    GCoS Teaser Revised
    GCMODS proudly present
    -------------------

    GCOS Teaser


    System ........: Nintendo Gamecube

    File Name .....: GCoSTeaserRevised2.zip

    Released ......: 21/08/2005





    Whatsnew in the Teaser Version :

    - New GUI - Not so new thanks to ninjamod :|
    - Full No swap drive 04,06,08,Q support!
    - Saving of region preferences
    - Network Settings applied on the fly
    - Dol uploading fixed yet again!
    - DVD Reset from tools menu


    Info:
    -----
    It's been a long time since any update from us, finally I've had some
    time to sit down and code up something for the public. Most of
    the dev team seems to have gone MIA so it was down to me and
    with the help of various people from the NGC scene I was able to
    complete this Teaser with a few much needed features such as
    noswap and no idle bug.

    Features:
    --------
    Play backups and originals from every region!
    Backup Games using your BBA and any Internet Browser
    Upload and execute .dol and .elf using netcat (port 4000)



    Known Bugs:
    ----------
    There may still be a real-time clock bug in this version.
    Submit your bugs to us at #gcmods. DVD+ currently isn't working.




    Future:
    -------
    Bug identifying and fixing currently. Trying to make it work for
    everyone is a pain, but worth it.
    1.50 Final Build will be it for a while from us but will leave us
    ahead of the rest. Trust me, when it's out you will know what
    i mean.



    Compile Notes:
    -------------
    No source published this time thanks to the lamers at ninjamod.

    Please keep in mind there will be bugs. Just post them here and i'll see what i can do! :)

    Interface looks nice :)

    Booted and executes on the Panasonic Q ok. Detects it as such when choosing to boot a backup disc. Fails on both the one backup I have right now, which is a generic dvd brand, as well as on a Memorex DVD+RW disc. Not sure if this is due to the Q just not being able to read these discs or a bug with GCOS. However I did notice when it fails and gets to the "Media not recognized" error, if I choose to retry it will go back to the setting up Q drive screen, but neither boots anything, nor ever returns again to the "media not rec'd" error anymore...just sits there.

    I hear a few ticks the first read attempt. However when I hit retry, I do not hear it again, I suspect it fails to reset and redo the process.

    Also, I dunno if this means anything, but I tried choosing the boot backup option, but left my original PSO disc in the drive and tried the process on it. I still get the media error msg. If it should read both originals and backups using this option, then certainly there is a bug somewhere. Just an idea, hope it helps. :)

    Nice work! I'm going to try it out right now (with Pal Cube, Ritek G05 mini's and Max Drive Pro).

    edit: Unfortunately my old problem is still there: I always have to try a few times before the game boots on my Cube. I have a Drive 06. Apart from that: it looks nice, although the screen flickers. As like it moves a few millimeters up and down all the time. Is that my telly, or GCOS? I don't have it in games. Oh, and a little bug: in the docs sections one word is out of the box. ;)

    This is definitely a problem in gcos. I had it with gcos on both of my cubes (drives 06 & 08), but not on the ninjamod dol or now with my new qoob chip.

    I booted it up on my DOL-001 cube, drive 06, using AR 1.11 and an MC251. I tried putting in Disc 1 of Killer 7 burned on a Memorex DVD+R disc which worked fine with GCoS 1.4. The first 2 attempts failed so I rebooted my cube and tried again. This time it went to "Checking Country Code" and the disc wouldn't stop spinning. Afterwards I tried one of my Ritek G04 minis - Prince of Persia: WW. Game booted quickly with no problems.

    I have a question about the boot backup process:

    It Spins UP, Spins Down, Spins UP Again.
    IS this normal ?

    Well to report about how it works:
    Sometimes it keeps spinning in the "Checking Country Code" message, somthimes it says it wasn't recognized.
    When not recognized, I press B to retry, but the drive never spins.


    This is all I got to report about this version, since I couldn't load any backup till now.

    I've tried playing Mario Stadium, but I takes ages to boot, and when it does I get many DRE's. One in the intro movie, and one on my first game. :(

    Not sure if this the right place to start posting bugs/observations, but here goes:

    --I noticed that games with the streaming audio issue now crash to an error screen when the audio is played rather than playing the screeching sound you hear in 1.4. I tested this with a ton of games that work fine with 1.4 (other than the sound issue), but crash with 1.5.

    --Sonic Gems Collection (US, Starcube release) boots up fine, but crashes when you select and start a game (like Sonice CD, etc.). It works fine with 1.4.

    --Giest (US, Repacked Stinkycube release) boots up but crashes on streaming audio as described above. Also of note, my fstfix version locks up on the "loading" screen. Both work fine with 1.4, other than the audio issue on the non-fstfix'd one.

    --I started playing through Resident Evil 1 to check whether the multi-disc game issue is resolved with this release. I'll post once I get far enough for the game to ask for disc 2, but not sure how long it will take me hehehe. If anyone else has a savegame at a point right before the disc change, please let me know how it goes.

    --The new menu is great! Seems to load up faster than the previous one as well. The only thing I would offer is that the settings section to select whether you autodetect, always ask, or force PAL/NTSC section was a little confusing since the setting does not stay (visually) when you back out of the menu. I got it to work after playing with it a bit and it's fine.

    I have a Drive 06 Gamecube and am loading the bios with MaxDrive Pro.

    Hope this information helps--congrats on the release and great to see the project back on track! :)

    I dont think the drive 06 code was fixed for full size media as it doesnt give it time to spin up. The whole thing looks great but it flickers on my old tv set, but so did the original. I'm testing the ripper now, getting 480K/s with getright. But now I still have to load the old one back on my memory card to boot games, or use NinjaMod.
