    Wii not asking to play GC games in Progressive Scan

    I've recently modded my Wii using the "Mod Any Wii Guide" and the guide for using AnyRegion Changer (went from NTSC to PAL). All the modding seems to have worked fine, but I've noticed that when I insert PAL Gamecube discs I am not asked after launching them from the disc channel if I'd like to use Progressive Scan. Isn't it supposed to ask every time, even if the Wii is set to 480p? I'm not sure if I'm actually launching my PAL GC games in 480p.

    I have tried holding B while launching but still haven't gotten the prompt, and I've checked my game (Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour) against lists online to make sure that 480p should be available for it.

    It is supposed to ask (only on compatible games). Have you set your Wii settings to HDTV 480p and hooked it up via component cables?

    Yeah, changed Wii settings to 480p and have been using the Wii 2 HD hdmi adapter. The fact that the Wii allows me to change its setting to 480p should confirm that the cable is working fine, so I'm still not sure why the game won't give me the prompt. I know the game is compatible, at least if the Wikipedia list of 480p-compatible games is accurate. I believe it was asking me before all the modding when I played NTSC 480p-compatible games, so I was worried that something with the mod was doing it, but I dunno what it would be.

    The Game Cube Mios may not be detecting the HDMI adaptor to be the same as a component cable, therefore not asking.

    If you had a true component cable, then I bet it would.

    Also, not all games ask this. The only games that I've seen actually ask this are Nintendo titles such as Pokemon Gale of Darkness, Pikmin, Chibi Robo, etc.

    Ok, I'll give it a try with a real component cable and with a few different games once I have been able to import more. Thanks!

    Haha well, I figured it out. It looks like Nintendo removed 480p output capability from all PAL Gamecube games - even the ones whose NTSC counterparts have it. So I was looking at a list that showed Mario Golf: Toadstool Tour as having 480p support, but that was just the NTSC version. I've seen a couple threads about being able to force 480p on some PAL games using software like Dios Mios. Do you know of any other way?
