Re: Alternative to Hori Gameboy Player gamepad?

I'm looking for a controller to play competitive Tetris, since the gamecubes' ones are not good at that, you sometimes don't feel when you push for diagonals. Also, playing with the SNES emulator feels so awkward with the GC's buttons setup. What about a Wii Classic controller adapter and a Snes Min...

Re: Wind Waker Hack for GC

No, if you name GBI just GBI.gci, there is a way it can be on the same MC than SWISS as Boot.gci. But you don't have to be confused between "brosexecauto", which is the little boot.gci that boots Autoexec.dol (that can be a Swiss.dol renamed as such) from a SD card in a SDGecko/WiiSD, and the Swiss....

Re: SDgecko DIY slot inside gamecube

I'm resurrecting this topic since I just disassembled my purple GC to de-yellow its gray faceplate (the rest of the case will follow, but I already have a gameboy in the bath). So I saw that there is room enough to put an SD card reader and even a micro-SD one (both at the same time even possible) i...

Re: Wind Waker Hack for GC

If you want a single memory card and have room enough, you can put Swiss as Boot.gci, and both GBI.gci, and swiss.ini (saving from swiss choosing Memcard slot A for config saving). Swiss is around 88 memory card blocks in the current version if I remember well. If it is only for GBI, put it as Boot....

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

Maybe your games run well off SD, if this is the case, you won't have to switch discs, just have to backup your games on the SD in a SD Gecko or WiiSD.
I understand now why you want a modchip, but if you can't get one to work, hope the SD backup will do just fine.

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

Do the region switch first, get a US copy of Wind Waker, maybe a WiiSD too, then see if getting a chip is worth it. WW is not cheap these days, but maybe the faster exploit, there are some other exploitable games that are less sought for, 007AUF for example, but while the hack will only take 3 block...

Re: Flakey dvd drive

I know laser fail is comon on the GC, but try first to pull dust out with a very soft and clean paint brush, blow it with air in can, then, check for the grease along the full stroke of the lens on its worm screw and guide. If you get no better result, then you may adjust the laser power by lttle st...

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

The zone is already the required one, so better then debating for hours if it should or shouldn't work, it is just about slapping a disc into that Q, to check if Pal DVDs will playback on it. :roll: It will just work, or won't, but this won't harm the hardware anyway, we'll then definitely know. :P ...

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

For the DVD video Playback, aren't you in the european Zone 2?
Japan is in that zone too, so it should just work. 8-)
Isn't that good news?

Re: Gameboy Player ROM issues

Hi, something must be wrong with your memory cards setup. 1: You should be able to run GBI from the same memory card as SWISS. 2: You should be able to run the GBP Startup Disc ISO dump from it as well. 3: You should be able to launch the GBP Startup Disc Backup DVD too. Do you run SWISS from a Memo...

Re: I finally bought a Gamecube!!!

Welcome, if you want to lenghten the laser life, you can use SWISS as much as possible, and run most of your games' backups off an SD card. You can also try to clean the lens the better and step the laser adjustment down the lower possible before it can't boot (and run your games that won't work fro...

Re: What modcip works in panasonic q?

The gamecube motherboard in the Panasonic Q is essentially the same as in a regular Dol-001 Gamecube. So any GC modchip should do, and the solder pads are not differently placed, making guides for the GC still valid for the Q. If you do the region switch, the Q will act as a NTSC-US GC, thus format ...

Re: BBA Cloning

There are some Ethernet and Wifi devices designed to work in SPI mode with Arduinos, Raspis and other trending SBCs that are basically a MCS core and a dedicated communication core packed in one chip. Some of them may be reprogrammed to support the specific protocol that the GameCube and BBA use. Or...

Hi there, what's wrong with the GC, what did lead you to think U11 doesn't work?
Does the mainboard suffers from moist, dirt or electrolyte leaks?
