Hi everyone,

I am attempting to install a game onto my SD card via an SD card reader - this is my first time doing this and so I need help! I attempted to install the game on the SD path (not sure if correct) but it wouldn't install and I got the following notification: "Error: could not get free device space for game." This can't be right as the SD card is 99% empty. It appears that I can install the game via the main path but I am not sure if that is the proper way to do so?

Just a few more questions:

What's the main difference between each path?
Is it ok to use either path?
Is there anything I can do to free up space via the SD path? --> again the card is 99% empty

Hello.:)

To get your Ganmecube ISO please use the Tool CLEANRIP:
https://github.com/emukidid/cleanrip/releases

Your ripped Gamecube ISO (located in the ROOT of your SD Card) has then to be named "game.iso" if it is a ONE DISC Game.If it is a TWO DISC Game the SECOND disc is named "disc2.iso"

On your SD Card please make a Folder "games".In this Folder comes now the Gamecube Games as ISO.
Now the Game has to be in a Folder with following name: Game [GAME ID] for example

Resident Evil 0 the NTSC-U Version is "Resident Evil 0 [GBZE08]"

The Game ID can you find for example on
https://www.gametdb.com/

Thank you.:)

you're not actually installing the game just coping the iso on to it and having it in a folder

you can have it on sd or usb/fat32 hdd

    That must be rough. Productive I'm sure but hard to balance with daily life

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Indeed. I've been working on getting this Infecutus chip to work on my PS2. But after soldering, I realised that a plastic piece was missing from the power ribbon cable to the power and eject buttons.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Now I could go with soldering the contacts from the cable to the connector on the mobo, but doesn't sound like a good permanent solution.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Man, that's beyond my brain :rofl: I'm no good with hardware for now. I'd like to get into hardmods in future though
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Maybe start practice soldering. Get a cheap-ass soldering iron and follow some good YouTube tutorials.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Least my experience has gotten better than over a decade ago. My iron would constantly bump into components and break them.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    Sounds good. I actually did soldering but like 16 years ago for school so uuuuh probably rusty haha
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    @Maximumbeans, Same here. I did soldering at school from a teacher who I honestly liked since he had plenty of good electronics experience.

    @Maximumbeans, I had a friend who had a glass chess set for their birthday.
  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    It was like all clear and fancy. Tbf I'm not too experienced with chess, but would like to learn someday.
  • Maximumbeans @ Maximumbeans:
    That sounds really cool

    I know the basics but no strategy at all :rofl:
