Re: I want to make duplicates of Panasonic Q parts...

I'm not familiar with Panasonic Q, or the ability/quality of cast-ed parts, but Rose colored gaming has some SLA 3D printed replacement rails. I believe it's the same rails you guys are talking about. Quite expensive IMO, but might give those who are looking at this some ideas, and possibly differen...

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

I can't seem to get the Swiss to load. I bought an SD Media Launcher from Datel. It's been known that the SDML adapter it comes with is crap and doesn't get recognize. The 2GB card should work, make sure it's FAT formatted, try the tape fix by putting a piece of tape under the circuit board of the ...

Re: Do Gamecubes (DOL-001) without Digital AV exist?

It's definitely a case swap, the rear panel color is supposed to match the rest of the console. I'm not saying this statement is wrong, DOL-001 had matching rear panel color (at least the common colors ones). But I don't recall seeing a platinum(silver) or indigo(purple) rear panel color on the DOL...

Re: what Cable stickning out?

That shielded FFC looks familiar to the ViperGC. Comparing pictures it looks like it's 14pins which fits the ViperGC/Extreme. This assumption is correct if it is running cobra. It's to be use in conjunction with a programmer to update the chip.

Qoob Pro and WKF looks like 12pin.

Re: will sunkey fusion work with megadrive v3?

Despite fusion being in the name, it isn't a Wiikey Fusion clone or ODE. It's a Wii drive chip and a fusion of "Wii-Clip + D2Sun + Sunkey all-in-one" (Solderless clip + Solder chip + Solderless inline chip). It's not what you want. The sundriver (ide/sata hdd wii ode) from them might work. If you fi...

Re: Component assistance (basic problems)

Samsung likes to use those TRS/TRRS connectors like emu_kidid's picture. If you have the yellow in the green connector and not get a picture, it's just possible the TV doesn't support the NTSC video format.

Re: gamecube component cable short. need advice.

I have to agree, I tried to save a molded strain relief piece once and I tried drilling/melting a hole to slide over the cable and it was a huge pain and that was a relatively short area. There's quite a few people converting the cables, I'm sure you can find some images of what others have done. Th...

Re: Swiss Compatable SD cards

I had no problems with the orange Samsung Evo Miro SDXC cards at 64GB and 128GB.
Had problem with G.Skill 64gb Miro SDXC, freezes when loading.

Tested these about half a year ago, not sure how compatibility/cards have changed.

Looks identical to Ashen image, besides the exclusion of the INT line which he said it may not be needed. And the fact that you labeled a picture of a mirrored image of the underside of the motherboard.

I suppose there isn't enough demand for them to be spending all that money and time, maybe the infectus 2 being a Multi-Platform tool could be programmed to do similar, has a similar chipset on it. We don't have the source code of the fusions, and they are most likely have copy protection enabled. ...
