    Rugby League 3 - New Protection.

    Apparently the Rugby League game for the Wii, deson't work on modded Wii's if you buy it or burn it.
    Some of the older Wii's with chips like the Wasabi doesn't work with this game.

    Rugby League 3 – Retail not working on modded Wii



    From the looks of on the games official forum, the game “Rugby League 3″ contains a new type of protection that disables the retail game to work on a modified Wii. A game that is bought, if tried to play on a modified Wii, it will not work.
    Apparently, newer chips, and softmods are working fine, which the wasabi chip and some others have been reported to not work.
    On the back if the game’s cover it clearly states that “Unauthorized technical modifications to your Wii console may render this game unplayable”.
    Clearly, a small game developing company has created a protection system, that big Nintendo themselves could not develop.

    It's softmodded Wii's that are having issues.

    If you have a patched ios53, the game will be locked down.

    I'll have to disagree with you from the offical forums for rugby league 3 it's the mod chips it detects and won't play even from the orginal disc. There are people who have it running in softmod who also have modchips that it won't work on but softmod is fine.

    Yeah it was only on page 4 when I was researching it yesterday. Poor other guy even updated to 4.2 without getting it working still. Kinda feel sorry for him.

    This issue will continue to evolve, but at the moment, it appears that softmodded Wiis can play the original game disc, install a copy to an external USB HDD, and play a backup disc copy while a chipped Wii might have to turn off or put the chip in stealth mode if possible. Both hard and soft modded Wiis appear to need to install a clean IOS53.

    The WODE will play both an original and a backup disc of this game.
