Re: Wiimc

Also, if you have an incompatible DVD playing Wii, alternatively you can actually backup your DVD movies to an external HDD or use the SD card and WiiMC will play the files. Downside is the file sizes but I've done this and it works. Another method is to connect a USB DVD drive and play your movies ...

Re: Replacement case for full sized DVDs?

If you can't find a replacement top then personally I wouldn't cut the original. Just leave the top off (but to the side) and use full size discs without it on. Put tape or something better to hold the lid switch down. When your not playing, just sit the top back on to prevent dust accumulation. Not...

Re: Looking to mod my Gamecube

First you need a Nintendo screwdriver bit so you can open them. Or melt the tip of a clear BIC pen and mold it over the screw. Won't work if they're really tight though. In my opinion, the GC is one of the easiest to get started with as far as disassembly etc. Just the top half of the case can run y...

Re: Gamecube Display Question

You can adjust picture size to 4:3 ratio on your TV. And yeah the GameCube component cables are expensive. Only Nintendo made them and in very limited quantities. Expect to pay from $250-$300 easy online. Your cheapest solution would be to get an original GC compatible Wii and get component cables f...

Re: how far can modding go?

No problem. If you have a compatible drive that supports raw dump etc. then you can use that dvd drive in conjunction with uLoader app and play burned Wii games that way on your wii. I haven't found a solution similar to that which supports burned GC though as uLoader doesn't work for that.

While I can't do 480p with RGB, I can do 240p, now that this can be done with Swiss, and run it into my XRGB to either linedouble it ...

You could probably do that with WiiMC Player but that would be pretty cool to do. Do you mean rip a DVD to fit on a mini DVD with maybe a menu and little else? I would like to see that.

You need a security bit to open the gamecube too, not sure which size. Other than that you're good to go! Or you can take a Bic pen (clear plastic) remove the ink and tip, and melt over a flame. Then quickly mold it over the screw until it hardens. It's a quick and simple solution since those Ninte...

Re: Best school friendly bag for a cube?

Need one of these? It's a GC school bag. Lots of pockets. The only thing I don't like is that the bottom of the bag isn't solid. It's material so it doesn't stand on its own. I found it on eBay. Also has a shoulder handle and the logo is stitched.

Re: First time help

The game will save to the memory card in either slot. SDML can be used in either slot as well. I don't believe Swiss currently supports saving to sd cards. Swiss.dol is the file you need to run.
