    I'm a newbie to Nintendont and finally got some games to work, but I'm curious to what happens when its a two disc game? Am I just SOL on those kinds of games? Does it read the disk 2 data from the usb stick I have it on?
    Thanks in advance for the answers!

    What do you mean? I have Metal Gear Solid the Twin Snakes (Disc 1).iso and I also have a seperate iso named Metal Gear Solid the Twin Snakes (Disc 2).iso
    How would I do the disc switch mid game like that?

    That isn't answering my question at all. I have seperate Iso's for each disk. If I'm playing Disc 1 and it tells me to switch discs how would I "swtich" the disks?

    He did answer your question, albeit maybe not very thoroughly. For two disc games you should put them on a separate folder inside your "games" directory and name the 1st disc "game.iso" and the 2nd disc file as "disc2.iso". And yes, literally "game.iso" and "disc2.iso", not the name of your game, but the word "game" and "disc2". Then Nintendont will switch discs automatically when the game asks you to.

    Hokay, its been a hot minute, but I tried it your way and it recognized the games, however they wont open.It reboots to the homebrew channel. I tried putting a .game before .iso as i have withthe other games i have (they all work) but they simply dissapeared from nintendont when I did that. So I'm confused, cause I put the game in a seperate folder and named them Game.iso and Disc2.iso. Both games that were in this format didn't work.
    Will update in the morning with exactly what nintendont says the problem is, if you guys already have an answer though that would be chill.
    Thanks.

    Attatched is the files and how i names them maybe that is the problem?

    putting a period in the front of a filename is akin to hiding it. don't put a period on the front.

    Missing the Game ID in brackets in the directory name, which most loaders require for Nintendont games, I think.

    I didn't notice that, but that's a good point. it's actually the serial number, not title id. it comes from the four alphanumerics of the product code + the last two of the company code. I'm not sure how you find it on the cube, but on the wii u, you can find it in the meta.xml.

    Sorry, you're right. They're referred to as GameID/Game ID, not title ID.

    yeah, you can get it from here on the wii u: upload_2020-9-7_23-50-39.png

    title id is in there too. that's what the system uses, but system config tool uses the product code for saves at least.

    So the Game ID [GGSEA4] (according to GameTDB) would go on the folder name?
