probably more to come... for your reading: MPlayerDVD (only one version currently available) [as well as various other DVD-enabled homebrew] -Uses: "Normal" DVDx install for unchipped, OR PatchMii install (with Patchmii already installed, of course, as IOS254) for chippers. OLD leaked Waninkoko loader/WiiGator 0.1 Launcher -Uses: "Advanced" DVDx install pointed at IOS249 (where cIOSrev5 should be installed before that point) [incompatible with MPlayerDVD for that reason] NEWER WiiGator 0.3b Launcher -Uses: no DVDx install at all (because cIOS rev6 has a custom DI module) NEWEST WiiGator 0.3g Launcher -Uses: no DVDx install at all (because cIOS rev7 has a custom DI plugin) More: SoftChip r62 is just the applauncher, the SoftChip team have not yet released their own cIOS, so the app runs off of cIOSrev7, and requires no installer. WiiPower has made a modified version of a cIOSrev7 installer, which will install a slightly modified cIOSrev7 to several different IOS placeholders...this is relevant to softchip only because SoftChip is the only applauncher that allows you to select which IOS to use, so if you install your special cIOS wiipower made to say...234, SoftChip is the only applauncher that can run off that without completely recompiling the program. Even more: expanding on applaunchers vs. cIOS files.... the "launchers" themselves are basically dependent on the cIOS, because that is "Custom System Files" so with each launcher setup, you're going to have the applauncher (aka: .dol or "Channel" wad) and the cIOS (installed via an installer, or through wads in my pack) it's a 2-part deal. softchip simply decided to start with a good applauncher and worry about making their cIOS later, so for now, it can basically only perform as good as the cIOSrev7 allows it to, which is the same gamma uses.
