Patch MIOS to access more RAM?

Post by pstrick » Sat Apr 27, 2019 9:37 pm

I'm trying to patch the MIOS on my Wii to access all of the MEM2 ram. (64MB)

Does anybody even know if this is possible?

I swear I saw an article by bushing where he said he did this, but now I can't find it.

I'm trying to get that Metroid prime demo emu_kidid found on an npdp cart to run on an rvt h.

That demo needs 128MB Main RAM, you'd be better off patching in code to utilise virtual memory (would result in some bad slowdown potentially), or to reduce the amount it tries to look for.

RVT-H units actually have 128MB of RAM.
I was hoping there was a simple way to allow the Wii to 'see' all the RAM when in GC mode.
