My cubes are kinda boring.

And the spicy one only boots DVDs, no Freeloader or ARs for it.

Is that a SNES top half on a Hori GB Player controller?

Very clean looking GameCube, nice to see :) I'm too used to buying battered and sun bathed NTSC-J consoles lately since they're the only ones I can find at a sane price, it's been a while since I've seen such a clean Indigo GameCube!

P.S. I believe you meant 10 years too late ;)

i meant i'm late 2 years because the last post before mine was in 2018. but i agree with you, 10 years late makes a lot more sense. lol

i had a really nice platinum cube, mint condition, unmodded, cib. so nice that i didn't have the courage to mod it. so i sold it for a good price here in brazil and bought this indigo cube for much cheaper, before the current pandemic prices.

it was dirty, had dead internal battery, the controller had loose analog sticks. but nothing that a magic sponge, retrobrite, some mods and restoration couldn't fix.

glad to know it looks good, thanks!

Being in Brazil, are these DOL-002's? Do you know if Brazil had any other variants?

nope, my silver one was USA, my indigo is JAP.

afaik, the first batch sold in brazil by Gradiente was imported and actually DOL-001's. that's what i've been told, but i could never check if that's a fact or fiction. all the following ones were produced/assembled by Gradiente were named DOL-002's.

as i'm not a collector and actually new to the gc scene -- i purchased my first one in jan 2020 -- i tried to avoid those because an eon gchd mkii seller told me it was not 100% compatible due to the different brazilian bios. so i didn't want to risk my money to know if he was right or not. ;)

Post-launch titles crash when switching to progressive scan mode on a PAL-M system, but Swiss fixes that.

GCVideo-DVI also struggles with PAL-M. Before it was off-center, now you have to turn off fix resolution to get anything.

You may have found here someone that would have been glad to trade one for an NTSC, either for the sake of collection completeness or technical documentation. :mrgreen:

Extrems> It would be nice to see a Dol-002 dedicated thread, to debunk some interrogations, such weirdness in having a console that only plays NTSC games and only outputs in PAL-60 (which is quite off-standard). :roll:
Finding a TV to accept that may have been quite a quest on its own. :? Did they have the RF adaptors too? :mrgreen:
DMG/MF OC, AGB/SC miniSD, NTR/NeoMK3, USG/flashme V8/SC miniSD
DOL001(EUR)/RGB/GCPlug/GBP/SD2SP2, RVL 001(EUR)/RGB/CMP/WiiSD

Zelda WW with Tingle Tuner in split screen was what the GC RF modulator was made for! (Video)

NTSC systems are equally able to output PAL-M.
