    I’ve recently modded a GameCube with GC Loader and jumped at the chance to add an SD2SP2 adapter once I learned that one of the newer revisions of Swiss added virtual memory card support. So far the virtual memory cards have worked without issue but upon booting The NTSC-U version of Tales of Symphonia I cannot get it to read either virtual memory card slot no matter what I do.

    At first I thought it might be a matter of it not having a save file created on the memory card so I even went through the process of starting the game in Dolphin and transferring the save over but still no luck. I know Tales of Symphonia is a bit of a trouble game with Swiss but I’d still like to ask if anyone has any idea what could be causing the issue or maybe has dealt with something similar.

    Memory card emulation is disabled when disc read speed emulation is enabled.

    I actually don’t have disk read emulation enabled unless that’s something TOS does automatically on boot.

    It's enabled by default for that game. Check the game settings.

    That does make sense. I’m guessing there probably aren’t enough system resources that we’ll ever see a fix for running both disc speed emulation and a virtual memory card simultaneously? If so that’s kind of a bummer.

    There may be a fat hypervisor option at some point, but it'll have lower game compatibility.

    On the plus side the only game that I’m aware of that actually needs that needs disk speed emulation is Symphonia. Even with lowered compatibility for other games if it worked for ToS and and was an option that could be toggled on and off it wouldn’t end up negatively effecting overall performance moving forward. It could not work that way at all though for all I know. I’m not exactly privy to all of the technical details of how all of this works. I guess it’s just wishful thinking on my part.
