Re: Starting Zelda Ocarina of Time standard version

Try the following and see if it works:

- In the settings area of Swiss, enable "Alternative Read Patches"
- With or without the above option, press B instead of selecting an individual DOL file.

Did you write these, if so, source would be nice if someone wanted to port it or build it for another OS.

Re: First modchip recommendations?

I'm looking in to getting a nintendo gamecube modchip! Any first chip recommendations? If you really want to do a hardmod, I'd have to say XenoGC, or any clone of it. Simply because it's the easiest to find these days and readily available. If you want the "best" in terms of how quick it is to boot...

Re: gamecube plays game disc then msg "an error has occurred"

128 MB aka 1019 block memory cards are known to be problematic with some games (official or not): https://www.nintendo.com/consumer/memorycard1019.jsp

Try a smaller memory card and see how you go.

Re: Swiss AR Loader issues

Alright, you'll need to use a 2GB or smaller SD card, format it in windows to FAT16 (default cluster size), then put a single DOL file on it for starters.

This video should help you out in case you're missing something obvious: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_h1mnOUv2DY

Re: Swiss AR Loader issues

Can you elaborate which AR you have and if it's one that natively supports booting DOL files from a SD card or not? Post a picture of it either running or of the packaging/disc. If you have an old version, the kind where you'll need to use something like the 29 line cheat code, you will need to use ...

Re: dreampi to cubepi?

For whatever reason, it doesn't matter if you have good signal strength. People will have their Wii and router right next to each other, and they still get disconnected without warning. Something about PSO dislikes using Wi-Fi on Wii for like 80% of people. I've had this happen when using a NTSC Wi...

Re: Patch MIOS to access more RAM?

That demo needs 128MB Main RAM, you'd be better off patching in code to utilise virtual memory (would result in some bad slowdown potentially), or to reduce the amount it tries to look for.

Re: Cause of Gamecube freezes with buzzing sound

<snip> Any ideas? I don't know whether to try to get new discs or a new gamecube. When the disc can't be read in a retail GameCube game, it will tell you by means of an error screen. What seems to be happening with your GameCube is more a hardware level problem that can't be reported because it isn...

Re: Made an account just to post how impressed I am with the Alternate Read update.

The old read method would prevent interrupts by performing the reads inside the interrupt handler routine (bad). Extrems has found a nicer way to attach into the idle time each game has without blocking interrupts.
