gameconfig.txt, config.dat, and background.png instead of the root of the SD ca
rd

Gecko 1.8.0.2

ger occur
-Fixed codeliststart for gameconfig.txt
-A minor Ocarina fix to ensure ASM insert codes will work properly

return to loader functionality (such as preloader); instead exit returns to the
Homebrew Channel, or resets the Wii if the Homebrew Channel is not installed
Gecko 1.8
-------------

What's New:
-Multidol games work through Gecko's game loader, rebooter is no longer required
for them
-To ensure games are fully functional the game loader now uses the IOS requested
by the game (as a result there is no 002 error, that error is due to game loade
rs booting a game with the wrong IOS)
-If a game requests an IOS that you don't have, the game's update partition will
be searched for the IOS and the option to install the IOS will be given if it i
s found (if you have a modchip, turn off update blocking!)
-It is now possible to select not to load the debugger, which increases the numb
er of code lines allowed by Ocarina
-New hooks have been added so that most (if not all) Wii games can be hooked
-Rebooter will use the hook selected on the config menu to hook games
-Rebooter is now compatible with preloader
-The menu interface has been improved, and you can load a custom background by c
reating a 640x480 PNG-24 file, naming it background.png, and putting it at the r
oot of your SD card
-The menu configuration can be saved, and the saved configuration will be loaded
automatically when Gecko starts
-A configuration file can be created for game specific settings like hook type;
see "gameconfig file format.txt" (in the "docs" folder) for details
-New code types are supported by the code handler, see "new code types doc tech.
txt" (in the "docs" folder) for details
-GPF (gecko patch file) support; see "gpf file format.txt" (in the "docs" folder
) for details
