plus that stops working after a certain Wii drive revision and requires cIOS as you said.

On the Gamecube there is a software method to unlock so there's no issues.

Swiss and Cube64 use the same dollz tool from softdev but there is a difference which I think is the issue.. Swiss is compiled at 0x81300000 and Cube64 is at 0x80003100. When compressed with the tool, the behaviour is that Swiss compressed will have an entry point of 0x80003100 and Cube64 will have something higher 0x80300000. Next version of Swiss I compile (shouldn't be more than a few days away), I'll provide an uncompressed version too since compressing it doesn't satisfy certain loaders.

So,can we assume that Swiss's next release is imminent?That's a wonderfull surprise!
Emu_kidid,can you bother to tell us what changes you have implemented in please?
-Can we hope for the config file system?
-And for all the PAL users,have you found the solution to the 576i signal when the Wii is in 480p mode?

Of course,there is always Luigi's Mansion problem and Wind Waker's dungeon map bug.Any news on these?

I am waiting breathless!!! :-)

Saw an update on the source page yesterday?

How's it going?

I'm still waiting on my SD card reader from dealextreme, so no fun stuff for me yet, (if anyone has any experience with ship times to the USA, that would be nice).

Just got my SD card reader.
Cube64 works okay, at just over half speed for Smash Bros, and close to normal speed for Mario64. How did nintendo get Ocarina and Majora's mask to run so smoothly?

Anyways, I also can't get SDload to boot through psoload yet.

Figured I'd mention how I'm doing.

It's a wonder to us as well how they got Majoras Mask full speed on a Gamecube.. but then again they do know both hardware platforms way better than us and their emulator only runs for a single ROM with no menu/etc so it can be stripped down.

As for SDload to boot through PSOLoad, try running it through dollz first (dol compressor). If all else fails, wait a bit longer (sorry about this) so I can compile a non-compressed version.

No reason to be sorry, this is a hobby, not a career (I hope), take your time.

I'm probably doing something wrong here, but the few computers that I've tried to run dollz on to compress swiss got to 99.01% and crashed every time on every setting.
Anyone have any ideas (or have a compressed version?)

dollz is trying to compress a already compressed dol that's probably why? new version is coming up shortly which will feature compressed and uncompressed, or I'll rebuild r62 for you uncompressed - just had too much on my mind to remember to get it done :(

Oh... That makes sense... compressing something that's already compressed. Derp. I really need to start learning how some programming works. I feel useless.
I hope I don't sound like an annoying voice encouraging you to neglect your life outside of the Internet for the sole purpose of allowing one person to use a program that you built in your spare time.

well you need some way to boot homebrew on your cube...but there's stuff like SDLoad + Action Replay or Datel Media Launcher that can do that on unmodded GCs

Some small progress on the GUI front to help with the file manager side of things to come. I have it mostly working but not for certain special file types like memcard raw dumps and .GCI files. Also adding in some BBA support.

Awesome stuff!

The interface looks friendlier than the condensed list format.
