Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

Homebrew is just unlicensed software made by independent developers. You need some kind of exploit/boot disc/modchip to run any. Swiss and GBI are homebrew. Swiss isn't strictly required to use GBI, but it offers a slightly friendlier interface to modify your configuration before booting it up. It's...

i see, but its not the lastest official version
emu_kidid's version is better for running on the GC, as it has ARAM support for larger ROMs, and it's up to date with the official source. If you want to compile it, then try to compile that version instead.

Re: Is the Xeno chip supposed to do that?

Is the console itself NTSC? How about the TV? This has most likely nothing to do with the modchip itself.

Extrems reminded me that Swiss sets the 60 hz flag, so just go into its settings and choose 480i.

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

1) Yeah, just load Swiss from SDML, and then a PAL game off of your SD card from there. 2) SRAM is a persistent storage area backed by the clock battery. The setting for 60 hz is stored there, and it can be changed with homebrew software, but I don't remember any that lets you do that. 3) That shoul...

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

You don't need a physical copy of the game, with SDML you can use Swiss to load it from your SD card. I don't remember if there's homebrew that can change the SRAM settings or not.

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

4GB non-HC cards exist but are hard to find.
The IPL always runs in 50hz mode so this could be your problem. What kind of CRT are you using?

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

1) Correct.

2) SDML is probably easier to set up than game exploits, but it doesn't support SDHC which may or may not be a problem for you.

3/4) No idea. Try holding B while loading a PAL game and choosing 60 hz mode.

Re: Game Boy Interface

Wasn't that only technically "support" because it was just outputting a 16:9 image to the same standard output resolution anyway and asking the user to take action to stretch it? Anamorphic wide screen was the standard back then. True wide screen (with square pixels) only got popular with digital T...

Try lowering the pot even more, 190 Ohm is pretty high.

Re: Game Boy Interface

The easiest way is to use Swiss as your boot.gci and load GBI from an SD card. That way you get a nice menu that lets you customize everything.

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

1) Because it needs a disc and it's one of the slowest boot methods, together with xenogc and save game exploits. 2) The best methods are IPL replacement (qoob/viper) and drive emulators (wkf/wasp/wode...). They allow instant boot to homebrew, skipping the boot animation altogether, and the latter d...

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

It is working in the last video you posted. Did you make another install again?
If you want to check which solder joints are bad you need to probe use a multimeter in continuity mode. Stick one probe on an alternate solder point and the other on the matching microcontroller pin.

Re: GameCube laser keeps clicking and doesn't read the discs

Your xeno is properly soldered and working: your drive spins up twice, and it does attempt to read the backup. If your install was bad, it would stop spinning almost immediately with the backup.

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

Best? Definitely not. Easiest? Probably compared to installing a modchip or setting up a save exploit.
There is no exploit in the BIOS so it's not possible to boot homebrew another way.

Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

1) Get the EU version for your PAL console.
2) Yes. Failing that, Swiss can do it.
3) You can probably softmod your Wii to accept the disc, but there is really no point on using it on the Wii in the first place.
