Re: Game Boy Interface

Thanks a lot Extrems! I can't thank you enough for making this. Xaranar When you go into it you should get a list of parameters. Keep scrolling down to reach brightness and contrast options.

Re: Game Boy Interface

I just discovered this amazing piece of software. When I set 4:3 and 3x zoom it 100% vertically fills the screen without horizontal stretching. I'm running this on a pal gamecube into a ntsc crt hacked to input rgb and the sharpness / image quality is amazing. All three versions work fine on my setu...

Re: 240p for Game Boy Player

Does the 240p upgrade the image quality over s-video? This is amazing. Sorry if this has already been answered I just found out about this.

Re: Gameboy player audio tap points and sound improvement mo

Hmm that sounds like a pain. I guess I'll just keep the bypass setup I have instead of risking messing up the circuit unless someone can figure out the strengths of these caps.

Re: Gameboy player audio tap points and sound improvement mo

Thanks a lot for the schematic megalo. It looks like C129/130 could be low pass filter caps they connect audio lines to what appears to be ground. Perhaps removing those caps will clean up the audio, I'll try it out later. I would do it now but our house is currently going through a Christmas time p...

Gameboy player audio tap points and sound improvement mod.

Has anyone pointed this out yet? If so please ignore this thread. *edit* Whoopsies, I just found that there's a modding sub forum, someone please move this thread there. My buddy ace mentioned the gb player has really muffled audio on the gamecube. I finally noticed the muffle myself so I cracked op...

Re: My first GCp

Yeah when I hit a snag I start doing research to see if I can find out just exactly what went wrong and how to fix it.

Re: My first GCp

Thanks for the compliments dude. I decided to use the spots instead of the dvd port because I tried to use it, and it didn't work, I got a dim red led. Not enough power and possibly a short there. So I took the port out of the equation. I will say this tho, I can't wait to play my cube. It shows qu...

Re: My first GCp

Nice, glad you got it working. I did the same thing that you did. Mine worked the first time but I had to rewire it probably around 3 times before it ran problem free. How come you soldered to those little spots (resistor arrays?) instead of the original dvd connector? I still suggest using hot glue...

So I wired that wkf and nothing. No lights on it nothing. Gave it 3.3 and grounded it and nothing. I really need to get a multimeter so I can test this stuff before I give it power. So anyway, I am stuck here until I can but a new wkf I guess. Maybe for the next wkf you can try hacking up the ribbo...

Re: My first GCp

Even if it works out I'd use hot glue with some light heatgun action to make it nice and smooth. Just in case you think it's good and there's a bad connection somewhere.

I'm curious how both of you (ashen/megalomaniac) got started with this stuff? Do you two have engineering / hardware background? I'm glad you're getting your kids involved. I also don't see how you could possibly top the design of this portable haha. Looking at the innards, where did you get the sd ...
