    It depends. If the .iso file is in /games you can just set the title id (at 0x80000000) and it will be found automatically, otherwise you have to pass the starting cluster (and device id) using the config options.

    Modify the source code for the sample loader.

    thanks for testing,

    I'll look into the Devo source and figure out how to make autoboot channels apploaders
    :)

    Edit: I found this section in Devo source main.c
    Code:
    
    // find an .ISO file in /games/ to run
    // this directory can be changed, but /games/ is the default if Devolution needs to search for a disc
    select_game("/games", real_memcard);
    
    // unmount disk to be sure any changes are flushed
    fatUnmount("disk:");
    
    printf("Disc ID: %08X\n", read32(0));
    @tueidj said before:
    If the .iso file is in /games you can just set the title id (at 0x80000000)

    I'm not sure if this will work but maybe replacing "%08X\n" or just "%08X" by ID6 will do the trick
    If anyone is willing to test I'll make a Mario Sunsine or Animal crossing channel Devo apploader
    Let me know :)

    Unfortunately I can't test devo since I have no original discs and I use compressed iso to save disk space

    Maybe you can make an autoboot channel that boots the games without the original disc. :ninja:

    Quick question, in reference to the quadforce tutorial on a neek2o+Di usb setup. can i use the latest neek2o v92beta or does it have to be v88? I think I'm going to make two nands - one regular and one with quadforce and just switch nands when i want to play gp1 and gp2.

    I believe all that line does is just print to screen disc ID: followed by the ID
    read32(0) is a call to a function that gets the ID and returns it to be used in the printf statement.

    just thougt i'd help

    launching with di menu should work with neek2o 92b9 too, GP games should be in "SD:\games\" folder

    in the DM-Booter source edit defines.h file
    you need to uncomment the autoboot line and type the ID6 of the game

    Check the second tutorial on first page it has all the details for ya :)

    I'll admit some of these are awesome but I'd be lying if I didn't say I would adore animated ones

    But i'm noticing some aren't really designed for widescreen

    If it isn't too much trouble, could someone upload the Zelda Twilight Princess and Fire Emblem Path of Radiance with custom sounds that would work with dios mios? I looked at the tutorial and it looks way beyond me.
