new hardware/sofware update and more image details aded
well, this upgreade "fuked" a lot the external box, so it is now more dirty and horrible, but it also can make another things:
ok , first, i replaced the default monoaural speaker from the screen to 2 stereo ones, you can see the resuls.
and left one
i also midified a little some case purposes like the cooler output hole. and power switches
i also modified the right control panel, and aded stereo headphones port and moved this fuse location due space problems and parts accesibiity.
i also aded a new feature, the audio/video in conectors go directly to the second screen chanel , and i can switch main system and av in easly with one key.
well this is the charger in, it really need to be charged before rock/n/roll because it need a lot of power to work , and the charger only have 500 ma
(the battery will be charged better and the battery life will be longer with the slow charge)
well, this is also a new purpose, this is the qoob chip usb programer port, and the rj45 lan port, i moved the original cube lan port to outside the main plastic box, the rj45 port is very useful for download something with the linux inside the cube and it be able to create a remote hard disc for the cube on a remote pc (the gc donÂ´t have hdd by default ^^)
it also can host a web site or load executables (.dol) by the lan port and another usefull purposes
due i lost the rf antena addon, and the video output need be "jumpered" when the video cable is not connected, i created this regulator, it allow modify the video power and adjust it to get the best image resluts,i also moved the original dvd case lid switch the outside, it is under the black adhesive.
well, the diferences are more visible now, the box is really dirty and chaotic, i had problems with the old acic batery (it has a little acic drops inside the box ,and it fuked one qoob and some cables, but the another modules survived, lol
. then i replaced the batery by a sealed one, and i cleaned a bit the inbox space cleaning some acic parts out of the circuits and walls.
i also "jumpered" the screen and the game cume power in one connector so it turn on now at same time (the gc and the screen need 12 volts, so with the same volts is no problem, it only get more amps)
i also replaced the old and weird orange led (default gc led) by a blue one, it seems get more light now and i prefeer that color to the orange one.
now you finally can see a big dvd inside the case. the cube only can read 1,35 gb of the disc, but anyway it is better for the best media compability and for read some data from some discs.
you also can see another blue fuse inside, it have 2 fuses, the another one is in the first images
well this is a data disc on the qoob, you can choose the executable to load, very usefull with emulators and homwbrew.
the qoob also allow you backup to pc original games using the broadband conection , i included the broadband inside this portable system
well, this is my startup screen, lol ^^
as you can see in this image , the portable gc is loading a linux kernel.
it is very usefull, i have no keyboard on the cube, but i can control it by remote using the keyboard of my pc using "putty client" and the lan conection to connect to the game cube.
i also loaded on this linux some usfull modules like a media player.
this is the media player, it can play a lot of know format at a fine resolution and without crashes or waits, it is good for watch your favorite media on anyplace.
and this one is a snes emulator loaded on the portable.
there is a lot of homebrew, emulators and interesting stuff for the cube. so if you can use them for the travels it can be very interesting.
well, no more images for now. i hope you has enjoy with them.
thanks for watching my project, happy xmas and nice work there guys
