Re: Do Gamecubes (DOL-001) without Digital AV exist?

Hmmm, quite weird. It may be a repaired/opened unit with a dol 001 outer (lower) casing with dol 101 backplate and innards. If the casing has a hole for the serial port 2, but no actual connector from the motherboard that may very well be the case and thus being a gamecube that has been disassembled...

Re: Cloning the GameCube component cable

The 54 Mhz clock from pin 2 may cause interference, but megalomaniac is pretty knowledgeable and has been developing for quite some time now. On top of that it is a known issue and I believe he said it was due to the manufacturings standard not being up to par...multiple times ao I doubt his design ...

Yes, no rumble basically makes me loose interest. I asked the seller and s/he said it didn't supportb it, forgot to inform you guys in this thread.

Re: Custom QSB for Wasp/WKF with DVD drive

Those are looking very nice, good job. I already have a megadrive v3and v5 so it is no pressing matter for me to test them immediately. Maybe somewhere in the future.

Will keep an eye on your thead over at assemblergames ;)

Re: Show off your Cube!

I thought about that, but the official jewel had a similar pose of samus. On top of that, I have actually painted a complementary controller yellow bottom orange top with orange plug, with the red screw attack logo above the start button.

Re: Show off your Cube!

Those lights look very cool; not to in your face but not tucked away either. Was doing a little paint project, so I painted some cubes. Wanted to make it look as stock as possible, so what is grey in the original colours remains grey. Most of them had faded colours so now they look like new again. T...

Re: New wavebird clone pops up on ebay

Yes the pcb might give troubles bit it might be easily resolved (if it only rumble and/or batterie placement) knowing that the buttons are all already in the right place.
Might jump on this in a few weeks and if I do I'll let you guys know.

I will be there day 1 of course. It is an interesting concept and the hardware and design both look appealing.

Nice worklog and it is looking very good for your first portable; I particularly like how you absorbed the Gamecube controller in there with the original layout. One thing though; with the disc drive, isn't it a little big? Did you consider using a drive replcement such as the wasp fusion? Either wa...

Ah, fair enough Unseen. Though if it would be manually toggled (and by default it would be 720x480, instead of auto-detecting) would it still have lower compatibility? Is it compatibility on a game per game basis or does it have something to do with the software code? Anyway, I understand and thanks...

Re: Cloning the GameCube component cable

That would result in a non-standard video timing though - real 640x480 needs a different pixel clock. Ah so it wouldn't be as easy as to flag them as inactive. Ocarina of Time outputs a 704x240 image, check the OSD - it should still have small black bars. =) So I was wrong there. Truth is, I don't ...

Re: Change Games Video Output Resolution?

That's what I feared.

So how would resolution be specified in a hexeditor in order to track it down? Or would it require a different method and if so, what may that be? I'm a little new to hacking so anyone knows something to point me in the right direction? What would I need to learn?
