Re: Hi, about Serial port 2 USB for Swiss, any chance?

Didn't already, seems that many experience problems doing this mod. I wonder if it is safe to solder straight in the vias under the CPU, as it can heat and desolder the BGA… I have slots on cards with cap already in place, and some without and I won't add them at first, it must be the closer to the ...

Re: Qoob Chip

I said that it may be slow, if even it is feasible, to add external Flash to a Xeno GC, and if we manage to add SPI memory, it would be worth to go the extra mile to get SD support as well. For this kind of application, you have better start with high-speed 8051 core µC who will be able to handle th...

Re: Gamecube corrupts graphics or hangs

Try to launch them off the last SWISS rev. from your SD, check if there is enough space for patches, and with analog out. But it seems it is GPU (memory) related, is the minimap OK in TP? Can you boot any off these problematic games straight off the original disc? I have read that RSII and III, and ...

Re: Problem with GC DOL 101

You may try to get the exploit for every game you have from the GC forever Wiki (which I think you already did, anyway) Then, download the latest GBI and in the MCBackup folder, pick GBI.gci, no matter you have or don't have a GBPlayer. Put those on your GCMemCard with GCMM. You should now be able t...

Re: Is this really a black screen of death? [Revived from black screen of death]

Is this chip that much specific in wiring (it has a DOL marking), or can it be replaced by a generic one?

Re: Pluto HDMI board audio issue

No, no analog audio out happens to me sometimes too, with the GCPlug (FW 2.4c). I'm not able to reproduce it, but it sure happened once or twice. Maybe you fried something wiring it wrong, it happened to me with my Zelda platinum GC, I killed the audio out (at least analog) tinkering in the Digital ...

Re: Problem with GC DOL 101

Trying with handmade stuff won't get you anywhere, because it is very error prone. First, you have to make sure the software side is OK, both what is on your GC Memcard, and what is on your SD card, that it works well together and with the game you're using to boot. One safe thing to do first is to ...

Why is your autoexec.dol only 900kB? It should be the last swiss.dol renamed, unless you want to boot to another homebrew (gbi, or whatever…) It should work with the SD card in an SD Gecko as well, if you have one. The reddit you pointed to states fake informations: Loading via SP2 connection can't ...

Thank you for this, I was wanting to use GC rebuilder to mod Zelda Collector, but Windows (XP pro SP2) tells me it is not a valid win32 app, does it need a DLL, or is this version only 64bit compatible?

Re: Swiss Compatibility List Update (AKA Godzilla DAMM now plays on SD)

No, some games are reported as incompatible from the tests on previous versions but can be compatible as of the last release. It is better to re-test and update for those reported non-working with older SWISS releases, and adding others after testing. Seeing them in the list has no interest as long ...

First make sure the boot forwarder you put on your Memcard is SD2SP2 compatible.

No, these might be outputs, try the composite ins or PC audio, and see your TV's manual for specific HDMI setups. The simpler would be to connect to a stereo for the sound unless there is a way to add analog sound to your HDMI ins on the TV, And then if you don't have audio output from the console, ...

You may not get any better with a plug and play solution, it seems to be an incompatibility on your TV. Check your TV settings, or just disable the HDMI audio, and get the analog audio from the original AV cable. ;)

Re: GameCube and USB-C

Inside the console is a 5 Amps fuse, so 3,5A might not hurt. While there are OEM power bricks as well as third party ones for far less than the price of the board you pointed, I don't see the plot in converting USB-C 5V power to GC 12V. The 12V OEM is quite easy to repair if it even dies, and if you...
