Re: [How to] Boot swiss from memory card (GameCube)

Hello guys and sorry to someone for this post as probably some of you will find it rude, but... come on! :roll: Check out this homebrew. It can do things Nintendo doesn't allow, like move files between an MC and an SD gecko. http://wiibrew.org/wiki/GCMM First of all, did I ever ask about such stuff?...

Re: [How to] Boot swiss from memory card (GameCube)

Yes, I tried running SWISS from SWISS already but wanted to try different method this time.

Even just for fun, I am curious how to use this memory card way anyway.

Re: [How to] Boot swiss from memory card (GameCube)

alzen, what is your setup, what are you trying to achieve. There's probably more up to date methods you can use so it's best to know what the current setup is. Hi emu. My setup is very basic, regular PAL Cube chipped with Xeno. What do I want to do? Update my SWISS version but I would prefer to swi...

Are there any serious SMS hacks in progress?

After searching on YT I saw a few SMS hack videos but I'm confused - are there any serious projects among them? I assume that people just show what they can hack in SMS but is it just for fun or can we expect something big like Star Road for M64?

Re: Goals for Swiss 0.4

@Streetwalker: Not really as the main attitude of Nintendon't for me is the possibility to use HID controllers - that's why I want to boot SWISS - to be able to run GC/Wii homebrew and control it with HID controller instead of GC one. I really like GC controllers - best I've ever used; but in HID co...

Re: Goals for Swiss 0.4

Nice! Would be nice to have bootable SWISS iso that runs on nintendon't - just to run homebrew apps with HID controller.

Hope you'll make it :).

btw. does it read SD card from the main Wii's SD card slot?

Re: Goals for Swiss 0.4

Is there any chance that Wii's version of SWISS will allow HID gamepads support the way NINTENDONT does?

As NINTENDONT is open source it should be possible.

NTFS is supported by some of them, and in that case you do not have to split files.

Re: Unmounting WBFS pendrive on Linux 3.13, how?

Hey there, problem solved. Best way out is to use regular FAT32 formated pendrive, create "WBFS" directory and put .wbfs files there(you will need to split bigger games into more than 1 file, didn't do it but Wii Backup Fusion or sth like that for Linux can do that, probably some other programs too)...

Not at all mega, Linux has some great WBFS managers. Only problem that I have is that I would like to unmount wbfs drive, and maybe it's not even needed. I'm just worried about my pendrive and I would prefer to eject it the right way. Still, I will try to find out is it needed or not, and if not - w...

Re: Unmounting WBFS pendrive on Linux 3.13, how?

I know that we can make FAT32 partitions replacing WBFS partitions(there is a script for it), but I must fund some time is there any way to make such a partition and avoid the way to make WBFS first and tune WBFS to FAT32 later. Still, if we have FAT32 umounting shouldn't be the problem anymore. Her...

I cannot get it out of my head. I'm using Linux, currently Ubuntu 14.04. We have WBFS managers for Linux as well but as the system doesn't recognize WBFS partiions in default configuration I cannot unmount the pendrive after copying games to WBFS drive. And I always unmounts pendrive after moving da...

I agree. I mean, I've found WiiKey for let's say 12£, used one. But didn't want to do it. I'm rather saving money, and while I have Wii it's really pointless.

Still, thank both of you for sharing your opinion.
