    Question about regions

    A family friend of mine who lives in Great Britain is staying with us for New Years's. He is going to bring some of the more party-like Wii games he owns, and he is going to let me make backups of a few he likes. I would like to know how a soft-modded Wii handles regions now that it is soft-modded, so I could possibly play a PAL backup on my NTSC-U Wii. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    You can simply put the disc in and use one of the usb loaders to load the game and play from disc, it will play them but you may have to change the settings in your loader. If you copy his games you will need to look at THIS.

    Are you condoning or condemning piracy with that? I know it is technically piracy but I still wanted to ask it, and try to in a way that would get answered, so thanks for actually answering I'm sure others might have just ignored it.
