    From what I understand of it, nothing.

    Short of Datel releasing a Wii Freeloader, we're fairly screwed as I found last night. Just installed the Wiikey, and both Trauma Center and Wario Ware refuse to boot, all because they're NTSC!

    If Datel can release a Freeloader I'd imagine it'd be possible to do the same thing with homebrew or a modchip update.

    Yeah, but how do you factor in the gamecube games not working that way?

    For example, I have Paper Mario NTSC, but I own a PAL Wii. Despite having the Wiikey set to "Regionfree", I still have to use the Freeloader to get it to run.

    I see where you're coming from, but if it's not been done yet, surely it can't be? I could be wrong though.

    Just a thought! [​IMG]

    This small creature told me that the freeloader for the Wii would be released pretty soon, and that it wouldn't take as long as we all think.

    I'm pretty happy with my region free capabilities at the moment. I mean I can play:
    Wing Island NTSC-J & Elebits NTSC-U on a PAL Wii so I can't complain...
