    WiiNewz can now confirm that the recently released full Dual Layer (DVD9) dump of "Super Smash Brothers Brawl" works fine on Wiikey, including PAL systems. Apparently, the chip has problems reading the original copy but a backup works fine. I guess everyone got their panties all in a bunch over nothing. " ~wiinewz.com

    worry not owners of the wiikey(me), it looks like we dont need an update after all... right? [​IMG]

    I was really going to buy this game but you're saying that my modded Wii won't even run the original copy? WTF?

    i only know what wiinewz said, and since it looks pretty true the only thing i can think that may effect the wiikey and possibly other chips, is if the north American version has added protection or something different about it.

    The Wiikey team has and is working on it, it should be resolved well before the US release.

    This might be an odd question, but it's vaguely relevant to the topic.

    Since Wiikey's update to allow the reading of the original DSBX disk isn't out, is it possible it'd work by loading up the single-layer version, then discswapping to the original at the main menu?

    Thanks,

    --Ray

    Well maybe.
    But i think the WiiKey will still patch the whole code and then it would lead into errors.

    That`s really strange-->the original doesn`t work and the back-up works...

    But I still think, that the Wiikey-Team should make a patch...

    There are certain games, that need to be supported just because they are worth it and if I have the original at home why should I play a copy???

    But I`m sure, that the Wiikey-Team will solves this problem...
