    I'm now downloading a dvd5 release of ntsc ssbb that has already all of the videos relinked
    But to get it running on pal will require a few more steps I guess. So which is better to use to get the game running?
    Burn the dvd5 directly and use pal freeloader, or first patch the main.dol with the video mode changer?
    And also, how do I remove the update from the disc?

    Use the video patcher.

    When i use freeloader i allways get blackscreen.
    Using video patcher i get nice 480i

    On the DVD5 version I have Freeloader only blackscreens if I don't set 480i in wii settings>screen first. Output is then 480i NTSC and displays correctly on the screen no overscan or bars.

    Which is logical I suppose since NTSC Wii wouldn't have a 576i setting.

    Lots of posts/methods on how to handle the update the easiest being with Freeloader, but I found out too late to do it myself.

    Just leave it.

    I suggest patching the __update.inf file on the disc itself and trucha signing it. Then you can let the update run with no ill effects. At the same time, use the Wii video mode patcher on the main.dol, and afterwards use the latest regionfrii to change it to PAL.
