    I'm trying a game out using BackupLauncher and it starts up in black and white. The game ISO was PAL and my unit is NTSC, however, I've successfully played PAL games in the past by forcing NTSC. When I do this with this game the screen turns all Green and just sits there until I turn off the power on the Wii. I've tried recopying the game at a lower burn speed but same thing happens....any Ideas? If I force PAL being a PAL game will this work?

    some games cannot be forced, you will need to patch the ISO, or have an t.v. that supports pal & ntsc

    If the game is black and white with PAL and freezes with NTSC, the game doesn't contain any info how to output NTSC video. Oh, and this means your tv is bad and doesn't support PAL playback. Try force NTSC and vidpatch, and if this doesn't work you need to patch the main.dol.

    Check the compatibility list. Some games won't work on backup loaders.

    That's a region error. Some games don't get affected by Force NTSC(as some NTSC games don't get affected by Force PAL sometimes).
    You should patch the game with WiiFrii before burning.

    Thanks for the info guys. Is WiiFrii available somewhere through this site. I've done a couple of searches with no luck finding a link to the file.

    Thanks again!

    You can find it here.
    For the common-key, you'll have to search it yourself, because i can't say that here.

    With this toy you can both dump the main.dol to sd card and load the main.dol from the sd card instead of loading it from the disc. As the video mode is patched in the main.dol, this is very handy and simple to use. Run the toy, press - to dump. Then open the main.dol with the generic wii patcher and patch the video mode. and then play the game with the toy and press +.

    Did you test with a clean 1:1 copy? If you killed the disc with wiifrii my toy can't help.

    Well....I'm still playing around with this issue. I've seen a couple people make reference to the fact that they can't give "common-key" info here....why's that?

    Is the common-key specific to the game you want to use it with? I can't seem to find these common keys or bin files anywhere I've got WiiFrii now but I'm stuck...can someone at least point me in the right direction! (I may have to resort to "The TOY" [​IMG] )
