    - Fixed text loading from NAND to USB in Sneek+DI mode

    R9 beta 51 - > R9 beta 52

    - Added basic Sneek+DI/Uneek+DI support.(with lots of help from Crediar) Boot Sneek/Uneek, and then boot NeoGamma.
    - Added support for different .gct files on multi disc games. (example filename: RSPP012.gct if Wii Sports PAL had 2 discs)

    R9 beta 50 - > R9 beta 51

    - Added the possibility to boot games with the correct IOS("correct IOS") or the cIOS with the correct base IOS("Autodetect")

    - Changed DVD error messages
    - Added cIOS identification with info added into the cIOS by the installer/ModMii(only new cIOS)
    - Improved usb HDD detection, expecting at least 100 sectors and fixed mem2 memory allocation(fixes usb detection with cIOS with base IOS58)

    - Gamecube multi game disc selection moved to wii mode(compatible cMIOS + GC mode 'internal' only) see gamecube.txt for details
    - Fixed controls(support 2nd, 3rd and 4th controller, shutdown always possible when waiting for button press)

    Gamecube backups on discs mini FAQ:
    Requirements for gamecube backup launching from disc with NeoGamma:
    - A Wii with a backup compatible drive(if the wii is not white, it's not backup compatible, backup resistant white Wiis were sold since christmas '09, no backup disc compatible Wiis in the shelves anymore 1-2 months later). Easy test: In the latest NeoGamma, remove disc from the drive and select launch game from disc. You will get a read error. If your drive is too new, NeoGamma will say so. (after read errors when trying to read from disc)

    - A GC backup compatible cIOS installed and used. For testing until it works, install d2x56v6, as it just works for gamecube games and 95% of all Wii games, including the latest ones. NeoGamma shows at the bottom of the screen which cIOS is used. If does not say: "d2x56v6 (249)", you did not install the cIOS correctly.

    - A GC homebrew compatible cMIOS. If you don't know which one you have, just install a the recommend one. cMIOS and MIOS always overwrite any MIOS or cMIOS you currently have installed. Waninkoko's cMIOS up to rev5(including) are not GC homebrew compatible. All of WiiGator's cMIOS should be compatible, but the original WiiGator cMIOS might suffer from stability issues. Well this should only affect the switching into GC mode, once a game is running, there are no differences. Recommend cMIOS: The one from this thread, because: It's NeoGamma compatible, still allows to play retail GC discs from disc channel without issues, it allows to use the debugger when booting with patched MIOS and it's just best tested and known to work.

    - The correct options in NeoGamma:
    Storage device: SD or USB using cIOS(the others should work too, but most people try everything, so...)
    Gamecube Mode: internal (MIOS just boots MIOS like the disc channel does, external boots sd:/NeoGamma/GC.dol in GC mode)
    Force Video: Disc(with component cables, you might need to try all options)
    Patch Video: No(only relevant on import games with color issues)
    Reloader, Backup plugin, Audio fix and Patched MIOS: Auto
    GC Ocarina&debugger: No

    - A valid game image written on the disc. Well the best way to find out if this is the reason why GC backup launching is not working at all is to create a clean new dump from a retail disc with SuperDump or CleanRip(newer than SuperDump and maybe better). Multi game discs are valid discs, but i can only say that the multi game discs created with MultiGame ISO Creator v3.5.4F+ work for sure. MultiGame ISO Creator v4.x is known to NOT work with NeoGamma! Important: If a game has audio streaming, then shrinking it will break the image. When audio streaming games are shrunk, they also need to be fstfixed with the 32K fix in order to work properly. The 32K fix in NeoGamma might be able to fix this on-the-fly, but it's still experimental. The expected error is that the game crashes or shows a read error when the game tries to play an audio stream.

    - Being able to get into the actual GC loader, which requires "GC mode internal" + a compatible cMIOS. When it says "NeoGamma GC Backup Launcher" on top of the screen, only then it is actually executing GC code, only then NeoGamma will do anything more about GC games than Gecko OS or any other loader that just boots MIOS. (which won't even boot all retail GC games correctly right now)

    - If you have a modchip, then multi game discs won't work with "GC mode internal", only single game discs. If you boot GCOS from NeoGamma, then GCOS is responsible for compatiblity, video modes, cheats and anything else.

