Re: New to HOMEBREW, SWISS, & GBI. Need help!

If you're not already set up for GC mini DVD bruning, it can be quite risky to go this way at first. Check around in your neigbourhood or relatives if you can't get hold of a modded cube or capable wii, and an exploitable gamecube game, there are both very good ones that are worth to get, and cheap ...

Re: GBA Link Cable Dumper

I'm afraid the GBA won't be able to write to the Rom area in a cart.

Although the bus differs much from the GB/GBC, so I hope I'm wrong.

Re: GBP Start-Up Disc Japan useful?

Try to run it from SWISS, off an SD card, maybe you have a bad ISO.
I had no problem runnig the euro ISO on my Gamecube (Stock GC, Not tried 480p BTW).

Few games really need to be burnt on discs to run well. Always double check your ISO is clean before burning, either way.

Re: How do I compile DOL files?

The fact is finding compiled releases on Github is not as straightforward as some may expect, when you're not directed to the right "directory". I personnally have hard times with the "awkward" ergonomics of the website, and while I may have good reasons to rely on this site for an oncoming project ...

Re: Game Boy Interface

it may be that the WiiU has buffers to anticipate the TV's Lag.

I just checked, my TV doesn't add lag to the inputs, only to the Broadcasts.

Re: GBP Start-Up Disc Japan useful?

Why the heck would you bother getting a japanese version of something when: 1. You're not able to understand such language. 2. You can get one in your own language. Apart from a collector's point of view, there are no reasons to do so, first, your GC can run any region disc, and the GBP hardware is ...

Re: EZ-Flash Omega

It was already answered in another thread, but because of their hardware design, some Flascarts may cause weirdnesses when using the reset button, same goes for multi-rom carts. It can usually be adressed by pressing the reset button a little longer than needed by original games, or, in extrem cases...

If you're on a LCD TV, you may be able to set the latency to a minimum (there usually is a default value to match the video chain's).

Re: Replacing GameCube fan (

It's gonna be more and more difficult to get unmodded and working units, so it can be wise to use game exploits to launch Swiss instead, to avoid the risk and hassle of soldering such circuits. You may be able to get the screwdriver for less than $2 shipped, but if you can get another gamecube with ...

Re: Replacing GameCube fan (

Any fan won't be power hungry to the point it can sink or damage the GC unit or PSU. Try first to blow the original fan (off the GC and disconnected), the lubricant sometimes sticks when not used for long. Blow the air intake and outlet, the straight and reverse ways, if you find dust inside, it won...

Try to clean discs and lens, check if the discs don't show signs of "plate separation", it can be seen sometimes from the border, the metallic sheet shows irisation.

Re: gamecube plays game disc then msg "an error has occurred"

Try to play these games straight from the disc, you'll then see if it is because of the video forcing.
Do those games natively support 480i? (There are Pal games that don't offer Pal 60 compatibility, and forcing them to 480/60, i or p, may lead to crashes)

In Swiis, you have this info, when loading a game from a disc.
But why bother finding AR codes for WideScreen, while you have SWISS setup for that?

Re: Gamecube "An error has occured", won't attempt to read discs

I'm not an expert in faulty GameCubes, since I traded away the platinum one I had broken the audio out.

AFAIK you may get an error if no drive is connected, but you can swap drives to test, but remember doing so, you can fry a working device too.

Some people here may help way better than me.

I don't see where getting 240P would improve quality output over 480i, it's quite a nonsense! first, if you have a Pal GC, you're supposed to have 50Hz versions that will probably give you best quality in 576i, to begin with. If your CRT monitor doesn't handle 480P, you won't have to mod a Component...

Re: Need help with Game Boy Interface

I had the same problem some times ago, and believed it was due to Swiss Version. It happened once more today, I wonder why but it seems that you need to show unknown files in SWISS options to be able to make use of the .DCP files.
