How to autoboot an ISO from HyperBoot/Swiss upon power-up?

Post by jasonbar » Sun May 03, 2020 9:28 pm

Hi-

New user w/ novice question. All assistance appreciated--probably a quick & easy answer! (I hope!)

Please help me with finalizing my setup:
My goal:
Upon power-up of GameCube, immediately launch a game ISO file. Always the same game; the card has just 1 game ISO on it. No need for a menu or options or anything.

My setup:
GameCube DOL-001
HyperBoot installed in GC
SD2SP2 in serial port
microSD card in SD2SP2
"swiss_r827-compressed.dol" in "HYPERBOOT" directory on microSD card
A game ISO file on the same microSD card


When I power on the GC, I successfully get the Swiss menu.
Within Swiss, I can manually navigate to & launch the desired ISO from the microSD card.

Can I make this ISO automatically launch when Swiss boots?

Is there an INI file for Swiss that will skip the Swiss menu & instead immediately launch my ISO?

-------

Or, alternate path, if it's easier or makes more sense:
Make a DOL from my ISO & just boot that from HyperBoot, bypassing Swiss altogether...?


Thank you very much!
-Jason

Thank you very much!

Do you have any input on my alternate path to achieve my goal?
Turn my ISO into a DOL or create a DOL from my disc?
(which can then be auto-launched by HyperBoot)

Thank you!
