Re: XenoShell Custom Green Splash Screen after XenoGC Port

The lack of replies on here should be indicative of how useful (or not) such a thing is to use in this day and age, but don't let it discourage you.

I'd recommend you make the DOL work in standalone in an easier to debug setup and then worry about booting it off the Xeno

Re: Viper GC

Okay did some more reading through yagcd. Since the gamecube RAM is 24MB big I'm guessing the state file is just a RAM dump plus some additional info I don't know about (btw the statesave.exe prints 'NO ARAM' at the beginning so I'm guessing ARAM is not being dump). My first question would be how i...

Re: Debugging homebrew in 2020

When I need that kind of debugging I use a USB Gecko and gdb (load the elf to have symbols obviously). There's a stub for the BBA too I believe but I've never used that myself. It works fine albeit slowly and there's no support for memory breakpoints afaik. It's pretty crude and IDE integration woul...

Re: IDea for boot chip.

Don't waste your time, this is just a drive patching chip for certain revisions of the Wii drive that allowed it to read backups. It's closed source and specific to Wii. XenoGC is open sourced and does the same thing. HyperBoot is available for non drive based homebrew booting and GCLoader is availa...

This is a bad idea, the disc can split over time and cause the laser to wear out very quickly.

Re: Prepare swissGC before burning.

What are you expecting? When you boot from DVD and have nothing else inserted, it will browser the disc you just burned which in this case is Swiss itself and it only contains the bare minimum to make it bootable on the GameCube.

Re: Qoob Chip

While you suggest swapping the chip as a feasibility, can't the board be "cloned" or redesigned from scratch to accommodate SWISS? Besides, why does it have to be a Qoob mod chip, can't SWISS be but on any chip perhaps? You need to stop, this seems to be far beyond your understanding. Swiss can be ...

The amount of memory required for a basic modern web browser exceeds the amount available on the GameCube. You'd be better off writing a VNC client but even then what's the point :)

Start FSPD on your PC (noting the port it's running on etc, some pre-compiled windows binaries only run on port 80 despite y...

Re: Swiss and In-Game-Reset

Depends on the cube, I have swiss as my igr.dol on the one I play games on (who plays games, it's all about trying them from a different medium for 2-5 minutes and then going back to look at the swiss source on what to improve next!), on another I have usb-load to load other DOLs from USBGecko etc.

It's basically just porting the patches from Nintendont and making it take up less memory or hoping the games work with less arena memory.

Re: I've Installed a xeno gc and adjusted my laser but burned disks still won't read.

If you hold down start while booting an original disc (after the GameCube menu) does it go into the game or into something else? That will tell you if at least the xenoGC is wired up properly (or try an import/out of region disc). Sounds like your laser is on the way out if you still can't boot them...

Re: Viper GC Dev API

I never managed to get the API to work with libOGC, it potentially does too much at init/startup and the ViperGC shuts itself off from the world to protect itself. Back when I was working on GCOS I'd managed to use their API but it's very temperamental because of the way the ViperGC communicates wit...

Re: Minimal ipl boot Viper GC

"a lot of garbage compiled in" = GCOS and Cobra didn't use libOGC. Basically everything these days uses libOGC and has all the bloat compiled in as a result. Have you tried using dolxz or dollz to compress it? (dollz has a viper flag you'll need to use)
