Re: Gamecube battery keeps dying

No, it shouldn't be anywhere near the part of the board that the mod is installed to. Maybe it's just a coincidence and more related to age than the install job.

Re: Gamecube battery keeps dying

I've been using it for days now and it hasn't lost the settings yet since I repaired resistor R16. My problem was exactly like yours too, I think the reason that it would take nearly a day for it to loose the settings even though the battery wasn't connected to the IPL chip at all was maybe due to t...

Re: Gamecube battery keeps dying

I have the same issue after installing a GCdual and a Megadrive v1 plus WKF recently, just haven't had the time to look into it yet though so I can't really help. At least now I know that it more than likely has something to do with the GCdual install if you're having the same issue, I wasn't sure i...

Re: Megadrive v6 + WODE

eh, cool. In that case I'll definitely make point of watching it.

Although I haven't done any modding for a while I find this interesting because it was something that I tried in the past with no joy.

No pressure though, take your time mate.

Re: Megadrive v6 + WODE

Since you have the DVD port intact what would happen if you put the DVD drive in and wire a switch from the power wire going to the V6 (and WODE in your case)? Would it let you use both DVD/WODE not at the same time of course but would it cause a conflict. Like say if I had the same setup but with ...

Re: Using a PAL GameCube with NTSC games and RGB via SCART?

SNES and N64 would look like ass on a 70" TV, not to mention input lag and that's if the TV even accepts a 240p YPBPR signal. mega has a fair point about the Gamecube though... If you don't want to shell out for the expensive component cable then build the component cable replacement board that Unse...

Re: Wasp and rgb problem

The SRAM is non-volatile (powered by the battery), it holds all the settings like default language, sound mode, vertical and horizontal video offset, wavebird IDs etc... It also stores if 60Hz (for PAL) or Progressive (for NTSC) modes were previously used so games know to ask about them without nee...

That's some quality soldering, where you connected the 2 FCC cables together 8-)

Most people including myself would probably end up melting both FCC's trying that.

I also had problems getting Flat-mode to work. I ended up shorting the 150 ohm resitor in series with the POT and then turning the POT way down to between 40-90 ohms in the end. Although I didn't like taking the POT down that low I couldn't get it to work any other way. It could have been caused by ...

Nice work. It will be interesting to see where you put the rest of it. Fitting a WODE inside a GC is not the easiest task as there is not much room to play around with. As far as I remember the ripping feature will not work on the GC. If you need any tips with fitting the LCD board then let me know....

I never realized that the MEGA3 fitted so well into the back panel of an Icedcube case. Saves a lot of work chopping out a stock panel.

I'm no expert but I can't see why using digital audio would add any lag at all because: 1. If what you say is true and it does slow down the system by 100ms then control input would also be affected by the 100ms slowdown, after all it is part of the system also. This means that effectively there wou...

In all the research I've done, it seems the GC hardware can output 240p, but there absolutely no games released that offer that signal output. I can think of at least 2 releases, although officially emulated that output in 240p: Megaman X collection Zelda and Zelda II on the Zelda collectors editio...
