Paper Mario Forum  /  Trouble with vc wad file

I have successfully loaded the jp paper mario wad on my wii, but whenever I click start on the channel, it says "This channel can't be used". I have another japanese wad (super mario 64) on the same wii which works perfectly. What should I do to fix this?


It sounds like the other wad you have is a region free wad. There are two things you can do: you can use a program to make the paper mario wad region free, or you can get a region changer app via homebrew to use on your wii (this also lets you play jp gamecube games and such naturally).

(edited: )

For some reason, when I try to change my region I get the following text below the "reboot to system menu" option:

Saving... Unexpected Error: SYSCONF_SaveChanges Value: -1017

I tried to change all of my settings to Japanese / Japan, but after this only the language is changed. I can change everything back to English / USA just fine. What should I do about this? I tried to use Freethewads but I need some .exe file in order to run the GUI, and the download link on the website (and everything else I can find) is dead.

Edit: I used the wii region changer method on the TTYD page and it worked perfectly. Anyways, thanks for taking the time to help someone like me
