    I agree with most of what is here but I have to say I was very amazed @ the quality and compatibility of Devo when it first came out. I used my old wii to rip my library of 25 or so GC games, did the silly WiiMote thing but then loved it that I could play all games from one SD card and use the WiiU pro controller. I am a little surprised that his code was never hacked as I always figured someone would figure out how to strip his DRM shit and open it up.

    My only wish is he would do one more update supporting the GC USB adapter so that devo could be used with real GC controllers but alas that will never happen and we do have the more than awesome Nintedont now so I guess the point is moot..........still Devo was a great solution in its time.

    All that work , just to be left abandoned. He did do a hell of good job from what I'm told. It's shame it's just going to waste.

    He did a good job and he is a very good developer. However, he is one of the selfish types of programmers and their work most of the times stays abandoned and at times even incomplete...

    Devolution added support for the GC USB adapter 2 years ago...

    I thought he hated the GC controller and never supported it. I will have to find the latest build and try it but that would be nice if it works.

    I see you are right in that there is a build from 2015 r266 that adds GC USB support and also X360 support. Nice, thanks bro....ask and you shall receive.

    Hi, I've been having trouble with Devolution and was hoping that someone had this issue as well.

    - I ran cleanrip on my disc of PSO Episode I&II with no issues, then put it in the /games/ folder, checksum seemed to be ok too.
    - Started up Devolution, inserted the disc when it blinked twice, then blinked 5 times in return, but then the screen was just black.
    - Even 10 minutes later it was still black.

    What I've tried:
    - Different USB drives with the recommended FAT32 partitioning
    - Multiple rips of the disc
    - The .iso works in another iso loader just fine
    - However when trying another loader to "install" the disc it freezes at 2%

    My Wii is hard-modded with an older disc drive, but the game runs if I normally play it, I have a suspicion this is the culprit, but unsure.

    if you moded your disc drive devolution anti piracy check will fail and you wont be able to use devolution at all due to the anti pyracy measures.

    So your only hope is nintendont.

    I don't think it's completely abandoned since his last post on Devolution is actually "just" a bit over a year ago:
    http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/search.php?author_id=1395&sr=posts

    I wouldn't be surprised if he simply just feels that Devolution is "complete".


    And he still regularly posts on GC-Forever:
    http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d&sr=posts&author_id=1395

    It's more likely that his lack of activity on GBAtemp is simply due to finding a community (GC-Forever) that more aligns with his anti-piracy views.

    Pretty sure you meant to put that in Nintendont's not Devolutions ;)
