Re: IDE-EXI new batch

I had been helping with the case design from the initial stages. All of the "clamshell" versions felt a bit... soft, on the top half. The early prototypes I have here would not survive being walked/stepped on. As for the SATA option I agree with MegaIO 100%. Though I think we should group together a...

Re: Wii Key Fusion "3.0" Clone in a Gamecube

You do realize i have pretty bad short term memory problems, and you should be well aware of my personal "life issues" at the moment (megaIOManiac). Cut me some slack buddy, right now I dont even have a home to call my own. I am trying to make due with borrowed space and borrowed time. I do have a t...

Re: Wii Key Fusion "3.0" Clone in a Gamecube

Information overload, but in a good way. I have been spending more time on the Wiki and, well, this was the issue: http://www.gc-forever.com/wiki/index.php?title=Using_a_Wii_drive_replacement_on_a_GameCube#Making_the_connections_between_the_systems - the links for the FFC Breakout boards are broken....

Re: Wii Key Fusion "3.0" Clone in a Gamecube

I have been doing my homework since my last post. But still no real answers. From what I gather the FFC is a 32 pin 0.5mm pitch. But I still have no resources on what kind of connector hooks to it. I will be browsing various part vendors like Molex to see if they have anything suitable. I see some g...

Re: Wii Key Fusion "3.0" Clone in a Gamecube

Would anyone be willing to link to a few URLs that have detailed information on hooking up a Wii Drive Emulator to a GC? From what I have put together via various sources, you dont need to hook up the original drive to the WKF modchip and can run entirely from the SD Card dongle. I know the WKF was ...

Wii Key Fusion "3.0" Clone in a Gamecube

I have been wanting a Wii Key Fusion for my driveless Gamecube to get it back to life. I have seen info on getting the original WKF devices working on a GC with some serious soldering and modding needed which I am quite comfortable doing. However, I can only find WKF 3.0 Clones available for sale. C...

Re: Possible to make a BBA Style IDE-EXI?

There may be a bit of confusion here. When I mean "GBA Player" I mean modding the original and retaining the GBA Player functionality. There is not enough room inside to add a USB-IDE bridge. You aslo need to cut away quite a bit of structural supports and screw posts. The idea of an "IDE-EXT Player...

Re: Possible to make a BBA Style IDE-EXI?

The BBA/Modem slot does have a 12V bus. As of this posts' date MegaIOManiac is making a new batch of IDE-EXTs and we have been discussing the potential of a "GBA Player" style which does seem to be entirely possible. With some help of my buddies over at the BSoDtv community we should be able to whip...

Possible to make a BBA Style IDE-EXI?

Well the topic asks it all. I am an avid hardware hacker and always loved mucking about with my game consoles. I have a few spare Cubes' I would like to dust off and play around with. My in-use GC Is pimped out with a ViperGC Extreme with USB expansion. I dont think my memory serves me correctly but...
