hi everyone! i recently bought a nintendo wii (korean version) converted to english language and the store owner says that it has been modified. i cant update the wii too he says. i asked him what chip did they use but he couldn't answer my question and just said it was the latest version. i dont know how to check if it has a chip or not so i bought it anyway. as far as i know is that if it has been modified it can playback dvd, play wii and gc back-up games right? the owner says it cant play dvds and cant play gc back-ups too. so im guessing it doesnt have a mod chip. upon browsing the forum last night i came across a topic about freeloaders and soft modding. my wii is on 3.2u firmware and in order to play wii back-ups i turn on the wii, insert the disc and click on the valbox channel then start. (valbox channel = backup channel?) the valbox channel's menu says "force to ntsc loader" ive tried a few games and it works. i tried playing mario & sonic olympic and harvest moon and i get an error saying the disc could not be read please eject the disc and turn off. these are my question: is my wii modded with a chip? is it soft modded,is my wii running on a freeloader? does it mean i cant play new games cause my wii is on 3.2u firmware? should i return the wii back or ask the store owner for a mod chip and what kind of chip? (wiikey2?) hope u guys can help me... im really pissed of at the owner. oh i forgot to mention when i start the game it also displays a green screen and i tried wario something game and the video and sounds is stuttering. is this normal?
