Thanks to Fix94 for he softmod and to Extrems for the step by step details.

Just got a Panasonic Q, I was going to install a mod chip on it but this is fantastic, working right away booting backups on swiss via SD card in slot B

Thanks Guys, this is awesome!

Game freezes

Post by MagicalRuin » Tue Oct 22, 2019 5:52 pm

It recognizes the save data, but it just freezes when loaded
You said you should also drop gcmm on the memorycard, but where should i put it? i to put the to gci format converted gcmm.dol there, but it just freezes.
And is there a way to play Game Backups without sd media launcher on ...lets say a memory card sd adapter?

The GameSave Hack just tries to launch an executable off the slot A Memcard named Boot.GCI, this can be a dolauncher (that will launch autoexec.dol from the SD card in SlotB), a launcher menu, that can let you choose from different executables on the Memcard (.GCI converted), or a homebrew converted to GCI, SWISS, GBI, or anything you want.
Without this, the gamesave just freezes the console.
So for the WW hack to work, you should have at least the WW hacked save, and a file named Boot.GCI on the Memcard.
The most versatile, as soon as you don't want to use exFat filesystem and SD2SP2 is the Dolauncher that launches autoexec.dol from the root of the SD (SWISS renamed is preferred), and autoexec?.dol off a specific folder on the press of a gamepad's button which letter replaces the ? in the name.

Have a look there to learn about dolaunchers.

Works for all versions. Just need to use the right region version.

I mention it because the disc code is DL-DOL-GZLP-EUR-01 instead of DL-DOL-GZLP-EUR.
I know I have to put PAL but they look like different versions.
Will save be compatible?
Thanks.

That’s the code on the front of the disc. The code that reflects software version is found on the shiny side of the disc. It should be DOL-GZLP-0-00

Thank you very much. Indeed, the code is as you say and therefore compatible.

I had a Zelda WW collector GC edition with games previously, and have a Player's Choice copy of WW now, unless the disc painting may be different, the version is the same and the Exploit just works on both.

From my understanding, and testing; unless you have another GC Memory Card without the exploited GCI file, it is not possible to play an actual Wind Waker save game? As even when booting a ISO of Wind Waker the exploit occurs.

Appreciate it! Great exploit, only got 5 games and this was one of them. Saved me a bunch because of purchased an Action Replay but for some reason it only works on my Wii and not my DOL-001 version GameCube.. very odd.

Thanks nonetheless!

You can run the US version ISO if you booted with the PAL disc, or vice versa, the saves will be different thus can be on the same card.

Thanks for this great hack! And thanks for all the added information, now I can play all my games from SD2SP2 SD card until the ODE finally comes in. I really respect the wait due to the Corona virus, but really had the itch to play the games on my GC with a Carby. That worked because of this great community!

Does this work with the Special Edition PAL of Zelda Wind Waker? (gold)

I don't see why it won't, just look in the previous posts in this page.
