PostHelp needed: Making my original Wii multi region
by ITSMILNER » Fri Jan 08, 2016 9:11 am

Need some help, first if I explain what i'm hoping to achieve i'm hoping someone has a simple easy solution

What I want to do is set up my original Wii console to play just Gamecube games. Most of my games are PAL but I do have some NTSC games plus I also have an SD media launcher which I use to play emulated NES, SNES and Megadrive games.

How can I mod my Wii in order for me to play all the above? Is there something I can just stick on an SD card and transfer to the console?

Bannerbomb is easy to use. A little bit intimidating when you end up in black screens with white text like an old bbc, but it worked nicely for me.

Cool, i'll have to watch the video tonight as i'm at work but is it just a case of downloading a channel and installing on my Wii?

I've viewed the video but the links in the description that are supposed to take you to the downloaded seems to be dead links? Anyone have a link or know where I can get these programs from?

Also, once I do install like the video, do i need to download anything else or will that be all I need to play all my stuff?

Search for letter bomb, that should be your way in. Then you can use that to install all the fun things you need.

If you have the original media, shouldn't most of that stuff just work? I mean, I assume not, since you're asking but I'm curious as to why.

I assumed it would but the freeloader disc nor SD media launcher disc wouldn't work. Wasn't sure if it was to do with the firmware

Look here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/how-to-softm ... es.360687/

I used this guide to softmod my Wii (and play NTSC discs on it no sweat).

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Banner Bomb exploits a weakness to install the homebrew channel and once that's installed the world is your oyster as far as software goes.
