for v0.6r1387, I noticed one of the things added were 'support for PixelFX N64 Game ID standard'

Curious what this is for and how it relates to the GameCube

It's mostly intended for BlueRetro, but anyone may make use of it.

How come Kururin Squash translation v1.0.1 is nkit supported and the recent v2.0.0 not? Are such patched games manually to be added?

The junk data wasn't regenerated for the new game ID. You can add this line under junkIdSubstitutions to "fix" it.

Code: Select all

    <add key="GKQE010000" value="GKQJ"/>

- Force PAL 60Hz mode flag.
- Remove exceptions for F-Zero GX, Super Mario Sunshine.


What does the removed exception mean? It wont force PAL 60Hz for super mario sunshine so shinehax exploit will work?

https://github.com/emukidid/swiss-gc/co ... deda029f98

I am no coder so struggling to read the red code where the PAL releases are removed. Would think it has to stay an exception to have shinehax working consistently at 50Hz? Or 50Hz PAL has to be enforced for SMS?

It means 480i/p can now be forced without going through 576i/p first.

thanks!

by the way, you are a real star senor Extrems :mrgreen: your fullwidth browser mode is beyond amazing!

just wondering, how is the sorting being done? it feels to use hard coded game titles, correct? like resident evil games are properly sorted but then other games like viewtiful joe and super monkey ball show first the 2nd game instead of the 1st game.

also thinking out loud, would it be possible to show double disc games as 1 entry in the fullwidth view and by clicking it, a disc select pop up menu appears to select which disc to launch?

The sorting is still by the underlying filename since the metadata is filled-in later.

"Force network init if ENC28J60 is detected."

Is it only used for debugging purpose, or can we dream of bba games patching to use enc28j60 in sp1?

It's because it can't be reliably detected once initialized. It's already usable for most/all network functions in Swiss and other homebrew.

I noticed that tgc metadata (if present) is not modified but taken over as-is, and if no tgc metadata is available, it takes the tgc filename. The problem with tgc files is that some games have duplicate game IDs.


Would it be possible for tgc files to load the custom metadata from a txt file which has the same name the tgc file? If this can be achieved, maybe a custom banner file with same file name can also be loaded for the majora mask and ocarina of time missing banners... Thinking out loud here, without being a programmer like you, it feels to be possible to easily implement this. The issue with tgc files should not exist for normal games so this functionality can be restricted to tgc files only.

Started playing Battalion Wars PAL on swiss rev 1614. Game saves the settings but doesnt save game progress in slot A. Can somebody reproduce by starting with fresh savegame?

It worked a year ago but not sure until which release...

Remember to test things multiple times. Sometimes "bugs" are actually glitches caused by cosmic rays and stuff. It's happened to me twice that I can remember - once with TWLight Menu, and once while playing a PC game.

Think it was related to a specific cheat code which messed up my savegame. Started with fresh game save and all worked properly

Would it be possible to have 2 types of igr? For the games which crash with normal igr button combination it would be helpful to have another combination to hard reset the cube (not resetting back to swiss menu) Would this be possible? Tired of pushing the power button and having to get out of my chair :)


Also noticed that Dolphin is always auto showing the 50/60Hz selection screen, when on swiss we need to often press and hold B. Would this be something which can be integrated in swiss to always show the video mode selection screen?

Other idea... I really love the GUI of the latest versions. What would make it perfection would be to show double disc games like single disc games on 1 item line only, but next to the region banner square disc 1 and disc 2 logos. When scrolling down in the list, Disc 1 is selected by default. When on that line pushing Dpad right, 2nd disc square logo is selected. Banner obviously will only be the one of disc 1. That would be perfection :D
