    play other region?

    Hi, I am new to this and was wondering if someone could help me with a question.
    I got wiikey2 installed, HBC working, and play backup copy in the same region without any problem.
    If I want to play other region(PAL), what do I have to do?
    Thanks,

    On the WiiKey 2:
    Download and burn the update / configuration disc from the WiiKey 2 website.
    Disable all regions from updates

    To be safe:
    BrickBlock the .ISO of the PAL game

    Play


    All of these steps are done to prevent a possible PAL firmware update on an NTSC system. If you accidentally update, you'll brick your console.

    Just out of curiousity ... what PAL game did you want to play? There's no NTSC version of it?

    Thanks for quick reply.
    I actually done all of the above steps already but wasn't sure about the region.
    My system was @ v3.1 so I push it to v3.2 and block everything.
    I want to play "Hasbro Family Game Night" since it is the version that I downloaded and tried to play but get a disk error but wasn't sure about the region.

    I have been searching around for more explanation on the cannot read disk error but haven't really find a correct solution.
    I am using Ativa DVD+R

    Still the same issue with not being able to read the disk.
    I will run to the store to get some other brand.
    Also, with happen if I switch the firmware for the ISO from 3.1 PAL to 3.2 NTSC
    Thanks for all the help!!

    I believe Ativa is an Office Depot house brand. Yeah ... don't use those.

    Use a quality DVD-R. Try to find Verbatim.

    There's a problem with the booktype on the +R's, that's why they don't work.
