Description

Game Name?

Ultimate Cheats - Metroid Prime - GHNE5d (PAL)

MD5 Hash? (right click the game in the game list, properties, info tab, MD5 Hash: Compute)

Doesn't matter as there is no such thing as a good dump for these yet.

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

Launching the game with the correct settings doesn't work as Dolphin will attempt to use the NTSC BIOS which cannot read it. By loading the PAL BIOS instead, you can load the game properly, and if you have a build that doesn't crash, actually see what's going on and use it correctly.

What steps will reproduce the problem?

Attempt to load this disc with BIOS enabled.

Is the issue present in the latest development version? For future reference, please also write down the version number of the latest development version.

5.0-8486

Is the issue present in the latest stable version?

Yep

History

What is the value of the byte at 0x45B in the ISO?

#3 Updated by JosJuice almost 3 years ago

Huh, that's weird. Are you sure this disc works on normal PAL hardware?

  • Priority changed from Normal to Low
  • Status changed from New to Accepted

Datel is doing some magic in their apploaders, so the value at 0x45B is irrelevant to what region (or regions) the disc works in. Thanks, Datel...
