    Does anyone know what the Dios Mios screenshots actually are? Ycbycr2bmp isn't working for screenshots that aren't 608x440 or 640x480 (for example, Paper Mario:TTYD with the widescren hack seems to be 608x456), and I can't get imagemagick to work with either yuv or ycbcr color space. I get the image, but the colors are wrong.

    Questions like that can be answered easily with a Google Search. To answer your question, though, it's similar to the Wii's built in MIOS, except it allows you to run your NGC backups from USB storage (DIOS MIOS) or a SD/SDHC card (Lite). It also allows for some hacks and mods.

    Questions like that can also be answered if people read the 1st page of a thread and the pages it has a link to, but it seems to be not done anymore...

    PS: this is not directed to anyone specific, just general frustration... :lol:

    MIOS is the Nintendo's system file responsible to play Gamecube game discs.

    DIOS MIOS is a custom version of the system file installed in the console's system and replacing the official MIOS system file to play gamecube game backup ISO from USB.
    DIOS MIOS Lite is the same, but redirects to SD Card instead of USB.
    You can only have one MIOS at a time, so it's either Retail, USB or SD. You have to re-install the system file you want every time you want to change what you want to play.

    In addition to redirecting file access from Disc to External devices, it has few features like cheat code, video patching or redirecting Memory card access to external device too.


    DM and DML are old now and new method to play Gamecube games from external devices can be used : Devolution or Nintendont.
    Both projects don't require any system file replacement or installation, and are working with both SD and USB without the need of different versions.

    I wish crediar would release DM with the audio streaming. A while back he said he got it working. :(

    Why still people use this instead of "Nintendont" which has almost 100% compatibility? Does it have any advantage compered to it?
    I came in Wii hacking section in order to find a full topic of Nintendont because Dios Mios was only hassle for me...

    DM is better for cheats because its in GC mode. Also, loading speed is much faster in DM. And for some reason nd loads slower now.

    Because having a choice is always good.
    Why user use devolution instead of nintendont?
    why not ;)

    But the other reason is often because users LOOOOVE following outdated and wrong youtube tutorial about old homebrew instead of checking what's new. But then they make sure to come here to get help that their wrong tutorial couldn't provide.


    If someone wants to use a specific or old homebrew by choice, we should help him the best we can for his choice instead of telling him to use something else.
    If it's not a choice but just ignorance that there's another possibility, then suggesting the other one is a good idea.

    Do you want the translation of dios mios? it means: "my God" (it's spannish, he used it since everyone claimed it would be impossible to make). they say nintendont should work better but my tries i cant get it running at al (it hangs at kernal something...)
    dios mios is very limited in what devices work (fat32, primary, 512 bits or something, active partition only) nintendont should work on about all drives and works without using mios (don't know options).

    I still use this for the few games that use the GBA Link cable. Specifically, Wind Waker and Pac-Man Vs.

    Edit: Immediately after posting this, I decided to google around. Despite what the google code page says, GBA-Link does in fact work on Nintendon't on a Wii?

    Yep, though you have to turn Native Controls on.

    Nintendo has officially reached 100% compatibility and is far more stable than Dios Mios.
