Pros and con's of each? Can both be used at the same time?
DIOS MIOS replaces the MIOS, which is used for native Gamecube support. This means it can't be used on a Wii-U.
Nintendont can play Gamecube games in Wii mode, meaning it doesn't replace the MIOS. So you can use both.
Compatibility for games can vary between the two, so it's nice to have both. Nintendont is being actively updated, while DIOS MIOS generally is not. DIOS MIOS can use various Nintendo peripherals, such as memory cards and GBA connectivity, and can use virtual memory cards. Nintendont can't use Gamecube peripherals, but I guess it can use other non-Nintendo devices for controllers. Also, it does not support real memory cards.
I'm not sure if Nintendont has an in-game screenshot tool either.
Yes both can be used on regular Wii and neither one has an obtuse DRM restriction.
I made a comparison chart with many GameCube playing method:
DIOS MIOS 2.11 doesn't support Audio streaming, but Crediar released a video showing the feature added to DM/L. It might be released to the public (2.12 or 3.0?).
You can install at the same time:
- a MIOS Solution (either MIOS, cMIOS, DIOS MIOS or DIOS MIOS Lite)
Great chart! It would be nice to add info about gcn microphone compatibility in section 'Features (Other)'. I can confirm that Wiikey Fusion and DIOS MIOS Lite r59 Mod support mic games (eg: Mario Party 6 & 7, Odama, Karaoke Revolution Party).
I moved it to a separate Peripherals section.
"Other" will be for software settings (screenshot, patches, etc.)
For the spreadsheet I just want to point out that you can use a real memory card with Devolution, and that it now has screenshot support via wireless network. I forgot to test GBA-GC connectivity though, and I can't do that for a little while...
Edit: To be clear, I'm saying that I've confirmed those things as compatible.
