    Just to let you know that TheLemonMan made a custom SoftChip that loads ORIGINAL GCN Discs. He can be found on IRC. (#SoftChip - freenode)

    So...what's the point?!

    Aren't a quite a few other loaders that can do this and have been around for a while?

    What's the point of SoftChip then? Isn't there Gamma? Let's close it!

    Calm down guys. It's just a SoftChip mod which loads gamecube games(originals). If you have a modchip, it loads backups of course. Let's see if custom MIOS are possible, which are installed as IOSx. But custom MIOS will not lead to gamecube backups, it's a lot more complicated than a non coder could think.


    Why write SoftChip in the 1st place, Gamma does it too?

    There is absolutely ZERO point to this thread. GCN ORIGINALS are ALREADY LOADABLE on disc channel without ANY of these backup loaders or softchips or any modification whatsoever. GCN BACKUPS, on the other hand is much desired......I know all of you agree with me on this one...what a pointless function this is.
