emu_kidid has released the first beta of Swiss, successor to the Gamecube homebrew utility SDboot.
While Swiss is made for Gamecube, it can be booted from the HB channel on the Wii via WiiPowers forwarder .
You will need a SD Gecko, or an IDE-EXI to use this utility.
Swiss for Gamecube
- Load DOL from SD/SDHC/DVD-R/HDD
- Load GCM/ISO from Original Disc/SD/SDHC/DVD-R/HDD
- Multi-Game DVD-R support (Cobra/GCOS)
- Multi-Disc support Original Disc/SD/SDHC/DVD-R/HDD
- Disc Ripping to SD/SDHC/HDD (WIP)
- Region free / Video forcing (WIP)
- Full cheat engine for all games (update it via SD/SDHC)
*HDD features require a IDE-EXI or homemade adapter
**SD features require a SDGecko or homemade adapter
- 480P video mode forcing is Work in Progress - it may not work at all yet!
- Disc dumping is known to corrupt some HDD's - still work in progress!
Wii Swiss Booter
This program searches all storage for the swiss executable and then runs it in gamecube mode. It does require a cMIOS to do this like other gamecube homebrew booters. But this is modified to execute one command MIOS would execute and which is required to reset the drive. Short: Other gamecube homebrew booters may not allow the booted gamecube homebrew to reset the drive, this one does.
- No graphics output at all
- No errors or warnings, it will either work or not
- USB storage might not be working
I just downloaded it but my wife wants to watch TV for a while so I can't play for a bit.
Edit: There is potential. I got it to boot and somewhat work. The trick to get it working on the Wii for me was to insert a real GC disc in the drive. When I tried booting an ISO without a disk in it would tell me the tray was open. I put a Wii disc in the drive and it would load the ISO and freeze at 33% then give me an error. Next I tried a GC backup and it would also freeze at 33% and give me an error. Then for the hell of it I tried a blank DVD-R and it told me there was no disc in after thrashing around for a while. Finally I put a real CG mini disc in and it would allow me to boot ISOs from the SD Gecko. Winnie the Pooh's Rumbly Tumbly Adventure to be exact. I haven't played around much and have only tried two images. My initial findings...Lego Star Wars II: The Original Trilogy black screens and freezes requiring hard reboot. Blood Omen 2: Legacy of Kain booted to the create save game screen. My Gecko was in slot B and I didn't have a memory card in at first. When it said no memory card detected I told it to continue without saving...Black screen and hard reboot. I tried again with a memory card in slot A and my Gecko in B and got the same results. So there is definitely potential. At least I got a game to boot somewhat.
i cant get 0.2 to boot at all .............. when i launch it it reboots the wii. pretty sure my mios is right, i can boot gc disc backups through gators gc backup program and neo gamma. just for 'craps' and giggles i put 0.1 one for gamecube on my sd ard and launched it in gamecube mode and it loaded up but since im on wii and not gamecube...................., that was the end of it ................. just to clarify, this is supposed to be able to boot off the wii sd card slot, correct ??????? just checking, wasnt sure. i dont have the geko nor the ide addapter. bunt the way i under stood, was suposed to be able to load off of sd and eventualy, usb as well.
You need an SD Gecko W/ SD/SDHC or IDE-EXI adapter W/ IDE drive to store your games with Swiss. You wont be able to use your SD slot for anything other than storing the Swiss booter and the Swiss DOL if you choose. I don't believe there are plans to include the Wii's SD slot or USB ports seeing as how it is being developed for the Gamecube. I don't think the Wii's USB ports or SD slot will ever be functional with Swiss also. We have to boot the Wii in GC mode to run Swiss which kills the USB ports and SD slot. Buy a Gecko at the minimum if you want to play with Swiss. They are cheap. You could buy a knock off Chinese Gecko for like $3 USD with free shipping from some website.
It sounds like you are using it incorrectly to. It is a two part program. You need to use the booter to launch your Wii in GC mode and load Swiss and then there is Swiss itself. When you put what you call 0.2 on your card and it rebooted that's what happens if you use the booter without Swiss. What you call 0.1 for the Gamecube is actually Swiss. You have to rename Swiss swiss.dol and use the booter to put you in GC mode and fire Swiss up. If you had read the readme files that came with the downloads you would have known that. If you want to see proper use with more info and links look at the Swiss guide in my sig.
dont mean to reopen such an old thread .......... but looked like as good of a place as any to ask this, without opening a new one up. decided to try out swiss again, downloaded the latest version, every things working great, cept one problem. resident evil 4. its a 2 disc game, when it tells me to insert disc 2, i eject the disc i have in the wii and stick it back in, and the scren just goes black and does nothing, for ever. i have the iso files names [ re4-disc1 & re4-disc2 ] this is the way every thing i read on line said to name your game files on the sd card. so i guess question is, am i doing somthing wrong, or is this a problem with re4 on swiss ? ive tried every thing i can think of. plz help.
