    What's required?
    Latest NeoGamma:
    http://gbatemp.net/t219243-neogamma-r9-beta-test

    A compatible cMIOS:
    http://gbatemp.net/t228430-i-have-my-own-cmios-now-yay
    (WiiGator's cMIOS is also compatible)

    For Ocarina, you need a sd card or some FAT formatted usb storage

    For the debugger you need an usb gecko and a pc of course

    And retail discs

    (A cIOS shouldn't be required, and deleting stubs should also be not required, but it's only tested with a cIOS installed)

    Ocarina/Wiird doesn't work for backups, because the required code for running GC backups on a softmodded Wii uses the same memory as the Ocarina/Wiird code handler.

    Great stuff [​IMG]

    I think this is a lot better than the Action Replay imho.

    - Codes will be updated more often.
    - Easier for people to write their own codes.
    - No AR disc needed.
    - No need for a 251 blocks (2 MB) mem card in slot B.
    - Should work on backups too if you have a hard mod.

    I know this isnt a retail disc, but how well do you think a GCOS disc would work?

    I think AR codes can be converted to Ocarina codes, but i don't know how. This also allows to finds codes yourself, and i guess once i released a non backup version of it, there will be more than enough codes created.

    I posted this on the WODE forum earlier about this
    Thought I'd paste cause I'm lazy...erm busy [​IMG]
    Other modchips would be the same too, and some other stuff I could explain about how to convert them, or make them etc, but am off to bed, knackered and cant be bothered [​IMG]

    crap, now that this out, I can finally beat sunshine. Of course I have to buy the game, only rented the one time. Got like 70 stars or something like that in a week.

    I'd love to test this, but none of the games I own have codes on the WiiRD database -_-

    These are excellent news!!!!
    Congratulations WiiPower and thank you for all you have accomplished in the Wii scene so far!

    Just a question:If I use Neogamma to load a GC retail disk with some .gct codes in the 'codes' folder in the root of my SD,is it going to work?

    Ok i have decrypted and convertered codes for the sonic mega collection. going to test. Let you know if the programs worked.

    None of the codes worked. I used code manager to turn them on and make a gct file. Neo doesnt give me a no codes found message. So i don't know.

    update: After searching for awhile i found a link to this http://geckocodes.org/index.php?chid=G&r=E&l=all
    Been awhile didnt know there was a cube section. Too bad i don't own any games listed on there.

    This has nothing to do with gamecube usb loading. It gives us cheat codes. Nothing more, nothing less.
