Re: Interchange between SP2SD and SD Gecko.

my thesis is that the patches are being applied in ISOS. Your thesis is wrong. Some patches can be applied to the main executable but others on additional files will fail so any game using multiple executables will fail if the patches haven't been written for it. This would also break any sort of D...

Thanks so much. I, the dense person as I am, cannot figure out where to go from here, so if you could help me with that I would be extrememly thankful.

If not, thanks anyway!
Place them on the root of the device you'll be using to rip games to. When CleanRip starts up just tell it to not check.

Re: GameCube tuns on, but no video, and drive doesn’t spin.

Seems like it might be an issue with the mask ROM chip, e.g. CPU is executing no-ops instead of the IPL. This is based on the fact you have no video output and no DVD reset but have a warm CPU.

Do you have a spare powerboard to swap out and check with? (The little board that lives under the mainboard in a DOL-001)

But I'm curious to know how SWISS behaves in case there is not enough space left on the ISO's SD for patches. :?

Re: Panasonic q (SL-GC10-S) mysterious QMode Switch and DVD Multimod apearently from techtronics

This was common back in the day, you would add an extra RAM chip to the DVD board and then perform a region free unlock via an original/authored disc so you can play any region.

Add some pics if you can so people can see what you're talking about.

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

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...

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.

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...

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.
