    Need help understanding hacks.ini file for priiloader

    I don`t know how to explain my problem but here goes

    I have a softmodded wii thats on 4.1 pal. I have priiloader installed with a hacks.ini file ( the file is the right one for my system) that i found on wiibrew.

    I know you can use this program to set your machine to region free ( I really want to play my NTSC-U GC games on it, there not copys by the way)

    So what i would like to know is witch opions should i click on to get the GC games working?

    I have tried with enabling Region Free Wii Games, Region Free GC Games (no VM Patch ) and Force Disc Region to Wii Region all on at the same time but no luck. When i put the GC game into the disc channel it knows the game is in there but when i load it i get a black screen

    I bet im doing something wrong so can some one please point out what and what i should do

    Thanks for your time

    Don't use preloader/priiloader for that, it will cause retail gamecube disks to not work from the disk channel.
    Find and follow the guide here to get gamecube backups to work, use either neogamma or the gamecube launcher to play them as it has a submenu to launch the out of region games.

    Im confused, why have they put them opions in there then? I already have a loader that lets me load NTSC-U GC games on my wii so your saying unenable them opions and just stick with the loader?

    I don't know why they do what they do. All I know is that the region free option for somereason prevent retail gamecube disks to wor. Believe me it took a long time for this info to become well known, and now that it has we know better. You will probably have to use a softmod loader to play them since they are not of the same region as your wii console.
    If you have followed the gamecube guide, you will have a mios and a gamecube launcher to work with.
