    I know that WiiGators GCN loader isn't out yet, but i wanna have a test disc ready for when it is. What programs do i need to make a multigame disc and how do i go about shrinking the individual ISOs? I'd also like to know whether there are any potential downsides to shrinking the images. Thanks in advance.

    I'm almost 100% positive that multiple games on one disc doesn't work.

    1. It doesn't support multis yet.

    2. You don't shrink them. They're a bit less than 1.4 GB.

    I don't know about downsides to shrinking the ISO's. Use GCMUtility 0.5 Here to shrink, then use GCOS Multigame Creator V4F to make the iso Here

    Also, didn't ppc_gba mod the loader code to support Multigame discs (GCOS Multigame disc?)

    No I think he managed to get multiple disc games working with the help of Waninkoko (Like MGS)

    What? You mean not using an ISO but just putting the files on the disc?

    So you mean, burning it as a Data DVD?

    So like for the MPlayer? A Data-Disc with .iso's on it? Good luck on that [​IMG]! But I hope that someone will be able to combine this two loading methods in one Loader..
    (So one loader which can read Data-Discs and normal Burned Discs...)

    Yes! You can burn your backup's games on Verbatim+R's. Just make sure you book type them DVD-Rom.

    That would be great to burn a dvd full of GC isos to play from.
    However i'm just waiting for the 1st version to pop out this weekend.

    Even that isn't set in stone, it seems to differ from Wii to Wii. I only have DVD+Rs and I can't change the booktype on my DVD drive. Yet all my Wii backups work perfectly.
