I just saw the new video about the upcoming homebrew channel and saw the Gecko Region Free option. So it's possible to load ntsc games on a pal wii with it and without the freeloader?

Yes technically. Though it's still not as good as the Datel's Freeloader.

I have better results with the GeckoFreeLoader.

The next version will include a channel version as well.

We´ll have to wait to see if the GeckoFreeLoader will work with the homebrew channel, but it won´t work with any homebrew launchers, so the seperate channel sounds good.

Till now I´ve just used the Twilight Hack.

Any idea if Brawl NTSC is working with it on a PAL wii?

EDIT:
Ok, i found the answer. It's working without a problem with the new version of the loader (online too)

For me it works much better on SSBB than the Datal FreeLoader. (I´m playing with the DL version)

Also works a lot better with No More Heroes!
Yeah? Then it must be improved a lot since last time

Good to hear.

Last time there were problems with some titles that Datel's Freeloader didn't had.

Does the Gecko region free allow to play PAL NGC games on a US Wii? Or is it just for Wii games?