    - And last but not least: A good disc. Only use high quality media and never burn slower than 4x. If you believe you need to burn slow, then use 4x, all others try 8x,12x or 16x. And DVD+Rs need the booktype set to DVD-R(dvd-rom) on burning, or the Wii won't be able to read them. This procedure is called bitsetting, just google it. Especially if the games can't be booted at all and NeoGamma doesn't even switch to the internal GC loader, then it's a disc or .iso problem for sure.

    Official gamecube compatiblity list:
    (NeoGamma should play everything that plays on WiiGator's loader, there's no need to flood the list with "works on NeoGamma" and similar)

    Recommended cIOS:
    d2x with IOS56 as base IOS installed as IOS249. It's the cIOS with the best compatiblity and the least bugs from all cIOS you can use for NeoGamma(Hermes cIOS are not supported). Only some games that want to use IOS57(some games with microphones) or IOS58(games with usb 2.0 stuff, like a cam) will require to use a different base IOS. Since beta51, NeoGamma supports to automatically load other cIOS when another cIOS with another base IOS is better("IOS for games: Autodetect" setting), so it's recommend to install d2x with base IOS57 as IOS250 as your 2nd cIOS. How to install:
    1. Download ModMii:

    2a. Run ModMii on your PC, create a wad for the latest d2x cIOS with base IOS56("4"->"249d2x56")
    2b. Run ModMii on your PC, create a wad for the latest d2x cIOS with base IOS57("4"->"250d2x57")

    4a. If you don't have IOS236, install it, if you have it, skip this step...
    4b. Run WAD Manager on your Wii, select to use IOS236 and install the wads.

    More info on d2x:

    Recommend cMIOS for homebrew,retail&backup discs and softmodded&hardmodded Wiis. It's WiiGator's cMIOS just in a new installer(only required for GC mode internal or external):
    New version(based on MIOSv10):

    Other cMIOS:
    Old version(based on MIOSv4):

    Alternative cMIOS for homebrew but for retail discs only(only required for GC mode internal or external):

    Useful tools:

    Put several GC games on a single game disc:
    MultiGame ISO Creator v3.5.4F+
    (Attention: Please use "fstfix t" on all shrunken .isos, after shrinking, before putting on multi game discs. This should fix all issues with games that "don't work shrunken". And it might also increase the reading speed for those games.) The reason for this is that audio streams(.adp files and some others) need 32KB alignment, but the shrinking kills it, "fstfix t" gets all files to 32KB alignment.
    Important: For some reason MultiGame ISO Creator v4.x is not working with NeoGamma, so use v3.5.4F+
    Also keep in mind that modchip + multi game .isos don't work with the internal GC mode.

    "Fix" GC .iso files
    Wiped GCM Fixer 1.5F also callled Fstfix 1.5F
    Baten Kaitos works if both discs are put on the same multi game disc with MultiGame ISO Creator v3.5.4F+, and the 1st disc is patched with the options:
    FSTFIX BKdisc1.gcm t s g
    and the 2nd with these:
    FSTFIX BKdisc2.gcm t s f

    Open GC .iso files and extract stuff(more or less WiiScrubber for GC games)


    All "new" GC stuff is only revevant if a compatible cMIOS is used and NeoGamma is set to internal GC mode.
    Note that Waninkoko's cMIOS up to rev5(including) are not compatible with GC mode internal and external.

    For more details about the different GC modes see gamecube.txt
    The NeoGamma gamecube modes allow to change NeoGamma's behaviour when booting gamecube discs.

    All these settings are only relevant if there's a GC disc in the drive and it is "launched"

    Recommend MIOS(WiiGator's cMIOS):

    Once Waninkoko released rev6 of his cMIOS, NeoGamma will be able to use both GC loaders(its own and Waninkokos') without the need to install a new cMIOS. (it will obviously require to have Waninkoko's cMIOS rev6 installed) With GC mode MIOS it will load with Waninkoko's loader, with internal GC mode it will use its own loader. This way it will be possible to switch quickly between both to get the best from both.

