    Anyway, good news!

    I'd guess improve compatibility. Which is a good thing, because quite a few games don't work with the most recent custom MIOS.

    I have not yet installed any cMIOS as I'm aware of but can still play Gamecube backups with GC Backup Launcher.

    What does cMIOS do exactly?

    it allows u to play gamecube backups... so either u have a cMIOS and u dont know it... or your wii has a modchip or something

    Ahh, so the modchip does that. So the cMIOS isn't needed by those who have a modchip? My modchip is one of the older D2Pro.

    Well I hope with this new cMIOS the Wii will be able to read burned GC disks with 6x [​IMG]

    Not happening for the same reason it hasn't ever happened for Wii disc backups. I thought we'd all learned that much a year ago.

    i'm assuming the mod chip does that, i know it does that for wii games... so i imagine it would do the same thing for GC games... but i'm not a mod chip expert... however it is the only explanation that makes sense... so yea:D

    Yes the modchip does read the GC backups and @6x and with the audio fix for the games that play the music off the disc, i have a D2Ckey in mine and have not found a single GC game it does not play [​IMG] granted i dont play all that many GC games but the wii's ive softmodded wouldnt play some of the ones i play with my chip, so i would assume compatibility will be increased which is great, Thanks Waninkoko!

    damn I wish gcn usb loader would be possible.... I guess it is but probably require huge amount of work that nobody is willing to spend.
