    Main issue is the console. NTSC GameCube supports 50hz, but not PAL color.
    Therefore a component cable is in most cases required to avoid black and white. (I don't have a signal analyzer to determine exactly why)

    Of course, 50hz also means owning a capable TV.
    Even then Freeloader game compatibility isn't perfect. One reason is NTSC consoles lack a language menu, PAL games that use it will run English only.

    Many PAL games DO support 60Hz, and that is actually NTSC 60Hz, so look those titles up online. You hold down B on boot, and you're asked if you want 50Hz or 60Hz. I've tried PAL games with 60Hz mode on a US Cube with a US TV, so I know it works.

    True. To set the record straight on 50hz, per the topic's first post, I can attest component fixes it.
