    Help GameCube Mod ch1p

    Evening All

    I've just got a Gamecube so my lad can go back over the original Resident Evil games that he's never played. Plus I'm interested in getting an N64 emulator running on it. I'm going to build an SD card reader out of a GameCube memory card but I'm after a modchip and can't see to find one anywhere in the UK. Does anyone know of anywhere that still does them please?

    At the risk of having the piss taken out of me, it's for my retro collection and mainly for my lad to play on. I might pickup another Wii at some point but I sold my old one a few years back.

    The GameCube was part of a lot I purchased recently and I can borrow the Resident Evil titles from my mate who has a GameCube sat in his loft. But in the interest of playing around with it, it seems like a need a Modchip and then an SD card with various things on for loading homebrew. The SD card alone won't do the job apparently.

    You will need a anti tamper screwdriver , it's not the type most people have .
    best to order one the same time or you will be pissed off when you go to mod it .

    i know someone local to me who sells the chips mate, just sent him a text to see if he has any
    chip is £6 & P&P

    edit: he just text back to say he does have some
    You know he grew up as a little shitspark from the old shitflint and then he turned into a shitbonfire and driven by the winds of his monumental ignorance he turned into a raging shitfirestorm. If I get to be married to Barb I'll have total control of Sunnyvale and then I can unleash the shitnami tidal wave that will engulf Ricky and extinguish his shitflames forever. And with any luck he'll drown in the undershit of that wave. Shitwaves.

    can you still buy ritek dvd-r these days, my cube wouldn't touch anything else. Make sure you read up about burning multigame disks too, that will save you some media.

    Heres a tip for you. Be very careful if you want to boot any Japanese games as they seem to use a different save format and erase your memory card without telling you. I used to have a memory card just for Japanese games.

    I cant really think of any Japanese games you'd want to play these days that you can't find a USA or UK release of though, so you should be OK.

    Get the Bongos if you don't have them already and play DK Jungle Beat, I fucking adore that game.

    No worries mate, glad it arrived ok

    and yes as {{909}} said you will need a separate memory card for japanese games
