Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

I opted to purchase through meneerbeer's site as Dan's methods of selling created hoards of buyer hitting F5 for an hour before the sale, stalling the site. The pay later option seemed best as less clicking and page loading, even so i had trouble with a couple of page errors before managing to have ...

Re: Greetings from DOL-002 (BRA)

If anything its a blessing, it forces many to learn a second language in order to play games... Regarding the market of Brasil, i believe many companies are hesitant to support the region due to the taxes imposed and rampant piracy. I don't know anyone who bought original games, most systems only so...

Re: What is the best GCVideo adapter?

They all run the same software as far as i am aware, so it comes down to differences in hardware and if you prefer an internal mode or plug and play.

Carby V2 is a great plug and play option for most users due to build quality and price point.

Re: Hello, Im new and I need help

Hello everyone :) I just got a Japanese GameCube (DOL-001 (JPN) ) and of course, I wish to Soft mod it if possible as I am too clumsy to properly install the chip inside so I was thinking to turn to soft-modding. Could anyone tell me whether a combination of freeloader CD (suitable for JPN region) ...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Meneerbeer are you able to give another update? Seems like there is plenty of interest in supporting the testing, have you considered using a crowd sourcing platform to manage orders and fund the rest of your development, production and distribution?

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

Thanks for all the interest. The project is certainly still ongoing. Most of the essential features have been implemented, such as firmware updates, and I only have a few things left to implement. Once that is done I am thinking of doing a small production run so some other people can help test. Th...

Re: Trouble loading Swiss from AC exploit

Problem with file? I don't think so. 101 isn't new version of exploit, but exploit used for AC version 1.01. If you have DVD with version 1.00, then it's obvious, that you have to use exploit intended for version 1.00 (therefore gaej_v100.gci). Yes exactly, but as i stated the file for AC version 1...

Re: Game Boy Interface

I have the GBI booting straight from memory card with the AC exploit. I notice the disc drive is still running when running the GBI, is there a way to turn this off without opening the lid? Would be great if the software turned it off when booting.

Did NZ get AUS coded GameCube stuff or ?
Yes AUS Pal covers NZ, we get all the same packaging, although more recently we have been missing the distribution of some releases, for example some Switch games get sold in EBgames Australia miss releasing in the NZ EBgames stores

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

It is very close to being ready (which means that for any sort of release it is still going to take at least a few months). The redesigned board that I ordered works, but it had a few minor mistakes. I have already ordered a new revision, so hopefully then everything is all good. The firmware still...

Re: Trouble loading Swiss from AC exploit

Update - There is a problem with the gaej_v101.gci file, using the gaej_v100.gci file works and i was able to boot the exploit using a NTSC japanese version of animal crossing E+ (Dōbutsu no Mori E+).
