Re: Can a sd2sp2 be used as memory card?

I never used the Wiikey as a memory card, is it another new SWISS feature I have missed? :oops:

If SWISS can save on a WiiKey, I don't see why it won't on an SD2SP2, unless it has to keep iso source device and save device distinct to avoid reading collisions/slows. :|

Flashcarts issues with some Gameboy Player units

Hi all, I've been bugged by an issue with my Supercard SD and GameBoy Player, and first thought it was because of GBI, further testing showed that it isn't software related, I have to create a new thread to stop plaguing the original one where I first talked about it. Is GBI compatible with "SuperCa...

Re: Game Boy Interface

I reported an issue that appears not to be GBI related at all, so I started a new thread about GBPlayer flascarts incompatibility instead of plaguing on this one.

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

I just received and tried my RF modulator and was wondering too: When trying WW in 480lines, the TV zooms it to full height, but when keeping the 576lines setting, I have the horizontal lines too. (Both forced to 720Px)

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

That makes more sense to play with Link less squished, and it works for the analog output and even in 4/3 too!

The dithering is a little ugliest, but it is ugly anyway.

This scaling makes small fonts look bad (Burnout2 menus), but it can still be read, and it isn't that noticeable in game.

Re: Snes9xgx: Freezing/Stuck at "Loading DVD" Swiss r845 with SD2SP2

I think I have already discussed this issue, but maybe not on these boards, unfortunately, I don't remember what fixed this. Try with just the device you use with it: no card in SD2SP2* if you intend to use the Gecko, and no Gecko inserted at all* if you intend to use the SD2SP2. ;) *keeping the SD2...

Re: Game Boy Interface

I thought GBI HF had to make the tradeoff of zoom ability for speed, but there seems to have a little possibilities. Take a look there , and compare with the GBI "regular" CLI, so you can make a GBIHF.cli then. Beware that it is highly recommended to have a GCVideo device updated to V3 and higher! H...

Re: Game Boy Interface

What's wrong with 480p? Trying to get 240p through digital output may lead to serious trouble, as very few devices support it. So there is an option in GCVideo to line-double 240p in order to output it as 480p for better compatibility, maybe you set it "on". With the regular GBI, you can zoom in and...

Re: Fried motherboard repair (zeldaxpro HDMI adapter)

No, the mechanical positionning of the block has to be done very precisely.

The spin motor doesn't start before the beam has detected a disc, so if the Laser i...

Re: UltraHDMI question

My bad If I took the Ultra HDMI for anothe N64 mod I've seen before, that just hooked to the analog signal. So there are many mods that make no sense. :D Many older consoles don't even have a DAC, and getting real digital data for display can be tricky, (when even possible), see the Atari 2600 mods....

Re: UltraHDMI question

RGB over Composite or s-Video is a big step forward, if you have a display that is good at RGB (and don't rely on any adapter), and can get rid of that crawling artifact due to composite video taken as Sync signal (LM1881 or 1980 are your friends at it). Then, going from RGB to HDMI won't be that hu...

Re: Scart cable to component mod possible?

No, you can't go straight from RGBs (where signal can goes through 4 wires) to YUV (where signal goes through 3 wires), you need at last some analog active chips. Don't cut the connector, find the female one to make an adapter to the display you want to connect to (BNC, sub-D HD15…), or buy a male N...

Re: GC dvd drive on PC?

I highly doubt it, disc drives refuse to read GameCube/Wii discs. The only reason those LG drives can work is because they're being fed debug commands to tell them to try and read after the drive believes that it has failed to read it properly. As a result, some of the data ends up in the drive RAM...

I wasn't aware of the ripping slowness even compared to the GC's performance at it, so it is definitely not worth it.

If storage room and/or money is not a problem, just keep it! If you don't want to keep so many cubes, sell those that you may feel are the less rare or with the less valuable chip/mod.

Re: Cube64/Not64 and SD2SP2

He was specifically asking for Majora's Mask, I talked about injection only to play the original "unaltered" N64 ROM.
Using the emu probably gives far more compatibility (Even if only partial with some games), and more flexibility/ease of use. ;)

Re: Best soft mod solution for Japanese consoles?

Someone told me the JAP WindWaker is not selling at such high price than in "roman languages", maybe an exploit is interesting, while you have to beware when trying to mix Asian and roman saves on the same memcard.
