I've got several titles to launch but none to run yet. I think a lot of that has to do with the fact that I couldn't use the pre-patcher in Linux. I installed VirtualBox running Vista so I could have access to Windows. I've actually pre-patched a few images and I'm in the mood to test so I'll report back in a couple of hours...hopefully with better results than my initial findings.
Edit: I've regained control of the TV and I am currently putting patched versions of Alien Hominid and Hitman 2 on my Gecko's SDHC. I will report back soon. Hopefully I can get something to work before bed so I can update my guide tomorrow.
Alien Hominid froze at the same point. Hitman 2 actually booted into the start of the game intro and froze. That's the farthest I've had a game load thus far. There was a weird audio issue though. I need to play with it longer and update my guide a bit. Maybe I'll dedicate tomorrow or my birthday the day after to just playing with Swiss. Trying the new WiiPower cMIOS that Stomp pointed me to based on MIOS v10 and stuff like that.
This is great, an alternative to Wii's that cannot play backup discs. I wish I had a gecko so I could do some of this.
