I just noticed you said it was fixed in r884. Couldn't find it on GitHub. More than happy to wait a while for its release. Thanks for the epic job you're doing!

Also, I'll test the non-forcing video mode and auto SWISS video configuration on the Wii, to see how it behaves, and i'll report if something bugs me.
It's been a long time I haven't used SWISS on my Wii, so there it is:

Pal Wii, component cable, exploit under fire (PAL AUF is a 576lines only game, if that matters)

SWISS auto mode doesn't set to progressive scan at bootup, unless the Wii itself is set to 480p. :?

Progressive forcing isn't disabled (unless SWISS booted in an interlaced mode), so this part is OK.

Progressive scan is disabled when getting back to the Wii menu after having played a GC game forced to progressive scan. :? (actually why I avoid playing GC games through SWISS on my Wii)

I downloaded a Bad Dump of Sonic Mega Collection (J)

It's works without trimming it in Nkit

I'm using the Lastest Build of Swiss

Then don't download bad dumps. A good NKit dump works fine.

Assuming you mean the console, this is what the game is programmed to do.

Can't play more than a few races in F-Zero GX without the game freezing, then restarting.
Sometimes crashing the entire system to a black screen. On v0.5r906

Can't find any rime or reason for it, can play one race, and have it crash on the next. Or Complete an Entire Cup then finish the first race on the next cup, and have it do a crash restart on the following race.

Using a SD Memory Card adapter plugged into Slot B, have tried two different SD cards.

.iso is crc verified against REDUMP.
.iso, and .nikit.iso version of the game don't make any difference. If anything the nkit iso causes the crash to happen faster.

Even tried v0.5r876 which was the confirmed working release on GC-Forever's compatibility list for F-Zero GX, and still get the same crashes.

F-Zero has been shown to be quite sensitive to Video Patches in the past, So I stuck to the US version, with no other video patches then 720Px, setting both progressive mode and 16/9 from the game itself. I haven't played this game recently (not since v5).

Also while I am at it, also would like to mention something about Mario Golf Toadstool Tour.
While it plays pretty much perfectly, there is issues with Yoshi's character model, like the front part of his body/model isn't lining up properly with the rest.

Here are some crappy pictures of what I mean.

Also on another side note, it's very subtle, and I haven't tested it since v0.5r876, but Paper Mario: The Thousand Year Door when walking around you'll noticed a stutter in his movement.
Luckily I own this game and played it straight from the disc without booting from Swiss and plays just as it should without the stutter that's present with Swiss.

USA Version.

Also should mention I am running the game in Progressive Scan Mode, I'll trying playing in Interlaced and see if that also results in the same crashes. I'll also try booting the game from a burnt dvd through Swiss as well. On my modchipped Wii everything ofc runs like an original game, and I get no crashes with said game.

I am not forcing any video modes, just leaving the defaults in Swiss and turning on 480p through the in-game Progressive Scan prompt.

EDIT:
Booting from the burnt disc didn't help (didn't think it would since it still runs through Swiss).
Interlaced mode made no difference.
I even disabled video patches in the Swiss settings for the game since Papy was saying the game seems to be sensitive to video patches, but still get the same crashes.

So at least for me, on my Gamecube, F-Zero GX is unplayable until someone else says they also have the same problem or knows a way to stop the crashes, or it gets patched.
Guess I'll have to use my Wii to play this game until then.

Ok, like I was wondering that myself, but seemed like all the videos I was finding of the game didn't show anything wrong with the model.

EDIT:

Well I am starting to think that F-Zero GX just doesn't like my Gamecube.
I even tried GCOS and booted that game through that, and it still has the weird crash/resets. (Though I booted GCOS through Swiss, I don't know if that matters at all)

I seriously don't get it.This is the only Gamecube game that I've had any serious issues with.

If someone else can replicate what I am talking about, it would be greatly appreciated. It could crash within' the first minute of gameplay, or crash after about 20min or so of gameplay.
Definitely would like to know if it's really Swiss, or just my particular Gamecube or setup.

Until then I'll just have to curb my "only play on original hardware" mentality and run the game through Nintendont on my Wii U. =/
