    Hi everybody
    I have a problem with the Gamecube Saver made by dasda. Here's the problem:
    I don't know when it's finished with copying. I get a screen with Code Dump or something with a bunch of letters and numbers under it. And when I press A on that screen it said Reset. But I can't do anything. When I turn off my Wii there has nothing happened.

    ok rename the save to something like PK.gci(sorry i cant rememebr what the extention is ment to be its in the readme) then try install it, just run it, and then check if its on your memory card after, if i remember its ment to get a dump code because he never really finished codeing it, he just useing some dirty hacks to get it together

    All you have to remember is to keep the file name as 2 characters. They can be any character, just either one or two characters in length.
    E.g: A.gci, AA.gci

    It says this in the Wiibrew entry of the program. http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/Gamecube_Saver

    couldnt we run homebrew in gc mode this way eventually, just by doing what team twizzers did in zelda where we crash the game and run our own code that'll be installed in the gc memcard?

    Um, guys, this just installs gamecube saves onto your memory card. Thats all.

    And that's the problem! It doesn't work for me. I did exactly what you say, it asked do you want to copy PK.gci To memory card A/B. I press 'A' and it starts copying, it chrashed and nothing happend!

    I hate to be offensive, though I swear the majority of people here are partially blind.
    http://wiibrew.org/wiki/Homebrew_apps/Gamecube_Saver

    Read the usage instructions there.
    The file must be placed under a folder named: gc_saves
    Not in the root of your SD card.

    Not so fast! The rar which should be in the downloadlink, contains a folder called gc_saves which is in the root of my SD card and contains the save! Just as I said! And the link works for me btw

    you have to rename it to .GCM not GCI it even says that on the app, unless thats my own custom XML file

    edit, you gamesave doesnt work either, i dont think its all there(as in it wasnt all downloaded)

    No it's not .GCM look at the link to Wiibrew posted earlier. I think it was a mistake in the XML file

    I'm sorry but I don't get what you said. Is my file not good or was your download corrupted?
