    Now that we can load GC games in wii mode, how close are we to running them thru usb loading?

    Unfortunately the distance between now and a USB GC Loader involves multivariable calculus, which I'm too lazy to do right now.

    The easter egg has nothing to do with GC USB LOADING. Wait for DIOS MIOS.

    Seriously, if I see one more Topic, I'm going to scream. Obviously you didn't knew about DIOS MIOS, or you don't care, because you can't pirate with it .

    I agree, its a very easy solution for GC loading over USB. BUY A FREAKING WODE!

    Any monkey that can compile SNEEK could have already done this by uncommenting two lines in /es/EC.c (120,121) and ta-da any gamecube games launched from any method (SM, Gecko OS, etc.) will launch MIOS directly.

    In revision 105 Crediar took these lines out, so you just have to add them to the ES_BootSystem function in /es/EC.c (adding them after line line 119 would work)

    if( *TitleID == 0x0000000100000100LL )
    *TitleID = 0x0000000100000101LL;

    Pretty much anybody could figure out what the code does by just looking at it. (BC = 0x100, MIOS = 0x101)

    So what you are saying is that with this we will be able to run GC games on a HDD thru USB, by adding those two lines into the code of sneek...?? I really doubt it...!! [​IMG]

    No. He's saying you can load GC games with full Wii CPU by adding those two lines, effectively doing the same as the "easter egg" in Waninkoko's cIOS r20.

    This works because BC is what shuts down the Wii hardware, before switching to MIOS, and by adding those lines, you make it that if the system is told to launch BC, it'll launch MIOS instead, so the hardware isn't shut down. The easter egg in the cios does effectively the same thing, by just loading MIOS without going to BC first.

    Considering it hasn't even been released, how do you know what you can/can't do with DIOS MIOS? Sure, crediar's said lots of things about it, but that was also the case with wanin and rev20 and TriiForce. [​IMG]

    Besides, renting, buying or borrowing games, dumping them and returning them is still piracy. Yay poor Pirates!

    Ha, so that's what the Easter Egg is! Man, USB loading might be nice and whatever, but playing GameCube games faster is tight. Unstable, huh? Ah well. That's still pretty cool.

    So if TitleID is "0x0000000100000100LL" lets reassign the same value back to TitleID?
    What's the point in that?
