    Post How to play a USA game on a UK Wii v3.4E?

    (UK based question)

    Hi, my mum and dad got a Wii for Christmas and I bought my mum a 'hidden object' game from the US, not realising that Wii games are region compatable
    After doing some research I can see that I can downgrade from v3.4E to v3.2 and then buy a Datel Freeloader, which should enable my mum to play the game.
    Before I go ahead with this can anyone tell me if this is the best thing to do?
    (I know the obvious one would be to get a UK version of the game, but thats not possible)
    What are the effects of downgrading?
    Many Thx

    Well if you wii is softmodded. you can get neogamma and load it there. All you have to do is force video correctly and it should work.
    Come to the Irc room to get help or just have fun

    Motivation alone is not enough. If you have an idiot and you motivate him, now you have a motivated idiot.

    No I don't have the homebrew channel...So if I get an SD card, download the homebrew channel and then the neogammer?
    How do I force the video correctly?

    It sounds like you may want to soft mod your Wii. At that point you will have many of the options being spoken about here. Most softmod software will get you access to the Homebrew Channel. Although the softmod software you choose you should want to allow you to play all games regardless of region. This is where you have to do your research if you purchase the wrong software you can brick your system trying to play region specific games.

    There are many great speakers and resources in this forum if you want to tackle softmodding your Wii with a hands on approach where you do a lot of the downloading of resources yourself and following directions on how to install and set up these resources. I think if you have delved into this area before and have some programming aptitude or able to follow the directions you can do this. The tutorial section of this site has a 3.1-4.1 softmod Guide as well as a 4.2 Softmod guide for above directions. These are free guides that I think you have to have a little aptitude and might be a little difficult for a newbie. There are software downloads you can purchase online (under $30)that you load directly onto your Wii that will safely do the work for you. You can also find someone to softmod it for you but that can be a more expensive route ($100 or more) I do feel you should definitly stay away from hard modding your console where you have to open up console to get inside and solder a modchip into it. Going directly inside you console will result in your warranty being voided.
