Re: WIP - GC wiikey fussion modding, pictures and worklog

Make sure in the lense to have the slot as far forward and flush as possible. Also fill the extra gap in the lense slot with some black sacrificial plastic otherwise your sd card can easily fall inside the case. I ordered just one pcb, broke it many times in many different ways, fixed it every time....

Re: Solid blue led on wkf: completely dead?

Yeah I said this in the other thread. My wiikey fusion had a solid blue light and crashed during the verify part of updating to 1.5 firmware too. I redid my soldering and all these problems magically went away. You may have connections to the right spots but maybe something is bridged somewhere.

All I know is older builds don't have this problem so I don't think it's an issue with my hardware.

Re: WKF Autoboot discovered

I found the culprit firmware killing file. I loaded only "swiss_r221(pal).fzn" on a sd card, run it in swiss and it says "firmware file found will flash that too". This is the stupid file that kills autoboot when you try to update to it. Is it safe to use the ntsc version instead? I've had good succ...

Hi, I can't get metroid prime running on my swiss. I'm using swiss r221 with the 1.0 wiikey fusion firmware. Autoboot works, most games run, but metroid prime doesn't. Yes, I do own an actual metroid prime disk so hopefully this isn't frowned upon. I'm sure the .iso I'm using is good I used it befor...

All files you need are here to get started: http://www.gc-forever.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=1281&start=84 This includes the flasher file as well as the files to downgrade the firmware. Don't bother with wkf_10_restore that will bring your wkf back to default everything. Once you have swiss on ...

Re: MegaCube - worklog

Oh crazy, so the panasonic version you can't plug in the gb player? *looks at pictures*, nope, plastic on the bottom. Does it have the expansion port on that pcb?

So it seems megalomaniac uses the chips found on the official gc component cords. Darn, I was hoping for a fpga solution, oh well.

Re: WKF Autoboot discovered

did you use the latest Swiss to do this? there was one version that would "find" the "file" (really it didn't find anything) and would flash garbage. Doing this causes a restore to occur internally on the WKF and if you previously had 1.5 on there, I believe it may have restored that. Boot up Swiss...

Re: WKF Autoboot discovered

fzn = menu = swiss fzn.fw = firmware all you need is swiss.fzn to update swiss versions... That's the only file that was on the sd card, the .fzn and it still said it found the firmware and updated it to something that wouldn't auto load. *edit* Nevermind it worked, guess I did something wrong the ...

you really need a component cable to bring out the best video quality GC and Gameboy Player have to offer Gamecube games are super sharp on my tv from the gamecube, it's only gb player stuff that's blurry. Since regular gamecube games are nice and crisp the culprit isn't the s-video circuit. Probab...

Re: WKF Autoboot discovered

You can autoboot r221, you just have to remove the .fw file and flash only the .fzn from a valid autoboot setup That's exactly what I tried. The stupid thing still somehow found a firmware file in the .fzn and killed the autoboot. Then I had to solder the temporary sd gecko back on just to revert t...
