Re: Datel SD Media Launcher (product change)

I have a newer (2-3 year old) SDML disc.

When you boot the disc without an sd gekko inserted, or have an SDHC card inserted in the gekko, the discs boots up like an action replay.

It just gives the disc function if you don't have any hardware.

Re: Which chip to get?

I would recommend the SD Media Launcher from Datel. It costs 20 USD or so and boots swiss without any trouble. I don't own a modded cube because it just isn't worth it for me. You put swiss.dol on an SD card along with all your games and put it on slot a. You can also get a second sd gecko and put i...

Re: Swiss ECID collection

So, for an NTSC cubes: 8D at the begining indicates IPL version 1.0 (3 confirms, assuming ashen messed up when typing "1D") XX96X000 seems to indicate IPL version 1.2 (2 confirms) Is it possible that there are multiple FW versions that report as the same thing?

Re: NEW WII SYS UPDATE

You find USB loaders to be unstable?

I have been using USBloaderGX for probably 4 or 5 years and have had no problem.
My disc drive is loud, so I prefer to use the loader.


Mind you, I don't really play any games made after 2008 or so.
I think the last wii game I purchased was Mario Kart.

Re: Project hosting on GC-Forever

I've looked at doing something similar on my servers and it's not as easy as it sounds.

Do you want anybody to be able to upload or just you?
A personal solution is going to be much easier than a public one.

Re: Gamecube Service Disc

I imagine it would be easy. The GC probably just detects the title ID of the disc. If you open it in GC-tool or maybe even a hex editor, you could change the ID and have it boot. However, that would assume that you have a modchip and you burn all your games. With the introduction of swiss, hardly an...

Re: Stella runs very slow in OpenGL mode

Make sure your drivers are up to date. Other than that, I can't really think of any optimizations that could be done. The developer probably hasn't integrated OpenGL support, so it's never going to work right. You could search for an OpenGL variant of Stella, but that would mean the project is open ...

It was opened one to replace the fan. I put in a fan from a chinese 001. The problem arises and 2 ways: After playing for ab...

Re: Going insane trying to think of this game name

It's a little off topic, but when I was making a list of GC exclusives, this one was one of the rarer titles for the gamecube.

I've never played it, but you should pick it up while it's cheap.

I'll keep looking. Maybe it is just really rare.

If there are any US games you are looking for, I can look for spares at the Gamestops in my area. (Complete with manual, of course)
Some of these prices really are the best I have ever seen.
