softmod Wii 4.3 US....region locked still?
sorry guys.... quick question.... i have a new US wii firmware 4.3U i think, softmodded successfully. can i play original UK games on it after modding? i ve done some research of the internet and some people say yes. wondering if anyone else is experienced here.... thanks!!
Seems you have asked this question twice in the softmod any wii guide
and now you start your own thread on the same topic.
My guess is you haven't read the forum rules have you?
To answer your question, yes, your wii will play out of region games
through a USB loader. Disc is probably out of the question as your drive
probably can't read backups.
NOTE: I'm going to delete your posts in the softmod any wii guide.
And in future please keep your questions to one thread.
EDIT: Seeing as you have original PAL games, I don't see any way of
ripping them to HDD. If there is a way to get the game iso onto a HDD
(please let me know if there is anyone)you would be able to play them.
But because your drive probably doesn't read backups and SM 4.3 removed
region free I'm not seeing a way. Sorry if my post above has mislead you.

ok thanks for your reply.... but i would like to put my PAL original disc into a softmod US wii. would that run?
well its about 1 year old or so... 4.3U firmware i think, when i bought it
Well SM 4.3 removes regionfree. Downgrading to 4.1 may fix this.
There's an option to do so in maui's softmod any wii guide, as well
as an option to region change your wii.
Did you use that guide to softmod?
yeah i used maui's guide.....
i just want to play xenoblade

This game is UK release only so where did you get it from?
well i bought it of a UK website ....
Well I've ripped PAL games (because I'm in the UK) to the HDD with USB Loader GX. I also have NTFS and PAL games on the HDD and they all play with the 3 USB Loaders I have installed. I haven't changed any settings in the Loaders to enable this they have always played straight off.
