Re: Swiss Nightly Build

I am having an issue with Nightly Build R321. I am booting swiss via WKF with mega v4 games work fine with WKF but when I attempt to load a game from ide-exi, it gives me an error "Too many patches enabled memory limit reached". IDE-EXI does work using an old version of swiss r253 on another cube. I...

Re: GCVideo DVI Internal mod

I would definitely be interested in one. I've got good soldering skills, and would love to do some testing for it.

Re: Dreamcast

Yeah I do have the visio bios installed for the ide and I was able to boot dreams hell but never saw the HDD. I am using a flashable bios chip from assemblers.

Re: Dreamcast

Sorry for no updates on this. I just got frustrated and gave up after starting from scratch 5 times and not getting any signs of life. Not saying it doesn't work just saying its apparently something lost in translation from the Russian websites I was trying to work from. hopefully someone with more ...

Re: Dreamcast

Okay so I think I may have figured out some of my problems. Reading through some of the Russian translated comments it seems as though you need a modified bios for this to work. Luckily I have a flashable bios chip coming in the mail. So once it's installed I will try again.

Re: Dreamcast

Okay I've got back to the point of it trying to read through the sata adapter, but the ide HDD I have is apparently dead so I'm going to hit some thrift stores tomorrow in search of an ide drive. At least now I think my pin out is correct.

Re: Dreamcast

Well I got another snag. I used an 80 pin ide so I just used the odd number cables since even are ground. Bad thing is I may have that backwards because the Dreamcast did nothing. But I'm not giving up I'll try again tomorrow. At least by the time I make this work maybe I can tell everybody what not...

Re: Dreamcast

I was I little bit worried about the cable length. So I figured I would try the ide route just to start from ground zero. I have the cable hooked up now. Just need power and I'll be ready to try again.

Re: Dreamcast

Thanks Benni for the advice, I didn't think about it maybe being cable select. If I change the jumper it does nothing. Since you brought it up in going to try it in my Xbox and see how it works. Do you have a specific adapter you can recommend that had worked well on Xbox?

Re: Dreamcast

Well I got something at least. I finally found some docs on my adapter. I jumpered two pins and now dreamshell finds a drive! But it also locks up. I think for now I will go with an old ide drive and cable just to make sure it works before I spend money on another adapter.

Re: Dreamcast

yeah it is SATA HDD > IDE adapter and does work on my computer it's just that it can only be run as master I tried it with a dvd rom on the same cable and it only works when dvd rom is set to slave. But it was the cheapest one I could find so I wasn't expecting much.

Re: Dreamcast

Okay so I specifically purchased a sata to ide that says it's capable of putting drive in slave mode. But now that I read reviews they all say the same thing. No slave mode! But when plugged in I do get a conflict. So something is happening. Tomorrow I'm going to switch to just and ide drive and cab...

Re: Dreamcast

Okay so I'm back home and I got some parts in. I don't know if it will work but I figured I might as well go straight for something that will be sure to frustrate me. Got a cheap sata to ide adapter. Wish me luck.

Re: Dreamcast

I don't know if compatibility has got much better. I've been using the SD to serial to load isos for a while now. Stock iso does not work they have to be patched. But it's kind of like Swiss they are always updating. I also got lucky and I am on the waiting list for an gd-emu that replaces the gd ro...
