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

Those who don't know how to edit the page, add your results here

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.

I agree that you should use J because we have U and E and whatever, using more letters than necessary makes no sense. But cut the crap about the racism, it just ain't true.

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)

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)

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?

Do the lockup games working if you are using an Original Disc not an iso burning?

Do the lockup games working if you are using an Original Disc?

I have a game that I want to buy, but it said lockup at here. Could someone help me answer the question?

-- Answer: They don't work even if you use original disc.

-- Answer to the Answer: See my comments re Rayman Raving Rabids. I have the NTSC(U) original and it works fine on my Australian PAL machine (with WiiKey installed). It certainly does NOT lock-up on load (as is stated on the listing here) and is playable... I don't know if this is the case for all original games or for that matter a backup copy of this game, but the original of Rayman Raving Rabids most definitely IS working.

Mario Strikers Charged Football (PAL)

Use this area to discuss the Allstars release of Strikers/PAL, rather than filling up the notes. After the dust settles, a summary can be put into the notes. -- Dsbomb 02:22, 26 May 2007 (CEST)


  1. Works fine for Wiifree, Chiip, and Wiikey
  2. It must be patched for Cyclowiz and Wiinja Deluxe
  3. The auto-update may ruin the Wii Settings if you don't have the latest (v2.2) update from Nintendo.
