Re: Updating Pluto-IIx firmware to GCVideo 2.4b

I'm not a programmer, but this may point you in the right direction: https://github.com/ikorb/gcvideo/tree/master/Firmware From the bottom of that page it says: "To build the firmware, type make . You will need a Linux or other Unix system with GNU make, perl and ZPU gcc." FYI, there was another min...

Re: Media Player CE

I think it would be swell if the next mplayer update would support the wasp/wkf devices. Purely selfish request of course as I got one of the plug and play drive replacements sold by badassconsoles and think it would be neat to get that functionality from the cube. I don't know if the wasp/wkf, by n...

Re: Is anyone still working on FCE Ultra GX?

dborth attempted to address your request with the latest revision ~3.4.1 - January 4, 2019 @Sowden1 but unfortunately this revision no longer recognizes any controller input at all. I tried with a wired controller as well as a wavebird. I think dborth may visit this site so maybe things will work ou...

Re: Hu-Go! GX unofficial

Gave this build a try and can report that it successfully loaded and played some non-compressed roms from a fat32 formatted 64 gb sandisk sd card. I didn't get very fancy with the folder organization as found in smokemonster rom packs, just dumped a bunch of games in a "roms" folder inside the "hugo...

Re: Hu-Go! GX unofficial

Thank you. I'll give this try tomorrow and report back. If you get bored again could you look into refreshing the neogeo cd emulator? The last refresh works well but it could use some 16:9 correction support imho. Anyway, not a big deal, thank you for efforts and for providing a forum for the gamecu...

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

Hey gang just wanted to report in that the horizontal scaling feature recently introduced in the latest rev has done wonders to fill the entire screen of my early generation "4K'" (2160p max) Sharp brand TV. Before this the TV wouldn't scale the native 640x480 signal to fill the entire 16:9 screen. ...

Re: Thumbstick Replacements

Personally I like to use the wii's classic controller or classic controller pro thumbsticks as replacements. Here is some useful information that I don't think is common knowledge: This is based solely on my experience but the wii's numbchuck thumbstick is not a perfect fit for the wavebird c-stick ...

Thanks for the clarification Tueidj, scaling the display output to fill the screen on my TV is what I'm looking for. *edit* ~Nevermind I now see the error of my ways having found the relevant forum topic: https://www.gc-forever.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=3335 The link above is a good read for anyone...

Re: Swiss Nightly Build

Sorry to stray a bit from the current device overhaul bug-hunt but I have a question regarding a feature request. This question has already been asked in this thread about a year ago but I didn't see a reply. Would it be possible to adapt the nintendont feature to display games at 720x480 as opposed...

Re: Media Player CE

Well my viewing habits during my experimentation with the gamecube mplayer were mostly episodes of Young Justice, the occasional episode of House, the feature film Due Date (played like a Dream btw) and the All Star Superman movie. The intro to House would stutter a bit, and one of my early encodes ...

Re: Media Player CE

Your welcome, I found h264 with ac3 2 channel audio in an MKV container to be the right combination for me. Of course the resolution is limited to 640x480, at most. I realize there is room for improvement, for example I was thinking about experimenting with other less processor intensive audio codec...

Re: Media Player CE

Hi I wanted to share some Gamecube handbrake presets I cooked up ,that at one time, I had great success with viewing on the gc specific mplayer ce. The First is average quality, reasonable encode time... Just copy this info into a text editor and rename the file Gamecube.plist: <?xml version="1.0" e...
