GC controller PC adapter malfunctioning?

I have a game controller to pc adapter that adapts xbox, ps2, and GC controllers, called a 3 in 1 Magic Joy Box. It has one port for each. I have had two (third party) GC controllers die on me and I think it was due to hooking them up to this adapter. The reason being is that I have found my multime...

Re: Stereo Audio Amplifier for Gamecube

A problem with my Gamecube's audio has arisen yet again. This time the problem is with the Gamecube itself. I am experiencing extreme interference on both L and R audio lines, though a little bit more on what I think is R. I disconnected the audio lines from the pre-amp a while back and am using aud...

Re: SS's ZN-GCp Commission!

What a lovely little portable. It seems a lot smaller than you say it is, is that really a 5" screen? And did you perform a VGA mod...? Anyway, still yet another very professional piece of hardware I can't stop staring at.

Rusted motherboard/Crippled Cube

My newest problem with the Gamecube has arisen, and it seems to be much different this time. My GameCube, on which I have done some kind of AlmostWTF hybrid cut, is working fine for me except for one strange problem: It takes multiple attempts to turn it on. Since before I even started cutting it, t...

Re: Blargaman's portable GC

I know, I know. But if you know of a GameCube controller with buttons that will fit in that space, do tell. I don't even know how to mount the buttons without modifying the case severely... which I cannot do -_-.

EDIT: I realize I can use other smaller buttons, but even then...

Blargaman's portable GC

I've made a little progress on this portable GameCube I started a while ago. I've restarted it recently, so it's all pretty new. And I know that everything looks horrible as crap. I have no experience in casework, and didn't feel adequate to try any real buttons (just tacts). I'm also less than a ye...

Re: The WowItActuallyWorked64 (previously N64Boy Advance.0)

Well, while I don't ike to suggest re-doing anything, I think new, better wire is in order. I've used the same stuff it looks like you're using and I've had much trouble getting any clean soldering done. It can be difficult to even tin. I think it would help to take every wire associated with the pr...

Re: Stereo Audio Amplifier for Gamecube

Well, none of that above crazy information is relevant anymore, but I'd just like to ask the pros and gods of modding this - What do you use for amplification in those portables?!? I'm using a TPA6021A4 and the results are great, but I get a lot of buzzing with the DS Lite speakers I need to use. I'...

Gamecube Controller questions

What I really need to do is wire buttons and other things directly to the IC found on the first party GC controller. I would like to use this IC because all the third party ones I've seen are just blobs and do not have legs. But the controller, of course, is covered in some paint-like substance that...

Re: moving buttons?

Well, things could be done a number of ways. It would be difficult and probably impractical to use the actual plastic buttons from the Gameboy. We know, of course, that the DS Lite plastic buttons fit best into the holes, so it's advised to use those. You could: 1) Put tact switched/push switches un...

Re: Fried Mobo??

Honestly, anything can happen. i'Ve had countless mobos die on me for no apparent reason. You should troubleshoot, though. I'm assuming you have a multimeter, it's kind of essential. So first, check the power supplies. If you have a DOL-001 board, that would be the external power regulator board. On...

Re: Charging a Ni-Cd battery

What kind of battery (in shape and design) is it exactly? If the charger accepts AA batteries you'll have to make some other way to draw the power from the charger. Ni-CD batteries shouldn't require any protection for charging, but 4v sounds a little low. I would think that a 3.6v battery should cha...
