    Exclamation Help with underscan ( Black Bars ) issue in some games

    Hello Everyone. I have an Australian PAL wii using 4.1e menu and Neogamma R7 backup loader.

    So far all the backup games I have played have worked perfectly in widescreen e.g Punch Out USA Wii Sports Resort USA Muramasa Demon Blade and more.

    But when trying to load Super Paper Mario USA and Virtua Tennis 2009 PAL I get black bars on left and right side of screen and i can see the picture is being underscanned.

    Ive got my wii setup to HDTV and Im using cables also my tv is a samsung 32inch LCD.

    The only way i could get rif off the black bars and get full widescreen is by setting wii to 576i and Neogamma to force video of PAL 576i

    My question is why is this happening to these two games only? And why does it only seem to go away when forcing 576i...I really want to use EDTV/HDTV and 480p and have full screen.


    Any help or input would be much appreciated.

    Thank You.

    yes it happens to me but when i put it to 576i it covers more of the screen black bars become thinner compare to hdtv/edtv only happens to some games. now talking paper mario i dont have any problems with that game. resident evil4, mario and sonic olympic them games i have that problem there are more but ill leave at that. i have decieded to do nand restore to recover from this issue keep checking underscanned post im going to update and let users know if it resolved the issue doing a nand restore.

    why dont you try pal version of paper mario that might get rid of the veritical bars.

    I am having the same issue. It is only some of my backups though. So far the Boom Blox and also on Sonic and Mario at the Olympics. On Boom Blox i get black bars on top bottom and sides. I am using Wiiflow. I will have to check what the setting are for the game i think i have the wiiflow setting set to force ntsc. I need to check what the individual games are set to. On paper mario I get the small bars on the sides not really noticeable.
