Re: Atari 2600/7800 emulators

It's pretty old, but I doubt much has happened in the Atari 2600/7800 emulation scene since (happy to be corrected if I'm wrong).

Re: RTC not working?

I mentioned this via PM, but what's your setup like? What's the boot process for you, do you ever see the original IPL/GameCube menu or are you straight into Swiss?

IDE-EXI "v2" source

A long time ago, isobel from gc-linux.com made modifications to the IDE-EXI vhdl to support DMA over EXI. This remained unreleased for a little while ~9 years (:P) since it had issues with the newly added multi word write command, but I've asked him at the request of others if it would be okay to re...

Re: Virtual Memory Card errors

SDSC uses byte addressing and thus goes through a slightly different code path so it's possible there's an issue somewhere since hardly anyone out there is still using SDSC + Virtual Memory Cards.

Re: Help to diagnose possible lens failure

It's not your lens failing (I mean they all are really to a different degree), the Datel/CodeJunkies discs are known to be notoriously hard to read even on lasers with low mileage. The suggestions Papy.G made are worth looking into if you have an original disc of an exploitable game and a spare memo...

Re: GC Loader - improvements - like WODE Jukebox

From what I hear the FPGA is already nearly full or completely full, so don't hold out too much hope for this to be added. You could write a small loader that sits before Swiss/whatever as boot.iso that reads a .txt file on the device, but the problem is that GCLoader is read-only effectively too so...

Re: Viper GC

Not yet and not without cutting it down severely (removing video calls).

dolxz appears to require a change in order to make it work properly from a cold boot on ViperGC too so that's not an option either.

Re: [Screwed Up] Optical board damaged while soldering XenoGC

It can definitely be fixed but given you didn't have the expertise to perform the modification in the first place you probably also (currently) lack the skills to repair it. If you feel like learning/spending some time on it, watch some videos online on how to perform pcb/trace repair and experiment...

Re: Action replay...I am a bit lost

Codes like that are in the WiiRD raw format, you need to turn them into Action Replay format, there are converters online and others have probably linked to reputable ones in other threads, please have a search.

Re: Qoob Chip

Flash Swiss to an empty slot on the Qoob Pro, when booting up, hold Y to bring up the flash menu on the Qoob Pro and select Swiss.

For original discs, hold X to bypass the Qoob Pro and go to the original menu.

Basically, don't use the Qoob Bios for anything else :P

Re: GCOS questions

I had a look, you're better off just using Dolphin and enable texture dumping to get it raw, or straight from your HDMI footage, it's a packed format and if you look at draw.c from the same source you'll see how it's unpacked and then directly drawn onto the framebuffer: //Allocate some space to dec...

Re: GCOS Releases

Welcome.

Yes those are bitmaps of some kind represented as byte arrays in .c/.h files.

Don't use GCOS as an example into programming for the GameCube, it's extremely outdated, you're better off looking at Swiss.

Re: Dead dvd drive but laser working?

On the faulty top part, the laser is working fine but it is not able to launch any game. For originals it tries to read it and the lens will go all on top after a while and the disc will stop spinning (sometimes up to 15-20 second trying to read game). - I can see the laser beam so it is not burnt ...

Re: Fried motherboard repair (zeldaxpro HDMI adapter)

Sounds like it was something in the zeldaxpro that burnt up and not in the GameCube itself. As for it working again, sometimes there's components that have a non-instant recovery time (like a fuse, but not quite), I've noticed it in some Nintendo 64 power bricks myself after having shorted something...
