Well I was just going by the FAQ. It said to keep quiet and pointed a gun at me.

I'll see about making a video here sometime, and there might be some Melee hacking people interested.

Just to answer your idea you have it is possible to keep megadrive v5 connected and the DVD drive you just take a power sander to the bottom drive port to get it almost flush with the motherboard then solder the v5 on. I'm waiting for mine to come but the motherboard is ready to go only thing I'm thinking about us how to disable the wasp so the DVD drive can take over maybe just a switch?

Yeah, a switch. As long as you switch power on either device it /should/ work. My idea however was to remove the connector from the mobo and solder a second v5 to it. It would just need the FFC connector to be reverted if you know what I mean.

That's not a bad idea but more megadrives more money. I'm trying to keep my cost down on my projects so my wife won't get involved. Well modding always has its reward and failure I have killed 3 ps3s just trying to downgrade them but after working on ps3s the GameCube is a walk in the park so far very easy to solder to. Not like the ps3 you want a challenge try downgrading one by soldering. That fucking nor clip never worked not once I bought 3 of them.

GC DVD port always supplies 5v to the connector...
you cannot have both DVD and WASP/WKF/WODE receiving power at the same time or else there will be data conflict....
both devices must have the ability to isolate power when not in use...else reroute all signals

BTW, guess where the 5v DVD power comes from...i think is was Tchay that showed us the voltage map of the mainboard....5v comes from the hidden later....not accessible without hardcore modding to sand away that area to connect a switch...
....but another solution does exist...

Well, the v5 uses external 3V anyway, as for the drive you can cut pins on the connector.

right...

cutting pins will isolate to allow use of a switch....
also the driveboard itself can be modified....cut the traces


any other ways??

Did you consider a combination of V5 & V6 (a new v7) and cutting the traces that are going from the DVD filters to the DVD connector?

The ScrewU product seems indexed as pretty heavy looking at the shipping rate. Is the weight correct?

Please note: International orders tend to overcharge on shipping calculations. However, a refund will be provide for the difference of shipping rate charged versus actual shipping cost for packages grossly exceding actual shipping value.
Considering it grossly exceeds the probable shipping price I assume you will be refunded the difference after mega has gotten the shipping quote from the post center.

40$ for shipping gc screws haha

Ah, right, missed that line. Really nice service to offer screws, I've been sleazy in the past. Hope to buy them with my next order.

Mmmmmm. When will motherboards be available Mega? Do you have enough stock to allow me to be picky and choose which rev's I'd like? I'm all set to order, but I'd like to get a few boards while I'm at it. Are all boards NTSC? Or will PAL be available too? :D

I am (i was...?) myself at Amibay.
For my first try to buy something, I "declared interest" in the selling thread,as it is asked.
The guy canceled the trade because i didn't answer to his mail within the... 24 hours.
Yes, you have 24 hours. We had some.. "words", a moderator came and told me that it was THE RULE. You know, the same kind of rule as Fight Club.
First rule of AmiBay : you have 24 hours.
Second rule of AmiBay : YOU HAVE 24 HOURS.

While here, it so easy to trade, people are trustful and understanding.
I have some trade here for very long time :D
