    Default Play DVD-R games in GameCube Guide (none modchip Action Replay method)

    I'm only going to go through the streaming install method for now.

    I am planning on a Flashable memcard method aswell but I want to wait till I have one myself before wrighting anything up on that method.

    Default Items Needed

    Items needed for installation:-


    Note:- CubeSoft Pheonix (I used v2.50b) is an offsite link with CubeSoft Pheonix v2.50b, you can also get all the other files from that site but navigating it is a nightmare.

    Items needed after installation:-
    • Action Replay 1.6 or higher
    • Memcard [Codes+GameCube dol's]
    • Fstfix

    • There are a few options here to force display in NTSC or PAL using X or Y or A to auto select


    Note 1:- Activate all the codes for Action Replay, The code is called Action Replay so please don't missunderstand that thinking I mean enabling the codes for every game or something.



    Running of GCoS the rest of the time
    • Insert Memcard [Codes+GameCube dol's] into Port 2
    • Insert Action Replay disc
    • Power up GameCube

    • There are a few options here to force display in NTSC or PAL using X or Y or A to auto select


    Note 2:- The Following (M) code edit may get the trick working with other versions of the Action Replay, the code will also let you swop after Pressing A and Open then Close the Disc lid once instead of twice, but be warned this may also cause unwanted effects in your backups (I havn't noticed anything yet myself though)

    Default Keeping up to date and other links

    Links to keep up to date with GCoS and the Boot to Memcard [Action Replay Trick] and other links.


    Please note, I couldn't find a reliable link for the Memcard [Action Replay Trick] that will have updates, also I can't recomend any none UK sites to buy from as I have only had personal experience from the UK ones I linked
