Re: UltraHDMI question

I don't think it is encrypted, because iirc the FPGA does not support that. However, I am pretty sure there is some IP protection in place. Not sure what you are trying to accomplish here?

Re: GB Player Consolizer

Iirc, the gb consolizer reclocks the GBA to make the HDMI framerate compliant to the specs. I think the gb player probably has its own internal clock. If you want to do the same trick, that would require more advanced modding.

Re: GB Player Consolizer

If you can make it plug-and-play it would be an interesting alternative. The biggest limitation imo would be the fact that synchronizing the HDMI framerate and GB framerate would result in a non-standard HDMI output rate. It would probably still work on a lot of TVs though.

Re: ODE replacement availability

Especially the little guys are hit. The big guys get priority. :D Hopefully, it is resolved soon and we will only have a couple of weeks delay from the initial plan.

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Most likey beginning of April, we (both Citrus and I) can start shipping. However, there may be further delay due to the corona virus, unfortunately. You will receive an e-mail with a payment request. If you registered an account, you can also find the request there. I will keep the request open for...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

There will be another round of pre-orders this Thursday. For EU-based sales, you can get one at gc-loader.com . For US-based, you can get one at dansprojects . Note that both stores ship worldwide, so you can pick whatever you feel is convenient (or still has stock). Unfortunately, it looks like we ...

Re: ODE replacement availability

GC Loader developer here. It is still being produced, but the demand is high and, on top of that, production is delayed by the corona virus. There should be a steady availability eventually.

Edit: there will be another round of pre-orders this Thursday, see this post.

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

It should be working. Price is 85 incl. VAT and on top of that there will be 5-20 euros of shipping depending on the country. Also note that people from EU can still order from citrus3000psi and people from US can still order from gc-loader.com. Ordering from EU has the advantage of saving you impor...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

The button will indeed be for disc swap. But eventually Swiss will hopefully be able to automatically swap the discs. One DIP switch can be used to limit the speed of the ODE. We suspected that some games may run into issues due to too fast reads. However, at this point we have not heard any complai...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Indeed, things should go smoother and smoother each round. For the first round, the fab actually forgot to solder on a component. Citrus had to solder this on by hand for ~500 boards. If he had ordered more boards, the manual labor would have been even more intense.

Hey meneerbeer, Thanks for your fast response! Really appreciate your plan and willingness to take care of the european customers, i am sure there are also others like me. In that case, would you advice me to wait a while (1-2 months maybe) and eventually order from you? Since the current import ta...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

I live in Europe and I will start selling them eventually (hopefully next batch). It takes some time to set this up, so that is why Citrus took care of the first round. The idea will be that people based in US order from Citrus and people in EU order from me. That way people from EU do not have to p...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Thanks for all the input on DVD pass-through. I will keep it in mind for the future. Maybe there will be a limited run, for instance.

Right now the consideration was to add most important features that still allow for a relatively easy installation.

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

The main reasons for not including the feature to keep the existing disc drive are because it makes the product more expensive, longer development time, and installation is rather tricky. This feature would only be used by a relatively low amount of people. It is not really worth it. I would recomme...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Sorry for what is probably a very ignorant question, but I am new to this forum and this topic. What's the difference between this optical disc emulator and the SD2SP2 that was also just recently announced? I understand that both can be used to load backups and homebrew software, but what are the d...

Wii support has been dropped. The FFC connector pinout had to be made slightly different to allow for simple installation using the Flex PCB. It should still be possible though to swap the board with a Wiikey/Wasp Fusion on an existing installation. I would, however, recommend to just use the flex P...
