    1. No one knows what is new yet/
    2. It says what MIOS to use in the readme
    3. Here's what you should know before messing with MIOS: How to read readme's

    Wonder if multidisc games work in 0.2 now, I'll try out PSO Episode 1&2 also to see if that works.

    No one knows what the new functions are. There is a quote from Wanin's twitter in the other MIOS thread. I posted it below (emphasis by me):

    Even he doesn't even know...

    I´m searching for the right .wad file but I can´t find it.
    For cMIOS rev3 you use RVL-mios-v8.
    But what does MIOS original WAD file means(or can I use RVL-mios-v8 from Rev.3 for Rev.5 too)?
    I can´t find the real .wad data. Please help.

    the solution would just be to list the changes since Rev 4

    so the change log would have both Rev 4 and Rev 5 changes listed in the Rev5 section log

    Multigame discs have always worked in 0.2. Or at least they have for me, anyway.

    Multi-Discs do work wonders but some games on separate discs don't work Like Japanese Zelda Wind Waker & Japanese Zelda Collection (Collector's Edition) I'm fine with this cMIOS I haven't tried 2 Disc Games like Tales of Symphonia & Resident Evil/Biohazard Games I'm sure they work wonders.

    Makes me wonder if WiiGator will make his cMIOS since this is out and update Gamecube Backup Launcher?

    Use NUSD and get the latest mios file from it and pack it as a wad and use it.

    Or just do network install and not worry about the wad.

    OKI, I've just installed this and I'm running a few comatibility tests.

    I have PAL console with 4.2E, with cIOSCORP...v3.7 installed, and waninkoko's cMIOS rev5 installed (used MIOS v4 as a base when installing).

    Tested The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker PAL:
    Got blackscreen.
    Had to hold down GC B button to access menu, then press A button to load it.
    Wii's date isn't read by MIOS either. I started new game, then saved, and the date on my save was 01/01/2000.
    Didn't play long enough to test the dungeon map functionality.

    Going to test Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness PAL and Mario Kart Double Dash!! PAL next.

    EDIT:
    Tested Pokemon XD: Gale of Darkness PAL:
    Works fine!

    2 Q's, just wanted to confirm, cioscorp 3.7 hasn't been officially released yet right?

    and why did u use MIOS v4 as a base, is that better than using v10 or even v8?
