I was just thinking about something like this. Awesome! This will be great for testing new features or potentially finding stuff that may have "broke" from build to build quickly. Thanks to everyone involved!

Thanks for these builds! I can confirm that the rev221 is now working perfectly.

BTW, is there a chance to fix Ikaruga? ;)

Sure, sorry for lack of details.

With the 219 and 220 revs I had the same issue which julius had: Swiss doesn't show the contents of the SD Card and then just freezes. I've just tested the 217 and 218 revs and they does work without problems.

My setup:

GameCube DOL-001, IPL NTSC rev 1.1
Qoob Pro 1.3c
SD Gecko on slot B
Boot method: Qoob with Swiss 0.3 build 174

Hi, I can't get metroid prime running on my swiss. I'm using swiss r221 with the 1.0 wiikey fusion firmware. Autoboot works, most games run, but metroid prime doesn't. Yes, I do own an actual metroid prime disk so hopefully this isn't frowned upon. I'm sure the .iso I'm using is good I used it before I installed autoboot and I remember it working. In the swiss menu I select the iso, hit "a" and it freezes at "reading...". It even does this if the metroid prime iso is the only file on the sd card. I've noticed when swiss scans an iso it brings up data and even a picture of the game, perhaps this iso is missing that data?

*edit*

I just somehow managed to get metroid prime past the "reading..." spot, now it's frozen on "reset base offset .."

By cycling through games, hitting "a" to load the picture then "b" to go back I managed to get f-zero to also freeze at "reset base offset ..". If I fire the system up and go straight into f-zero it works fine.

By the way I flashed the ntsc swiss file, the pal file tries to update the firmware even if there's no firmware file and kills autoboot.

I don't really recommend anything beyond r221 except for testing purposes.
