Im thinking of grabbing a Wii-u and modding and adding an external Hard Drive….

My question is , do the roms need to be region specific, i.e. do I need PAL roms (as I am in UK) ?

I know only loadiine uses region free so pal uk jpn usa works,iam talking about loadinne.

“Loadiine is region free, allowing you to play games from another region, but sometime it might require your intervention to edit some files.“

Mocha cfw or rednand i have no clue about region free,somebody else?

Roms for snes and other emulators has no problems.

Hello Ninja UK:

I run all Regions on my WII U from my External USB HDD but I have my haxchi set up so I do not directly boot to it through the WII U NAND! This is an option when you set up haxchi. I also make sure that all games I install are through my SD Card ISOU NAND and that they are installed directly to my USB HDD this way I am set up so I do not risk bricking it. Just be very careful when playing with fake signed files. These files can and will brick you if you are not set up the proper way and you accidentally install them to your original WII U NAND instead of the SD ISOU NAND. I would go into more detail but the WII U is a very complex setup for me and I have not played with mine in about a year or so and I do not know if new things have came to pass since then or not but the plain and simple answer is yes anything will work game wise as long as the game files are not corrupted and install properly!
