This is actually really cool. It allows you to finally play Gamecube games via an iso / external hard drive. It lets you insert games (you already own) and then rip it straight to a hard drive using
USB GX launder. http://usbloadergx.k....net/downloads.

So now you can rip all of the Gamecube games you already own and rip them to an external hard drive and play direct from there. Gone are the long loading times. DIOS MIOS actually replaces the gamecube loading module on the wii, which by default didn't have any support for USB. Installing DIOS MIOS prevent you from playing retail mini DVD's but what you gain is so much greater.

really cool. I cant remember any must place gamecube games so this doesnt really apply to me. I love that the community is still working on emulation on the Wii.

Whoah. I used to follow the Wii Homebrew scene quite a bit and I remember them saying that playing GCN games off of a USB HDD was impossible. Nice progress.

If I had to play a GCN or Wii game though, it would definitely be on a PC emulator. The ability to play in HD is really cool.

Eternal Darkness is the best horror game I have played. The atmosphere is great.

Eternal Darkness alone makes this homebrew worth installing.
