Re: gamecube light gun? help

I know it's an old thread but... could the two light gun meant to be used with Cocoto Funfair a.k.a. Cocoto Magic Circus? It's a shooting game released on Gamecube, Wii and Ps2. The ps2 version uses the Guncon and the wii version uses the wiimote. Being a shooting games doesn't make much sense to us...

Re: GBA Link Cable Dumper

I had a flash cart for GBA with a custom cable to connect the GBA thru his link port to a PC parallel port. It was slooooow and, IIRC you can only put one game at time.

Direct support using a modified cable.
Great! There is other software that uses the N64 controller? I mean there should be a test disk IIRC but does it work with, example, the N64 emulated copy of Zelda OOT?

Re: Panasonic Q DVD region free Mod

You need a copy of the DVD, an authoring DVD burner and an Authoring DVD-r. The authoring media isn't a standard dvd-r. A standard DVD-r with a standard dvd recorder is not going to work.

Re: Panasonic Q DVD region free Mod

The mod is not only adding a pic (with unknow code BTW) and updating the firmware (with an almost impossible to find authoring DVD). You also have to add anther ram chip (with decouplig caps, IIRC) if you want to enable PAL decoding. If you have a look on the ram chips on the third photo you will no...

If it's claimed that the XenoGC can only recognise the 3 drives from standard GameCubes, in theory, if one was to inject the Panasonic drive into the code/bios for it to recognise, will it then work??
Where did you read this claim?

Probably the "boot" version is connected to HW version.

Memory card editing with Raspberry PI

I missed this one: it's a project for reading and writing GameCube memory cards with a Raspberry Pi. Not exactly the most useful thing since you can use a softmodded wii or HW on gamecube but it's nice to know about new stuff being developed for the cube. https://jamchamb.github.io/2018/12/03/gamecu...

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

Vertical resolution is 480 for NTSC vs 576 for pal, this is why they need more ram. On the unmodded units the chip is missing.

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

Panasonic Q is NTSC-Jap. To make a universal video dvd reader for NTSC you need a service disk (that is not easy to replicate because it uses a special format). For having Pal compatibility you need also an extra memory chip and,from the photos I saw, also a pic with unknown content.

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

This is the problem with opinions... they are not facts. The gamecube motherboard inside a Panasonic Q is almost standard so, every modchip connected to the motherboard will work in the same way. The dvd drive uses a custom board because it interface with both the gamecube motherboard and the dvd de...

You will realize that a 0 ohm resistor or simply some solder will do the trick.

Being based on the D4 chipset it doesn't have regular DVD support. Probably is possible to replace the controller board but that would means also manually rewire the laser and spindle motor.
