Re: WiiU.Wii.GC. PPC Architectures

Can also install MacOS and Linux. The point is it's possible to port one systems games to another using some sort of compiler but it would be easier to use a virtual machine. So yes Core316 it is possible to port an older systems games to a newer system and between console Generations, it's just a l...

Re: WiiU.Wii.GC. PPC Architectures

Technically since you have to set a compatibility mode unless said game is still updated making it modern.

Re: WiiU.Wii.GC. PPC Architectures

I think mechanism in this way is referring to the definition - Established process by which something takes place.

Either way that was the true definition for compatibility mode.

Re: WiiU.Wii.GC. PPC Architectures

A compatibility mode is a software mechanism in which a software either emulates an older version of software, or mimics another operating system in order to allow older or incompatible software or files to remain compatible with the computer's newer hardware or software.

It's Emulation

Re: Purchase a NTSC cube or continue on PAL?

The real question is if it's a mod chip or just a region switch. As he didn't say we don't know and he can't play his disks if he needs a Swiss DVD to implement the settings he wants, his post makes it sound like he wants to play his original games and not roms on SD. I didn't want to assume and get...

Re: WiiU.Wii.GC. PPC Architectures

vWii is just emulation.
Emulation = Reproduction of the function or action of a different computer, software system, etc.
The original Wii would limit it's cores to be a functional GameCube thus it would emulate via hardware but the vWii is just software emulation.

Re: Purchase a NTSC cube or continue on PAL?

Swiss is your best bet for what it sounds like you want. Just need a way to implement the software so you could buy that guys cube and install a chip that allows Swiss. The cheapest way would be XENO but then you would need to load backups but it sounds like you want to play OEM games so that makes ...

It's an internal power supply. Feeds the correct power to the proper places, that's all.

Re: Cleaning discs before burning

A eye glasses cleaning kit would probably be ideal as it uses alcohol 'dries without residue' and a scratch free cloth plus it could probably be purchased at your neighborhood Dollar Store.

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

Check for shorts, even a small amount of unseen solder can cause problems, a cheap mulitmeter can test for this.
Use electrical tape on the under side of the chip 'after soldering' to not cause a short on the board as well.
This is how I do installs for reference

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

I just ran into one that refused to read burned games until I lowered the onms to 50 even with new laser. But it would read OEM games at 180

Re: GC fan replacement

Wow looks great, Good job.
I had cut off the fan housing in one and attached a 80mm to the outside of the enclosure. Doesn't collect as much dust as I thought but it sure did push air in the tight space it was in at the time.

The concern I had was the downscaling but you seemed to cover your bases quite nicely.
Good luck on your speed runs.
