    Hi [​IMG]

    This is my first post on these great forums. I hope I can be an active member here.

    I have a question about WiiKey....

    Does installing it on my Wii (NTSC, Canada) allow me to run PAL games? I've been looking around, and there aren't many NTSC iso's around.

    Help appreciated.

    Supposed partial support. And no one knows for sure until one gets their hands on one.

    No, it's not even clear if it's even shipped to retailers yet much less people on gbatemp having one.

    What are you talking about, there are plenty of NTSC backups around, you just are not looking in the right places. The ones you cant find are the NTSC-J.

    There are plenty of NTSC games.
    Its not that hard to find NTSC U/J if you know what to use.

    usenet ftw!

    I found plenty actually.

    What's the difference between U/J?

    Both are NTSC but U is for North America (or USA) and J is for Japan. Normally these are considered different regions by the Wii, even though they both use the same NTSC standard. Wiikey breaks the region locking here to some extent. In theory it should be easier to break U/J region locks because they both use NTSC. PAL might be more difficult due to the framerate standard.

    Sorry for double posting; but I just ordered a WiiKey from FoundMy. I hope it's worth it.
