Wind Waker Hack for GC

Postby FIX94 » Sat Feb 20, 2016 2:22 pm

so here I am again, after looking at Wind Waker I found a good exploit in it, it will just load a boot.dol from your memory card.

Grab yourself the current release and install it with a softmodded Wii and GCMM.
The exploit loads a boot.dol installed on your memory card converted with dol2gci (as found in Home Bros) so make sure to also install one with GCMM, it will just crash otherwise.

If you are interested in the source its included on the github page.

See it in action right here loading GBI:


NOTE:
This video shows v1.0, the current v1.1 of the exploit will trigger directly after you press start on the title screen.

Thanks, FIX94! Thanks to you now I can run homebrew on my GameCube! I've got a Wii I softmodded in 2008 and even though I can do almost anything with it (emulators, USB Loaders, Nintendont, GC and Wii backups, manage GC memory cards...) there was one thing I was willing to use: GameBoy Interface. I'm very pleased now I can use it. Thanks again.

Hi, is there a way to store multiple DOLs on the same memory card so you can use this to boot Swiss as boo.dol then use Swiss to launch something else from the memory card? Awesome stuff, thanks.

I coded a mc dol launcher, but if it is being added to swiss, it will be far better. Dol launching code is the same though.

It crashes

Postby ianasplund » Mon Jul 18, 2016 12:01 am

My copy of wind waker is shipping and I am using Nintendont on my Wii to test this with swiss. I did the conversion and everything and it still didn't work. Is this because I am on a Wii?

nintendont runs in wii mode and patches very specific things in gamecube games so they run at all so of course as soon as you try homebrew in it no patch will work anymore and it just crashes so you cant just test it like that.

The package arrived and it worked perfectly on my gamecube.

Would this work on a JP copy of Wind Waker?

Place the gzlj.gci on your memory card via GCMM or other means and it'll work just fine provided you have a boot.dol on the same memory card too.

Does anyone on this forum believe in step by step instructions?

I have a gamecube, SD card reader for gamecube, 2GB SD card, gameboy player, and have downloaded gameboy interface and swiss, and I've seached, and googled, and read, and nothing, and i mean NOTHING, gives anything resembling clear, straightforward instructions on how to use any of this.

I can't find any method of loading this thing, or no one is explaining it in any kind of understandable step by step instructions.

I understand I need to somehow use some sort of exploit, and I do have a windwaker disc, but this thread gives no explanation on how to do this.


What do I do?

Please, if you're going to put these things on the internet for others to read, make some kind of attempt to give some sort of instructions that can be used.


Thanks.

You need to use a modded Wii and gcmm to copy the right save file to your memory card, as well as gbi's boot.gci.

There's a quick step by step instruction in the Home Bros thread that's linked in the OP. The only difference is how the exploit trigger.

Neither of these replies is an answer. Every time I try to look up anything GC hack related, it assumes knowledge, links to other things, which assumes knowledge, and links to other things....

Look, I believe in doing research and reading up on things. I've tried that here. I've found it basically impossible to figure out ANYTHING gamecube hacking related due to the way the community explains everything. There's no simple start to finish guide for ANYTHING!

How is one supposed to get started, when there's no starting point. Trying to do anything with this is like peeling back layers of an onion, every step leads to another layer, and I'm getting nowhere.

This thread has literally sent me in a full circle with no answer.

I clicked on the Home Bros. link. It refers to GameCube Memory Manager. What is that? Never used that before. I click the link.

I scroll down on how to load the app. It talks about using an SD reader in slot A (something I've had NO LUCK DOING, which is why I'm doing research in trying to figure this out). There's a link for more information on the topics, I click it.

This takes me to a page about exploits that can be used, which includes a link to THIS THREAD!

FULL CIRCLE!!!


I literally see NO WAY anyone can make any sense of this. Could someone, for the love of god, put together a step by step guide beginning to end to give someone a starting point to be able to use these things? This is ridiculous....going around in circles with different links, with no explanation on how any of this works!

You use the front SD slot on a Wii.

But this is in the Gamecube section, this title of this thread says GC. This only works for Wii?

And once again, I'm asking for instructions, and receive only a one line response.

Are there any clear instructions on how to use exploits on a gamecube to boot things from an SD card?

You need a Wii to copy the files onto a memory card.

If you don't have a Wii, you'll need to look at something else than game save exploits.
