For Gamecube you'll have to wait a day longer - a lot of badgering today and I still have yet to release an Xbox update - so you guys need to wait for a while.

Oh my godness!! I saw they stated in the libretto site that the gc would support this emu, but it was so time ago that I thought they quit porting this to gc, since some is times so difficult to port wii emus for the gamecube due to hardware limitations, etc. Let´s cross our fingers and hope they relese it as soon as they can to test it.

The Gamecube release also has been postponed indefinitely until the video driver has been sorted out.

Thats probably for the best considering the GameCube version is going to be a one off release with no support as the authors stated.

Plus after the rushed/broken wii release a few weeks back they need to focus a little more and ignore the haranguers.

what a load of bullshit!!!!
it sounds like they only released a gamecube version just for the sake of doing so to add another console on their list: "GAMECUBE: OWNED"

i really enjoy the comment they make about not offering support to fix or bugfix this gamecube release version...
the very best news of all to top it off: they released this gamecube version without even confirming if it will boot on gamecube..

...very impressive RetroArse

They have too many platforms to port their emus and the Gamecube port needs too much time to get it working well due to limited RAM. So if you guys have interst and time, then you can better it because it is a open-source project. After all, they are only 3 guys and they have too much work to do.

I tried it and it was beyond my expection! Even CPS2 games could run at full speed! Though only one game (Super Puzzle Fighter II Turbo) could run, others CPS2 games got code dump screen after ROM was loaded. I think they are just too big for Gamecube RAM. I alse tried Nestopia core and it ran super mario 3 perfectly.

FBA core is too big and swiss won't let you boot it. If you could seperate CPS1 drivers out and compile it then we could get a perfect CPS1 emu for Gamecube.

Boot.dol doesn't work and after loaded it with Swiss, only black screen shows.

If someone here is interested in this project, please tweak its performance. Thank you in advance.
