[Tutorial] GCMUtility multi-boot iso games and how to burn them
« on: Sunday October 10, 2010, 12:18:41 PM »
WII ONLY!
So, this is a tutorial how to use GCMUtility to make Multi-boot games and how to burn it multi-boot.iso
Hope it helps you guys out.

Download and extract GCMUtility in a empty map.
http://wiki.gbatemp.net/w/images/b/b6/GCMUtility0.5.zip
Open GCMUtility 0.5.


Click on ‘’Add ISO’’ and add your games to GCMUtility.



I’m going to make a mutli-boot Legend of Zelda The Wind Waker and Four Swords Adventures.
I just gonna add two games. (if you want you can add more games)
After you add your games the ‘’Shrink’’ option will be enable select one game at the time and click on ‘’shrink’'.(shrink all your games you wan't to mutli-boot)
Give the new shrink file a name and location to save it.


The shrinkin process will take a couple of seconds.


After you ‘’Shrink’’ your games you need to select all of them and click on the ‘’Generate Multiboot ISO’’ option and gif it a name and location to save the new Multi-boot game.


OPTIONAL
When that’s done you need to burn your files to a DVD to play it
Download and install ImgBurn
http://download.imgburn.com/SetupImgBurn_2.5.2.0.exe

Open ImgBurn  and select ‘’Write image file to disc’’



Use always a DVD-R to burn Wii and GameCube games for the Wii!!
Now select your Multi-booted shrunken file


Test mode: off
Verify: off (this wil ruin your game)
Burn speed:  1x (recomended)
DVD: DVD-R

Now you can burn your Multi-boot game.


Feel free to leave tips and be sure to tell me any flaws in the tutorial.

Verify doesn't ruin your game. It checks if it's fully readable.

You only do that for dvd movies...hell it's best without.

On wii/gc games it's even worse because the way the iso's are written is not normal.



Also-this tutorial doesn't work for gamecube's or for those using mini dvd's right?

I've burned all my Wii/GC games with it on and they all work fine. I have around 32 GC games (all burned myself).

I would think that it would work on a GC, since in GC mode, this works perfectly on the Wii...
And yes hypnos, this will work with Mini-DVDs as long as you shrink the images.  Perhaps two will fit if they are small enough.

Yes.

Backup launcher or not, it's still in GC mode. And GC mode is meant to let the Wii act as a GC.

If it works on a Wii in GC mode it will work on a GC.
