I have to apologize,

I was a bit over slept and had a following option that negated the offset farther down the instruction list. Yet it would have been nice to have an example in the Wiki.

I also wanted to thank you and congratulate you for this nice piece of software. Im so glad I kept my GameCube (not that I ever had to sell any of my Consoles), at the end I often only used it for Gameboy games anyway and that will be his only purpose be from now on.


Thank you!

@extrems
I’m just getting started with the GBI so pardon if these questions are noobish.

Are backup Roms able to be loaded from the gcloader sd card that is also running swiss(assuming it’s fat32 formatted)?

Also wondering if the write support for the GCLoader will allow GBI to write back to the gcloader as well? (Assuming the gcloader sd card is fat32 formatted).

Thanks again for such great work!

No. Only multiboot images can be loaded.

Yes. The support was implemented 2 months ago.

Thanks for the quick response!

Could I make a feature request to implement access of backup ROMs directly from the GcLoader SD card or is that pretty much impossible due to the way the gameboy player wants to read info from its own card slot? No way to fake it out I suppose.

If that were possible, it would've been done long ago.

If GBI can write to GCloader, I assume emGBA can as well, so you can backup your roms with GBI, then run them with emGBA.

You'd be just fine this way unless you want to use hardware features, such as link multiplayer gaming, or backup GB/C roms.

Ordered an everdrive for gba. But thanks I did see that about the emgba. Can the emgba be run from Swiss?

Yes, it can be run from Swiss, that's the way I (scarcely) use it.
Beware with flashcarts, I have a GBPlayer that can't run my SuperCard mini SD (the purple, while the Black and Platinum are just OK with it. Hope the ED is much more compatible.

I’ll let you know about the ed gba. (I have the ed N8 pro, the fxpak pro, the ed64x7 and have had nothing but success).

I’m using a black GC with black gbplayer with gc loader with laser bear mount with sd extension all working amazingly thanks to the great work by Extrems and emukidid and danielkraak.

emGBA hasn't been updated yet. So far, only GBI, Not64 and Swiss have support.
