    Hi,
    just wondering... is it possible to include an IOS selection in the settings of USBLoader which is loaded when you start a game?
    Since a few games (e.g. Monster Hunter G) require a specific IOS (in case of MHG it would be IOS55).
    Softchip can also do that so it might be possible...
    thanks for responding and if anyone could code that into USBLoader GX... [​IMG]
    kind regards

    It would only work if you patched all of your IOS to use the EHCI and modified DIP modules, like cioscorp with USB support in every IOS.

    USB Loader GX or whatever it's called has an option to boot the game in a specific IOS. Dunno if that works though.

    Thinking about it it might be a better option to make another cIOS from IOS 55 with those patches and install to a standard location, say IOS248? then USB loaders could automatically pick that cIOS for games that need IOS 55.

    Yeah, but how do we make it? For me I want to play Fifa 08 (way better then 09) but need cIOS21 with USB support. Hmmm.....

    Does this Monster Hunter require the IOS or does it require to be patched if you play it in Gamma?

    If it requires the IOS, you need to create a cIOS from that IOS, and start the usb loader with it. No chance to change the IOS on the fly like SoftChip does, as soon as you do an IOS reload, usb storage is dead until restart.

    If it requires IOS Version patching, then the game won't work as discussed 1000 times until a fix of some kind is released.

    Well, the new GeckoOS (1.9.1) can also boot it without any special settings... dunno if cIOS CORP is required to run anyway.

    Ah okay... that's sad but we can't change it ^^ Thanks for clearing things up.

    This loader http://gbatemp.net/index.php?showtopic=149922 lets you select between IOS 222 and 249, does that need a restart before it will use that setting?

    If they fixed the usb storage dead after IOS reload, that would be very nice, but i doubt it. I guess IOS249 => IOS222 works if you don't reread the wbfs partition data, as IOS222 only uses a dip command to change which game to load.

    Yes, but only for disc based stuff. If you have cioscorp or if you even deleted all cioscorp IOS(except the system menu IOS) doesn't change anything for the usb loaders.
