Noob question launching game from GCloader

Post by Fugazi70 » Tue Aug 18, 2020 2:27 pm

I have a GCloader and Sd2Sp2 (to save config)

So I picked force 480P
And when I launch my games it says patching 1/2 then it launches the DOL

What exactly is it patching ? I assume the video but why does it need two patches

Are these patches inherit to Swiss or stored somewhere ?

The apploader and main DOL. Certain games will have more.

The patched files are stored on the SD2SP2, and are necessary for everything to keep working across resets, boot through IPL, game loading other executables, etc.

Okay so I should see some files related to patching on the sd2sp2?

The only files/folders I see on sd2sp2
Are GBI directory
MCBackup directory with my memory card backup files
IGR file which I use for in game reset
Swiss.ini

Should I see patches or game related entries?
Do I need a seperate folder ?

Thanks again

SWISS patches folder is hidden, inside of it are per-game patches folders. ;)

If I understand what's been modded to come with the next release, SWISS will tell you what specific file is patched.
DMG/MF OC, AGB/SC miniSD, NTR/NeoMK3, USG/flashme V8/SC miniSD
DOL001(EUR)/RGB/GCPlug/GBP/SD2SP2, RVL 001(EUR)/RGB/CMP/WiiSD

Zelda WW with Tingle Tuner in split screen was what the GC RF modulator was made for! (Video)
