Re: libogc2 networking functionality

EXTREME IS TO BE MODEST. :mrgreen: together with the The NGC picoboot GUYS opened a new data lan line through serial port 2. This really fulfills the purposes of serial port 2.!!! ETH2GC is the new data path on NGC. Developing a browser for NGC would be a benefit to the NGC community; which lacks w...

Re: Question about Memcard Pro

i have a memcard pro for the gamecube. can't say for sure about ps2 memorycard quality but i have had a variety of cards and some 3rd party ones did corrupt. Surprisingly some knock-off cards that look like the official thing turned out to be such a good clone that they might as well be a legit nint...

Re: F-Zero GX/AX Custom Stages

wow man, that's amazing. F-Zero GX was def one of my fav GC games back in the day, and it's still up there for me now. Some of those custom stages are insane! great job on those. I assume you need to use existing textures, or can you add new ones? How does the texture mapping work? unity probably is...

Re: Enabling progressive mode via Action Replay

the gamecube analog output simply cannot do it. you need to use a component cable or hdmi solution, then you can use 480p. the gamecube is not a PS2, its different hardware. it's as simple as that. Has nothing to do with codes or software. It's a hardware thing.

libogc2 networking functionality

GCARS-CS can do this, it syncs inputs between gamecubes over the internet, it was first developed for ssbm i believe. google it ;)

Re: Trouble Launching Homebrew

I own two WiiSDs and it looks like both of them hang. I just tried formatting a micro 2gb SD card and got nothing. Is there a file or something I'm missing so the AR disc can communicate properly with the SD card? I assumed at first that the hanging was due to the software looking for specific file...

how old is this emulator? we might be able to rip out the wii specific bits and make it run on the gamecube. the newer the code is the easier this is to do.

Re: Format when using GC-loader (FAT32 or exFAT)

i believe i am using exfat for compatability with my macs and the ability to use the card for storing other files as well. i've only done a default format (on my mac) and used it ever since.

Re: PSO studder with GC loader

generic memory cards are readily available and cheap, so that's probably the easiest fix. you can move your save to another memory card these days with gcmm or even swiss itself. i assume swiss will allow transfer of sd saves to a real memory card

Re: Uncovered Oficial Nintendo Gamecube Portable*

this is definitely prototyping for the wii, there are also versions of metroid prime 3 for this hardware. in terms of a gc mini, i think it would be more beneficial if they add it to the eshop as downloads, thats probably what the super mario collection is. emulating NGC on the switch is likely not ...
