    So I performed a softmod on my Wii to run Nintendont on it to force 480p for PAL GC games and they look way better.

    Some games don’t work in forced 480p mode though. Here’s 2 examples

    Wario World
    Super Mario Sunshine
    Haven’t tested all games.

    What else is homebrew capable of?

    Metroid Prime doesn’t work forced to 480p either

    Metroid Prime NTSC version definitely works in 480p so kinda surprising that the PAL version doesn’t.

    You can also play games from hard drive, though I’m not going to go into the specifics (for legal reasons lol).

    Forcing it on the PAL version makes it run in 263p at 120Hz (according to the OSSC display).

    What if I were to get NTSC discs? Can Nintendont launch them on a PAL Wii?

    Ripping images of discs is illegal in the UK anyway so I am using the original discs.

    In addition to the questions above, is the homebrew channel even legal? I heard such things are now illegal in Japan.

    I’m pretty sure Nintendont is able to launch games region free.

    As to the legality of Homebrew Channel it would come down if if it was considered circumvention of the Wii’s copy protection. Sony once argued in court that running import games was piracy because “the console creates an unauthorised copy of the game as soon as it loads the import game into its memory”.

    I don’t debate this is nonsense I just have to keep the board free of “warez” discussion 🙂

    I just launch original discs with 480p enabled so no issue there. 480p on GC games looks really nice
