Help with pal/ntsc black/white screen!!! :(
Ok so, I have a Wii 3.2U and I've been able to play 4 games perfectly, 2 on Wii backup loader .3 gamma (Marion Kart Wii and Mario Party 8 [both NTSC]) and 2 on gamecube backup loader (Pikmin 1 and Pikmin 2 [NTSC both]). Now, I read on some forums that you can download PAL games on play them on NTSC wii, so I thought I should give it a try, since most games on torrent sites with alot of seeds and faster downloads are PAL game/iso files. I downloaded Soul Calibur II (PAL) for gamecube and it downloaded in about 10 hours going at a very slow 10-20 kB/s. Anyways, I burned it on a DVD-R 4.7gb memory disc with ImgBurn at x2 and once it finished, I plugged it in my wii and went to my homebrew channel. I selected the Wiigator gamecube backup loader and when it started reading the disc, my screen went crazy, going to black and white, going kinda up and down. I was able to see what it said and i pressed auto-select button and my screen went black, but i could hear the sound. I reset my Wii and started the game up again and tried pressing each button and I think it was R that got me to a viewable screen, flickering up and down. I was able to see some stuff, but I reset. When I started up the gamecube loader again, this time I pressed X I think and i was able to see the game perfectly, except it was in black and white. The sound worked perfectly, the only problem was that the screen was black and white. I tried Region Changer, but that didnt work, and I also tried region frii, but it scrwed up my T.V and it took me a long time to fix. How can i fix this problem? Do I have ti buy a NTSC>PAL or PAL>NTSC converter to view it in color like this one?:
MayFlash PAL to NTSC Converter - PC034, $31.95
Thanks for any help!
Do people not know what it is? Or is it because my question is so big people are too lazy to read it, hahaha.
I have downloaded many games in pal for wii and have played perfectly in backup launcher forcing ntsc. As for gamecube games I would assume you can do the same but I have no Idea. Some pal games dont work for me even when i force ntsc so I would have to download the game from my own region. As stated before I would think not all pal games work when you force ntsc in gc launcher since its not perfect. Try the game in your region. Ps. I had slow dl speeds before and it sucks.
ok i see, does anyone whats the button to force NTSC for the gamecube backup loader?
and would the converter i set the link for in my first post help the black and white screen? is it worth buying?
Theres a region free gamecube backup launcher. For wii games that are not your region, you need to use regionfrii to change the region to your region then when you use backup launcher gamma you need to press 1 to enter settings then force ntsc.
you kno u can load backups in the gamma .3 loader right.... S
I have tried 2 converting Prince of Persia and Pikman2 using backup creator, or using regionfrii and brickblocker. Im burning using sony dvd-r at 2x. Pikman2 shows up in the main channel in color but then gives a disc error when you click start.. Prince of Persia only loads in backup launcher gamma 0.3 but only plays in black and white. Pikman also only plays in black and white thru gamma.. Forcing NTSC with or without vidtv patch doesnt work. My system is 4.0u

I got PAL pikmin2 by torrent and applied wiiUR-1.0 to get rid of the update from the iso.
This is all the knowledge I have about wii hacks
When I click START, to start the game I just got a black screen.
What I need to do to play it (which I assumed is the same for any PAL game)?
