That is right, you can burn gamecube files. Much of all of you have heard of a programs called ProDG. Obviously for a lot of people ProDG is out of reach for two reasons a.) will not pay thousands of dollars just to burn GC media, b.) don't know C++. I am here to tell you, a user of a hacked version of ProDG that it DOES work. Anyone, I mean anyone who has Emule, Edonkey, Shareaza use it to download ProDG. Also, use your web browsing skills and search for some "secret programs" to extract and conform these raw ISOs. From there take those files into ProDG, use a DVD-R (big deal, ProDG is only compliant with -R Burners, not +R, and only some dual format burners) and BURN, yes, BURN the ISO. ProDG give C++ users the ability to MOD GC games. I wish I could be more specific, i.e. web cites and such, but I fear what I write. Hackers Unite.

Hey Question for you - I tried to installl the ProDG - it tells me i need to install Dolphin SDK first -What is this? I tried to search for it but really didnt find anything
#8
'Dolphin' was the project code name for the Gamecube which is why the code files have a .DOL extension. The SDK I would imagine is much like SDK's for Windows which are a collection of tools and libraries for Gamecube development. I couldn't tell you where to begin looking for those. For all I know, you might have to obtain them from Nintendo themselves.

Careful guys, ProDG is copyrighted software and talk of downloading it constitutes piracy.

Hi Maria,

You know you can email snsystems and ask them nicely for an evaluation copy:) I don't know if you need to be a game designer already though.

I can't say that im stuck because I havent tried anything yet. Been busy with new computer. I think you should post a guide:)
#16
I checked their web site thoroughly and found in their sales/eval paged that they will send it to you once your license with Nintendo has been verified so that pretty much eliminates a non-Nintendo licensed individial from obtaining the software legitimately. But again, I have seen nothing that indicated that this development suite will enable you to burn bootable GC disc. They do however offer a hardware based product that includes a customized Gamecube w/highspeed USB2.0 connectivity to a PC to emulate a disc and stream it from the PC for somewhere in the area of about $7000.

#18
Can u use the Broadband Adapter and connect the GCN to the comp, then use PRODG like you can with PSO? Or do you still need PSO?
#19
there's something in the nfo file with prodg about set DOLPHIN_ROOT=C:\temp but i don't know what that means
#20
One question.. Is there any way to burn a gc game on a mini dvd-r DC and boot it from the gamecube? Is streeming the only way?

To everyone getting the Dolphin error, copy the ProDG installer to C:/Windows/System32 . Then make sure the name of that file is the same as the file mentioned in the second command in the NFO file. Then run the first of two commands. Then run the second. Should work fine, it did for me.


However, I don't see how these programs would let anyone "burn" a Gamecube ISO, not to mention the fact that the Gamecube would have to recognize the Mini DVD-R and boot up with it too. It's not documented anywhere that the program can do this and I don't see how to do it at all. It just seems impossible. But if anyone could prove me otherwise, I would be more than happy to listen as it would be awesome to burn Gamecube discs! :)

could u explain a little more please i dont realy understand.
#23
To fix the Dolphin Error:

1. Extract the installer file from the .rar, .r01, and .r02 files using a program such as WinRar.

2. Copy the newly extracted ProDG installer file to this directory: C:\Windows\System32\

And make sure the name the installer file is: prodgforngcv37.exe

3. Run the first command found in the .NFO file using a DOS prompt. (Run " cmd " in 2000/XP or " dosprmpt " in Windows 98 or earlier).

4. Then run the second command and it should start installing.

5. Try to figure it out...I still haven't been able to work these programs at all.

Windows NT/2000/Xp - CMD
Windows 9X/ME - Command
Windows 3.1 or earlier , forget it lol

Basic Dos Commands:
Xcopy (source file) (destination)
cd (next sub directory to change to)
cd .. = go up a directory
dir = list all files in a directory
use "dir /w" for a listing of alot of files to fit more per page , or "dir /p" to split them between pages.
To run an exe file , just type the name , it dosnt matter if you include the extension or not.

Any more questions on dos commands ect , let me know , i used to program in it.

Thanks, NinjaServ, for posting a few commonly used commands. It might help a few people who are just starting to use DOS a bit. But still, if anyone has figured out how to use ProDG, give me a buzz. I can't even get the debugger to start up because I don't have it linked to a source to debug, and so I can't even learn the functionality of the program because I can't get past this error. Anyone willing to help me on this, your help is greatly appreciated. And I still think TheONE is completely wrong because the Gamecube uses a proprietary disc format only similar to mini DVD-Rs. Unless a mod chip were developed that made the GC recognize mini DVD-Rs...
