    StartPatch 4.2.6


    Change log
    GC Bug fix implemented from v4.2.5 - Patch 1-6 was removed from the Region Free patches, cause it done nothing for Region Free, Just caused Gc games not to boot, I have no clue why it was ever included in the original patch or if something changed in 4.2., Also the Source code on wiki wasn't updated to 4.2.6 it was just a quick edit So if the patches ever get ported Dont Port patch Region Free 1-6
    -----------------------------------------


    Region Free Wii Games

    Just apply all 5 patches,

    if any patch says no patch found error just make sure the patch isn't already installed or have a clean System Menu installed

    Tested working , and Tested against bricks.



    Thanks:
    Crediar for[Disable 4.2 disc region checks] which was needed in the region free code

    Known Region free issue:
    Some Pal Games Black Screen on boot in NTSC and vice-versa this seems to be a video issue, I'll try to sort it out if at all possible
    edit: Forget that just tested 4.1 region free hack had the same problem with some pal games so nothing to fix, it is just a video issue

    sweet, with this new hack, there should be no benefits of 4.1 over 4.2 any more...

    do u know if this works without cioscorp (say using neogamma or something)

    doesnt need cioscorp or neogamma or anything. works with originals in disc channel. thats the whole point. any loader will already have region free without the need for this.

    It just required alittle extra code provided by crediar and the old region free code ported.

    And everyone remove any previous hacks installed by any other older version startpatch before installing this one

    It didn't require anything if you used a loader. It was just region free from the Disc Channel that was broken.

    dont use the first region free hack (1/6) apparently its seems to disable GC games and does nothing for region free wii games..

    what I heard its being removed in the next version...

    any chance anyone can covert these codes to priiloader ????

    ^^^
    NTSC-U

    [Region Free Wii Games]
    version=481
    offset=0x8137DBE8,0x8137DBC8,0x8137D904,0x8137FC84,0x8137E43C
    value=0x4800001C,0x38000001,0x38000001,0x38600001,0x60000000

    if anyone is interested in porting the Ntsc-U patch heres the correct offsets porting off of the ntsc-u patch itself

    PAL +A8
    JP -B4C
    KOR -C6C


    edit:
    Btw Can anyone confirm patch 1/6 is defiantly not needed for region free before i remove it

    editagain: Patch 1/6 is already removed from this post

    I can confirm it works on a 4.2 ntsc-u without the first offset/value tested with a PAL gh world tour

    I currently have v4.2.4U installed.. should I uninstall the patches first and then upgrade to 4.2.6, or is that unnecessary?
