Re: DVD Issue After Wasp Fusion Install and Audio Streaming Question

I think I just found a picture to do this mod on the WKF for DVD streaming audio fix. I hope this is the right one. https://www.gc-forever.com/forums/download/file.php?id=967 Yes, that's the one, it should pass audio data from the real drive through to the GameCube. As for Swiss, I'll be building a...

Re: DVD Drive Emulator Question

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 b...

What does Swiss briefly display the video mode as prior to booting up the game as?

Re: Disc Backup causing disc read error.

You need to de-solder the red/brown wires from the DVD board (the same one where the laser POT is located), then undo all the flex cables and remove any screws from that PCB. Once that's all done, from the top side, push the plastic housing to one side and gently pry it all up to remove the laser+mo...

The LED on the USB board only functions when connected to a PC and the PC has correctly detected/enumerated the device.

Not sure, somewhere like gamefaqs.com would be a better place to ask a question like this or to read how it can be done.

All I know is ultimate spiderman had some nice virtual memory use :P

It looks like you'll just need Swiss in the correct spot on the SD memory card adaptor. Yep that SD card adaptor is fine too. Is there any sort of readme with Wii Swiss booter?

Swiss supports SDXC, and no this won't make any magical booting direct to it.

Re: Need Assistance - Swiss Via Wii HomeBrew and Lots of Questions

I haven't run Swiss on a Wii in years but there were these "Wii Swiss Booter" applications people used to make for it, I believe it would switch the Wii over to GameCube mode and then look for a .dol on a SD Gecko (plugged into one of the memory card slots) perhaps. The problem is that Swiss is writ...

I'm not too familiar with it as I've never had to do it but there are threads on this forum where it has been detailed many years ago, have a search to find one such thread. I believe the recovery ISO when written raw is meant to boot up to the original WBFS Wiikey Fusion menu after a reboot. The st...

Re: Disc Backup causing disc read error.

I will research how to replace a GameCube laser. I'm pretty competent in taking a GameCube apart, so I might be able to do that. Just be aware, laser replacements just don't want to cooperate sometimes, you might hit the jackpot and it works perfectly, you might also never be able to go back to you...

Re: How to debug Swiss?

Blocks definitely don't make a difference, the decoupling cap might but I've never really had problems until now with my cards (some Lexar 128GB card I bought, the GameCube hates it).

Re: How to debug Swiss?

You'll really need a USB Gecko to get very far in debugging anything. Unfortunately we're making the GameCube do things it wasn't meant to in game and the games that crash typically crash because they don't like what's happening (taking low sections of memory away, taking too long to load, etc).

I've had issues with 512GB Patriot / Lexar in my GameCube, need to investigate it more but something is up with those that it hates in-game (and seems to take longer to read in the file menu as well).

Re: Is this really a black screen of death?

It's certainly not a loss of video unfortunately since I used the same setup as my main gamecube (that is a jap model too). I send the audio directly to my hi-fi, so if it was a not supported video signal the audio should work anyway. When I get a black screen I don't lose the sync it's just a soli...

Re: Disc Backup causing disc read error.

Your laser is likely on its way out, but this can be prolonged if you're not using it for much other than booting Swiss or playing original discs.

Before it fails, do you hear the laser struggle to read a few times before giving out? I wouldn't rule out a bad burn but that seems unlikely.

Re: After swiss_r650 is upgraded by swiss_r650.fzn, insert the SD card black screen.

At what point are you seeing the black screen, immediately on power on? There's a recovery option whereby you need to write a recovery image raw to a SD card and insert that into the WKF/WASP SD slot. From there you'll need to make a WBFS SD card with a Swiss.iso on there and then finally flash anot...
