    I want to install the UK (PAL) News & Weather WADs on my US machine - but it occurred to me that they behave based on the location set on the console. Considering that I can't change it to the UK, is there any point? What would happen?

    Also: where to get them if it would work? I take it that it's not illegal to link to them as they are part of the firmware?

    ...really?

    Anyone else think so? Another thread had this subject in and they thought it OK to have the channels.
