Gamecube Broadband Adapter DIY?

Post by Zehle » Tue Dec 31, 2013 12:00 am

Hi there! :)

I recently found out that it is possible to play 8 players at Mario Kart: Double Dash if you use the NGC Broadband Adapter to connect two consoles.
I started searching for it and found out that it is rather rare and expensive so I wonder if it is possible to make your own solution to it, just wire it yourself?

Is there anyone out there who has opened it and taken a look at how it looks on the inside, if it is only a simple adapter between the NGC port and a modem cable or if it is more complicated?

Well, well, would be glad for answers!

There is a custom modem chip (Macronix mx98728ec), so it's not so easy..

maybe iggunr can take some close up shots since he has one with the case removed...
