Re: Black Label vs. Greatest Hits /Players Choice /Platinum

The "Greatest Hits" style cases really mess up a good perfect looking row of games.. especially the bright yellow gamecube ones. I always go with originals if possible for that reason.

Re: Simplest way to run HomeBrew and backups?

Update: I actually soldered it in with my new iron into one of my "spare" units. It's not lighting up but I checked and rechecked, everything is in properly. I don't know if I shorted it out before or if it's just defective.. (it did come from a strange Chinese reseller afterall). I'd be willing to ...

Re: Simplest way to run HomeBrew and backups?

Thanks!
A big part of my problem was that the iron I used had an extremely long and blunt tip with large solder.. kinda foolish. I have a newer iron with a shorter, fine tip and small solder now so maybe it will go better this time..

Re: Show off your Cube!

Nothing special. The black one is my favorite. Sadly the Wavebird receiver I got from my attic is dead, but I can't stand to part with it. :(

Re: HDMI, VGA Wahtever

Since the Gamecube only supports a max of Wide-480p, there's not much benefit to going VGA or HDMI unless you need to plug it into a PC monitor. If you're just looking for the best the GC can look, go for the component cables which, unfortunately, are rare and not cheap. (You'd pretty much need it a...

Simplest way to run HomeBrew and backups?

Hey all! I'm wondering what the simplest (in terms of hardware installation) method of modding the Gamecube is. I got a XenoGC and all seemed fine, but I didn't have the right equipment or skills to solder those tiny points and ended up wrecking the debug leads on one of my beautiful little cubes. :...

GameCube/Classic Controller Stick mod.

*Sorry if something like this has appeared here before, I couldn't find anything searching though.* As I'm eagerly awaiting my XenoGC to arrive (probably tomorrow! :D ) I decided to make my controllers better, since I really always hated those "C Sticks". So I opened two GC and one WiiClassic contro...
