    Question Different Region VC Wads With A Chipped Wii

    I've been researching his for days and surprisingly have not found any solid answer yet.

    It's very simple.

    I have a JAP Wii with a Flatmod chip installed.
    Can I play other region, US or PAL, Virtual Console, or WiiWare, games on it?
    Will just playing them through the Wad Manager be safe?



    Any help would be thanked in every way possible . . .

    Its safe to play them but you will need a cios, region free channel hack and wad manager to do so. You can get region free channels via starfall, preloader or startpatch.

    Thanks so much Dogeggs - you helped me a lot so far in my travels of Wii hacking.

    I got the Wad Manager installed.
    How would I know what CIOS to use? I've been searching this without much luck.
    Also, Starfall and Startpatch are unable to work on a JAP Wii. I managed to get Preloader in but have not found any hack.ini that works with a JAP Wii.
    Am I out of luck?
    Will a full system region change move me along?

    cios selection depends on what you plan on doing with your wii, if you want to use the usb loader try 10-13 or 13a/b, start with 13b and if it doesn't work right go back a version and so on...r8 works fine for dvdr loading with an 002 fix loader.
    Region change i don't know about....think waninkoko has an app on his blog for it...?
