DIOS-MIOS lite - play GC backups from SD card
« on: January 22, 2012, 11:16:38 PM »
There has been a guide posted at GBA temp about playing GC ISOs from SD card. The only thing you need to do is install as specially patched cMIOS, convert the ISO to work with the cMIOS, and use the latest version of NeoGamma (or post loader) to boot the game. This may be good for Wii's that cannot read burned DVD media, but installing the DML compatible cMIOS might render backup DVD media unreadable with Wii's that can read GC backup DVDs.

Awesome, thanks for the news! It's amazing how far we've come. They used to say that it was impossible to load GameCube games off an SD card. I of course knew impossible meant "it would take a while."

this sounds interesting for playing GC games from SD,
but since I'm using wiikey fusion (which has better compatablty)

is the compatably of DIOS-MIOS lite the same as wiikey fusion or different?

but one flaw that DIOS MIOS has,

- can't boot games from SD without the need of a disk in wii's drive in order to run.

Wiikey fusion has this advantage over DIOS MIOS:

- can run games from SD without disk in drive, only some drive models can boot from SD and DVD, but not all.

here:

Compatible with DMS, D2A, D2B, D2C, D2C-2, D2E, D3, D3-2* and D4* drive chipsets
Compatible with all regions: USA, JAP, PAL and KOREA
Completely solderless, plug-and-play installation
No 'soft mod' required
WBFS Support
Supports the latest BCA protection found in New Super Mario Brothers, as well as other as of yet unused Wii disc specific protections
Softcore and onboard flash fully updatable from SD card
FPGA fully updatable from SD card via JTAG *****
GUI for configuration and multigame selection
Configurable update blocker
Supports loading games from SDHC, SD, and MicroSD cards
Region override for Wii and Gamecube games ***
Direct Boot of Wii original, import, and backup games
Direct Boot of Gamecube original, import, and backup games
Direct boot of homebrew in GC mode
Supports multi-disc games, Dual Layer games, and multigame SD cards ****
Supports NSMB, SMG, SSBB, and other 'problem' titles
Supports audiostreaming GC games **
Recovery mode makes it possible to recover from a bad flash or corrupt data in flash
16Mbit onboard flash for storing data and applications
GPIO pads for future extensions
Rock solid performance Actel FPGA and high quality components
Onboard status LEDs

* Only SD features will work on D3-2 and D4 systems, not DVD.
** Audiostreaming games can be played in silence.
*** This feature is not available on Wiis with System Menu v4.2 or above.
**** Multigame SD functionality is currently not available for Korean Wiis.
***** Requires programmer sold separately

that's wiikey.

it can't run properly on 4.2v and above, needs to be 4.1v or below.

can DIOS MIOS run on 4.2v?

I think I heard something about kenobigc.bin that you have to have on your emulated nand...

It adds the code handler in, but I'm not 100% sure whether it'd allow you to use the USB Gecko. (It theoretically should)
If my Mediafire links aren't working, (they aren't) don't PM me about it.

See my current master download list.

from wiikey slot directly? no,

but with swiss.iso yes
you need the sd card in the wiikey sd card adapter sold, but if you have the swiss.iso in your wiikey sd card you can load swiss from there and then have usbgecko with an sd with gcgames on it in slot A or B and boot your games from usbgecko in swiss.iso.

We're not discussing Swiss here, we're discussing DIOS MIOS lite. CosmoCortney is asking if you can run the USB Gecko through DML. Also, I was fairly certain you could NOT use the USB gecko through Swiss.
If my Mediafire links aren't working, (they aren't) don't PM me about it.
