    (May not be the proper place for this,sorry.)


    Okay,so a while back I was playing the PAL verson of No More Heroes just fine after I went in Neogamma in the settings and turned on "Force NTSC"

    But now,with Pikmin 2 PAL,no video formats work.

    Force video to "Wii" goes to a black screen

    "Disc" obviously goes to black and white(default)

    NTSC goes to a green screen

    and the NTSCp or whatever goes to a black screen.

    And so on.


    There any way to fix this?

    Unfortunately this game only has the pal video. So it won't work unless you use a TV that supports pal video.

    Pikmin 2 is one of a handful of games that requires that you use component cables in order for it to work on NTSC televisions. Even then, I've heard that the TV must also support PAL as well. It's very weird.

    No problem,guess I either need to get a gamecube controller and the GC verson of the game,or just play the NTSC-J verson.

    Yes, these appear to be your only options. You'd think that someone would have gotten around to translating the NTSC-J version or patching it with the language files from the PAL version. Oh well.
