Is there a 240p compatibility list available for Wii VC titles in other regions (e.g. Japan)? I recently discovered the following Japan Wii VC titles DO NOT support 240p:

Ai Cho Aniki
Gradius
ImageFight
ImageFight2
Salamander

Do the Japanese MSX VC games support 240p? I've always wondered if they did. I know BlueMSX for the Wii certainly doesn't.

I know MegaMan 9/1 are natively rendered in 480i, but which resolutions are Contra/Castlevania Rebirth rendered at?


They can be displayed at 480i or 480p, so I'm guessing 480p. I think Castelvania has a high-res title screen, so that probably rules out an internal upscale from 240p. But I've displayed them in 240p from Dolphin and they looked great.

Yes, I checked a handful (Aleste, Parodius, Quarth) and those support 240p.

Cool! I'd like to get my hands on some of them.

I have just finished converting all Wii VC NTSC-U TG16 (including CD) releases to 240p. All of the conversions have been tested on my Wii. Let me know if you are interested in them.


I would love to have the 240p converted NTSC-U TG16 CD games if you still have them. You guys are amazing.

I've noticed something where the horizontal resolution is a bit off on some games, namely Castlevania X and Metal Slug series.

I'm not sure if there's any sort of fix to this?

Did you double check the aspect ratio settings?

It was a long time ago at this point but I want to say that there was a Sunday Livestream with My Life in Gaming where they mentioned this.

It was when they were working on their Castlevania Requiem video, said they were surprised by it.

I'd eventually love to make a "rompack" of all VC games (and maybe even MM9&10) converted to 240p. I bookmarked your guide when you posted it, but never found time to go through the process ;/

I hate to be that "new guy" but I would love these as well. Playing Gates of Thunder so blurry is painful. Please PM me.

I can't comment on the others, but I can confirm Mega Man 9/10 cannot be forced into 240p by any means I've tried over the years.

With HBC and Wiiflow, the games can however be forced into 480p.

How?! I've tried to force Mega Man 9 into 480p using different tools (including Wiiflow) years back, and they always started in 480i.

Also didn't manage to force Castlevania Rebirth into 480p, for what it's worth.

Can someone give me a quick sanity check re: WADs and regions?
I have an NTSC-J Wii, I can install NTSC-U WADs right?

You can install them, but most if not all out-of-region VC/WiiWare titles will give you an error message when you try to run them. Pretty sure you need to patch the system somehow to avoid this. I used to successfully do this with old StartPatch hacks on an NTSC-U Wii, but on the NTSC-J Wii I use currently I never got those to work, and the newer and recommended "region free everything" hack on Priiloader didn't work for me either, but that's what I would try first.

Thanks. I think I must have done something in the past to that effect, because i just tried then and they seem to work. Worst thing about hacking is remembering exactly what you did so long ago!

Hassle-free way to install wads from another region is to install them to an emuNand and run them from USB Loader GX
