    Thumbs up Solution: Playing No More Heroes 2 (NTSC on PAL)

    I've made a little guide for those who are having trouble getting this game to work on their PAL systems

    1. Extract the main.dol to your desktop using trucha
    2. Open GenericWiiPatcher and browse to the main.dol you just extracted
    3. Click "Search" in the video modes menu, then click "NTSC-2-PAL"
    4. Click Save (You must click save otherwise your changes will not be made)
    5. Open trucha, and replace main.dol in the ISO, with the one you just patched
    6. Right click the partition, in trucha, and click "Trucha Sign It!"
    7. Run WiiBrickBlocker on the ISO
    8. Run Regionfrii, change the region to PAL and hit patch

    Done. Load the game back to your WBFS drive, it will still say it's an NTSC game. In your loader on the wii, force PAL50 and it should work fine. I haven't tested PAL60 but you can try that too.

    All required files can be downloaded here. I've also included step by step images. To be honest I'm not sure if step 7 and 8 are required, if it doesn't work without them then go ahead and do it. I have not included BrickBlocker and regionfrii in the download as they can be found everywhere

    This method does not work with Okami, I've been trying to get that game working for ages. Let me know how it goes

    I'm not sure, I use USB Loader GX (Personally I think it's so much better) there should be a setting for video mode. It might be on "System default" or "Autopatch" by default, change it to PAL

    Can you try using USB Loader GX? See if it says the same thing. If it does, then repeat the steps again but instead of clicking "NTSC-2-PAL" click "Advanced" and then a list of video modes come up, right click every single one and switch them to PAL 576i (Interlaced)

    Then, save/trucha/etc

    I don't think you should have to do it again though. Mine worked fine with the steps I've mentioned in the first post, and I tested it on both my wiis with two fresh ISOs

    You can click NTSC-2-PAL first then click advanced, won't really make a difference to be honest. But yeah when you go into advanced, change all the the video modes to PAL 576i then make sure you hit save, and use trucha to replace the file and sign the partition.

    Then in your loader, make sure to force PAL 50 / 60
