Re: Burning discs for Xeno GC Mod

Although Nintendo never made official dl discs for the Gamecube, I haven't heard much about trying to read at least the first layer of one.

Re: Game Boy Interface

That sounds right, I don't think the Gamecube hardware can interact with the Game Boy Player hardware to identify the layers.

This modification was done by the shop where the previous owner bought it from. Lik-sang.com that no longer exists.
It seems to me that an unusual, exceptionally large, number of panasonic q's were modded. So many that it's almost become hazy whether or not they were official in some sense.

Re: Trying to install Swiss and GBI, but all I have are SDHC cards

Nintendo introduced SDHC support for Wii games in 2009. Years after the Gamecube SD adapter was released.
Still, yeah, Gamecube software can use SDHC if written to do so.

Re: Game Boy Interface

There is a way to configure the settings from a computer and then making it an autoboot file, or burning it to a regular memory card. Mine is inside of a modified Windwaker save on a regular 59 block memory card, which boots directly to GBI after pressing start after the game disk loads. An additio...

Re: Game Boy Interface

But that's not practical in its current state (no GUI for configuration) and no one outside of the GBI crowd actually wants to run any homebrew from a disc, because there's no good reason to do that. SD adapters are cheap and easy to use, and as long as you can boot into Swiss, you can have any set...

An SD adapter costs like $3.

Unless I'm mistaken, the issue with burning GBI by itself to a disc is that the console can't pass parameters to it.

Re: Newbie PAL Gamecube questions. Please help!

Swiss has better compatibility than other ways of forcing video modes.
I'm not familiar with which games are PAL optimized.

In my experience, it's not just PAL. People take for granted how many NTSC games also have to be forced for 480p.

Of course it's possible to emulate an SNES, but there's no way to intercept those signals without a GB emulator for GBA. And then you may as well just use mGBA.
Can the Gamecube emulate a GB and a SNES at the same time, smooth enough to be enjoyable?

No you can't do that, it's not worth it at all when you can just get a PAL unit or use GCvideo. The easiest you can do is get a PAL-N TV. Why you would want to run games in 50 Hz in the first place is beyond me. Well you made it sound like a PAL-N to PAL decoder exists. But that's way off topic. Ju...

Any mockups what this might look like? If bold enough to "internally" install a Wii drive in a GC... it'd look strange to say the least.

Re: Black and white video

Sounds like your region switch is wired either wrong or shorting. The switch is unnecessary with a XENO anyways as it makes the GC region free. I recommend removing the region switch and retesting. One caveat is Xeno doesn't switch system language. Swiss settings can help the fussy games, or of cou...

Re: Force the game to save in Memory card b slot.

I guess it's possible games could freeze when they find something in a memory card slot that is not a memory card.
Can't say I've heard of it happening though.
