"Add reader mode options"

That sounds interesting, like they updated the in-game guide function?  Hm, wonder what it means exactly.

SW-CW Jedi Alliance still doesn't work on my rumble and tried multiple settings (including messing with the new Card Read Mode). So I guess won't be fixed.

As M&L RPG 3, yeah still doesn't work, but at least you can go to menu (freezes at the same spot as M3Real).

Anyway, only two games not working... not bad at all for a Slot-2 Card =D

The software might work in WINE, not entirely sure about that.

Does anyone know what this means/determined the functionality the supercard people are talking about?

quote from English supercard site:

Slot2 Convert Software v2.69 released   Update(2009.02.20)
1. Added: Card read mode option, improve the compatibility. Almost all games works in mode1, if some games cant work, try with mode2 or mode3.
e.g. should choose mode3 for #3398

What is "read mode option"?

@ thehunter8478

the supercard slot 2 patcher DOES work in wine.

make sure you have the latest version (or well. i'm pretty sure it worked in the earlier versions)

the thing is though, you have to execute the patcher with wine from inside the directory, otherwise you get this weird error.

so usually you install it in your fake c drive... which is usually located in ~/.wine/drive_c/

~/ being your home directory.

so cd (or go into) ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files/SC directory and wine the SuperCardmicrosd.exe from there

or make a script

use your favorite text editor (gedit, mousepad, vim, nano) whatever with root priviledges

something like (lets base it off of a gnome ubuntu system - but it should work for a generic linux distro)

do - "sudo gedit /usr/bin/supercard"

paste this inside
Code: [Select]
   #!/bin/sh
   cd ~/.wine/drive_c/Program\ Files/SC
   if [ "$1" != "" ]; then
   var="`echo $1 | sed 's/\//\\\/g'`"
   var="Z:${var}"
   wine SuperCardmicrosd.exe "$var"
   else
   wine SuperCardmicrosd.exe
   fi
and then save it (moddified from a file used to execute utorrent. you could probably change it to execute utorrent easily :) haha)

then do "sudo chmod +x /usr/bin/supercard" to make it executable

so if you type "supercard" in your terminal or f2 and put it in the command box, it'll work.


in short - wine with supercard software works. (i dont use it anymore since i dont have a slot 2, but man. that thing rocked. it lasted a long time and its still alive!)

well. if you dont want to use sudo, you probably already know how to get root privildges, so whatever. this is just one way.

if you dont have sudo, you can just do "su" to change to root. and then enter the commands without sudo.

hm... and thehunter8478, welcome to the chaotic world of linux. haha

well. there probably is an easier way, and maybe just installing it through wine works. but this is how it worked for me. so yeah. (archlinux ftw!)

it was actually quite easier than that.... i just went to the terminal andd typed: wine and the location of the file and it was installed; it works without a hitch.
