    Absolutely. Just make a separate folder for each version you want in the "sd: /apps" folder.

    For example:
    Code:
    sd:/apps/Nintendon-1
    sd:/apps/Nintendon-2
    sd:/apps/Nintendon-3
    sd:/apps/Nintendon-4

    I'm using a real GC controller, using R+Z+Start restarts my Wii.

    But there is a option to exit to USB Loader GX Instead?

    Because everytime when i need change my GC games, i restart the console.

    If you use Nintendont for saving your games, the files will be stored in the "saves" folder of your USB device.

    If you then open Gamecube games via the USB GX Loader, all save files will be deleted/overwritten because USB GX Loader also creates a folder named "saves".

    Just wanted to let you know. I lost about 15h of gameplay, but better now then later.

    I'm using the original Wii btw.

    I’m having trouble with an F-Zero GX [GFZE01] ISO trimmed with GCIT. The game is in the correct directory (usb1:/games/F-Zero GX [GFZE01]/game.iso). I have a European Wii (using 16:9 480p component output) with the Gamecube IPL enabled and an official Gamecube controller. I have Nintendont v5.486, and I launch my games from USB Loader GX v3.0 Rev1262. I have everything on my Maxtor USB 3.0 HDD (around 500GB in size, formatted as FAT32 with 32K clusters using Wii Backup manager) with a USB Y-cable.

    My settings for the game are:
    Video mode: Disc Default
    Progressive Patch: Off
    Video Deflicker: Off
    PAL50 Patch: Off
    Force Widescreen: Off
    WiiU widescreen: Off
    Video scale: Default (40)
    Video offset: Default (0)
    Ocarina: Off
    Remove read speed limit: Off
    Triforce arcade mode: Off
    Memory card emulation: On
    Memory card block size: 59
    USB-HID controller: Off
    Native controller: On
    LED activity: On
    Debug: Off
    OSReport: Off
    Log to file: On
    Disc select prompt: Default (Off)
    Nintendont loader path: usb1:/apps/Nintendont/

    When I launch it, I get past the Gamecube start up screen, then once I get past the “AV” logo my Wii immediately switches off. Can somebody please help me with this?

    Don't use GCIT to trim GameCube ISOs. Use DMToolbox. First try a 1:1 ISO to see if the issue goes away.

    I suppose if anyone cares about new nintendont things, I have started working on BBA emulation yet again thanks to this bounty:
    https://www.bountysource.com/issues/23560173
    So I guess in the future it is not impossible that I can get it working cause the route I am now taking trying to work it out already feels much better than my earlier attempt, no clue as to how long it'll actually take me of course cause theres always that chance I get horribly stuck like I did a couple years ago, we'll see how it goes ;)

    Are you only targetting layer 2 for the LAN games, or are you also intending to support layer 3? PSO and Homeland players just felt a disturbance in the force. :P

    OK, so now I tried an unmodified, non-trimmed and uncompresses 1:1 ISO (hashes checked and are the same as on redump.org) with the same settings, and the game boots normally. However, after about 1 or 2 minutes of gameplay the audio begins stuttering (like a broken record) and after a few seconds the game freezes completely.

    Can anyone tell me what's wrong? What if I tried to 32K align the ISO with DMToolbox?
    BTW sorry for the potato quality, had to compress due to slow internet connection. Also the sorry for the shaky vamera, I had to hold the camera between my knees and I was tweaked out while filming.

    Hello.:)

    That is sad to hear that you have still troubles with the game.:(

    I have tried 2-3 Races (about 10 Minutes playing Time) with no issues.

    Do you have this issue ONLY on F-Zero GX ? :(
    Did you use any cheats ? (I have tried some like Energy/Unlock Vehicle - works fine).

    I also found a Thread with a similar Issue:

    https://gbatemp.net/threads/grafik-issues-on-nintendont.543002/

    Maybe you can ask User @Bomberman82 of he has a Solution finally.


    Look at this Thread on GitHub please (but it is 3 Years old):

    https://github.com/fernandocass/nintendon-t/issues/156


    The Compatibility List says that the Game works:

    Sadly, nothing from those links related to my problem at all. However, I downloaded the European version ISO and it seems to work perfectly with my current settings (plus progressive patch and unlocked read speed).

    im guessing your usb or sd was having issues with reading the file fast enough, some games are very strick with reading speeds, if you have a slow sd or usb you get stutering, and hdd is always the best choise or a class 10 and up sd card.

    Just curious: neither Wii nor Wii U have LAN capability, right?
    I think it was planned before the release of the Wii. However, one (or both) of the Call of Duty games for Wii U have a LAN feature in the menu.

    OK, now I’m having trouble with the European F-Zero GX [GFZP01] iso too. 1:1 copy with hashes verified against redump.org

    I’ve completed the Ruby cup with no issues, but when I started the Sapphire cup the game starts freezing randomly. I tried disabling Progressive patch and unlocked read speed but it didn’t help. (First time I got to the 3rd track and the game froze halfway, second time the game froze about 15 seconds into the 1st track.)

    I tried with and without unlocked read speed, but had the same issue. I have a USB 3.0 HDD so it should be as fast as the Wii’s USB 2.0 interface will allow. Also, the Wii’s SD card slot speed is limited (I have a 32GB class 10 card I think, but the read speed would probably be lower than that). Anyways I doubt it’s anything to do with read speeds.

    Hello.:)

    That is sad to hear you have still no luck with this game.:(
    Your point with the reading speed is maybe a good attempt.

    Can you try a USB 2.0 device if possible only ONE Partition in FAT32 please ? A HDD preferred if possible.:)
    I will try it on my SD Card too (Transcend 16GB Class 10) and give it a longer run this time.

    Thank you.:)
