    i just downloaded the latest firmware revision of swiss and used the exact compatible memory cards to get everything started. i try running games based off the game compatibility list and some worked, while others always give me this right when the game loads: "An error has occurred. Turn the Power Off and check the Nintendo GameCube Instruction Booklet for further instructions fix".

    here is a small list of games i tested:

    wario world - works perfectly
    mario kart double dash - works

    rampage - crashes on first fmv

    metroid prime - works great but i get the error when i quit the game thru menu

    simpsons hit n run - error message immediately after trying to load

    crazy taxi - crashes on sega logo

    capcom vs snk - works great

    they are all USA format. the game compatibility list says all these work fine. does going to an older version of swiss help? it’s strange.

    Simply put, not all games are compatible with the (significantly higher performance) "alternate read patches" - they are now a per-game option and enabled by default to encourage its testing, so just turn it off on the problematic ones and see if they improve :)

    (and if they do and you have a github account, maybe post a polite bug report about it!)

    You first select the game to get the black popup with the enlarged icon, then press X as it says at the bottom :)
