The last days I was working on a loader for GC backups. This is only a preview. The release will be within the next week.

A tester made a video showing it in action. Sorry for the bad quality.

EDIT:Here is a better video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4Xak8qdMKbU&fmt=18

Here are some notes:

I tested it with the games I have. All games seem to be fully working. There may be games which are not working.

IOS249 with backup support need to be installed (e.g. my cIOS r7 from backuplauncher 0.3 gamma).

DVD speed is still limited to 3x.

There are sometimes problems with the DVD read speed. So there is sometimes a very short delay in a few games. The game play is only barely influenced. This was only the case for one of my games.

If you eject the disc, no disc can be detected after it. For 2 disc games use the second disc to boot, if you need to change the disc.

You will need to copy the following files to a SD card, if you don't have a internet connection (either Version 5 or Version 6, both is working). There are problems with the nintendo servers in the last time. You may not be able to download it.

EDIT: MIOS Version 4 is also supported.

MIOS Version 5

EDIT: MIOS Version 6 seems not to be available from the nintendo servers. I thought that I have used it in the past.

MIOS Version 8

Nice for those who want to play that MGS game. And what about the Wii backup launcher, is there any progress made on that one?

The wii backup launcher is amazing. The compatibility is great. It doesn't need the attention as much as other projects do.

You are right, it is amazing, but its not done, its not a done proyect, maybe its just me but I like to finish a proyect b4 I start another, besides I dont think a GC loader is really a BIG necesity when the Wii backup loader hasnt been finished yet.

I have a question, do GC Multigames work? Or can we only read the 1.4gb of the disc?
It says something about 2 game discs except it makes little sense to me.

However I think a better question would be: Can you get it to laod games from the SD slot? That would be amazing.

This is the homebrew scene. Its not an essay you just finish. Projects like these tend not to finish or take years to complete. If this kind of mentality was used in the homebrew scene people would still be perfecting the twilight hack.

A GC Multigame Disc is when you use a FullSized DVD and put more than 1 GC game on it
I know what it is, I just know don't how it works really. And I was pointing at this for your answer:

QUOTE(WiiGator @ Feb 1 2009, 06:45 PM) For 2 disc games use the second disc to boot, if you need to change the disc.

VVV That makes more sense now, thanks. I never knew they made games with more than one disc for GC.

    @Jayro, I don't see whats so special about the DS ML, its just a DS lite in a phat shell. At least the phat model had louder speakers, whereas the lite has a much better screen.

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    They probably said "Hey, why not we combine the two together and make a 'new' DS to sell".

    It's a DS Lite in a slightly bigger DS Lite shell.

    It's not a Nintendo / iQue official product, it's a 3rd party custom.

    @SylverReZ if you could find a v5 DS ML you would have the best of both worlds since the v5 units had the same backlight brightness levels as the DS Lite unlockable with flashme

    but that's a long shot

    A woman with no arms and no legs was sitting on a beach. A man comes along and the woman says, "I've never been hugged before." So the man feels bad and hugs her. She says "Well i've also never been kissed before." So he gives her a kiss on the cheek. She says "Well I've also never been fucked before." So the man picks her up, and throws her in the ocean and says "Now you're fucked."

    anyways, we need to re-normalize physical media

    if i didn't want my games to be permanent, then i'd rent them

    Agreed, that why I try to buy all my games on disc, Xbox anyways. Switch games (which I pirate tbh) don't matter much, I stay offline 24/7 anyways.

  • cearp @ cearp:
    @BakerMan - you can still "own" digital media, arguably easier and better than physical since you can make copies and backups, as much as you like.

    The issue is DRM
  • cearp @ cearp:
    You can buy drm free games / music / ebooks, and if you keep backups of your data (like documents and family photos etc), then you shouldn't lose the game. but with a disk, your toddler could put it in the toaster and there goes your $60

    :rofl2:
  • cearp @ cearp:
    still, I agree physical media is nice to have. just pointing out the issue is drm
  • rqkaiju2 @ rqkaiju2:
    i like physical media because it actually feels like you own it. thats why i plan on burning music to cds
  • cearp @ cearp:
    It's nice to not have to have a lot of physical things though, saves space
