this is proving...exhasting. SM 3.6 just flickers with it's startup screen and then dies, further tantalising me with prospects of working. i think tried a couple of other launchers through AR max, to no avail. keylauncher came up with an error message in spanish about being unable to read a configuration file, and the most successful to date was 'bootadvance' which just came up with an unpopulated file browser (or at least i think it was...). i don't understand where i'm going wrong =/
well you could make a KL.DAT, make a max save with that and copy it over and load keylauncher again
or do the same with a boot.elf and use runme
the choice is yours, but i think boot.elf would be easier (using what i posted before)
i had a go with the max save thing, i managed to get a boot.elf into /BOOT on the MC, but didn't know what todo with it. how would i boot off the MC once i got it on there? seeing as i can't get any other .elf loaders to work
anyway, i am currently trying this:http://forums.afterdawn.com/thread_view.cfm/337567 except swaping cogswap for the MCBoot elf, but having issues getting cd-loader to recognise my disk =/
EDIT: I DID IT! ok, i'll write up a full version later for people in a similar boat to me, but i'm kicking myself in the shins for not thinking of it earlier >_<. basically, i made a max save that have the Free MCBoot as SWAPMAGIC.elf in /SWAPMAGIC on the memory card as opposed to the USB stick, and then it just autobooted as it should have done with the USB and bob was my proverbial uncle! Thanks for all the tips guys!, now onto stage 2....
EDIT2: would not formatting the MC before installing MCBoot cause issues? in which case i may have to re-install, as i'm suffering from a case of black-screenitus from any boot.elf i try ;_;
