I second that notion :D does it show the info like gcmm or sdmc because gcmm didn't show the header info properly and showed junk symbols after the title.

You've misunderstood.. what I mean is a game saving its savegame file to a SD card.

So you won't be adding a file manager for it also?

That is awesome news.. I only have a 251 block memcard and it's ALWAYS full. What about games like PSO, will it work?

Seems as if crediar has released a handy app for Wii.

Taken from Gbatemp:


-------------------------------------------------------------------------
MM v0.1a by crediar
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

NMM is a tool which patches all GameCube Memory Card code to access the
front SD card instead.

This obviously only works on a Wii in GC mode.


Setup
-------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.Download MIOS v10 from NUS

2.Use the FixELF tool to create the final NMM file
FixELF mios.app NMM.elf 00000008.app

3.Copy the created file to your virtual NAND to the following location:

\title00000010000100\content0000008.app

4. Then just put a GC game into the Wii and load NMM(MIOS) by any means.
a. SNEEK: Just insert a GC game and start it from the system menu
b. xNEEK+DI: Install any GC game to your device using the DiscEX tool
also insert the game you want to play (This is just a workaround!)

Real NAND is currently not directly supported, one could build a .wad
using the created .app file and install that to the NAND.


General Info
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

You should remove all GC memory cards before using this for the case not
all patches could be applied!

NMM outputs some log info via USBGecko and also some parts to a log file

Currently the search code is a bit slow but the next version will cache
the offsets allowing a faster boot, so for now just be patient.

FAQ
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Does this only work with original games?

A: NMM only works with original discs, or anything the drive accepts
If you have a drivechip installed a copy would work aswell.

Q: What about a version that uses USB?

A: That's sadly not possible due a hardware limitation.
Same reason why DIOS-MIOS was discontinued!

Q: Will I be able to manage the virtual GC Memory Card in the Wii menu?

A: No.

Q: Where is the source?

A: There won't be any source code, sven gave me a license free version
of his SD/SDHC code.

Game Compatibility
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here a short list of games I've tested personally so you can verify that
your setup is working.

I'm sure people will set up a real list somewhere online.

Working:
Zelda:WW
Zelda:Four Swords
Mario Kart Double Dash
Super Mario Sunshine


Not Working:
Super Smash Bro. Melee
Xtreme G 3
Eternal Darkness
F-Zero GX (does work until after the name select)

Brilliant, although I do have a SD gecko this seems the natural step for Wii owners, this is going to be a perfect addition to swiss :D

Plus my SD card keeps getting stuck in my SD gecko (which is really annoying :P)

I know Swiss is primarily a Gamecube app but to have front SD loading for Wii is a bonus :P
I mean if the capability is there and it's possible, why not take advantage of it?

the reason I don't like supporting wii features like this is because they rely on custom IOS - and getting bug fix requests for things like this is beyond the scope of my knowledge. I can add the functionality, but you're probably better off just using crediar's tool anyway.

That's fair enough, maybe it could be added to Swiss at a later date by Wiipower or someone?
Does Crediar's Tool allow GC games to be played off SD or Does it only allow game to be saved to SD?

it basicly routes the gamecube part of the ios to use the sd card as a memory card therefor you can use it to loads games off sd cards as if they were sd geckos but you can save to the sd card aswell which is a plus
