Re: Back to SDLOAD MENU without turn off the Game Cube.!!

IGR to SWISS, then run SDLoad from SWISS off the SD card.

Not sure why you would want to get back to SDLoad when you can just use SWISS.

Re: 1080i60 on 60Hz titles?

Thanks, it’s really a great option. It looks like progressive scan on my CRT - I think partly because the resolution is so high the interlacing is invisible. Does it work with all 60hz titles? At the TV broadcast beginnings, interlaced scan was thought of because of the CRTs specificities and flaws...

Re: Best GameCube Modding Pros in Greater Seattle

Unless you have a DOL-101 and want HDMI out and SP2 back, there's not much interrest in soldered hacks anymore.

Every interresting hard mod now exists in a solderless flavour, so you can open your own cube, and mod it by yourself.

Pretty sure v3 can't read SD cards off sp2, validate the working ay booting a fresh SWISS version off an SDGecko from which you may be able to read then.

Re: 1080i60 on 60Hz titles?

That's the limits of the Wii in terms of backwards compatibility.

SWISS is written with the GC in mind, it is the priority target.

I too, would have loved to be able to get 1080i output via Wii's component cable or any GCVideo device on the cube.

That adapter can probably be routed via SP2 as well, so the SP1 would keep free.

Re: Swiss settings: vertical offset

It's to adjust the lines where the frame takes place among the scan lines. It's more useful if you display on a line perfect device, without overscan, or if you want to properly capture the frame. The console has the horizontal offset adjustment integrated in the IPL. No clue about what the vertical...

Re: Normal Gamecube pricing

Prices tend to get higher and higher, you have to take into consideration what you may want to add to the setup if incomplete. For example, if there are valuable games, or two original controllers in good condition, that could save you 30~40 each for after. Beware of not getting a DOL-101 that may b...

Curious about this F-Zero-AX too, is it a Triforce hacked rom, or the GC hacked one? Has somebody "converted" a homebrew .dol to fake GC ISO so that you can have custom icon for that specific homebrew? That would be nice as long as SWISS doesn't support custom .dol icons (or does it alread...

Yes, it can be run from Swiss, that's the way I (scarcely) use it.

There are Raphnet's adaptors too, but I also hope they would make a 4 ports module for the console that allows connection of WiiU/Switch wireless controllers, and a module for the controller side that would allow to convert a Wired GC controller into a full-featured Switch's wireless one, with rumbl...

Happy to see there are specific aspect ratios for more games now, and that they seem to be able to be enabled/disabled in the settings.

Re: Game Boy Interface

If GBI can write to GCloader, I assume emGBA can as well, so you can backup your roms with GBI, then run them with emGBA.

You'd be just fine this way unless you want to use hardware features, such as link multiplayer gaming, or backup GB/C roms.

Re: [Not64] GameCube controller analog sticks are too sensitive

Typically what high level programmers tend to ignore.
To add to that, integer computation usually is dramatically faster than floating point one, to the point you can sometimes achieve the same in more operations but still less time.

Re: Virtual Memory Card corrupt?

You boot trough IPL (It's a setting of SWISS), press B not to straight launch the Game, then go to the Memcard manager and format the virtual memory card (pull off any memcard before, not to mess something).

Games can't format a memcard?

A SD adapter of any kind is worth it. And the only thing you need then.
You'll be able to try and save swiss and GBI settings. You'll save your lens by avoiding reading bad burnt discs and pot tweak. Also your time and money not having to bother finding right media and settings.

It may say to insert the first disc.

Flashing a firmware is a SoftMod anyways. :P

Chips are HardMods and not so many of them allow to run backups by themselves, you still need discs, it's a matter of media, and cartridge-based consoles allowed to run pirate copies/multirom carts without any modification too, so… :roll:

Re: [Not64] GameCube controller analog sticks are too sensitive

Sensitivity<>precision

If the stick hits the end of his race without getting to the ultimate value it is supposed to output, it is too precise.
If it outputs its max value halfway its race, it is too sensible.

The dead zone is usually stretched or shrunk along with such behaviours.

It is better to have the SD card adapter anyways, to keep settings saved at least (GBI and SWISS). GBI can be run off a memcard, SWISS will need a quite bigger one.
