Rice may work faster but the port is missing quite a few things which is potentially why. It's also a lot messier than glN64 to follow (code-wise).

Re: Yet another USB Gecko clone

I have done it, I typically have the PCB in the GameCube memory card slot with the power turned on when programming since my xilinx platform cable knockoff (and real ones?) don't power the device by default.

Re: Drive Super Famicom CD exist!

Yes the port is in the same spot on PAL/NTSC-J/NTSC-U SNES consoles.

Regarding the real Nintendo Playstation, it's a shame, the guy had much higher offers initially but he rejected them all.

Re: GC dvd drive on PC?

I remember my eMac with early OSX 10.2's disk backup utility was able to rip and burn some Video DVD's without any copyright disclaimer, I wonder if it would be able to do so with GC disks (unfortunately, I don't have it anymore). I highly doubt it, disc drives refuse to read GameCube/Wii discs. Th...

Sounds like you've started a new career/point in your career/job, I personally find that it's best to wait when a big life event happens, don't go drastically selling everything off if you don't need to, you may want to return to it one day. That's my approach anyway and it seems to have worked for ...

Registered just to answer your question. There already exists DVD drives that can be used on PC to rip Wii and GameCube games. Have a look here: https://github.com/bradenmcd/friidump and see if you have a drive that's supported. However consider a used Wii is about 20$. Not sure if you want to go t...

It had some form of obfuscation and a check at boot time, but it was easily reversed and someone kept leaking the bios in .dol format.

Re: XenoGC and Panasonic Q

Swiss can dump drive firmware via the "System" device. You can do this on every retail version of the GameCube, including the Panasonic Q as long as you can boot homebrew on it. Dump all drive firmwares, understand what those offsets in XenoGC mean, adapt them for the Q and then you might be in luck...

Re: NinjaMod

Yes there were salty feelings behind this that I still have to this day. It's a tmbinc modchip clone.

It was bad quality and they used GCOS (with minor UI changes) on it without any permission. It's the same as trying to release a mod now with Swiss on it as the main bios and claiming it's yours :P

Re: Cube64/Not64 and SD2SP2

With no UI and locked down options/device availability it'd be possible. To make it work on GameCube with all the options everyone expects from an emulator, not so easy.

Of course it can be done, no one has done it yet. All you would need is to expose the internal command set/registers over USB (or whatever) and then have a program on the PC to call what it needs to just like a GameCube/Wii would. If you wanted it to appear as a proper disc with the files served to ...

Re: Flashing swiss to qoob pro chip

Show pictures of the USB and how it's connected to the Qoob PRO. Some full sized disc shells added a USB-A port on the back that could connect to the Qoob internally, if it's set up properly you should be able to use it to flash Swiss onto the Qoob.
