    Hi there,

    Im just looking for what is the best optimal setup (while keeping the wii able to do usb wii wbfs backups/triforce)

    My system is 3.3 , works wonderfully, and i have no problems with it. Although I got right into the gamecube backups and I find that getting up and down all the time using Neogamma 44beta, is somewhat annoyaning, it can take up to 30 minutes or never to get a game to run.

    Reason being (getting Neogamma on the right settings to launch a game)

    Some games require it in PAL or some dont, some require video patching, and some dont. Since theres no way to save individual configurations, this can be a pain in the ass. Also because in Neogamma, you cannot reset the system without getting up and holding the button for 5 seconds.

    So obviously, someone out there is doing this a bit better than I am.

    While burning Multigame iso's (is there a universal setting -- since the multi boot gives you options of which menu of display modes)
    Neogamma allows you to set disc mode, force, auto patching etc.
    Then the disc asks you

    so obviously Neogamma has to be somewhat neutral ?

    Im also up for a good lecture on how this stuff works, whatever you can tell me ill understand it and put it into practice.

    I have games like Arcadia working, Capcom vs SNk2, viewitical joe (two of those games use different settings via neogamma and are not Multiboot game iso's)

    I have a multiboot game iso with Rogue Squad2, Burnout, Viiewitcal joe three, playing with settings i only got Burnout to load

    Thanks again

    Im in NTSC (canada)

    Please explain that.

    And about the video modes, well if you use video mode disc, all games that can work on your wii, should work. If you get color issues, it's your tv's fault, and/or your fault for getting games from the wrong region.

    PAL is for european games, NTSC is for North American and Japanese games. Not hard to understand that.

    Neogamma has the options to set modes because real games aren't on multiboot discs [​IMG] Neogamma sets the initial settings so that the multiboot menu can be displayed. If you so chose, you could then change the settings again via the multiboot disc... Neogamma isn't "neutral" (odd choice of words by the way) it just sets the initial settings.



    Most modern HD TVs in some way support both PAL and NTSC... My HDTV for example will display PAL signals, but cuts off the bottom 1/6th of the screen. Older TVs in NA will only support NTSC games, otherwise they'll just completely distort (at best) or just out and out crash (as you've noted)

    What are you talking about?

    1. Boot NeoGamma
    2. Optional: Go to settings and change them
    3. Select launch DVD
    4. Select which game to boot from the multi game disc
    5. NeoGamma's internal loader shows up, but there's nothing you can input, it doesn't contain any code to handle controllers

    Whoa,

    Ok WiiPower heres the man himself,

    Let me explain this quicker again,

    Mario Superstar Baseball GC, locks up after you start the game
    Guantlet locks up during opening title

    more recently

    Top Gun locks up after it plays a video (the codec / Gc using an intro avi some sort of media file) locks cant get in the game

    So what I mean to ask is, maybe its just bad luck and the first 8 to 10 games Ive tried, get errors like this that at times just isn't worth bothering with.

    Ive scanned known issues for games and I havent seen the same area of example superstar baseball that locks up where I am. Discs are good slow burns on vetabrat

    So all Neogamma settings are default again but same issues for the three. All games I have are pal backups, Ive also double checked that maybe I had a bad "backup" so got a different image.


    And

    Is it probably better not to use Neogamma, as IM getting GC backup x1 and 0.2 again now. Hope that fixs the issues.

    I want Wiipowers autograph. By the way, Wiipower, you quoted another guy in your last message, not me.

    Tell me your systems setup

    IOS36 , MIOS patch, etc, so I can confirm my settings.

    Take care

    Please look at the official compatiblity list:
    http://wiki.gbatemp.net/wiki/Gamecube_Back...patibility_List

    As you can see for Mario Superstar Baseball, it is mentioned that the BGM is missing. This indicates that the game uses audio streams and must not be shrunken. I guess you did shrink all your games? That's a problem for those (few) games that use audio streams. The latest NeoGamma should warn you about that, and with the 32K audio fix the games might be playable, but i won't guarantee it. (If NeoGamma doesn't warn you for this game, it's not the latest version, you have the wrong cMIOS or the wrong settings)

    My setup is:
    cIOS56rev20
    homebrew + DVD-R patched MIOSv10 (recommend cMIOS from: http://gbatemp.net/t219243-neogamma-r9-beta-test)
    Latest NeoGamma, default settings(video mode disc + GC mode internal!)
    Verbatim DVD-Rs, burned at 4x-8x

    Oh and you should burn at least 4x nowadays, it gets better results than burning slow now.

    THanks for the Information IM going to change all the settings to what yours is at.

    I did read the compitable list, and saw about the BGM, i was aware of that, it was just freezing when entering the baseball game. It seems to be working fine again.

    My other problems are to do with Blank screens and music playing while trying all the Video options off a multi-boot , no good. Neogamma is R9, 45 i think

    THanks for replying

    And I realize you are not technical support, and that youve contributed huge to this project. I get better at this by asking questions, so I appericate it. I apply all learned to other stuff, and then im able to help others.

    Thanks
