/ wadunpacker.exe rondo.wad (this gave me a load of files)

    2/ edited the .tmd file @ 019D and changed the value from 00 to 03

    3/ wadpacker on title.cert (which packed all the files back together in to a wad called "NEW.wad"

    Now works on PAL

    Hopefully the patched file will turn up somewhere.

    If we learn this method we will get more import wads to work!
    freethewads seems to have low compability.

    when I use the unpacker inside bfgr_wadtools_v039a to unpack, it cant find common-key even though Ive put it in the folder.
    I only find a spanish forum of in on Google and I dont speak spannish.
