    GC SD-BOOT v0.1

    Emukidid has released a great new homebrew for Gamecube and Wii Owners

    sd-boot v0.1 (BETA)

    A program which lets you run homebrew and legally created GC backups via SDgecko.

    Put .GCM files in a directory called GCGAMES on the root of your SD card.
    Boot up the .dol file however you want.
    Pop the SD card in slot B
    Select a file and enjoy

    - A Gamecube or a Wii
    and one or more of the following
    - PSO+BBA (for GC dudes)
    - Action Replay + SD CARD
    - SDML
    - Modchip

    There's alot to be fixed in this program, but this is a simple start.
    Hopefully after I get a larger SD card I will find fixes to problems reported about games.

    How it works (not so technical):
    Intercept a dvdread, turn it into a seek to sector 0 and read my data from sd card.

    Source is messy.. but yes it's included.
    There's bits and pieces borrowed from everywhere
    and I try to give credits where needed.

    Thanks to:
    gc-linux sd code for simple methods on how to use the sd gecko
    brakk3n for the backdrop
    everyone at tehskeen for the emulators and their sources
    libOGC devs for libOGC

    excellent work man! i have been waiting for something like this to come along for a longgggggg time!

    i didn't expect it to work, but i tried loading a couple games. i tried the legend of zelda: wind waker, and it looked like it was gonna boot, but it gave me some kind of "exception error!" with a bunch of code output.

    same thing happened when i tried to load mario kart: double dash!!

    i will try luigis mansion here in a second, but thanks for the release and i hope to see it workin with more games soon


    i am using the Datel SD Media Launcher, and i just tried luigis mansion....same error as the other 2. i'm not using the PAL version, i'm using the regular US version of your sd-boot program. the dol file boots up, i pick the gcm file, and here is the screen i'm getting, in case it helps any.

    (just a black screen with the following text)

    Exception (DSI) occured!

    Says to insert SDGecko into slot 2 or something. All I have is a Wiikey SD Memory Card adaptor + Action Replay. Is that sufficient? Am I doing something wrong?

    I think any SD adapter will work.

    However, I'm having issues using it. I have a MarioKart backup 480MB or so. It boots to "SD-Boot" screen, asks for me to insert the card in slot-B (which I do) and press A. Then it says something about initializing DVD (DVD drive spins up) and then it crashes to a black screen of death with a code such as the one posted above.
