    On game backups what is the difference between NTSC and PAL

    I have a few backups of my games and do not know the difference between the PAL backups and NTSC. I did try searching but the terms are too short and it will not give me results. I have a 3.2 soft modded wii thanks to Dogeggs guide.

    Keep in mind that we do not support piracy on this forums.

    On the box of your wii and games it will say NTSC or PAL, which is basically the region of the wii and games. A wii will not run games out of it's own region. (Even though most backup loaders can load out of region games)
    You will not see these terms anywhere when making a backup unless you're downloading the games from the internet.

    Also,
    NTSC
    PAL

    I don't think you've done much searching really

    English is, in fact, a european language... So yeah, high chance you can play the games in english unless stated otherwise.

    Yeah I live in a pal area and speak english I have no problems with any pal games
    most games will have an option to select language when you begin.
    Obviously stay away from pal games that are in another language (i.e. something you dont understand)
    Some pal games are larger in size because of the multi language nature of the disc

    Thank you guys. Yeah I was wondering why one file was so much smaller but that makes sense about the other languages.
