Hi aLL

Just wanted to know if the pal games will run in progressive scan on the Wii and also i would like some of your experiences if you have tried this.

I'm currently not living at home so i cant try this out as i wanted to see how RE4 would look and also the legendary F-Zero GX also Metriod and the rest :)

any one tried running their PAL games in progressive scan?

ok might be a daft question but its worth asking anyway :rotfl:

pal GC games didnt have a progressive option.

you need the NTSC versions and a freeloader, which doesn't (currently) work on PAL consoles

Yep I don't think any Pal games run in progressive, but I'll tell you Resident Evil 4 looked bloomin good in 576i on my LCD, pleasantly surprised :thumbsup:

im pretty sure i heard that if you hold down B while the gamecube loads, you will get an option to ouput in progressive scan

yeah. only on games with the progressive option.

namely NTSC versions, as i said above.

if you hold B while booting a PAL game, you get a 60hz option, if you're lucky
