as in the topic title... can I do it ?
yes BUT I think you need a chip
Yes, you are able to use normal DVD's for GC Games
Yeah, but I would consider it a waste of space. You know that, without shrinking, you can fit 3 Gamecube games onto a DVD-5?
Shrinked, I have been able to fit as many as 5 Gamecube games on a DVD-5.
So to answer your question, yes you can do it, but if you have others you would probably want to burn those along with it so that you have more efficient use of the space.
No, you do not need a chip. I only have what you may call "softmod" and I am able to play my backups of my GC games on normal DVD's.
I see , but after having burned the cd, how can I choose the game I want to play ?
Oh yes. Every cMIOS option allows you to pick which game to load from the disc. I personally use Waninkoko's cMIOS, and if his disc channel loader doesn't work I have a channel for WiiGator's GC loader.
The key though is making sure the game's work. I've found that many gamecube games can be shrunk, but not all, and most of them will work on multi discs.
In any case, it's well worth the effort of looking into before you burn considering how many discs you can save.
Thanks ! One last thing, canu link me a guide tha explains hw to install a gc backup launcher ?
Well, I don't know of where a guide may be found, but they come with readme's so you can use those.
There is where you can get Wiigator's loader and cMIOS. I use Waninkoko's cMIOS instead due to it giving you the option if installing with a wad, while wiigator's needs the internet.
If you have trouble with that or want Waninkoko's cMIOS, just ask.
thanks. I'll do it^^
And in order to brn the dvds, is it ok imgburn at 3x?
Yeah, IMGburn has worked for me just fine on Wii/Gamecube burning, also PS2. I have also used Alcohol 120 successfully.
