    So, many people have had success running mods for Brawl such as Brawl Minus, Project M, etc using a raw SD card image, Dolphin, and the Brawl/RSBE01 ISO image all with Gecko OS with success. Now, with Dolphin, the IOS36.wad needs to be installed, which I've already done so that's non-issue, however, no matter how many times I load the SD.raw with Gecko OS 1.9.3.1, it always yields with a "No DVD" error, despite having made Brawl the default ISO. At first, I thought it was my ISO, since I swapped and replaced so many files and have increased its size beyond 7.4 GB, however, I tried a clean unmodified ISO on my HDD, same result, so the ISO image itself isn't the issue.

    Then I tried various versions of Dolphin, 4.0, 4.0.2, 4.0- revision 1302, nothing, still gives me the DVD error when I use boot.elf in the Gecko OS folder, I don't know how these people are able to use the SD.raw with Gecko OS and the ISO on Dolphin with so much success when I'm not getting a damn thing up and running for these Brawl mods. I know Project M can be run on Dolphin using this very method, as I've seen many videos and spoken with many people, so either I have rotten luck, it's PEBKAC, or I just so happen to be using versions of Dolphin that conflict with the homebrew app and the virtual SD card. Tried asking on the Dolphin forums to no avail. Has anyone encountered this issue?

    I've followed a very thorough tutorial on how to properly place the files, folders, what to name them, etc, on the SD, but that too seems to be in vain, I have no idea why it "works" with Gecko OS when it clearly doesn't. The video I followed is this one here:



    Again, my ISO rip is clean, but even that refused to load with the virtual SD card or Gecko OS, so I know the ISO isn't the issue. And yes, SD.raw is placed in the Wii directory and "insert SD card" is enabled, as is making Brawl the default ISO.

    Dolphin version being used: tried 4.0, 4.0.2, 4.0 - 1302
