    Unhappy Apologies! and please help :(

    Apologies to the staff for my previous post, I really wasn't paying much attention to what I was writing and it simply slipped my mind that what I said would have breached the rules. I really didn't mean any harm and hope that you do not mind me reposting this, with the other section edited out. I would greatly appreciate the help on this one issue if allowed.

    I recently ran a softmod on a wii console for my boyfriend's Christmas present, and as he is in the US and I'm in the UK, I used the region change as given in Mauifrog's "softmod any wii" guide. I have installed hbc and USBloaderGX on many wii consoles before but never done a complete region change before. I set everything to NTSC/US from the options and set priiloader to "any region" as always.

    This might seem like a bit of a thick question, but since doing the mod and shipping the wii console to him for Christmas, he can no longer play the two PAL games I included in the package (these came with the wii when I bought it so I thought I'd toss them in just in case) The wii is saying that it "cannot read disc". Am I to assume that this is simply because of the region change and that if he was to go to a store and buy a NTSC game, it would run perfectly fine, or is there another compatibility issue because the wii was running 4.3e when I ran the softmod?


    I've heard of some issues people have been having where they use any-region-change and it has given disc read errors because the homescreen is a different region to the game region?

    Thanks, and again - sorry to all the staff

    Thank you for apologizing. I took a look at your previous thread which was locked due to piracy (with a 16GB USB stick containing downloaded games). Even though we condone piracy, you honestly told that you downloaded the games on the USB. You also said the two games you had trouble with were original discs. Since you were honest about the games on the USB, I will assume you are being honest about these two games being original discs and therefore help you.

    What I would do is just launch the games using the USB loader. Launch the USB Loader, pop in the disc and it will ask if you want to rip it to USB, or if you want to play it. Click play and it should work.

    Hello and thank you for your reply

    Yes, the games that I am querying with the error are on original discs bought with the console I will ask him to try playing them via the loader and not the disc channel, I assume this is because of the region change I completed during the modification process? I assume that any games he buys from the store can be loaded onto usb and backed up in this manner also, regardless of their region?

    Thank you for the understanding also, I try to be as honest as I can, hence ending up with a locked topic in the first place

    The problem is indeed due to the region change. There is a priiloader hack to enable loading discs from other regions, but in my experience it does not always work (could be me though, might be an interesting alternative!). You can play any game on disc, regardless of the region using the loader. Although some games might require certain cIOS to work. It depends.

    Thank you very much! I asked him to try via the loader last night and it worked! The screen flickers a little bit, but again, I'm assuming that's because his tv settings are NTSC and not PAL. However, he installed it to the usb stick and it won't load from the USB, I'm hoping that's just a Cios issue that I will have to look at when I get over there... either that or the usb isn't fully compatible....

    I'm pretty sure the any-region hack in priiloader was turned on, I do that as standard on all the wii softmods I install, although it doesn't work on my wii either, though mine has the newer drive type that apparently won't read out-of-region discs regardless of the softmod?

    At least he can play his games now ^_^ thank you!

    Your loaders have options to force what ever region also. and the usb device has to be formatted correctly.

    Did I come off like a jerk?? Read more here
