    Confirmation of 4.2 update - Now locked to Wii native region ?


    Somewhat stupidly updated my Wii last night to 4.2.

    I have a D2Ckey chip to play backups and not really bothered about homebrew etc.

    Just to clarify, has my Wii now been region locked so that I can only now play PAL games and not NTSC ?

    Yes, you can only play PAL games now.

    OK, that's what I thought. As I say no biggie for me as I'm not really into Homebrew or anything. Just need to be careful what version of a game I "acquire".

    I have a NTSC first generation wii with yaosm 3.2 installed, I also updated to 4.2, but if u also softmod the wii and use the neogamma you will be able to play games from another region, give it a try

    Wasp2 4.2

    I have a wasp2 solderless chip. With 4.2 system update on a PAL.

    It plays some of my older games whick must be PAL. But get the eject and restart console error when using other games.

    So as i understand it is now locked to PAL. So does that mean only UK games, or can i play MULTI 5 games which are also pal.

    They work fine on my other Wii with D2CKey Chip and 4.2 update PAL.

    This is really annoying me, and WASP 2 need to make an update dvd to fix this.

    PAL discs should work whether Multi-5 or not, the UK and mainland Europe are considered the same region as far as Nintendo is concerned.
