Game Name?

Region Select

Game ID? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab)


MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab, MD5 Hash: Compute)

The channel is not in my game list, but only in my NAND. Therefore, I can not calculate the MD5 checksum.

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

When selecting regions, it is not possible to select the region because an error message with the error code 109144 appears. That does not happen on my real Wii. At this I was able to select my current region.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Open a channel that calls the region selection. For example, the Everybody Votes Channel and try to select the region.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

Yes, 5.0-6897

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

I have not tested, because I do not want to damage my NAND.

this is a known issue. the same error shows up when you try to use the mail system, even if you set up RiiConnect24 dns.
109144 means you don't have an account
reasons behind this is both WiiConnect24 and NWFC being discontinued
i highly suggest dumping your nand as this will make dolphin have your Wii identity and will have a valid console id and region.

Okay, I did that now. I also have RiiConnect24 installed in my NAND. However, if I want to change the region, I now get the error code 222000.

That one is related to WC24 too.
you can use for more information about wii error codes.

Well, there it is only written, that this is "An error that should not occur." :(

I don't know if Dolphin plans on supporting Riiconnect or anything of the sort in the near future. Calling for assistance.