    The modes:

    Just boot the MIOS, boots the GC disc the same way as Gecko OS and the old Gamma do

    Makes the MIOS boot the _homebrew_ GC .dol located in the NeoGamma folder on sd card(sd:/NeoGamma/GC.dol). This is can be used for example to use WiiGator's 0.2 GC backup launcher instead of the modified version NeoGamma uses

    Launches the included GC backup launcher, which is a modification of WiiGator's 0.2 GC backup launcher. Currently this doesn't support booting with a patch MIOS, but has some improvements regaring the reloader. For multi game discs, the selection which game to boot is moved to wii mode. Select 2nd disc with 1/Z, if no 2nd disc is selected it is auto detected. To switch the disc in-game, just eject and reinsert the disc.

    *external and internal GC mode require a compatible cMIOS. WiiGator's cMIOS are compatible,

    Waninkoko's cMIOS rev 6+ will most likely also be compatible

    List of achieved improvements for GC loading:
    (improvements over WiiGator's loader)

    - Play retail GC discs
    - Play retail "problem games" like Eternal Darkness, Starfox Adventures and Zelda Ocarina of Time
    - Ocarina/Wiird on retail GC discs
    - Select which game to boot from multi game discs in wii mode(NeoGamma itself)
    - Autodetection for 2nd disc on multi game discs
    - Increased speed for the reloader(setting: fast, forced is as slow as before but may have a better compatibility)
    - The reloader always stays active now
    - Optional alternative Audio Status Request handling(gets Ikaruga to work)
    - Fixing .elf files that are loaded to a buffer first(fixes 007 Agent under Fire crash after the 2nd level)

    TODO/wish list:
    (only GC related)

    - Get progressive video mode to work on all games that support it(can't test myself => i can't do it)
    - Fix the 50% slowdown that can happen on 480p forcing, or at least warn about it(can't test myself => i can't do it)
    - Write to SRAM, this could be the solution for some video mode issues, and allow to force languages
    - Proper Audio Status Request handling(the old handling breaks Ikaruga, the new breaks Eternal Darkness). Priority very low, no game reported to not work because of improper audio streaming handling
    - Find a way to fake/force the language setting(SRAM?)
    - .wip patches for gamecube games
    - Alternative .dol loading(maybe won't be done, because the reloader seems to work nicely)

    "List of achieved improvements:
    - Play retail GC discs
    - Select which game to boot from multi game discs in wii mode(NeoGamma itself)"

    Will this also fix the black and white, auto booting to PAL, issue on multi disc games on multi iso image?

    Currently stumped as to how to enable color. Forcing NTSC has no effect. Only GameCube Launcher 0.1x doesn't auto boot the inserted disc and plays in color.

    Nice improvements as well! Keep up the good work WiiPower! [​IMG]

    It should force NTSC if you select that in NeoGamma's options. And you need to have the correct cMIOS and settings. And the game needs to be NTSC, i think on GC we have the same video mode problem as on Wii, some games don't like the wrong video mode.

    With internal mode I always get codedump with single backup discs, but I could launch all of my games on my only multidisc.

    Neogamma R8 boots single GC backups well in internal mode!

    I only have only 1 GC backup that's a multi game disc. I will try to fix this soon.

    Edit: I think i found the bug that caused this. Maybe it caused my PAL60 problem as well.

    Beta 3 is out. The only GC related change is a fixed bug for discs that contain only 1 game

    Beta 3 should fix at least this problem. I'm almost sure you have video mode set to wii or disc, am i right?

    Wind Waker (PAL) still doesn't work.
    It would be really nice if you could later on also work on support for 480p in PAL games. I know that the Qoob Pro modchip for Gamecube could force a lot of PAL games into 480p.

    If I wanted to have both cMIOS's installed, couldn't I potentially have one cMIOS installed to a different title, then modify the source to look there?

    Not possible. NeoGamma actually starts BC which starts the MIOS. But i think it won't be required once Waninkoko releases rev6 of his cMIOS. With that you can set NeoGamma to GC mode MIOS -> Use Waninkoko's loader or set the GC mode to internal -> My GC loader. And the loader is the only relevant difference between the MIOS. Well the MIOS revision you use as base might be relevant, but that should be it.

    Beta 4 got me PAL480i on a NTSC game, and NTSC480i on some PAL games. PAL480i is NOT working for PAL games, but that shouldn't be an issue, if a PAL game supports PAL60, then it allows to set it on boot, or it sets automatically to it.

    PS: The curent status on Ocarina/Wiird doesn't look good, it freezes the game directly on boot. I tried with the new code handler and a hooktype that Nicksasa created for me.
