    Guide to Neogamma settings?

    Hey guys, this should be an easy one for someone out there...

    I've looked around for instructions on what all the various settings in Neogamma do. There's a lot of them and most of them I have no clue what they even are... I've searched around a bit but haven't come up with anything.

    Any help? Thanks!

    I guess you are asking about something like this:

    Hooktype: Not routinely enabled. It is used mostly for debugging and Ocarina.
    Ocarina: Self-explanatory. You are either using Ocarina cheat codes or you are not. This setting has options for Ocarina SD or USB devices.
    Alternative .dol: Needed for certain games-less than a dozen games right now use alt.dols. Set to the disc setting enables a search of the disc for .dols and allows one to select the .dol to be loaded. Enable this only for those games that require an alt.dol to play. The "SD & USB" setting will load a .dol from SD or USB rather than loading the main.dol from disc. The .dol is to be in the NeoGamma folder and has a required nomenclature.
    Boot language: Option sets language to force. "Console Default" forces no language, "Auto Force" forces English on NTSC-U games, and Japanese on NTSC-J games. Forcing the language of the disc is required for some out-of-region games.
    Force Video: Option sets video mode. "Disc" is the default and nothing is forced. "Wii" forces the video mode set in the Wii settings.
    Patch Video: Should not be routinely enabled. Patches the video mode(s) inside the main.dol to the game's initial video mode. This addresses those out-of-region games with odd coloration.
    VIDTV Patch: Not routinely enabled. Used for persistent display problems with out-of-region games.
    Patch Country Strings: Not routinely enabled. Required for some out-of-region games; primarily needed by Japanese Wiis.


    A lot of trial and error is involved when playing out-of-region games. If you get either color issues or a green screen freeze try different combinations of Force Video, Patch Video and VIDTV. Sometimes an out-of-region game just can’t be played.

    Thanks, that's a big help. Basically I need to not fiddle with that stuff unless necessary. Good to know!

    Don't be so sure what's self-explanatory with us newbs; I had no idea what Ocarino was.

    I think Ocarina has some problem and is not being used right now. I did add the term cheat codes as the clue, though.

    Has there been any sort of compatibility list compiled with regard to NG r7 and what's required with out-of-region games? I'm a n00b just getting started with burning back-ups and have yet to find anything like that.
