    SNES I have great news. I was about to take it all apart, but I didn't have the screw driver needed (I had misplaced my special head set). Anyways I plug it back in to let someone listen to the sound, and it was gone! Aparently moving it around set something back in place and now it works perfectly! Silent and no sound coming from it at all. I'm about to get Devolution working

    Edit: Spoke too soon

    You're lucky, I flipped and positioned mine every conceivable way and the sound never went away. I had to spend $60 getting the drive replaced (didn't want the hassle of trying myself).

    I spoke too soon. Looks like an Ebay replacement will be coming :/ I might just buy the Wii U.

    Err... you still need a Wii with a working disc drive in order to use Devolution on a Wii U...you know that, right?

    Anyway, two things. First, I can confirm that you can indeed find out the GameID via the Dolphin emulator, and quite easily too. First in Dolphin you have to browse for the folder that includes your ISO/s. Ones the games are on Dolphin's game list, right click on a game and select "Properties". In the new window, go to the tab labeled "Info". It'll list the GameID and other information.

    Secondly, Y U NO have a link to GCPadder, the utility I linked you to months ago that lets you expand the size of your memory card dumps?

    Sorry, haven't gotten around to adding that yet :P

    Also, you can see part of a games ID a couple other ways that only require your own eyes and the game disc/box

    Here's a pic using Pokemon Colosseum to show: First, look at the discs front and you can see near the bottom:

    image-2973933051.jpg

    You can see DL-DOL-GC6E-USA.
    DL-DOL is for Dolphin, the GameCube's code name, GC6E is the first 4 characters of the games ID and USA is of course the region.

    You can also find similar info on the back of the case above the bar code and on the back of the disc as well

    Edit: GCpadder is quite useful! Expands the card without losing the save data :O Expect a write up for it to be added soon, thanks NintendoManiac64

    Argh, I stayed up all night trying to get the latest version of Devolution to work. No luck.

    I've tried running it via CFG Loader and via the Basic Loader, but either way, Devolution can't see any of the ISOs I've ripped via CFG Loader.

    I tried renaming game.iso to gameID.iso, that didn't work. Just made the iso not show up in CFG Loader.

    I tried ripping a GC game to a 2GB Sandisk SD card. Devolution couldn't see it either.

    I'm out of ideas. Here's my sysCheck:

    Spoiler



    Thanks for any advice. I hope there's something I've overlooked - I'm really hoping that my 1TB WD external hard drive is compatible. It seems to play Wii games via CFG just fine. Wii64 can't seem to read the ROM folder, though...

    One more thing: My 1TB HDD is formatted FAT32, Allocation Unit Size 32768. I guess cluster size is 32; a 1-character text document is 32kb, IIRC. I used FAT 32 GUI Formatter, with quick format.

    Devolution won't read SD stored games, so that didn't help.

    I believe the "game.iso" name is what Devolution needs, like like Dios Mios.

    It is possible that the hard drive may not be compatible with Dev/DM. Do you have a smaller USB device (flash drive?) that you can try to see if it works any different?

    Your syscheck is a bit off compared to how we like to see it.

    You have HBC 1.1.2 instead of 1.1.0. We don't recommend Wii users going past 1.1.0 as all updates past that are to get HBC working with Wii U's vWii.

    You are also missing a number of d2x cIOSs.

    I don't know which cIOSs devolution uses, so that may be a problem as well.

    You might want to find the 1.1.2 installer that you used and use it to uninstall HBC and bootmii. Then use our Softmod Any Wii guide to reinstall the recommended version and then go on to install the contents of ModPack.zip to get all of the d2x's installed.

    Devolution actually can load games from SD cards, I've set up my friends Wii to do so, I just haven't detailed that in the guide as 1) SD cards are far too small for most people who want to play their GC games, and 2) USB drives give you more space for the money.

    Anyway, the directions for SD loading are fairly similar to USB loading and if there is enough interest maybe I'll add it to the guide.

    As for SmashBro lets see if I can't answer these issues.

    1) for the basic loader the games must be stored in USB/games. No subfolders. You can name the ISOs what ever you want them to be, GameID and game.iso are not required by the basic loader. Teudj himself has posted here and let us know that CFG Loader is buggy and is known to cause issues so you may want to try WiiFlow or USB Loader GX. Make sure you follow the directions on page 1.

    2) Make sure your GameCube SD path is set to whatever folder the game ISOs are in. If they're not in the right place they won't show up.

    Your SysCheck isn't up to WiiHacks standards (it's missing some cIOS) but it it should be good enough to play Devolution. I still recommend using our Softmod ANY Wii guide (link in signature) to get a perfect WiiHacks Softmod.

    3) GameCube games and Wii games have different compatibility so just because a drive plays Wii games doesn't mean it will play GC games. Best I can recommend for this is to try a different USB device and follow the guide with that to see if it works.

    4) Try reformatting the drive but this time use normal formatting not quick formatting. Also make sure you have 32kb cluster size and that the drive is primary and active.

    Devolution doesn't require anything other than system menu 4.x and IOS 58. Please don't go recommending people to install cIOS when it won't do diddly-squat for Devolution.

    As for using an SD card, it's useful for one specific reason - the Wii U won't ask to format your SD card, so you can use it for all your Wii homebrew needs on a Wii U console and leave any USB drives for the Wii U. (there's a user on GBATemp that uses a 128GB SDXC card on his Wii U for this exact reason)

    I'm aware (hence my having said "your mod should still be good enough to run Devolution"), but the various USB Loaders do require cIOSs. So it may help his issue to have a good softmod. It's never a bad idea to have the system mod done right but if all other aspects of the mod are working he doesn't need to use our ANY Wii guide of he doesn't want/think he needs to.

    Regarding SD cards, yes, that is useful for users with Wii U. SD cards also don't require external power which is another plus in my book, but as he didn't say Wii U I assume he's using an original Wii in which case I personally find it better to use a USB hard drive.
