    I am simply wondering if it will ever be possible to boot
    gamecube ISO's on the usb loader, and no I'm not asking anyone to make one I just want to know if its there's something in the code that might prevent it or something.

    I've read that it will be supported in the future, so yes.

    wow I'm really glad to hear that since I have a bunch of GC ISO's on my pc but I suppose the GC backup launcher will have to do for now.

    also thanks for the quick reply got it in like 2 minutes.

    I could bet a lot of money that WiiGator is working with Waninkoko at this right now. Since the usb loader and gc launcher are already there, i think the most complicated part for this is how to store gc images in the filesystem. I guess it will be released within 2 weeks.

    Edit: See my later post

    I wonder how, since... well, once you get to a GC game, the USB ports are disabled. Or am I wrong?

    not really disabled, but they can't be accessed in gc mode. they have to extant mios with a complete usb stack.

    I see. So, it's doable, afterall.

    Yeah, I guess Gator & Wanin are probably going to work together again.

    Woops, i forgot about that little details. Seems i was a too optimistic. Maybe with BootMii Wiigator manages to get gc games to run in Wii mode and not shut down usb.

    I don't think they will ever run in Wii-mode. I don't think it's possible without an emulator. It's the same as GBA-games on a DS.

    People said it wasn't possible for the Wii to read DVD's, people said it wasn't possible to make a GC-loader, people said it was impossible to make a backup loader using USB2.0.
    The Wii-scene has done all of this, it would surprise me if they would not be able to make that USB-loader being abled to read GC ISO's too.

    I'm sure that

    USB -> Wii = Shut off USB, unless hardware modifications.

    imho, the only current sofmod way to go would be to load the shrunken GC iso to NAND, and use a modified version of wanins NAND loader, like in the hamster game.

    Note, I said current.

    I hope to be proved wrong soon, and given enough time we will soon have total control over the Wii and it's hardware (crosses fingers).

    Wiipower, I'd love to hear your thoughts on loading and launching from NAND. [​IMG] would it work ?
