Non-Region Updates

Can we add a section about non-region updates? For example, SPM US bricking PAL Wiis? Also, Pokemon Battle Revolution NTSC-J wants to update my NTSC-U Wii - but I don't want to get bricked. Will it brick if I just tell it to update from the Japanese game? It is marked as green in the list, but with no notes... 22:29, 10 May 2007 (CEST)

That can be included in the notes for the game in that region. I played Pokemon on my NTSC-U Wii without any problem. I think (but can't recall exactly) it updated as well. Just make sure you are updated to the current level. I believe the bricking with Paper Mario were only from people who were not at the current level. -- Dsbomb 22:50, 10 May 2007 (CEST)

What exactly is the game number used for? Cant that column be removed?

No, the game number is the release number and should be the same as the one in the gbatemp database

SD Gundam SCAD Hammers (NTSC J) does not work on PAL Wii fitted with Wiinja v2, converted with WiiFrii v1.20, in either 50 or 60hz

Japanese Region Games

Please use the following format for release names "Super Swing Golf (U)(VORTEX)" and do not use the term "JAP" some people regard it as a racist term. Please just use (J). It's obvious enough.

Topic should be changed

to "Partial Region Free Patcher Compatibility List" or something similar, as the compatibility is the same for the chips as it is for the patchers. DGSystems 21:40, 2 March 2007 (CET)

Patcher/Chip/Media should be removed

It should be assumed that the patch may fail using older patcher/chip/cheaper media. If it is required to use a particular media for it to work (unlikely) that could be mentioned in the notes. DGSystems 21:41, 2 March 2007 (CET)

Agreed, do away with the chip and media columns at least. Dirtie 23:03, 5 March 2007 (CET)

Wario Smooth Moves doesn't work for me

Pal Wario does not work on NTSC-U Frezzes after load

I patch USA Wario, but it hangs after I select start in Disc Channel in a PAL Wii. Red Steel USA patched works fine. I use RegionFrii 1.2 and Wiifree in a D2B PAL Wii

I have that problem too what can i do now. Elebits USA and Dragonball Budokai tenkaichi 2 USA works fine. I use RegionFrii 1.2

New table layout

I've come up with a nice new table layout for editing (and oh so slightly better looking) which includes a template, and should make it simple to add entries and change the formatting/layout of the table should we need to in the future.

I've converted everything on this page over to the new format, you can take a look here: Wii Region Patcher Compatibility List

If you see any errors with the data in the list, feel free to correct them.

Any suggestions about what could be added, changed or improved?

Medal Of Honor Vanguard PAL WII-GLoBAL

it's out.. dont have it though..

Cooking mama seems to work

as far as i know, it works for wiikey without any (after saving white screen problem), so far my friend who is using cyclowiz aint having a problem. (using pal version console with verbatim dvd- 16x *burnt speed 16x*)

Trauma center works?

what does it mean in next wiikey update?

from kaishou - In the new setup (which is the update), but i dont think wiikey confirmed that they are working on trauma center so right now i think the data about trauma center being worked on for the next wiikey is completely fake.

i think they ment they are actually working on 100% compatibility for ntsc on pal games and vice versa.. its a pity.. trauma center is actually one of the most original games ever.

from kaishou - lol its one of the reason why i brought a wii

from eternity575 - hey kaishou.. could you mail me if you hear about a solution ?

From kaishou - Hmm sure, the only thing is that im not a registered user lol, i might register but i think im too lazy :P but ill email you, or if you want to email me or something just email me at (ahh nvmm you already know my email)

Cooking Mama

"Must have your wii system language set to English Risk of Bricking autoupdate launched" What does the later part mean? Is there a recent auto update patch as well as with SPM?

kaishou - i think this is a false information because my friend has a older firmware for the wii (no internet) and his lagnuage is set to spanish, he played cooking mama for more than 4 hrs and it dont auto. someone just put it that it wil auto update and mess up your wii just to piss you off. that what i think.

I believe the DVDs have the update patch on them. I loaded up Blazing Angels PAL on my USA Wii, while my wireless router was shut off. It applied the update successfully and then loaded up just fine. --Dsbomb 01:30, 19 April 2007 (CEST)

Please test someone Kororinpa PAL on Japanese Wii.

can not find USA version of this game on edonkey p2p. Only PAL version available which i'm downloading very slowly. Can anyone test it?

Rayman Raving Rabids

I am not 100% sure whether the compatibility list is restricted to issues with backups or encompasses original discs as well, but the original official NTSC(U) disc of Rayman Raving Rabids is working fine on my WiiKey'd Australian PAL machine. According to the list it freezes on startup, so could this possibly be a firmware issue? (I downloaded the latest system software when I set up to visit the Wii Shopping channel for the first time, yesterday) and tried the game for the first time today.

Anyway, there you have it... official NTSC(U) version of Rayman Raving Rabids works fine on (Australian) PAL Wii (can't comment on backup, as I have not made one).

Any chance you'll be able to make a backup (using the SD card dumper app or rawdump) and test it out? --Dirtie 02:03, 28 April 2007 (CEST)

Not anytime soon I am afraid... anyone else able to do this? Hello? Bueller? Anyone?
