Just like to say I think GCOS to be an excellent peice of software.
I would also like to confirm that running on Viper it's the best yet. Better than any of the Cobra releases, works absolutely perfectly with a Viper and moded lazer value GC ipl 1.0 drive 6 (61).
I love the more controllable swap function. Don't need DVD flash, it's a waste of a DVD anyway why not just leave the Cobra lead sticking out of the fan outlet so you can easily attach it to your PC. **** the graphics stick to coding as you guys do it well and slick. I don't worry to much about elaborate features untill the DVD boot works on all drive models as it does for me.
What the hell are all these idiots doing complaining about free software (you can't complain about free software if you don't like it don't use it). Also it does not make sense to bash GCOS when it's GCOS that will save the Viper chip because this is the update Bios every Viper owner wants and has been waiting for huh!!!! Why do you need a Cobra bios when this is already better and with this many updates so soon it just looks really promising.
please do not get stressed about these people GCOS coders, business people have to put up with this kind of ignorance all the time and it's true that the silent core of technical people really appreciate what is being done. Thanks a million for the free software GCOS...
i made an *cough* backup from mario power tennis, and it runs now, but its kinda weird, ill here skip once and awile like it did on cobra 4,but it doesn dre like it did on the did b4, dont mind here the skip sound ever 5 minutes? myabe its not even an skip sound maybe its actually reading something. but anywho congrats gcos team u guys rule!
AND yes i did have to crack open my case, aperently the glue didnt dry it was still sorta sticky wet, lol thats what i get for using wood glue!
I just recieved my NEC 3520A this morning and burned Fight Night Round 2, to a office depot mini dvd-r, and played it for almost 2 errors without any problems. With my old burner(A microAdvantage), I had DRE's left and right. I am going to burn more and see how it goes.
Oh, and those with NEC 3520A burners, what firmware do you have on yours?
Originally posted by GameSphere Super Mario Sunshine DREd on me once after getting the first shine, but that was the only time. I have been running this game for about a week averaging 6 hours a day. I'm also using the same burner and pretty much the same media (office depot).
I got a DRE on the windmill level after getting a shine for beating up the flower that was spitting out slime balls. (It's the first challenge of that level). I do not get DRE's when I collect blue coins.
No biggie though. I have the original, plus if I'm quick enough a save&quit keeps it from DRE'ing.
BTW I'm using the RARE release. I might try backing up my copy later, but I have too much other stuff I'm interested in burning at the moment.
Oh and thanks GCOS team for having it display disc information. It's a great way of at least showing if the disc is being read. When I was trying on earlier versions I had no clue if my cube was able to read em due to bad burns or what.
Just tried Mortal Kombat Deception. It starts ok but goes into DRE mode within 2 minutes of starting the game.
Burnout 2 doesn't start at all.
Should I try to tweak my laser or just try to find the ritek discs somewhere?
Burnout 2 works great now
DCOS was unable to read disc info before and now it plays great. I went from 475 to 195 ohms.
mk deception still crahses but I think this is a bad iso. (worked through pso though)
okej the laser tweak, was helping you to boot media, however, if it works through pso, the iso is not corupted, try burning on different media or burner. Burners like different media. Try firmware update on your burner aswell. Might solve the problem.
