    Wiu1.1 does a couple of things, one if the iso has a wii firmware update then it can be removed (patched). This is to prevent bricking your wii if you were to try to update from a game that is of different region that your wii. So just to be on the safe side its good to patch the update in the iso. Secondly, it can region patch the iso, meaning that if its for example PAL game you can patch it so that its recognized as NTSC-U or NTSC-J. This step is not really necessary as most modchips allow all region games to be played.

    The only game that I know of where Wiu1.1 says its the wrong size is SSBB as its game that requires Dual Layer disc.

    so you say do the patch threw wiU but what if another update came up like wii made another update then what


    SO i have a ntsc usa console so if i just download ntsc games then i dont really need to worry about patching i can just do the update threw the wii

    so just to be safe im just not gonna or have to do anything with pal then im pretty much safe

    and you said you can change the region so i could just change evrything to ntsc if i had a pal game i could just change it then i really don't need to worry about the patch i can do it threw my wii right

    Whenever you download there is small chance that what you downloaded may be mislabeled e.g. a PAL game that has been region patched to NTSC and still contains the PAL update. So it is always safest to update your wii via the Wii Settings menu and never from a game.

    Patch a game to a different region does nothing to the update which still remains for the original region.

    Yes that is the safest way. Also if your wii is at 3.2 or lower and you have a mod chip and you are interested in the homebrew channel then I suggest you install the homebrew channel using the DVD iso method before updating it to 3.3. A lot of people haven't updated to 3.3 as there is no real benefit and all the games still work at 3.2.

    Apparently the Force Unleashed has a 3.3 firmware update.

    Even if it does, the game does not require the Wii to be at 3.3 to play the game, so still safe to remove it from game.

    somthing similar happned to me when i download mario strikers charged, the file said ntsc and so my bro burnt it and put in the wii. When we ran the game it asked for a update im like im already at the latest so why is it asking. We then ran the iso through wiu it turns out the game was a pal region patched to ntsc, but the update was not removed. I now run all games through wiu just to make sure before i burn. btw wiu dose not work with scrubbed dvds but wum dose
