How do I program an Altera CPLD to make my own USB Gecko??

Hello,
I'm still in possession of a working USB Gecko, but I've been wondering what tools were used to program its Altera micro controller.
Just stumbled over this nice board and I'm eager building a USB of it!

Can I use an Arduino Uno for this?

Re: Controller ports not working

No there isn't, the controller ports are mounted right onto the mainboard in the Wii. Yep, just seen that by opening it. That's sad. But hey, there're fitting ones around the web. This one looks very decent to me . 12 lanes and 13mm wide :) EDIT: Gonna try if i can find out which lane is broken to ...

Re: Controller ports not working

It looks like the Led is showing signs of wear.. Im not sure exactly if that also links into the controller data line.. but if you see no other signs of wear/broken traces it would be a good place to start. Btw Badassconsoles.com sells working controller boards for a buck. it may take a couple of w...

Re: Controller ports not working

I have mingled a little bit more with it and bent the ribbon (in the case it has an inner interruption of connection). I was right with this assumption. Got control working for a few seconds. Next time I restarted the cube it gives me an odd error message: 20160123_151413.jpg It says that the calend...

Re: Controller ports not working

Did it. The front blend is definitely the faulty component. (replacing the silvern cube's blend with the purple ones did the trick. Putting the silvern one's into the purple cube gave me the same error over there) The ribbon is also fine. Every lane conducts. It can't be the resistor because the LED...

Controller ports not working

Hi, I have got another GameCube and the controller ports do not work. But my controller is definitely fine since it works on my other GameCube. I'd also like to mention that it requires some force to plug in the controller... I have opened it to have a look if I can figure out anything. But the ribb...

i tried that long time ago by enabling the machine camera that is fixed on the vehicle. but no success so far. I don't know if replay mode cameras can be enabled in race modes. At least it could be possible in replay mode if we find the addresses of the machine's camera's coordinates, i think.
