Wii: NTSC to PAL ISO Patcher released!

Patch and play NTSC games on PAL Wii units








SYNDiCATE have just released an impressive new tool that is said to patch NTSC game images, allowing them to be played directly on PAL Wii units. The patcher offers the same functionality that the WiiKey modchip offers, but will of course work on any Wii unit that has been modified to allow the playback of backups.

The team say that the patcher will work on approximately 70% of current NTSC games (same as WiiKey), and should even work on Japanese NTSC games.

The tool works by modifying a section in the image that contains region information. Surprisingly; this area is said to be unencrypted. Download and NFO file below:

We have also started a compatibility list for this patcher.

Is this the deal where you'll still have to hook that cable up to the Wii's DVD drive and run that patching program everytime that you want to load ISO's?

I *knew* something like this was coming before there's a real region-free modchip

I hope it will be updated to support more games...or that at least some releasegroups will patch the big releases manually...

a real region-free mod would be much nicer, though...still, I'm going to get a modchip as soon as possible
