Special Fuck You to Ngamer magazine for ripping off my technique and not crediting me.
BEFORE POSTING ANY QUESTIONS PLEASE CLICK ON (More info) FOR FAQ's...
How to play your Import Gamecube games on a Wii with the use of a Freeloader or any other kind of mod chip or swap disc!!!
Takes a few tries to perfect the technique, but you'll quickly get the knack of it!!!
Also after mass demand heres the answer to the most frequently asked Questions...
WHATS AN IMPORT GAME?
It's a game from another country/region like Japan Etc. It won't work on your machine, the same way as another region DVD wouldn't. Theres no legal reason why you can't play them, they put region locks on them to stop their other divisions creating more profit.
WHATS A FREELOADER?
It's a disc released by Datel for the Gamecube which lets you play import gamecube games (on a gamecube) You can also use an "Action Replay" which does the same thing, but also allows you to cheat on games.
SO WHY WONT THE FREELOADER WORK ON A WII ANYWAY IF IT'S A GAMECUBE DISC?
Because Nintendo are dicks and blocked the Wii from using it. No idea why they did, it's no skin off their nose if it did work, they're just being pissy.
WILL IT WORK ON MY US/EUROPEAN/JAPANESE Etc. WII?
Yes!!!! It'll work on any machine.
WILL IT BRICK THE MACHINE?
No, It's a software glitch, not a hardware or Flash glitch.
WILL IT WORK ON NARUTO GEKITOU NINJA TAISEN 3/4 OR DOSHIN THE GIANT?
Yes, it works Perfectly!
To be able to play Naruto 3 though, wait till after the intro ends, then when the menu appears press eject, then push the disc back in again and press start, and hey presto, you're ready to play.
WILL IT ALSO WORK ON IMPORT WII GAMES?
Sadly not no, only Import Gamecube games, the only current way too play import Wii games is to have a mod chip (like the WiiKey) installed. A Freeloader will also work, as long as you've not updated the firmware for about a year.
WILL IT WORK ON COPIED GAMECUBE GAMES?
WILL IT WORK ON COPIED WII GAMES?
WILL IT DAMAGE MY MACHINE?
No it won't, But I wouldn't reccomend you do it for years on end, (just like anything that it's not really designed to do) just till you can buy a Freeloader. It's also less of an annoyance every time you want to play an import GC game.
WILL IT WORK ON MY WII NOW I'VE UPDATED IT TO V3.00 or higher?
Some people claim they can still, while others can't. So I can't give you a 100% definitive answer.
If you can't get it to work after three or four tries, the answer is most probably no and your only other option is to either buy a Gamecube and a Freeloader or have your Wii chipped. Sorry!
CAN AN GAMECUBE ACTION REPLAY WORK ON A WII?
Possibly, it depends on how old the Action Replay disc is, early ones were blocked out, so unfortunatly not no, but later copies can.
