    Yup! Can confirm, it works! I put the emulator and 643 roms on a DVD and using the GC Boot Disc GUI and it works. I played about 30 games off of the DVD no problems (even the famous Zero Wing)..

    Very nice.. This is exactly what I hope for with NES, SNES, N64, and GBA emulators: pop in a DVD and have the emulator boot and go right into being able to load roms from the DVD itself.

    Awesome, thanks for that heads up!

    I can't confirm this yet, but there is only save state support, and each state takes 19 gc memory blocks. Most Genesis games didn't require saving anyway so it's cool with me [​IMG]

    Interesting... but no offense... Genesis was a pretty alright system and had some decent games, I'm looking more towards wanting SNES since it had a MUCH LARGER selection of great games. [​IMG]

    Does this support 4.7gig size disks or can you only fill up 1.5gigs?

    It guess it supports up to 4.7G, but: the boot disc creater will only make a 1.5G ISO.. Even so, ALL of the Genesis games (about 650 of them) are only 764 megs.. So you'll be padding the rest of the disc for the ISO..

    I suppose it's too hard to read the original post.

    I burned a test disc with a cuppy games and it works with Wiinja V2. Direct Boot. It runs perfectly, I just wish I had a GC pad with a bigger D pad.

    Im wondering if the flashing black bar on my screen is because its a pal console as the Americans are reporting it working fine....

    Anyone tested it on a pal console too yet?
