    Hi

    I know DIOS MIOS doesn't support 2 disc games but if a GC games saves before swapping discs, can it be possible to
    1 rename the folder with disc 1 data into XXXXX (eg GCDP08 to XXXXXX)
    2 give the 2nd disc in the game folder the right name (eg GCDP08_2 to GCDP08)
    3 start the game again?

    If so: is there a list of 2 disc games which do save before swapping discs? and can this logic be build in into some USB loader like CFG-loader?

    if not: then not :-)

    have fun
    Lafleche

    what you described is of course working.
    It's like having only one ISO (the current disc you want to play).

    I thought some loaders already had support for multi disc games (wiiflow or DM Booter?)
    I'm currently adding it to USBloaderGX.
    Duplicated disc detection is starting to work, but I still need to work on all menus related to game management (dump/delete/etc.)


    here is a list of multi Disc games:

    I know that Metal Gear Solid (both) and Tales of Symphonia doesn't save before swap.
