    The Wii has two main memory regions MEM1(24MB) and MEM2(64MB) the GC had MEM1(24MB) and ARAM(I think 16MB I can't find the value right now).
    Now as we know some facts we see that the Wii has no ARAM, but GC needs it to work!
    So when switching to GC mode a part of MEM2 is used as ARAM(the infamous twiizer attack was possible due this fact).
    So why is this a problem? once it's turned into ARAM it's not accessible from ARM( aka starlet, aka IOS) anymore, why is that bad? well the EHCI(aka USB2.0) device can only access MEM2 so no MEM2 no EHCI and no USB.

    wow just know if you ever start donations again depending on the donation goal i would just donate in full if not pretty close just to see work improvements and or releases on this wonderful attempt at a great peice of work and the people that say this is useless are you kidding me put
    put aside that the wii games even exists for the wii and think of the wii as a what it really is htat its just a overclocked gamecube and added some
    new features man this still is freaking awsome and when you say unmodified image are you reffering to bin dumps or converts to isos for gamecube my backups pfcourse

    +rep thanx if thats how you do it

    I find it suprising that his main concern for not releasing it is piracy, as I can't imagine that gamecube game sales are all that happening. it's far from abandonware to be sure, but I've got a stack of actual gamecube games that would simply love an app based on dios mios.

    I second that. Most of my GC games (originals) give random disk read errors when playing them so It would be nice to be able to backup my games and play from USB. That is the main reason I am interested in this... because I have quite a few GC Games.
    Damn I suck!!!!

    even though ninty doesnt loose money on it, the copyright is still there.
