Seeing as both Wii64 and WiiSX were released a year ago and don't have very good USB support, I've recompiled them with the latest devkitPPC and libogc. USB support should be very much improved with these builds; I didn't change any of the actual code.

No, I don't think so; As I said I didn't change any of the code, but when the betas were first released then there wasn't very good USB support so recompiling them now increased compatibility because of the updates to libogc.

Sorry guy but it's useless if you don't use code to support IOS58 or CIOS202 in the file GamecubeMain.cpp

I made both IOS/CIOS USB2 mod when they release the 2.1 version. You could find it with the source at :

Wikitemp WiiSX beta 2.1

Maybe you could try recompiled it for IOS58, i didn't recompile it with latest libogc. Maybe it can improve speed a little but CIOS202 was faster when i made this mod. Maybe now, it's different.

It's not useless, I've only heard good things from the people who've tried it (because they had tried the official ones and it didn't work for them, but mine did). Also, I'm not a coder so that's why I didn't change anything. I could recompile yours too but I'm not sure if the difference would be that drastic.

What matguitaris is trying to tell you is, you have done something that is been there allready for a long time. Instead of doing the same, you better improve.

"Support for IOS58" doesn't need to be coded, it's part of libogc. Recompiling is all that is necessary. Speed tests have shown that it's roughly equal with the custom USB2 module, plus it uses an official IOS, supports both slots and hot-plugging. Is that "improvement" enough?

As I said before and what tueidj said, the fact that it's compiled with an updated libogc improves the already existing code.

Like I said, I didn't change any code so it runs games the same as the official builds. The only thing different is the improved USB support (like running from USB and loading ROMs/Saves from USB).

THANKS!
I was driving myself crazy trying to figure why wiisx & wii64 errored when accessing the usb drive. For some reason my wii addresses my usb drive in wii exlporer as usb1, thougth that was the problem but it didn't seem to affect my other emulators. I used the latest recompile and it fixed those issues. Now if I could just figure out how to load an iso in wiisx... My directory structure is correct and I load my .bin but when I go to play it freezes! any advice? thanks for recompiling.

I have had a chance to use these a little and have found that the new compile doesn't work with my forwarder wads for both 64 and SX.

I unistalled and reinstalled the wads and the .bin files but didn't make a difference. So I downloaded the .bin files from homebrew and they worked with my forwarder wads again. something definitly gliches with those .bin files and forwarder wads. But I like the USB support these files provide.

For the ISO (bin) loading problem, try getting the BIOS [SCPH1001.bin] and using that. Place it in SD:\wiisx\bios\ and then in WiiSX settings where it says "Boot through Bios" select "Yes". I'm not sure about the forwarders because I never use them..

What controller are you using?
Also, have you tried changing the configuration? Go into Settings and then Input and then Configure Buttons.

Sire,

I wonder if it is possible to add a FILTERING ON/OFF switch?
It could be wonderful to have the games running on sharp pixels!
That bilinear/blurry mode makes me feel like I need glasses!

Also, a 240p mode just like the SNES, NES, GEN and PCE emu could be AWESOME!

Thanks so much!
Best regards,
Cospefogo.
