    PAL Scarface on NTSC Wii

    Ok so I tried to play a PAL version of Scarface on an NTSC Wii using Wiiflow, and 222v4. I tried to force NTSC, and I got a black screen and my Wi froze. Then I tried the same .wbfs file on USB Loader GX using the same cIOS, and it worked fine. I then realized that I forgot to force to my region, which I think is pretty dangerous if Im not mistaken. When I tried forcing NTSC in USB Loader GX I got the same black screen as before.

    How can I make this work?

    Not to sound condescending but didn't you answer your own question in the post?

    While I do realize that I sounded somewhat stupid there, I absolutely did not mean to play that game without forcing the region, because according to the Wiibrew section on bricks: "Play your own region. Playing games or using Wii Menu channels from other regions shouldn't cause any problems, but in exceptional circumstances something could go wrong" So i guess I just wanted to know a 100% safe way to play this game.

    I've never encountered problems playing Japanese or European games on my US Wii. I think the warning is to keep people from accepting out of region disc updates or installing out of region channels/VC/Wiiware which can cause problems. It's easier to warn against something rather than to explain to take proper precautions. If you have it working somehow as long as you don't accept a disc update or have Priiloader blocking them you're all good.

    If you rip your retail disc to the HDD using USB Loader GX you don't have to worry about updates as it will remove them.
