    So, I know that you can enable region free options in priiloader
    But without priiloader, can I region free my vWii?

    Ehm yeah... not exactly.
    So, I downloaded one of those Wii VC that you can install on Wii U.
    The download is USA, my wii u (and vwii) is EUR

    I'm not sure about what you want, Wii virtual console on Wii U (the ones you buy on eShop)?; virtual console games on vWii side?; or Wii games on vWii?

    Ok then, I guess he just need get a wad from pal region, or patch the usa wad with regionfree. For retail ones I don't think there's a permanent solution, I would go with riivolution, priiloader is risky imo.

    sneek has all the preloader hacks abilities...

    code from the smenu.c 4.3e system menu version part of sneek code
    (other region are in there too)

    Code:
                                    //No Background Music
                                    if (HACKS_NBM) *(u32*)0x0136BD5C = 0x4E800020;
    
                                    //Move disc channel
                                    if (HACKS_MDC) *(u32*)0x013B099C = 0x60000000;
                                    break;
                                case 546: //4.3E
                                    //Region free Wii games
                                    if (HACKS_RFW) {
                                        *(u32*)0x0137E370 = 0x4800001C;

                                    }
                                  
                                    //Auto-Press A at Health Screen

    Use USB Loader GX or Wiiflow to launch Wii channels, Wii discs. (No regionlock !)

    Ok... I decrypted the game... It contains a fw.img (probably vWii fw) and frisbiiU.rpx(dunno).
    The rom is splitted in .nfs (max 256 MB)

    — Posts automatically merged - Please don't double post! —

    And can I change my vWii region? On Wii there's AnyRegionChanger, does it work on vWii?

    It doesn't work because I don't load the title from the Wii Menu but from the Wii U Menu

    C0mm4nd_, Did you ever figure out how to get the vwii vc to work out of region? I am trying to do this now with pikmin 2 eur on my usa wii u. I hacked in and changed the region in the meta to my region but i just get a black screen.
