    this is amazing, it fixes the weird screen output glitch on metroid prime 3 ntsc!! before, part of the output at the top and bottom was split, with weird lines. now, it looks 100% normal.

    Just tested it (replaced the loader .dol by the gecko .dol) on a PAL Wii with Zack & Wiki PAL and it works just fine. So there's now an 100% open source version with potential updates out there. Fantastic.

    What I find strange, though... Normally, I had 20 - 60 seconds of loading in Zack & Wiki, and on my try with Gecko OS just now, it was 18 - 38 seconds... It seemed to load faster. But as far as I understand the way this is put together, this is impossible and just wishful thinking.

    Going to try other games now.

    No, no this is just wishful thinking. Definatly no improvement with de Blob or the opening of Okami.

    Its nice of that guy to drag my name around in the mud, when i'm strictly against piracy, for the only fact that he can't code. or is too lazy to make anything useful other than piracy loader

    he has even edited my original source code read me so it sounds like I wrote it, and have added warez support.

    well for sure there will be no Gecko OS releases now in any form.

    thanks wiigator. Asshole

    is that sorce code or anyother gecko OS? when people release stuff without thinking or asking the author it always messes things up, while i didnt use gecko OS because i had no imports it was a really nice app

    Actually none of what you said is right

    1. He didn't drag your name in the mud.
    2. It clearly says in the readme that Wiigator modified your software to support the new feature.
    3. From my understanding the open source agreement means that others can take your code and improve upon it assuming they credit the original author.

    Ignore that asshat, as it stat its Wiigator that added it and not you. You are innocent.
    I myself really hope you continue GeckoOs since I think its a really good app.
