    Hi, guys, I've been searching everywhere for days with no luck. I'm trying to play Gamecube games through ubsloadergx and all the tutorials online say I need to tell usbloadergx where nintendont is installed. They say go to loader options but there's nothing there that I can change to see nintendont, I've tried to change all the options. I don't have nintendont installed as a channel, I didn't even go through any sort of install process I just copied it onto the apps folder and run it through homebrew. That works just fine, but i want to use ubsloadergx.
    Previously, I was able to run Gamecube games through usbloadergx but as soon as I clicked "DML NMM" I always get a popup that says "This game is on USB, do you want to copy it to SD or uninstall and SD game?" Even when I turn no more memory cards off, it still does this popup, and since I don't want to copy to the sd card, I can't play the games. nintendont still works fine. I even reset usbloader to default settings and I still get the popup after only telling usbloader to see GC games and change the main GC path, no other options. It may be worth mentioning that I only have nitendont installed, nothu=ing else like it, no dos mios lite which is what I assume DML stands for.
    The image attached is from youtube tutorial in a different language that seems to do exactly what I do, but they have a "--=Nintendont=--" header with sub options that I don't have. Does that mean it doesn't see nintendont? if sho how was a previously able to play games through usbloader? Any help is appreciated. I cant find any tutorials that show how to change the loader to nintendont and I feel like a total idiot. I have no idea what im doing wrong, everyone else seems to be bale to play from usb with almost no setup at all.

    Im using the latest version of usbloadergx. From this forum, it tells me to change the "Gamecube mode" under loader settings, and option i dont have.

    Try to change gc settings in loader settings in usbloader gx, from dios to nintendont.
    And make sure you change "main gc path" to usb 0 or 1 :)
    Hope that helps

    i dont have any options like that. in loader settings i only have:
    Video mode
    vidtv patch
    sneek video patch
    aspect ratio
    game language
    patch country strings
    ocariana
    boot/standard
    quick boot
    error 002 fix
    block ios reload
    return to
    nand saves emulation
    nand chan. emulation
    hooktype
    wiird debugger
    debugger paused start
    channel launcher
    gc force interlace
    dml nmm mode
    dml led activity
    del pad hook
    dml no disc dml debug

    I have tried changing all of these options and none of them refer to mios or nintendont at all. i am so confused because everyone keeps saying to do that but i dont have any options like that.

    My main path is set to the usb, i can view the games just fine, download covers for them, change their settings, i just cant play them. I dont know where the stupid "This game is on usb" pop came from or why its there but i cant get past it. and theres no nintedntont settings which worries me, but somehow i was able to play previously? Color me 1000% confused. Im a work in IT, im a very tech savvy guy, why it this so hard???

    I think your usbloader is outdated, i installed all yesterday, and all a had to change is the loader settings from dios to nintendont.... USB shoud be fat 32 and 32 kb clutcher, and games go : usb1/games/zelda/game.iso

    v3.0 rev 65535. if i go to update in the settings, it says no update available.

    Soemthing else worth mentioning, i tried to install super monkey ball on the sd to see if that would let me play, after all thats what usbloader is telling me to do. so i copied it over through usbloader one the popup that says "this game is on usb" and im sure it said it copied super moneky ball. when i clicked on supermonkey ball it started running need for speed, which is currently in my disc drive. I removed teh NFS disc and clicked on super monkey ball again, it spun the disc drive, and kicked me back out to the wii menu. things are just getting more and more confusing.

    additionally, why do i have to wait 300s to post another response?

    The corner in that dark alley.
    I'm not so sure about that to be quite honest; might be useful to get @Cyan in here? Or post in the USBLGX thread here: http://gbatemp.net/threads/usb-loader-gx.149922/

    Additionally, it might be worth to try a fresh install; the latest version is v3.0 r1260. The built-in updater doesn't work properly, you'll need to do the update manually:

    Hmm go to https://sourceforge.net/projects/usbloadergx/ and download it again.
    Download the loader.dol from fix94 github, rename it to boot.dol put this file in the sd/apps/nintendont/

    The second thing is probly becouse the gc path is still set to usb1/

    The 300s count i dont nothing about :)

    This version does NOT exist.

    there is a revision 3.0 r1280 (the old first release of "3.0")
    there is a revision 3.0c (the old, full channel, not maintained anymore), if you have this, you can replace it by following this guide.

    You need revision 3.0 r1262.
    if you try downloading an update from the loader's menu from an old version of the loader, it will not work because google has shutdown the website where new version were stored.
    you need to install the latest version manually. you can find a link in my signature.
    Updating from the loader now work fine again (but there will not be a lot of new updates)


    You don't need to "tell USBLoaderGX where is located nintendont".
    by default, it will look in "SD:/apps/nintendont/boot.dol"
    if you place the nintendont's boot.dol in another folder (USB:/apps/ for example) then you can change the path here:
    Settings > User path > Nintendont loader
