    System update 4.2 region free "destroyed", Gamecube?

    I have searched around without finding anything about this

    If I update the system version to 4.2, does it only affect Wii games, or will it affect the region free when playing Gamecube games too?
    My Wii games are all PAL so that doesn't concern me, but many of my GC games are NTSC

    I have an by now useless Argon chip, which the team has decided to kill off

    Best to avoid the update. I'm not sure of the definitive answer but I'd imagine that the security check would encompass GC games too.

    Ok, I'll probably wait until there comes a new modchip or solution...Or wait until Infectus pull their heads out of their a****:P

    Been looking at Wiikey2 and Wiikey Fusion actually...Is the only difference between them that Fusion can play from SD cards? Probably going to get one of those, unless there comes a newer chip

    Got a Wiikey2 myself. It works. Fusion gives the extra layer of SD use but is very different in the way that it works. Wiikey2, at least the one I have, sits on the drive board, whereas Wiikey Fusion sits between the drive cables.

    Wode or Sundriver are other solutions that allow Hardmodders to use USB devices to store their backups and in many ways this is the ultimate current solution, but still this can be acheived through software hacks alone, albeit with some risks and problems.

    Ok...Is it likely that the Fusion will be supported longer, since it is the newest of them?

    I ain't that afraid of getting a new modchip and inserting it(the non-soldering ones), but I am nervous when it comes to removing the POS Argon...I paid to get it installed, is it hard to remove?I feel I have a little more insight than I had back then, and I don't want to pay to remove that POS...I imagine it is "just" to see what wires are connected to the chip, and then "melt" the solder-points on the motherboard up with the solder-iron until I can pull the wires and the chip out(along with the update-part)...But I guess it isn't that easy?

    What makes me pissed about the Argon is that even though they can, they don't give a Bleep about releasing an update for the Argon

    I'd imagine Fusion would be as it is supported by more Wii drive boards, including D3-2. It should be a lot cheaper than the WODE/Sundriver options but give you back less in terms of features. Copying of ISOs to SD might be a little tedious when compared to the joy of having 100s of ISOs all stored in a USB Hard Disk though.

    With these constantly evolving Wiis and copy protection coming through it's likely that any chip you buy may not be able to cope at some point later on, so consider that these things are upgrades that will need to be changed.
