I'm definitely interested in trying one out once you get some out for testing. What kind of price are we looking at to test?

The amount of available test boards is probably going to depend on cost per board and total cost. I have not looked into that yet.
Have you thought about reaching out to companies like SAG or Game-Tech to see if they can help you identify manufacturing partners for small batch runs? P.S. Please put my name in the raffle hat for the beta testing phase :lol:

Could you open it up to a pre-pay thing? I know i wouldn't mind pre-paying, assuming this will have the same features as the eventual release board, to be able to help with the testing. I like the debugging/testing phase of projects like these though, probably due to conditioning as a software dev.


Probably posted about my interest before, but i cant remember which if my older emails i used so yay new account xD

This project looks amazing, keep up the great work. Also, I would love to be a tester if the price is reasonable!

Meneerbeer are you able to give another update? Seems like there is plenty of interest in supporting the testing, have you considered using a crowd sourcing platform to manage orders and fund the rest of your development, production and distribution?

I’m as excited as the rest of these guys who have been looking for a WASP Fusion chip and are too late to the party.

Please set up a Kickstarter & take my money!!! 8-)

I've been following the GC hacking and modding scene for over a decade now, and this is the most excited I've been in a long, long time. I didn't have money back when the WODE, WASP, etc. were available, and I wish very desperately I could have something like this. I very much look forward to the day this is available. Here's to hoping it's not vaporware.

Not really as it is still very grey area. I doubt Kickstarter would allow these kinds of products that promote using 'backups'. 8-)

Call me a pessimist but it's starting to feel like this is no longer happening?

Project is not dead, just challenging to combine with life. There should be an update eventually.

I just made an account to keep up with this, i look forward to updates and a more robust system than swiss, which while great is a long way off from being 99%. i missed out on the wasp fusion, jukebox wode and the wiiKey, so this is very promising!

In my (likely biased) opinion, I'd hope this can be integrated into Swiss too so it can benefit from video patches/etc and so that there isn't another similar tool spun off trying to do mostly the same thing in that regard.

I have already added support for my ODE to my local Swiss repository. I am actually very happy with Swiss. This saved me tons of time and it has many more features than I will be implemented myself.

So far I have only added the basic functionality, such that you will be able to boot games. I haven't looked into patches yet. I hope someone will be able to help with that once this product gets released. :)

It sounds to me you are mainly having problems with playing games through the memory slot using Swiss. This should no longer be an issue with an ODE.

I just made a account so i can keep updated on this.

if you do not want to start a Kickstarter, why not set up a patreon.

Not copying and pasting, but I too just created an account to follow along. I've stumbled across this thread a few times and keep checking every now for progress updates! Looking forward to the eventual release!
