Well it seems something usefull has finally come out of the PSO v2 hack. For those of you just tuning in, this was a hack devised a few months ago which would allow you to hook your gamecube to your PC and stream very limited amounts of data (about 4MB to the GC's RAM) via the broadband adapter and an exploit for PSOv2. Over time, an improved version that could load 14MB of data came out and homebrewers starting making rudimentary games/tech demos.

Fast foward to today. Eurasia has released a loader which takes further advantage of the PSO hack to the extent that Animal Crossing can now be played flawlessly. Other games support the same loader but with minor errors (FMV skips, loading times ranging from non-existent in some games, to 2+ minutes long in others).

Within a few months you'll be seeing modchips that will allow you to play the games hassle free,
------------------------------

A new beta of the loader was released, it now STREAMS other games from pc to bba aswell, currently 100% supported is luigi and animal crossing, luigi gives you longer loading times, but runs fine.

Other Games are partly supported but have errors!
--------------------------

So much for not being able to warez GC Games,

The fallowing GC games have been released by warez groups:

Animal_Crossing_Loader_1.1_NGC_INTERNAL_BETA-EURASIA

Phantasy_Star_Online_1_And_2_PAL_GC-RARE

Disneys_Magical_Mirror_Starring_Mickey_Mouse_PAL_GC-RARE

Skies_of_Arcadia_Legends_PAL_GC-RARE

Zelda_Ocarina_Of_Time_PAL_GC-RARE

Nhl_Hitz_20-02_PAL_GC-RARE

2002_FIFA_World_Cup_PAL_GC-RARE

Evolution_Worlds_PAL_GC-RARE

I will be updating this thread with links to software and all other files allowed here at UGN Security, new software is being developed daily.

Alright, could somebody tell me what's so great about this? You can hook it up to your PC and play the games...is that it? I don't really see the point. It's not like the playstation mod chips where you can play pirated games and stuff. Is it just like if you have a kick ass PC, then you can play it with the better graphics and everything?

So long as this is only the info and emulator news it's fine, so long as warez isn't shown then fine, second it is, i'm taking you out back the barn and caping you in the head...

Thanx Gizmo, I know the rules,

Judging from pergus's post I have to clerify what this is.
An exploit in PSO 2 for the gamecube allows you to send data into the gamecubes ram, theres no emulation anywhere.
People can now download warez copies of GC games from the net, then connecting the GC to the computer allows the Gamecube to play a game off the pc's harddrive instead of the optical drive in the gamecube.

So in turn allows you to play GC games on your gamecube the exact same as if the actual game was in the GC. And since data is read off of the pc's harddrive instead of the GC's optical drive the load times will be much shorter once the bugs are worked out of the programs.

Oh, and you can still save your games to the GC's memory card etc. once the game is started theres no difference in any way than if the actual game was in the gamecube, except faster load times.

Heh, this doesn't void the gamecubes warranty...

Sounds interesting. I am just curious as to where and when the information comes into the Gamecube. Seems odd to just be able to stream information into the port and load up a game.

I didn't have any more luck finding info about PSO v2. Just got results for Phantasy Star Online

Ok. I didn't see the loader, so you need a special loader I assume for games in general or the game. it doesn't make sense that you could send the data and the GC would load whatever was streamed through the port.

You guys are missing the entire point behind this discovery. Not only can you stream the games from your PC to the GC, but GC homebrew has finally begun! This means that all us Homebrew guys that have been dinking around with the GBA can finally get some code loaded into the GC for testing instead of this emulation stuff.

check out thepernproject.com for gc/gba dev tools and tutorials.

- Super_Monkey_Ball_USA_GC-RARE
- Super_Monkey_Ball_2_USA_GC-RARE
- Wave_Race_Blue_Storm_USA_GC-RARE


At the time, the games are being shared via irc, though you can expect warez bittorent sites to catch up within the faoowing weeks.

I'm not sure if the loader program that allows you to play the GC backups on your GameCube is warez or not, I dont know if it contains any copyrighted code or not. will post when confirmation is recieved that its kosher.

OK chem and everyone else. Lets talk more about the technical aspects and the homebrewing and move away from the warezed ROMs, so this topic doesn't have to be closed.

Ok, here comes the info on how this works.
With a copy of Phantasy Star Online & the Broadband adapter, it is possible to play backups of games in conjunction with your PC.

Since Phantasy Star online is an online game, its set to listen to the Broadband adapter for instructions etc from the PSO servers.

By connecting the adapter to your computer and using a program called "The Euroasia Loader" your computer will interpret commands from the Gamecube and using an exploit in the PSO game can send data directly into the ram. The Euroasia loader then plops a little program in the ram that tells the gamecube not to read data off the optical drive, but to read it off the broadband adapter instead. So the GameCube requests all its data off the broadband adapter, and thus off the computer. The computer running the euroasia loader can interpret these commands and sends the requested data via a copy of a game ISO on the hard drive.
Its just that simple.

Heres the .nfo file of the euroasia loader:

Code:
.       .                                                           .       .

|     When using on GCMs that use excessive BBA streaming, memory card      | 
|     access may be less reliable or cause a hang.  This does not apply to  | 
|     any version of Animal Crossing or games like Luigis Mansion because   | 
|     streaming from BBA does not occur every second.                       | 
|                                                                           | 
|     Games like F-Zero, that stream every second, you may want to remove   | 
|     the memory card completely to stop possible hanging when it is        | 
|     accessed.                                                             |

|     Despite the save limitations of some games you may still enjoy them   |

|       to fill with dots. The TV screen should go from loading, black,     | 
|       Red Nintendo Logo, black screen, sound, title screen, music.        | 
|                                                                           | 
|       On some sytems the entire game will load in 1 minute, on other      | 
|       systems this process may take several minutes! Please be patient,   | 
|       As long as dots are filling the DOS screen then Animal Crossing     | 
|       is loading.                                                         |

|       If you are having problems with hanging, or the console is filling  | 
|       up with X's and transfer rate is very slow, try using the delay     | 
|       switch to slow down transfer rate from PC.                          | 
|                                                                           | 
|       Delay usage:    eur-acl1.exe eur-acgc.gcm -d10 -f16                 | 
|                                                                           | 
|       Delays for 10ms every 16 packets.                                   | 
|                                                                           | 
|       If no -f switch is given the frequency of delay will default to     | 
|       every one packet which is far slower and perhaps no more reliable   | 
|       that a given frequency value.  Experiment to find the optimum       | 
|       settings for your system if you are having long loading times.      | 
|                                                                           |

This is really awesome news, actually. I can't wait for some homebrew games to start coming out, even though I don't have GC and don't plan on getting one :x I expect more shit like this to happen as computer and consoles start becoming more integrated. Very cool! Despite the fact that I hate warez *mostly* , I got much love for the people who did this. Great work! W0rd
