Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Well, I have come with something possibly useful for once. This is a very good alternative to an actual XenoGC IMO if done with a Raspberry Pi Zero. An electronics store called Microcenter near me sells Pi Zero 1.3's (or Pi Zero W's if in stock) for $5 USD. You can pick up a crappy 16GB Microcenter ...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Ah I see, that makes sense. And yeah I checked my wiring and reflowed the solder joints where I thought it looked iffy and it is doing the same thing. Swiss says:

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Sorry, I know you said you can't help much more, but I was trying to look in to why it doesn't seem to work with retail games, and it looks like it doesnt inject whatever code is normally injected to patch the drive, as 85% when there is a retail game in, the green ACT LED does not turn on, and the ...

Re: Enhanced mGBA

Very nice emulator, only thing I can really complain about is that Mother 3 (and I assume other 32MB roms) don't work which kinda sucks, but other than that, emulation is smooth and there are a ton of options

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

It's just a build of iplboot , if it actually works then it should load ipl.dol from your SD card without needing to use a homebrew disc (it does need a disc in the drive to work though). Ah I see, that sounds like a cool idea. I tried putting swiss on my SD root and renaming it to ipl.dol, didn't ...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

I can't help you much more than this. It should behave exactly the same as a real xenogc, so this is what you get. Do try to adjust your pot, that could help a lot. I'd recommend just burning a Swiss disc and playing your games off of an SD card. Alright :) Thanks again, I've managed to work a lot ...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

I'm surprised that build made a difference, it was probably just your wiring that needed some care. If you don't mind, try the previous build again to see if it still works. Ah, yeah I think it was either my wiring or maybe I forgot to copy and rename kernel to kernel7 and I didn't realize, but the...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

I was more interested in the pi side of things, but if it works then that's good. Have fun! Thanks again, here's a pic of the Pi, hard to tell whats what since all of the wires are the same color but I did the same pins as what you had in the picture. Super crappy soldering, probably should have pr...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

That's actually not supposed to happen because it turns out the pin for the LED is different on models B+ and 2. :P Here's a build with that fixed. I can also confirm that kernel7.img is the file you want to replace with my kernel.img. Also make sure your wires are connected to the right pins on th...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Based on your description, it seems like it's not working. The flashing pattern you're seeing mean the pi is booting something, but you should see one more solid green during the GC boot animation. I've also checked the behavior of an unmodded drive (don't have the pi installed in there anymore) an...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Gotcha, and my bad I didn't see that question. The ACT LED turns on solid for about 1 second, turns off, and blinks twice, and stays off before the screen displays the Gamecube animation. The red LED stays on the entire time

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Nope, just goes straight to the game when I hold start with a legit disc I assume with the kernel you made the Pi is supposed to have a rainbow screen, right? I am not using the HDMI port normally, but I was curious to see what would happen if I did before I soldered it to the GameCube. Also, I shou...

No don't touch it, this means it's working. Do legit discs work?
Ah okay, I shoulda read this before I redid it but it's doing the same thing (although my solder job now is much less iffy) and legit discs do work.

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

When I have a disc in and start the system it spins up a little bit once, slows down a lot, and spins up again and reads the game

I think I might have done a crappy job soldering, I'll try resoldering everything

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Soldered the power to the Gamecube now, isn't making the games not read but doesn't seem to be doing something like last time. Also, when I held the start button down nothing happened, I tried before turning the system on, during the Gamecube animation, and near the end of it

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Fair enough. Here's a build that should work on all rpi2 and 3 models (and will not work on the original model B/B+), keep in mind that it's untested and using a newer compiler so it's not guaranteed to work. Setup is the same. Nice! Thank you, I appreciate it. I'm a bit new to the whole Gamecube m...

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Ah alright, that makes sense. And yeah I understand, I am just interested because I already ordered a XenoGC but it's going to take a couple of weeks to get here, and I have an extra GameCube that I don't use.

Re: Streetwalrus's first GameCube

Super noob question (and possible necrobump, I'm sorry), but would this work for the Pi 2 Model B?
