    Well a friend of mine found this site...

    my head just keeps saying its a lie, but i dont have a 2gb SD card, nor do i want one to test a little thing some kid might have done...

    Looks fake as all get out.

    Opened zeldaboot.bin, which can be dled off this page, in notepad.

    _code (renew);
    _hardboot (wii://directory/boot/"NULL"boot.bin)
    _exe softreset


    _display (Boot Loader loading..)

    Is what it contains.

    Yeah, and it's strange that there are boots file for all the game but Red Steel... Is it a case that it's the only public dumped game that anyone can try to load?

    It just doesn't make any sense. It says to put the iso on the 2 gb sd, but the only iso available

    1. Is 4.3 GB
    2. Doesn't have a boot.bin on the site

    Also the dude doesn't give any instructions on how to load the game. No where in there does it say "Put the SD card in the Wii" or anything.

    Sure we can, say its fake. The only dumped game is Red Steel, which happens to be a game they don't have. He has already claimed support with other games, which haven't been dumped yet. Obviously fake.

    Edit: Also, I'd be much happier if a way to boot Gamecube ISO's from disc was discovered first, I have a bunch of Gamecube games I've never beaten that I'd love to see in 480p on the Wii.

    all the gameboot.bins look the same to me
    it's possible it's real if the said games are only 2gb but no one knows

    probably fake though

    Hmm. :\

    The boot files for each of the games are identical. Plus, there are no Wii iso's under 2 GB.

    Fake.

    That should have been an easy tip that this was fake. [​IMG]
