Greetings.
I am from Brazil and I have gamecube since I bought the mega zelda collection. It came with a Luigi and a 259 block memory card. Complete, I just had to buy a transformer, because Brazil 80% of the power is 220 volts.
I still like it and there are many games that I won't have originals. Brazil salty for games.
The Swiss are very, very important to us from Brazil. Today I can play many titles that were not available in Switzerland.
I hope to help in some way, I know you will reach an impressive level of Swiss compatibility.
Thanks to emu_kidi, megalomaniac and all those I can't name, all those who are involved in GC forever. :geek:

Hi! And welcome, what do you call the Zelda Mega Collection?

You are in a 110V area and got a GC with a 220V Transformer? Too bad all the country isn't unified, while with newer PSU it doesn't really matter anymore. Also, I guess people may have 220-110 or 110-220 transformers handy for that kind of situations, no?

It's sure, with the many sources for ISOs, and increasing SWISS compatibility reading them from SD cards, the choice is better than ever!
Maybe you can even find Portuguese localisations among EUR ISOs, if you ever mind to play in this language.

I live in Brazil and I can confirm the importance of Swiss here. God only knows how much time I spent burning DVDs. And welcome.

Maybe he is talking about Collector's Edition. It was very popular here. I only discover other compilations well later.

Transformers are very easy to find here. It's like buying bread. In my region is 110V and in the past was very common accidents related to voltage.

No, here in Brazil an area is predominant at 220 volts, my cube is 110 volts in the USA.
BRA 220volts is more salty, you should import here to have less expenses. Strange, but it's Brazil.
There was a promotion on the console, luigi + memory card and edition zelda collector majoras mask etc. wonderful.

This game may freeze randomly. Disabling the rumble function is said to decrease the chances of this happening. There is something that always helps and it's kind of obvious: Always make a copy of the progress after saving the game.

I find it strange when someone complains that they need to restart the cycle of days to try to accomplish a task again. Just needed to make the copy ...

I found this or the reason for it. Wearing a speed mask (rabbit) can cause fainting when moving from one area to another.
Wearing the speed mask to leave the last temple will always be frozen. increasing the 4 megabits generates errors in this game, even in the original DVD collection ...

I always suspected that the problem is caused by the audio stream. One day I will try to start this game without these files.

I remembered that Ocarina can also freeze. But it is very rare to happen. You would need to complete a specific task and go to a specific temple as well.

I never came across an ocarina bug in any mega collector ,,, but majora really weighs more for the emulator ...

Hola Diego e bemvindo,

Lembro que Nintendo nao era tao popluar no Brasil, entao voce deve fazer parte de 1% dos jogadores que gosta de gamecube mesmo.

I was looking at the games' languages codes and don't find any that gives Portuguese as an option, did you ever get some games in this language, or are you always stuck to playing in english, spanish, or whatever language that is not Portuguese anyways?
Do the US NTSC games often offer alternatives to english for South America languages?
