Re: XenoGC fork

This is great news! Is the code commit-worthy? What did you change to get it to work?

Re: IDE-EXI new batch

I'm no hater, but what's the advantage to using an IDE-EXI as opposed to an SD card with an SDGecko?

Re: SDGecko Support in Dolphin Emulator

Thanks for the warning Mega, that makes a lot of sense. I suppose if I hit a road-block I can look at getting a USBGecko. I'll just have to do it the way I used to on Atmel: with a lot of print statements.

Emu_Kidid, I'll try that. Thanks!

SDGecko Support in Dolphin Emulator

Hi Guys,

Can anyone point me to how to emulate an SDGecko (SD Card adapter) in Dolphin? I would love to use Dolphin for initial development because I don't have a USBGecko. Does anyone know if this is possible?

Thanks.

Re: XenoGC fork

That's a good point, an open-source drive-chip would provide more functionality. I am most interested in this because it's my current setup, although it would be nice to provide an upgrade to people who already have Xenos.

Re: XenoGC fork

I have started to look into compiling from source as a viable option again. Also, my company just bought a couple of logic analyzers, so that should make snooping on the flashing code much much easier. :)

Re: Gamecube component cable

Maybe this is a part of your plan already, but a Coaxial digital audio plug (RCA style) would be cheaper and easier than optical. That being said, my familiarity with such things is limited. From my perspective, I am comfortable modding my Cube, not terribly interested in digital audio, and am inter...

Re: XenoGC fork

I had a brief chat with the original author. he says that the mn102 code can block the ppc since it masks interrupts whilst it does stuff I think I finally understand that. The code I had for DVD_CallFunc() only cleared some existing interrupts (dvd[0] = 0x14) because I didn't understand what I was...

Re: XenoGC fork

I have an update on XenoFlash. Much of the drive functions are working. We were having an issue where once the flashloader has been transferred into the MN102 memory, the program would check a specific part of the memory and it would not return properly. While debugging this, i put a print statement...

Re: XenoGC fork

Emu, The Author was using "DVD_SetDebugMode();" which you had broken down into "DVD_SetDebugMode1();" and "DVD_SetDebugMode2();". Given their use of some of your other DVD functions I am assuming this is the same function. It looks like this is Unlock 1 and 2; since we're not reading off the DVD in ...

Re: XenoGC fork

I found the answer, it was hiding in YAGCD (5.7.2). Here's the updated code: void DVD_CallFunc(u32 fnAddress) { dvd[0] = 0x14; //DEINT clr, TCINT clr dvd[1] = 0; dvd[2] = 0xFE120000; dvd[3] = fnAddress; dvd[4] = 0x66756e63; dvd[8] = 0; dvd[7] = 1; } I'll be implementing and committing this later on ...

Guys, I am working on porting XenoFlash to libOGC and thankfully I am making some headway into understanding the code.

Development IDE

Hey guys, What IDE does everybody use? I had been reading source through Notepad++ which is great for syntax highlighting but that's certainly a sub-optimal program for development. I have been liking NetBeans lately, but I didn't see a plugin for devkitPPC so that led me to Eclipse + Wiiclipse. Has...

Re: XenoGC fork

@emu_kidid, Thanks for doing the clean-up in r9.

I am really hoping to do the XenoFlash libogc port but I know it will be slow so if someone else would rather do it please go ahead.

Thanks!
