    Why can't I play PAL games on my NTSC system!!! I tried everything!! Please Help :con

    I installed 3 different backup loader channels and I have been able to successfully play downloaded NTSC region games but PAL region games do not work for me. When I try to play them, they are either black flicker, or just black. I ran the PAL games through the wiiscruber, brickblocker, and regionfrii and they still do not play. I installed ios 249 when installing 2 of the backup loader channels, and I installed ios38 when I installed the 3rd backup loader channel and none of them will work. I tried to force NTSC, and VIDTV and still nothing. The games I tried were: Trivial Pursuit, Mind, Body, Soul - Nutrition Matters, Animal Crossing Lets go to the City, Cooking Mama 2, Family Party 30 Great Games, Pirates Hunt For Blackbeards Booty, and Guinness World Records The Video Game.
    Can someone please point me in the right direction, I know I am doing something wrong but I don't know what.
    Any help appericated.
    Thanks

    those particular ones just may not work on ntsc system... i my self have some pal games that do work on my ntsc system with force settings but i have also downloaded some pal games that wont work no matter what i try, i dont have any of the games you have listed but i do have some pal games that work....as for wiu 1.1 or any of those programs that say they change the game region in my experience none of those ever worked they say its changed but when you try to run it it still dosent work so don't believe those...if you download a pal copy that wont work with force ntsc then try to find a ntsc copy or anything but i can't remember if this solves that problem but i think if you buy the component cables (if your tv support it) for it and set it to 420p it solves issues with out of region games i believe

    Thanks for the quick response. I understand maybe a couple of those pal games not working on my NTSC system but all of them? I thought the same thing about the wiu 1.1, region change my ass... My component cables are in the mail and should be arriving shortly and I will retry the games with your suggestion. There are a couple lists of all Wii games and if they work or not on NTSC systems, and I think maybe 1 or 2 of the games that I listed were on the list for not working. I also have the new LU64 serial # Wii and I stupidly upgraded it to 4.0, do you think that might have something to do with the PAL games not working?

    um i assumed you were on 3.4 then used waninkoko upgrade to go to 4 or did you update through nintendo...i couldn't say 100% if that caused it or not but i will tell you that i used waninikoko's upgrade to go to 4.0u and my issues with pal games never changed the ones that did work still do and ones that dont work still dont so shouldnt be an issue.....i dont know about the list but one pal game i have that works is endless ocean one game i downloaded then didnt work was pikman & trauma center new blood...i have about maybe 8-10 pal games that work but dont know all the names right now and they are older...seems like alot of the newer pal games don't like to work ...

    by the way i am just using regular a/v cables not components just to let you know

    The only PAL games I'm aware of that will not work, even when forced on NTSC are Little King's story and Pikmin 2. There could be more, but i've never heard any complaints about the ones you listed.

    Ill add some to your list ossot. I have tried Gravity pal, WWII Aces pal, and PDC Pro Darts Championship 09 pal dont work when you force NTSC. Regionfrii does work when changing the region. I have about 25-30 pal games and only those 3 I mentioned above did not work. Gravity and WWII Aces I just simply got the NTSC copy afterwards. The Darts game is not out yet in the US. I also downloaded a backup launcher gamma wad which when installed, automatically forces NTSC everytime you start it.

    In a kind of same problem but the other way round scenario, how do I get NTSC/imported games to work on my Pal Wii using the Coverflow usb loader app? So far I've just been using normal Pal games from my hard drive which all work fine (although I have noticed that when I have finished a game and want to load another one, I have to unplug/plug in the hard drive's AC adaptor otherwise it won't load) but now I am thinking of getting US import games but want to be able to use them on my system. Any ideas what I need to do?

    Thanks

    In coverflow, just go into the options screen and you'll see an option to Force something. Just set it to always force PAL. You'll be good regardless of region after that.

    I can't get Pro Evo to work. I'm gonna load up a gamma with 002 fix later and see if that helps.
