Guys please be patient with me, this is all new to me. I have read so many threads in the least 4 days my head hurts.
This is my setup, I have NTSC (from canada) wii with wiikey2 and I also have non modded PAL wii.
Now I had my chip fitted by a shop and it works well. Problems started when I tried my official copy of big brain acamdey after pressing start screen went black and nothing would work so had to pull power and restart.
I had a look in menu and saw firmware 3.1u so I was advise to upgrade, so went on line and upgraded to 3.4u but the game would still not work.
I also lost the abilty to play ssbb, this i have found out because it was scrubbed and the info 3.4 needs from the disc is now missing.
Now today I went and bought wiifit, it wont play on my wiikey2 ntsc wii. Get the same problem as brain acamdey. Tried shrek the 3rd and that is the same too.
So this is what I have,
Official PAL disks that will not work are shrek 3, brain acamdey, wii fit.
Official PAL disks that work are mario kart,mario and sonic at the olympics.
I also have dvd-r's of fifa,super galaxy,cooking mama2,wario and these play fine.
Can anyone help me get these games to work ? Not sure what to do next.
Are the trucha signed? How many times before have these games worked?
I believe the Wii fit will ask for an update to setup the board with your console to play, did it ask you to update or did you block all updates on the Wiikey 2?
Is you ssbb on a dvd5 or dvd9? If it been scrubbed it could have been trucha signed which 3.4 won't let you play
OK guys ssbb played ok all week on 3.1u. Then I updated to 3.4u and now it wont play, yes it was on dvd5. This I have been told is the problem.
WiiFit is brand new official disc and it did not ask for a update. I pressed start and screen went black and I had to reboot power to get back in.
Sorry for sounding dumb but what is trucha ?
When you got your Wii back from the shop, did you do the upgrade to the 1.2 asgard core and run through the config disk.
Look to see what you Wii will update to if anything at all.
A game would be trucha signed if the original iso file/image was custom, were things have been taken out like possibly your ssbb where they may have taken some video scene out to scrub it even more, this will make it trucha signed.
Otherwise if a game has been scrubbed but not custumized than you can still play it on 3.4. Nintendo disabled the option to play trucha signed game with 3.3 or 3.4, I can't remember anymore.

Reason: mispelled trucha
I only sent the drive to the shop and it cam back hard wired with the chip.
I downloaded the 1.2 asgard core and burnt to disk myself, i have ran it and everything looks OK. region is set to free and updates only for usa.
If you look in your setting menu, what version do it say you have, 3.4U or 3.4E, could it be you updated the wrong region at some point?
No its OK it is now on 3.4u which is OK for a candian/usa wii ( i hope .
What I don't understand is that brain acamdey never worked when wii was on 3.1u. Looking back now I wished I never updated to version 3.4u.
OK got hold of a NTSC version of brain academy and guess what it still wont work.
Pressed start and got disc error message press eject etc.
Would be good to know if any of you guys have this game working with a wiikey2.
