    Hello! I noticed that the GC back-up package thingy comes with an app called "GCOS MultiGame Creator V4F" in both .exe and .dol form. Before I burn my GC iso file do I need to patch it with that file? If not, what do I patch it with, if I have to patch it at all. I did open my .iso file with the "GCOS MultiGame Creator V4F" file (the .exe one) but the cmd just popped up and went away, so I believe nothing happened. So if I do need to patch it with that file, how do I get it to work? Or do I just burn with imgburn and that's it?

    ~ Thanks for any info! [​IMG]

    No just burn image file with your favourite burning software at a low speed and you be right.

    Just burn the game
    The program lets you put multiple games on 1 disc

    Iif you do put multiple games in a DVD (maybe something like Luigi's Mansion and Super Mario Sunshine), will you be able to choose which game you want to play on it?

    Use the GCOS program you have, or this one (that has a GUI)
    select the iso or gcm files you want with add ISO
    click create multigame ISO
    you get 1 new ISO, which you burn on the disc
    then load the gc backup launcher and use the d-pad to choose game

    EDIT: added the this on link [​IMG]

    In the package, there's another zip inside. You put the stuff inside that second zip on your SD card, install them. Then burn any gamecube game on a DVD-R disc, insert it and use the RunGCLoader app. No need to patch the ISO, just burn it.


    Unless damnit I fell asleep at the keyboard and never posted it.

    Ok, I downloaded the program you linked to and I see that there's a option on the top right corner of the program that says "region". Do I set that region option to the region of my GCN isos? Or do I set it on the desired region (I have a NTSC Wii). If the former, what region do I set it as if I have a mix of PAL, NTSC and NTSC-J games?

    I set mine to USA, and burnt the new iso. It works great and you can select the GC game you want to play. It's awesome! (I have a 3.2u wii, and I used ntsc-u games.) Tell me if it works for you.

    I don't have my wii right now (college >_>). When spring break comes, I'll be sure to test this out. But I'm sure by then we'll have a updated version of the GCBL so it wouldn't really matter...
