    I wanna play Gamecube backups!! How???

    My wii is version 3.4E, I have HBC and am running cIOS36_rev10
    I have usb loader 1.1 and scummvm running great but now I want to try a back up loader,
    One that is able to load back up gamecube games also. I have looked into it and found Backup loader 0.3 gamma. Does it support game cube backups? And what cIOS do I need to install to use it?

    (maybe an idiots guide would be nice)

    I have found similar issues on other threads but am still confused

    What is cIOS 249 and would i need to install it? if so will it interfere with the mods i already have running OK on my wii?

    Plus what is cIOSCORP v3.3 and would that be my best option?

    Please help.

    You could use the launcher that karrrade gave you are use NeoGamma R7 which launches both wii and gc games but like how wii backups need a cIOS, Gamecube Backups need a cMIOS just google cMIOS-rev3 Installer.

    Thanks Karrade, i have dowloaded and extracted it and found the folders named "miospatcher" and "rungcbackup" Do i place these in the apps folder on my sd card and run them through HBC? or do i use one of the many other folders i also found in there? There doesnt appear to be a guide on how to use these apps?

    Please help with info and advise before i attemp this. I really dont want to destroy my wii after spending so long getting everything else to work so well.

    Also thanks to shadowsonic2 but im unformiliar with NeoGamma R7. is it just a beta still or is there a actual working version out? I'd rather not risk using it as i have not really looked into it yet.

    It works fine and is even more updates than all backup launchers and has better configurations and fixes for games that dont work.

    couldnt tell you where to put the files i dont use the gamecube section of the wii. but any question im sure can be awnsered in that thread i posted or it may have already been added i suggest reading through the whole thread at least before doing anything so you have less of a chance bricking.
    just found this::
    First of all, here is the [obligatory] disclaimer:
    ONLY DO THIS IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING. WHILE THIS APPLICATION IS DESIGNED TO BE SAFE, PLEASE AT LEAST DO RESEARCH BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO INSTALL THIS.

    This is a tutorial to install WiiGator's Launcher.

    Topics discussed:
    - Brief FAQ
    - Tutorial: WiiGator cMIOS
    - More FAQ

    Brief FAQ

    What is this application?
    This application, GameCube Backup Launcher .1 Theta, is a program designed to launch backup GameCube games on your Wii without the need of a modchip.

    What do I need?
    A hombrew-ready Wii. For a helpful start, try here- The Homebrew Starter Guide.

    Is there anything else that you reccomend having?
    Absolutely! I want this process to be as safe as possible, for everybody.
    First of all, I highly reccomend SoftMii and PreLoader. The application of this to the Backup Launcher will be discussed in the comments section, but Preloader and the Starfall Hacks will help solidify your ability to semi-brick-proof your precious Nintendo.

    Alright, but I already have Starfall installed.
    Well, that's no problem- follow this guide to get onto a virgin 3.2 U firmware!

    Aw, I'm on 3.3... dry.gif
    Well, that's no problem either- try the same guide from three posts above!

    And what about 3.4?
    Follow the same process, but Google Twilight Hack beta 02.

    So, where can I find out how to install SoftMii?
    Right Here! Experienced Tempers should know where to find the download link.

    Thanks!
    You're Welcome!

    Tutorial: WiiGator cMIOS
    First of all: You can't have a WiiGator tutorial without links!
    http://www.megaupload.com/?d=N6946KPF - cMIOS Package
    http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=4757 - A Gracious GBATemp Download Hosting!

    First, extract the .rar file to the location of your choosing. (I use WinRar).
    Then, open the gcbackup file you get (I am not sure what opens this, my computer just does).
    You will get a gcbackup0.1 folder.
    Open it.
    IGNORE ALL THE FILES EXCEPT FOR THE TGZ FOLDER (It may be in WinRar folder-format, aka a zipped folder).
    Open this file.
    Open the folder gcbackup0.1_theta.
    Inside, you will find two folders:
    - miospatcher
    - rungcbackup
    Copy BOTH of these folders to the apps folder in your SD Card.
    The next steps will take place on your Wii.
    Boot up the Homebrew Channel.
    If you do NOT have the latest cIOS 36 (or IOS 249), you NEED to install it.
    After this is done, boot up MIOS Patcher. MAKE SURE YOU HAVE YOUR GAMECUBE CONTROLLER PLUGGED IN BEFORE YOU BOOT UP.
    ****You need Internet Connection here. Scroll down to More FAQ if you do not****
    When the program boots up, press X on the GameCube controller once. Watch the green text on the screen, it should change to be longer.
    When you have done this, press A and let the install process go.
    That's it! Boot up Run GC Backups in the Homebrew Channel and play your backups!

    More FAQ
    There is some small text in the bottom of the screen when I boot the Backup Launcher. What does this mean?
    This lets you change the video mode.
    Pressing buttons on the GC controller changes the video output mode.
    X = PAL
    L = PAL60
    Y = NTSC
    B = 480p
    A = AutoDetect
    B= Patched mIOS (Generally works well for most)
    START = Reloader (slow) (Solves issues for some people).
    Be sure to try every option before reporting that a game is not working.

    I have a MultiGame disc- How do I change the game?
    Press left/right on the d-pad.

    How does SoftMii help me here?
    It will let you boot the GameCube games from the disc channel- cleaner, cooler, easier, and that much closer to a modchip.

    [Name of Game] does not work!
    Compatibility List. Always check here to see how people get games working, which games are working, and which games aren't working.

    The sound plays but the video does not... what am I doing wrong?
    Probably nothing. It could be a bad burn, but this is most likely a regional error. Again, check the compatibility list. The most common example I've heard of is mismatching regions with Luigi's Mansion.

    My game won't save/load!
    Nobody knows what causes this. It is reccomended to have different memory cards for different regions (they're cheap now anyways, just bought one for ten dollars).

    I don't have internet!
    You will need RVL-mios-v8.wad. Put it in the root of your SD card before you install.

    Happy Hacking!

    Help still no luck!

    Found the cMIOS_rev3-Installer, put it in a folder and renamed it to boot.dol. called the folder cMIOS installer and put that in my apps folder on the sd card, Put RVL-mios-v8.wad on the root of sd card as i have no internet connection on wii, and installed that ok.
    Loaded up Gamecube backup launcher but the picture just freezes with a double and fuzzy backup launcher screen. when i try to start my game using both the A button and the X button, also the B button (which just restarts the wii)

    I also tried loading the backed up gc gamed with the backup launcher 0.3 gamma but can't install the cMIOS patcher as i don't have the internet on my wii and it wont install from a wad.

    What am i doing wrong? So many ppl have it working ok but i just cant seem to do it.
    Is my wii being picky?

    I used a DVD-R and burned the game at a slow speed of x2.5.

    GGRRRRRRR please help.
