Datel is in UK. I'm in Texas and it took about two weeks which was faster than I expected. Should arrive through USPS.

Re: DVD Playback

I just found out last night my Black Wii can't play DVD's though WiiMC :( Is there a program to enable DVD Playback on my Wii? Nope, BUT you can get a compatible USB DVD Drive and play movies through WiiMC and Wii backups through uLoader but it won't work with GC backups since none of the apps are ...

Re: how to store all your GC games on one SD card? 64gb sd e

Keep in mind that not all games will shrink. Also not all games that do shrink will actually shrink significantly. You may shrink a game and save only 20-30mb. If your talking about all of your favorite games that you play then you shouldn't have a need for more storage. Now if you mean most of the ...

Re: Hey all!

Get a Datel SD Media Launcher from the codejunkies website. It will run you $30 U.S as they charge $10 to ship from UK. It's the easiest most user friendly method for starters. The only modding you'll want to do is a POT tweak or as others call it a Laser Adjustment. It requires disassembly down to ...

Re: First timer here :P

Soldering guns or soldering pens aren't expensive. They can run from as low as $17 or so for a pen. You need a fine tip for the soldering points though. I tried doing this myself and I successfully got the chip to power but nothing more. I ruined a board but I have a parts cube I was able to use for...

Re: Where to buy 8cm DVD-R/DVD+R GC-compatible discs these d

I use Phillips mini DVD-R as I bought a 100pk on eBay for $36 and the price is usually around that most of the time. I didn't need them but I figured I'd try them out. I can also use the OEM gamecube game zipper cases I have with them. I did the pot tweak on 4 cubes to read them, all successful. I d...

Re: games freeze with swiss

Have you tried the problematic games shrunken and full sized 1.35gb? Some prefer to be full sized but not everyone has the same issues with the same games. But as posted before me, try burning to mini DVDs as you'll have better compatibility. More than likely you'll need a pot adjustment but I've be...

Re: Action Replay Question

Okay thanks. I tested it and it works so maybe I'll just sell it. I have no use for it as I have SDML as my homebrew and backup loading which seems easier than typing 20 lines of code for this to work for that. I don't use cheats either so I really haven't any use for it.

Action Replay Question

I'm unfamiliar with action replay and I've never used it before on any console. I know what it does from research and that some versions are rare. I bought some items off eBay and it came with it. Do I have a rare version? You can put in your own codes on the one I have. I see a v1.06 but is that wh...

Re: Show off your Cube!

Alright. Some of you may of seen a post where I asked about the XCM bottom half. Of course these are hard to find so I decided to use the Indigo bottom and a DOL-003 Nintendo controller to match. I also changed the "C" stick to match the analog one. The Viper logo was peeling off so I made my own st...

Re: Good full size DVDs for gamecube?

I've used Sony, Gigaware (RadioShack brand), TDK, and Phillips (mini DVDs). All DVD-R, and basically I'll use what I can find on sale. Doing a POT tweak to get them all readable was fun. But I did on 3 GameCubes. The other brand I use (haven't tried for GC) is Memorex. Most commonly on sale where I'...

Re: Gamecube disc window and custom led - few questions

An acrylic cutting bit for a rotary tool (like a dremel) will cut perfect little circles. I never found a good way to mount the acrylic circle into the gamecube shell. My best efforts had me cutting the circle just a little smaller than the gamecube jewel and using a silicone sealant or thick CA gl...

Re: WiiMC (Wii Media Centre)

I love this app. My favorite is that I can backup my DVD collection to my hdd retaining the menus and special features etc., and WiiMC can play it as if I was watching it from the disc. No need to burn my backups.

Re: Name that Gamecube thing.

I think it's a promotional stress reliever. They made them like the gamecube and gameboy advance. Basically vinyl coated foam.

Re: GameCube Full Size DVD Top

I've seen listings that showed they once could be ordered with the bottom. They aren't available anymore of course. I've been mulling over my idea of making a black and clear with matching controller. I figured the bottom would be hard to find, though I thought I'd ask.

GameCube Full Size DVD Top

Okay so I recently found a Clear Viper top on eBay (has the LEDs on top) and it didn't come with the bottom part. Does anybody know where I can find the clear bottom for this? If not I'm considering just getting an indigo/clear controller and a black controller so I can make a Black/clear controller...
