The compressed version should have greater compatibility (due to less filesize and easier structure).
SDML only recognizes DOLs, so I can only load uncompressed version of r94. I can actually boot both compressed and uncompressed, but I must have a version of swiss 0.1 and then load swiss v0.2 through it. Now that I remember I haven´t tryied the SD Load method, so I¨ll try also this way later.

emu_kidid, I think it's great that you have added MP3 file playback to Swiss. The sound quality is as good as it should be (I have my GC hooked up to a sound system). Swiss would be better at this than the flawed MPlayer for GameCube if it also supported sequential and repeat playback modes. A timer that doesn't hang up like in MPlayer would be a welcome addition, too. Thanks again for all the hard work.

This was caused by a mergefail in r658.

I have a GC hooked up to a sound system too and I plan to add support for this and other audio formats later down the track ;)

Shortly it should be (but compatibility isn't as great).

It doesn´t work neither with SD Load method, it seems is a problem with the micro sd because I tryed with another one and and worked perfectly. I don´t know why the issue because it´s a Kingston.
Ah, and happy new year guys.

Friend emu_kidid, the most important thing of your work is to achieve the proper function of all the games on gamecube without the drive DVD. Image

Greetings.

hi emu , i tested r93 about a week ago with Virtua_Striker_3_2002_USA_NGC-USA and found it to work quite well i tested it on 1 of my GC's and 1 WII.

Today i tested CAPCOM_VS_SNK_2_EO_USA_NGC-HOLYCUBE and with r93 to r94 i found some interesting things.

r93.........

The game wont boot unfortunately , also i dont need to insert an Original game due to your new Swiss 0.2 r93.gcm which i think is brilliant.

r94.........

Same game tested and it boots ! , although i need to insert an Original game otherwise i get ' Lid Open ' message.


If you want me to try anything or need more info just let me know.


I hope this helps with your progress

hi again i just wanted to mention i checked out the Swiss/Compatibility List and the game compatibility for Swiss is very impressive keep up the good work your doing great.

Also being able to boot games without a Disc is genius , great concept and execution

I cant wait for future developments

Hello,
I have the following problem.
I use Swiss R94 with SD gecko on a PAL Wii with component cables in progressive mode (Wii-setting).
NTSC games start at "Auto" and "480p" set mostly in the progressive mode. For "NTSC (480i)" setting, they start in interlaced mode.
PAL games start at "Auto" and "480p" setting also in progressive mode. For "PAL (480i)" and "NTSC (480i)" Setting the screen stays black when booting. Games that do not support 480p, such as Animal Crossing (PAL) can play not so.
If I set the screen in the Wii settings to 576i, may be later in the Swiss all PAL games with "PAL50" Start, among others, Animal Crossing (PAL).
Is this problem known?
Please, excuse my bad english.

Yes, shrunk ISO files are supported (compressed - like what Dolphin-emu does are not).

Yes, I will make some corrections to this, it can be confusing with so many possible options.. Auto basically means, what the disc wants, use it.

@everyone

I figured something out today , ive been using Virtua_Striker_3_2002_USA_NGC-USA rip and it already is shrunk (669MB). Emu_kidid mentioned to me shrunk images work , i tried VS3 and it didnt work i got a white screen after the Memory Card check. From my memory ive heard of Gamecube games being shrunk poorly so i inflated VS3 with fstfix13f.............

fstfix13f U-VS2K2.ISO f

Then i shrunk it down with GCM Utility V0.5 and tried it again , it now works.

So if anyone is having problems with a particular game it may be the ISO/GCM not Swiss !..........so try my method and findings and see if you can get a non working game into a working one.

s8n187, that's a special case, that specific ISO was shrunk badly - and a few scene releases were. I always recommend trying a clean-unshrunk ISO first before reporting issues :)

Save state of a gamecube game, running on a gamecube.
I don't think that's possible. emu_kidid can correct me if I'm wrong but:
Once Swiss boots a game, be it from a disk, sd card, or whatever, swiss is no longer actually running, with the exception of the tiny bit of information that has the cube continue playing the game from a source other than the DVD drive.
You can't go back to the swiss menu.
I'd say save states can't be done on the cube.

Nukatha, I wouldn't say it's impossible, but I'd rather not do it at the moment (or ever) :P

Basically once I get SD card write support in my assembly code stub which sits in memory whilst a game is running anything like that is possible (screenshots, save states/etc). Save states would be quite slow as I'd be dumping 24MB+16MB+a bit more.. it'd take about 30 seconds to a minute to make the save and about the same amount of time to restore it..

The latest Cobra BIOS (2.0/2.1?) had support for this via the Viper GC Extreme USB Adapter but it didn't work very well as I recall.

ok ok i have understand.. swiss is just a program not emulator...
i am very noob but i try to understand the function of program i use..
SWISS say to wii : 1 read data from SLOT a or B the rest do it all wii (in gcmode).
the problem is make a right command and data for read properly a iso/gcm file from SLOT A or B..
I think this.. people can run a DVDbackup use a wii main menu to run GC games....
NOW I HAVE OTHER NOOB QUESTION!!!
WHEN GCZ FILE COMEBACK TO GCM FILES WHAT I CAN DO FOR CLEAN N MAKE GOOD DUMP FOR SWISS???
WHAT I CAN DO FOR RECOGNIZE IF THE FILE IS ISO OR GCM???? (i have fear i do somethings on iso and it is GCM (AND REVERSE)...
sorry for my engrish!
