    i was thinking the same thing as i just installed this all yesterday....

    i'm not sure what changes you'd have to make.... i tried a bunch of game backups via the neogamma chan and they just work, leaving everything at the default setting...

    Hello and welcome to the wiihacks community.

    I know you are anxious to get started; but, there are a few items to cover before you post your questions or start doing anything to your Wii.

    Make sure you read the rules of this site. There are a number of tutorials and guides available to assist you. Many of our new members find the tutorials for softmodding any 3.1-4.1 Wii and any 4.2 Wii particularly useful. Make sure to either look through the site tutorials and guides or use the search function before asking questions. While the moderators, staff, and members of this community are willing to help you, some effort on your part to read, research, and follow the rules is expected. To get the best response to your question(s), post in the associated forum areas. This is very important as inappropriate posting could get you restricted to the reading room or even banned. If, after looking at the tutorials and trying to search, you still need help or just want to post a very basic type of question, go to the

    Wiihacks also has a chat room on irc://irc.uicn/wiihacks. After reading the irc rules, please feel free to join in the light-hearted chats and activities. While any irc client can connect to #wiihacks on the UICN, ChatZilla, for those with Mozilla’s Firefox browser, is easy to install and use.

    If this site and our members have provided substantive help, you can Donate to the forum and get a nice banner under your name and gain access to the donator forums.

    Enjoy your stay with us. Here is the NeoGamma settings information you wanted:

    Hooktype: Not routinely enabled. It is used mostly for debugging and Ocarina.
    Ocarina: Self-explanatory. You are either using Ocarino cheat codes or you are not. This setting has options for Ocarina SD or USB devices.
    Alternative .dol: Needed for certain games-less than a dozen games right now use alt.dols. Set to the disc setting enables a search of the disc for .dols and allows one to select the .dol to be loaded. Enable this only for those games that require an alt.dol to play. The "SD & USB" setting will load a .dol from SD or USB rather than loading the main.dol from disc. The .dol is to be in the NeoGamma folder and has a required nomenclature.
    Boot language: Option sets language to force. "Console Default" forces no language, "Auto Force" forces English on NTSC-U games, and Japanese on NTSC-J games. Forcing the language of the disc is required for some out-of-region games.
    Force Video: Option sets video mode. "Disc" is the default and nothing is forced. "Wii" forces the video mode set in the Wii settings.
    Patch Video: Should not be routinely enabled. Patches the video mode(s) inside the main.dol to the game's initial video mode. This addresses those out-of-region games with odd coloration.
    VIDTV Patch: Not routinely enabled. Used for persistent display problems with out-of-region games.
    Patch Country Strings: Not routinely enabled. Required for some out-of-region games; primarily needed by Japanese Wiis.

    A lot of trial and error is involved when playing out-of-region games. Try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Sometimes an out-of-region game just can’t be played; one sign of that is a green screen freeze.
