Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Yeah the point it to reduce any additional components. Even is a disc spoofer was made I would still rewire the ffc port directly to the via's because I'm going to cut it off. More work yes but the point of this trimming is purely for development to see how small it can be made. As for the wiimote. ...

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Wii cIOS works by initializing the discdrive then loading in the iso to boot the game. Then after that there is no communication with the discdrive (hense why I can remove it and the game still plays). But it seems there must be a discdrive present for the boot up. The right signals need to be sent ...

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Just spoke with Fix94 on gbatemp irc and it seems it might be possible for the disc check in wiiflow to be removed however he says that he hasn't been active with wiiflow in 2 years and that to remove it is not easy. He didn't comment yet on if he will bother trying so might never happen. I'll be in...

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Yeah I was also thinking about that but I doubt it would be possible and still work. I assume it is needed to check for the disc and insert the iso when it is reading from discdrive.

Where can I find FIX94?

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Good idea! Just check it. Loaded a wii game via wiiflow with a wasp modchip connected and game boots up fine. Then in game I carefully removed the modchip ribbon cable from the wii. Game kept running and was fully playable. Even when I press home buttons and reset game title it just boots the game l...

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Thanks for the info. As far as I know only wii loaders do a disc check. Gamecube loaders like nintendont work perfectly fine without a anything connected to the discdrive port. I also believe it to be a set of pins that have to be either pull up or down voltages wise to make the wii think it has a d...

Re: Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

Yeah you only need to connect the disc drive mainboard and you are good to go. A wasp will work aswell. But the whole point is to not connect anything so I can make the board smaller and cut away unneeded components.

Wii Disc drive spoof. Need help Emu_kid/Mega/Ashen???

So I am busy with a tiny wii board cut. As of yet I have been able to cut it pretty small while still retaining all of it's functions. Also been able to power it off a custom regulator, 3.3v and 1.2v. See my facebook album for pics on the discovery. https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.93834114...

Thanks guys!! No your hands won't cover because you don't wrap your hand around the back. Only a few fingers might get close to the vents.

I have played on this thing for hours on end and have had no issues whatsoever.

Re: Cloning the GameCube component cable

I'm afraid I don't have any tools to analyze the signals. I'm going to flash another board I have and try it on a different n64 and see what happens. Good to know that I'm safe with the way it's wired up right now. Once I have sorted out everything I'll post my results. @Mega have you already tried ...

When I load donkey kong I get a white screen then it boots up with a video signal and then after the Rare logo it goes back to a white screen aga...

Re: Cloning the GameCube component cable

Yes I can confirm that it is working identical to the original MX chip. On PAL and NTSC console. I have tested almost all my games, homebrew etc.. and it works the same. Quality is the same as far as I can see with my bare eyes and it will also works with only 1 ground line. I have it connected now ...

Holy crap!!! This is some awesome shit!!! Time to make some of these for myself. Thank you so much for sharing all your files and info. :D

Could you also make a pic of the back of the board? Just to get a clear image of what the total setup looks like.

Re: Research on output progressive signals by MultiAV Port

Hmm interesting information. How have you wired up the gamecube to your monitor? Have you got a sync splitter on the composite line wired to c sync? or have you wired it directly? Maybe a bit more accurate information on you hookup would be great. I have also realized the same thing that the multi p...

Going with the wii drive will make things easier. I will also be using a older style wiidrive which wil ...
