I've gotten this same problem using both Preloader 0.29 and the latest Priiloader (which is what I am currently using). I have doubled checked the hacks.ini code several times, and I am using a version with the proper line breaks (dos style, not unix). While most of my hacks seem to work (i.e. move disc channel, region free discs, etc...) when I boot out of region discs using the Disc Channel (loading PAL games on a NTSC box), the region is not getting forced to NTSC, it loads in PAL. I have the Force Disc Region hack enabled and the out of region disc DOES show up in the Disc Channel, and the animation works properly prior to loading. I have tried the Force IOS 249 hack, and tried loading SystemMenu using IOS 36,60,222,223&249 via Priiloader...all still don't stop the disc from loading in PAL.

I have cIOS 249 (wanikoko's rev14), 222 and 223 (last two via Hermes v4 222 using 37&38 merged, 223 using 37&60 merged), cIOSCORP v3.5, Priiloader, BootMii as IOS, etc...

Any help or ideas are appreciated.
