Need a forwarder.dol

Post by gmipf » Sun Sep 08, 2013 11:12 pm

I need a forwarder.dol to autoboot X:\boot.dol from SD memory card adapter in slot B. SDHC support is important. I want to boot Swiss directly from SD Card in Memory Card Slot B.

I have a Viper GC and want to use the forwarder.dol as plugin. Can someone create this? I think, this is not difficult and it would be eventually useful for other users too.

Thank you.

I think once you've hacked the cube through a softmod, the hack will look for boot.dol on your SD card and execute it. However if it is a very large boot.dol it will not work. Why don't you just stick with the Launchers that are known to work, the no problem launcher "SD Media Launcher" is inexpensive try this or check "Swiss auto booting on Wiikey Fusion" on GC Forever main page

It is difficult if you use libOGC as it likes to bloat the resultant DOL file to be too large to fit as a Viper GC plugin, but if you write your own SD module + use a tiny fat implementation then sure.... it's "easy".

Sounds harder than I thought. You do not want to do it, right?

gmipf I'm looking for the same solution, however I do not expect that anyone start to code such program for the old Viper GC :cry:

That looks awesome but it doesn't say it can launch applications from the SD Gecko...
Also the guy hasn't posted lately.

Oh, tinyboot would be very nice, but it seems "infact" have discontinued the development.
Or is there any download links?
