    Hello, newbie here. I have a VERY basic question.

    Hello, joshuapaular here. I registered to wiihacks because of one thing only.

    -I have a japanese wii, but I live in a country where only US(NTSC) games are sold. I will buy a US version of okami next week, and try playing it on my japanese wii. IF it doesnt work, then softmodding it is my other option.

    Questions:

    1. Will the US game work on my japanese wii? should I buy one?
    2. If the game won't work, Is softmodding the answer?

    THANK YOU in advance.
    Regards, newbie wii owner.

    Hello
    and welcome to



    Thank you for becoming a member of the best wii modding site around!


    First off you need to read the
    Site rules and try your best to abide by them.

    Now we know the rules its time to find the right guide for modding your wii, I recommend the


    The Softmod Any Wii Guide by Mauifrog

    This guide works for all wii's


    And Bluphant's noobs guide - Basic introduction to wii hacking

    There are also other guides which you can find in the
    Guides and tutorials section


    Once you have completed the guide you need to ascertain if your wii is capable of playing backups via the disc drive or whether you need to be usb loading.


    Wii's post 2009 generally cannot play backups via the disc drive and have to use usb loading.


    I recommend usb loading anyway as you can add an remove your games easily and there is no wear and tear on your disc drive and no messing about with discs etc.


    What you will need to know -


    What drives are compatible -
    Usb Compatibility list

    How to set your drive up -
    Loading and Playing Wii Backup Games from USB HDD


    Once your HDD is setup and ready to go, you will need a program to manage your games!
    Checkout Peire's
    Wii Game Manager Guide


    Now your set up and ready to go, but you run in to a problem with one of your game backups -

    Now if you're a modchip user you need to get over to the
