    I heard rumors that it has better compatibility with Wiigator's Backup Launcher 0.3 Gamma. Is that true?

    a little better because the game runs in the ios it was designed to run in, but the real benefit is disc channel loading.

    Its not real "legal"... But word is that's being worked out and you cant beat the performance imo it easily matches the quality of most mod chips in compatibility and is an ever improving endeavor dip modules and cios ios updates ect.

    Do you still have to patch games like Call of Duty 3 to IOS 249 if you're running it out of cIOScorp?

    No it doesn't. At least for most games.

    Cioscorp has the backup dip inside every IOS, that has a dip module at all. But all old IOS (

    No. But for the question is: "Will cioscorp some day have the same features like the Backup Launcher?" I'm thinking about Ocarina, language forcing, the 2 video mode options(Wii and Disc Region) and video mode patches. I think the answer to that is no, not until someone with real good coding skills(Waninkoko,WiiGator,Requiem and up) spends a lot of time for this.
