    Because that's the firmware he's programming it on.


    Don't fret... I've already used the downgrader on my NTSC Wii and it works perfectly fine.

    Just don't forget to uninstall the modifications before going back to your original version.

    Not unless you program in some video conversion software, because AFAIK no VC games were ever produced in 480p, so can't output in that resolution.

    Uh, you're a little misinformed....

    For one, "resolution" is not a factor here. The "I" and "P" denote scanning (the number of lines[frames] which are displayed on the screen at any given time).

    There are many methods to convert an Interlace(I) source to a Progressive(P) source. One of the most commonly used ones is line-doubling. In this method, each odd and even frame are averaged to form one complete frame and then doubled to fill in the empty frames.

    Games, however, are not written to adhere to any specific resolution and they don't do scanning. They simply output a resolution to the GPU and send full frames. The GPU must then display the frames as interlace or progressive and at the resolution given.

    I still wish I understood exactly what Starfall enables you to do... I guess I'll try it and see. Only uncertain about the "region free" stuff [​IMG]

    Go into the Operations Guide for said game, and with a nunchuck attached, press Z + A + 2 simultaneously. You'll hear a chime. You should only have to do this once (it should apply to all other VC games).

    I downgraded to 3.2E from 3.2U and didn't have any duplicate channels.


    Also, I don't know if you're a little slow, but.... enabling the region free modification will still allow you to play your NTSC Brawl.

    I was told it gives you duplicate channels since it still has the update in Brawl.

    That's probably true.... seeing as Brawl has 3.2 on it.

    The trick around this is to create a blank WAD for each title that has nothing but the Tik, Cert, and TMD files.

    This way, the update will see that the channels are installed, but they won't take up space.

    Get a game that works and do it with that one.

    The changes apply to every VC title.
