    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) [​IMG].

    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 [​IMG] 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?

    For some reason, I had thought you guys across the pond were getting Brawl in April.

    I come to find it's not until June 27th.

    They really gimped the release dates...
