isn't it fixed ?

#2 Updated by knuckles500 almost 11 years ago

To load a ISO so that it'll show up in the Disk Channel (not sure if ntsc
games show up, but I've heard pal ones do) - while in the Wii OS, you have to go to
Emulation>Load Disc in the other window (the window that isn't displaying the wii os)
and load your ISO.

I guess this is fixed, it's just that I don't think NTSC games work with the WiiOS yet.

only pal wii games work.
mios is not emulated so no gc games work
wiimenu has an unknown country code so by default we boot into Pal
we could take some code from gecko os to boot the wiimenu region free

"we could take some code from gecko os to boot the wiimenu region free"
sounds great!!

...does it have negative side effects?

#5 Updated by bkchaw almost 11 years ago

overwrite setting-eur.txt with setting-usa.txt and it will detect ntsc disc

#6 Updated by bkchaw almost 11 years ago

when booting wii menu, it will always copy \Sys\Wii\setting-eur.txt to
User\Wii\TITLE\00000001\00000002\data\setting.txt

the setting.txt stores

AREA setting: Used to determine which region the System Menu should be
GAME setting: Used to determine which region of Discs and channels the System Menu
will boot.
VIDEO setting: The Wii's video mode setting.

there aren't any negative effects that I am aware of, the other option is to have a
config setting to choose which setting.txt file is moved, and the default boot region

#8 Updated by bkchaw almost 11 years ago

maybe you can just edit the GAME setting in the setting.txt to boot games from all
regions (region Free)

#9 Updated by ChaosCode almost 11 years ago

its broken again

#10 Updated by lpfaint99 almost 11 years ago

it still works ok for me

#11 Updated by kevinx0404 almost 11 years ago

Can you explain how it works? I can't get it to work.

#12 Updated by lpfaint99 almost 11 years ago

set your default iso to a wii game and load the system menu, you can then use the
change disc function to switch to another disc. It is still not possible to launch a
game from the disc channel, and without changing the text file per comment 6 only
works with pal wii games
