It's strange but my 16gb class 4 sandisk card didn't work but a lower capacity card did work.
EDIT: nvm, solved it.
I tried using the GameCube ISO compress utility to make Animal Crossing smaller it's actual size (17MB opposed to 1.4GB), but after running it, it says it was a success, but there is no resulting compressed ISO file, and the ISO I put in is the same size.
Is there a utility to actually shrink it in terms of file size on the SD card?
It never overwrites the existing iso file, it will always create a new folder which contains the compressed game.
Seems I figured it out, it's a bit convoluted, this process you have to use GCReEx to extract, then re-pack the game ISO, but it works.
Actually, if the backup loader you're using supports it you should be able to just leave it un-packed (just a bunch of files in a folder) and it will actually run it faster that way.
I'm actually curious about the answer to the quoted question (the reply tells us the answer to "where is BC?" instead of "what is BC?")
I can't get DML to work, using the most up-to-date setup from ModMii. I can see my GC game (Zelda: Four Swords) in cfg usb loader and DML loader, but the system just resets to the main Wii menu instead of loading the game. I also used ModMii to update every system file, hoping the problem was caused by an outdated file, but no luck - still just rebooting the system. This is the only result I have received, whether trying to load with a disc or without, from real nand or a sneek environment.
Does anyone have any tips or suggestions about what I must have overlooked?
The BC is needed to boot the MIOS (DML) properly, without BC it doesnt work and most likely just returns to system menu because of a unknown channel title then.
to build upon Fix's answer for you're curiosity's sake, BC means something like Backwards Compatibility. It's what tells the processor and GPU to slow down and changes a couple memory addresses so that the Wii basically BECOMES a GameCube. It's what actually loads the MIOS and when something wants to load something in GameCube mode it actually calls BC and not the MIOS directly.
As far as your problems, just in case you actually updated EVERY system file with ModMii, you may have installed a clean MIOS by mistake which would overwrite DML so maybe you should install DML again. Also, depending on how you did it, last I checked, ModMii didn't actually include the BC as part of the the "all active IOS" option so you still may not have it. Just in case, when you install the WAD for DML, try installing the WAD for BC at the same time. There's no harm in being sure.
I figured I'd ask here.
I have no problems at all running DML using Configurable USB Loader. But I was wondering: Is the blue disc tray light filckering randomly (usually at times to match audio) normal while playing a GCN game? And if so, is there a way to stop it? It kinda bothers me, lol.
Otherwise everything else is great and so is this tut.
Thats just the activity light, if it annoys you then change it in cfg-loader source and recompile I added it long time ago because I like to know when something is working or not
Whenever I start either A. a DML booter through homebrew or B. a DML booter channel from my wii menu, all it does is display a black screen with a little white text on it and then restart and go back to A. homebrew or B. the wii menu.
As far as I know i have installed everything, I have also tried installing RVL-BC-v6.wad and trying again, however nothing seems to work. I have an original GC game in my wii as well.
Anyone know how to fix this?
Okay, then where in the source is it, and how would I go about doing that?
I updated to DIOS MIOS Lite v1.4b. I did this by downloading the WAD and installing it. I didn't bother with RVL-mios-v10.wad since I assume it's no longer needed. (The wad isn't being created anymore).
I can't get any games to load anymore. I tried USB Loader GX, Configurable USB Loader, and I just tried DML Loader, which only saw Luigi's Mansion.
Most games get stuck in the loading screen. A few can start, but fail to load saying there was a disc error and to consult the manual.
I tried installing RVL-mios-v10.wad and then installing diosmioslitesv1.4b.wad. It didn't make a difference.
EDIT: Just to clarify, it's getting stuck on "Loading main.dol"
EDIT #2: I reverted to rev 58 and CFG Loader 70r27 and it's working again. Any ideas why the newest ones won't work?
The newer ones dont have the same sd card compatility, sounds like your sd card is not working properly with the new dml then.
Thank you. That makes sense. Will you be adding a list of best (benchmarked) SDHC cards to the first post?
I'm testing Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes With DML 14b.
I have a 2GB Kingston SD card.
The sound in cutscenes comes faster than the video.
Is it DML or maybe Card's class problem ? ( I don't know what class is it but it must be a low one)
Also In compatibility I saw someone has posted that MGS Twin Snakes works and he swaped to disk 2.
Does anyone know how did he manage to do that ? ("Swaps disc with r52 perfectly")i
with dml booter i get "fatal error apploader size is zero!" when i try paper mario and luigis mansion....and neogamma doesnt even list any games, just says "no games found"
Can anybody tell me if this is a better method to play GameCube backups than using Swiss to play through Wiikey SD (SD Gecko)?
There are some games that don't work on Swiss, others that have some annoying bugs (like the map bug on Zelda: Wind Waker) then I was hoping this DML method could be a better option, with more functional games and less bugs.
I'm asking because I'm kind of a newbie when it comes to Wii hacking and it'll be difficult to me to go back to Swiss if I have to reinstall everything again after I try DML.
I think DML actually has better compatibility now. At least the the Wind Waker bug got fixed. The only thing that comes to mind that Swiss goes better is being able to switch disks on multi-disk games while playing. (Not that I have a whole LOT of experience with Swiss or anything but DML seems to work quite well.)
There's a compatibility Wiki here http://code.google.com/p/diosmioslite/wiki/GameIssues but it looks like there's only two games that simply don't work at all on the list. There's also a number that have minor audio issues due to audio streaming stuff but I think that's the same case with Swiss.
