    Hi Guys,

    I need to clear some space and I want to know if there is a list anywhere of all the Wii games that need an alt-dol pulled out of the iso. Or maybe we can make one here.

    Thanks,

    HS

    Some of the other multi .dol games:

    Mortal Kombat Armageddon
    SSX Blur


    Oh, and I might like to add that NONE of the games listed by me and WiiPower require an alternative .dol to be "pulled out of the iso". Most modern USB Loaders can detect the .dols on the image itself without extraction and have been able to do so for months. Thank you so much for giving us that functionality, WiiPower. It's a pity the "disc" naming issue meant so many people misunderstood your superb feature.

    There's no difference for loaders and games if the data is technically on disc or usb.(that's why usb loading works as good as it does) An usb loader is the SAME as a disc loader, it just has very little extra code to tell the cIOS to mount a disc from usb. There are no special commands to access files from usb or such.

    About the .dols: If a loader has the alternative .dol loading feature from disc, but does not show any for a game, the game does not have any. Theoretically there could be a renamed .dol, but this haven't been reported yet.

    Don't know if you'd want to included "Rampage: Total Destruction", as the main game doesn't require it, but alt.dol is required to play the 2 bonus emulated games M1.dol=Rampage and jarvos.dol=Rampage World Tour.

    So you're saying that the need to pull the .dol out of the iso is no longer needed for a few of the usb loaders? What one's have this ability? Wiiflow? GX?

    Thanks

    Pretty much all the USB loaders that are still being worked on, have the alt .dol from disc option in the settings. So WiiFlow, GX, Configurable, NeoGamma, etc. Just select the .dol from disc in the options, and you can browse through the available .dols for each game.
