    I have downloaded the Project M demo and it says to install the files to the SD card. So I do that. Then it tells me to go the Stage builder, and then Gecko will automatically show up and launch the game. This didn't work, and I am beginning to suspect that it is because my SSBB copy is digital (.iso). But I've heard that other people are launching Project M just fine from Hard Drives. Are they wrong? Will it work? If not, is there anyway I can make it work without having to buy a copy of Brawl?

    I will try it out now if you really need a original copy.

    I play from CFG USB Loader and it works fine. Make sure your HDD is formatted to NTFS or it most likely won't work (I couldn't get it working with FAT32 or WBFS, just hung on "Now Loading" screen).


    Just copy the codes to the SD and enable the Ocarina Cheats in CFG USB Loader.

    You'll know it is activated when you see Captain Falcon instead of the Wrist strap warning (which, by the way, is USELESS of Brawl lol).


    Note I also have a burned copy and it works through Neogamma as well.


    HUH. I noticed they removed the original releases of the demo. I don't know if these new DLs work. There used to be several version depending on your loading method.

    If it won't work I can upload my .zip to FileTrip (confirmed working with CFG) for you.

    @ FIX94: They say for PAL users contact them via IRC to get help. I dunno what the difference is with the codes for NTSC and PAL so I can't help you... [​IMG]


    Yep. it seems the new version they have up... ONLY works through the legit disc, or through Neogamma via burned disc. it won't work by USB.

    I couldn't find my .zip, so I am compiling my own and uploading it now for you. I hope it'll work (it works fine for me).


    Also, FIX94, try just changing the game ID to PAL and it should work, apparently.

    I tried it out and it froze at the loading screen. I now contacted them on IRC, I hope somebody will answer.

    Give my version a shot when I upload it. [​IMG]

    Like I said, they used to have "Homebrew version" as an option to download but it seems this new one does not allow you to run it through Neogamma OR CFG.

    My version (the ORIGINAL Homebrew version they removed) just needs to be copied to the SD, and have Ocarina cheats enabled and it works just like that.

    EDIT: http://filetrip.net/f24892-Project-M-Demov...USB%29-1-0.html

    enjoy.

    I asked in IRC and they said it's not possible to play from PAL disc... I will simply wait for the final, this will be for pal for sure.

    Their download just includes smash stack and gecko os with the file patch code. You can load it with any method you want, just don't put smash stack on your sd card.

    I thought the same thing when I loaded it, but It wouldn't work when I tried it, though. [​IMG]

    It worked fine for me, I didn't do much testing though, what happened when you tried?
