Re: Dreamcast owners - post your setup

I tried my Dreamcast today and it did the same thing. I have a spare battery but found that my batteries are lir2032s 3.6v so I ordered a ml2032 at 3v hopefully that solves my issue.

Re: Dreamcast owners - post your setup

Last night I left the surge protector on so the system was plugged in but with the power off. Tonight, I'll see how it behaves.

I believe I may have another ML2032. If I can find it I'll try swapping it.

My Dreamcast also has a self resetting fuse on the controller ports if that has any effect.

Re: Dreamcast owners - post your setup

I have a question for you guys. On my Dreamcast I replaced the clock battery with a battery holder and easily replaceable rechargeable battery. I have the power button on the Dreamcast always in the on position because I have it connected to a remotely controlled power strip. So it is essentially un...

Re: Dreamcast owners - post your setup

There is all kinds of stuff about removing a regulator or putting different value resistors on the stock PSU. It seemed like a better idea to me to replace it with a more modern PSU. Plus the rectifier circuit "power brick" is outside of the console with the pico psu. I doubt heat is really an issue...

Re: New Gamecube Controllers

The Wii U ones had slightly longer cords too. So these probably will.

New Gamecube Controllers

Is anyone else excited about Nintendo releasing new Gamecube Controllers or Smash Ultimate? I have 4 white ones from the Wii U release and am excited to get some new Black ones at retail price. I tried modifying the triggers to be the same as the original controllers but I honestly don't notice a di...

Re: GC fan replacement

Hey, guys quick question what did you do with the yellow wire on the fan? Does it need to be pulled up or down, fed a clock signal, or can it just be disconnected?

The Wii U can now run nintendont with full Gamecube controller and Wii U gamepad support. Someone has also made an application that lets you use non conventional control...

Swiss Question

Hello, I'm pretty new to the forum. So my current setup is a Gamecube with Viper GC flashed with Streetwalker's IPL to autoboot into Swiss on Memory Card B. I have an official Nintendo SD Gecko and a 128GB Sandisk Ultra Class 10 SD Card. My question is about the limitations of Swiss + SD Gecko. I kn...

Re: EON vs gc video adapter?

I've also owned the 2.0 version of the GCVideo Plug and Play. I didn't like it because you were supposed to remove power from your console when not in use so that it didn't short out while sitting there. I think he has fixed those problems over time but I would still just go with Mega's adapter.

Re: EON vs gc video adapter?

If you want the best buy GCVideoX from Badassconsoles.com and be patient. I currently have a beta unit and Mega is adding code to fix bugs where the open source code by unseen that powers all of these devices breaks down. The other difference between GCVideoX and these other units is he actually had...

Is there any point in having one without the usb programmer? Is it any better than a Xeno at that point?

Streetwalker can I flash your IPL to the Qoob Pro sw1.3a from a dvd-r? I don't have the USB programmer.

Re: Dreamcast owners - post your setup

I love this thread! It is cool to see that I'm not alone in soldering the PicoPSU to the pins vs. using a connector. Emu_kidd's black one is sick! So is MockyLock's white one! I go back and forth on white vs. black Dreamcasts. I think the black hides imperfections better through. It is crazy that yo...
