Did you ever look into the 480p video mode forcing yet? You said something about reverse engineering qoob I think.

I did quite a bit, but I still need to try out a few more things.

Any plan to add a feature so we can backup and restore our saves to and from the IDE_EXI/SD Gecko?

I would like a improved navigation system, cause when you have several isos in one single hdd (I've more than 600) right now you can only go up or down one by one iso -maybe if you hit "R" go down 24 spaces and if you hit "L" you get up 24 spaces- and an option by sort files alphabetically.

BBA loading. Never take great advantage because the loader were very incompatible and slow, I think at least more people have a BBA than ide-exi adapter

i totally support this! or maybe the scrolling can speed up if you hold DOWN for more than 3 seconds or something....
please search before you ask - a lot has been discussed already!

If I have to choose, I opt for BBA loading.

But I'd really still want to be able to rip my games through FTP via the BBA (seen this in your to-do list) from the minute I update my Viper's limited plugin space with SDload...

you can easily do this with gcom 2.4. Just use swiss or sdload to boot the dol file.

I voted SMB to show demand for it, but at the moment I'd love that reset feature--especially if it takes less time than the others. It can be kind of tedious booting PSO through to Swiss over and over again testing and retesting different solutions for game compatibility (especially when I know they likely won't work anyway lol).

ocarina is the code engine that Wiird uses. Wiird just connects to the USB gecko to manipulate the debugger thats loaded into memory with the cheat engine and compare data.. Yes thats what you are talking about.

It shouldn't be that hard once ingame-reset has been done:
you mount the gci to RAM,
swiss patches the game to save to RAM,
you return to swiss,
swiss prompts that it is saving to sd/ide-exi,
done!

since swiss is open source - go ahead

Well, it is more explaining how it can be done :p
Doing something like that is far beyond my skills yet.

If patching the game to save to memoy was that easy, then so would be patching it to save/load directly on sd card/ide-exi. I think there's enough space in the plugin for the write code, so that shouldn't be the problem here. As i see it, the problem is to patch all memory card related functions, and i wouldn't be surprised if there are 3 or more and they all would need to be patched. Like is there a memory cad, check the available space, read, write etc. Well i don't even know on which level saving and loading is done.

But this is pure speculation. If you want this and want to contribute, then find the sd card saving patch and (much more important:) its source code for animal crossing. Or whatever game it is that is patchable this way.

It'd probably take a few solid months of 1-2 hours a day to get something like this implemented - far too much to patch, it's like replacing an entire threaded class

Or a dedicated group of coders working on it togeather for a good solid chunk of time. Either way it would be a huge task.
