Re: Gamecube "An error has occured", won't attempt to read discs

EDIT: well, I think I've figured out the problem... This thing is full of rust, dust, and plenty of bugs! absolute mess. I might take a look later to see if just cleaning it will help or if there's anything I can take a look at but It's probably not something I'll be able to work out :P I've come a...

Re: Swiss AR Loader issues

Alright, you'll need to use a 2GB or smaller SD card, format it in windows to FAT32 (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.

There's a DOL folder flat inside the 7z attached to every release, I'm not sure where you're looking?

Re: Auto boot Swiss & load Backups

I'd recommend something short term like SDML or a XenoGC + Swiss on DVD-R, or even a save game exploit until the new drive emulators hit the public at some point. Do you feel confident that the new drive emulators will actually get developed? They're more than developed at this point, it's just a m...

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

To set the modchip facts straight: XenoGC only supports patching the 3 standard drive firmwares found in retail GameCubes. The Q is slightly different. You can see in the source of the XenoGC that it supports only the 3 [04, 06, 08]: XenoGC's QLite Main.asm.c libOGC supports the 3 standard drives an...

Re: Trying to install Swiss and GBI, but all I have are SDHC cards

Action Replay/SD Media Launcher don't support SDHC at all. Do you have a Wii? If so, set up a memory card for a game exploit and then boot directly into Swiss/GBI from there (and Swiss will allow SDHC to work).
