    ok, long story short, my broher want to get a wii u to play project zero. He got the physical copy of the euro copy order but as we all know wii u is noo region free. My local gamestop still have the super mario world wii u bundle available as as far as i know that one is still 5.32. IF I get that and apply the hack, would the wii u be region free and load game from euro?

    being on 5.3.2 and using Loadiine doesn't make your console region fee but when you use Loadiine you can play games of different regions (not physical originals on discs) so if you rip the physical disc and load those files with Loadiine then yes you can play them on your US WiiU. I'm using a Japanese WiiU and I can play US and Eur games fine with Loadiine.

    TSK said he was working on a drive key style region free thing or something, but then he got a cat-dev and that was the end of it......

    But you can't rip the discs yourself because they're not the same region as your console.

    ok so... in short, if i got a 5.32, it is possible to play the game if i rip it or "obtain" it with loadline installed?

    For a USA Wii U:
    Can only play USA discs
    Can only "rip" USA discs (content and RPX/RPLs)
    Can play USA games through Loadiine that were ripped yourself or obtained elsewhere
    Can play EUR/JPN games through Loadiine that were obtained elsewhere

    That's a good point, thanks for clarifying. Damn Nintendo need to stop that out dated practice of region locking. Even Sony doesn't do it anymore!
