I was wondering if I can make USB Loader Gx load 2 drives at the same time. I find it annoying swapping drives and restarting the loader. Thanks

yes, you can do it, but you need specific cIOS :

- Hermes cIOS v4 or v5.1
- D2x cIOS v9 (deprecated)
- d2x v10-alt (beta53) <-- recommended

With one if these cIOS, it lets you use USB Port0 and Port1.


USBLoadrGX has an option to mount both Ports at the same time (one after the other, but keeps list of game in memory to use proper port when you launch the game).
- Settings > Loader settings > Loader's IOS : select one slot where you have one of the cIOS listed above. and reload the loader.
- Settings > HDD settings > Port : Both
- Settings > HDD settings > Partition : All (to list all partitions from all USB Port at the same time)

    I thought PS4/5 and Xbox One emulation would be kind of easy since they basically just a PC
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    they sorta are a pc
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They haslve dedicated on board chips that aren't tweaked like x64/x32 afaik
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    but its a custom os for both of them
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    designed for only specific hardware
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    so you have to learn to emulate that specific hardware which isn't as easy as you'd think
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    It's a locked down Linux distro basically
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    I think the only custom hardware is to do with the SSD and a security chip
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Probably combined in one chip
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They place married security chips onto boards iirc

    Honestly after the PS3 and 360 I just went full PC

    Every games basically cross platform they only have about 6 titles making it worth the $600 price tag
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Didn't see much need for a console, all the advantages have kind of disappeared
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    the ps3 used to support installing linux because the cpu was so powerful
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Then the games are $70 and they want to reboot and refresh the same game every year
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    The ps3 was always Linux they just found a way to make it open source
  • ColdBlitz @ ColdBlitz:
    I'm avoiding buying from the big 3 at all atm
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    At one point PC game pads where poorly supported, loading a game had setup, it was complicated. Now it's almost as easy as a console.

    Yeah even bt support for Xbox one controllers are just as easy as pairing

    considering the steamdeck can emulate the switch (yikes) theres almost 0 reason to buy the switch apart from playing online and using cartridges
