    1. I f you haven't done it yet, update your USBloaderGX from v3.0 r1180 to v3.0 r1215.

    2. download Devo_src package on the first post of devolution thread, inside there's a "loader.bin" file.

    3. put the loader.bin on your SD card (or usb) where you want (default folder is /apps/gc_devo/)

    4. if you used another folder, launch USBLoaderGX and go to settings > user paths > DEVO Loader path : Set the folder where you put your loader.bin file.

    5. either in global settings (for ALL your gamecube games) or in the individual game settings : Set "GameCube Mode" to "Devolution" instead of "MIOS".

    Launch the game, it will flash the wii light until your ISO is verrified.
    Put your retail disc to verify the backup, then play the game.

    Sweet! thank you so much! it seems to work, when i put a game in it will accept it and download it. My question is there a way to get all of my games i already downloaded with devolution already to pop up on usb loader gx? or do i have to go and reinstall every game again?

    To see them in USBloaderGX, you need to move the games in subfolder.
    USBLoaderGX only look in subfolder for the moment.

    You currently have :
    /games/game name1.iso
    /games/game name2.iso

    you need :
    /games/subfolder 1/game.iso
    /games/subfolder 2/game.iso

    The subfolder can be either :
    Game name
    GameID
    GameID_Game name
    Game name [GameID]

    The last two has a faster loader's launch time as it's reading name and ID from the folder instead of opening each ISO one by one to read the game data.
    the game's filename must be "game" (not the game name).

    If you have games with multi-discs, put both files in the same folder, game.iso and disc2.iso


    You can use tools to automatically move the files (GameCube ISO manager, or DMToolbox using RAW option to keep 1:1 iso), or do it manually.

    If you move the files to subfolder, maybe you don't have to re-verify the game. (I don't know, you'll have to try).
    But if you delete/copy, you will have to verify them again.

    Your ROMs ? for other systems (Snes/GBA/GBC/etc.)?
    USBLoaderGX doesn't support plugin system to list/launch external emulators.
    Wiiflow is doing it.
