    Wads in PAL are hard to find. If I try to patch them with FreeTheWads or Show my wads , I get a black screen when I execute them and my wiiremote turn off. I found a guide in reddit but I dont find wwPacker . Any solution without using a loader?
    Thanks and sorry for my english level

    do you install to NAND, or to SD menu ?
    if it's installed to the SD menu, you need to patch your IOS80 (could be dangerous, but nobody reported a brick using the IOS80 patcher)

    The wads only works if they are native PAL , if I convert NTSC wads to PAL using freethewads or showmiiwads, they dont work.
    The only way is change the video mode to force NTSC in UsbLoaderGX , but I hope there is a way to play from the Wii Menu.

    out of the 75 snes wads i have 60 are already PAL & the remaining 15 i used showmiiwads to change region & they work.

    anyway it's been a long time since i used wads so i may test couple of the ones with region change & report back later.

    btw why don't you go with retroarch or snes9x they run perfect on wii u with no limit to the amount of games you can install unlike wads

    I have NTSC wads and a PAL console using USBLoaderGX the wads don't run at correct speed but once I tried Wiiflow they worked perfectly given your TV supports NTSC signal
    unfortunately they're greyscale on my CRT that's when I started fiddling with the settings, in Wiiflow you can set the VideoMode manually to PAL50, PAL60, System Default, Game Default.
    try playing with these settings a little.

    As for the CRT i think i rly need to get PAL wads .. but wasn't lucky enough yet to find a Complete Collection like for NTSC.
