    Mentioned in the shoutbox the other day I found someone will to trade me a gamecube setup for New Super Mario Bros U. Glad to say it went through, and I came out with..

    Purple Gamecube
    SD Media Launcher w/ Disc
    Wavebird controller w/ Receiver
    Super Mario Sunshine
    Wario World
    True Crime New York City
    Luigi's Mansion
    Super Smash Bros Melee

    These are of course burned games. I have a 32GB SD card I'm currently using for SD loading games. (Also found out in Swiss you can also use the SD Media Launcher as a memory card.) The only issue I have is that the left analog stick nub is a bit chewed on the Wavebird. I'm assuming I can get a replacement nub/stick when the time comes?

    I'm off! Legend of Zelda: Wind Waker needs me. Wonder if this is any good in Widescreen mode.

    Probably sleeping under a rock?

    Ever since the release of Swiss, GC SD loading on a GC has been made super easy.

    Is the compatibility for running Gamecube ISOs via SD card good?

    Man, your lucky! On eBay, a wavebird controller itself, is the price of NSMBU.

    Im assuming its not just as easy as having a memory card with an SD slot filled with ISOs? Is it?

    It is. The only thing you're missing is an Action Replay, or a SD Media Launcher Disc. I had a AR that I was going to use, but turns out I didn't need it if you were interested in buying one.

    Yep, and you're all set. The Action Replay autoboots into a SD Media Launcher mode once it detects there's a SD Gecko in one of the memory card slots.

    Oh bleh, you need a non SDHC memory card. The SD Media Launcher software only works with a 2GB SD card or lower. Once you boot up Swiss you can swap the 2GB one out for a large sized one.

    Ok, it was a little more than you paid... You did good.

    Incidentally, I do own a Gamecube and Windwaker so I'm not some kind of emulation-only heathen. :P
