Hey!! So...got a cheap seconhand Gamecube to restore, picoboot nd swiss, paint and give a second life. As per usual, people chasing the GBA Modules leave the gamecubes without the Hi Speed Port cover, and so I tried some different ones from the internet with mixed and poor results, I made this one that I feel is the most precise one i ve tried yet, and it is TESTED as seen in the attached photo.

MEDIAFIRE DOWNLOAD

*Ignore the burnt side, i had a small problem with mi printer nozzle, just that. *As a recomendation: Print it slowly, not too much fan (i do not use fan) since it is a small piece, USE SUPPORTS, preferably use ABS, sand it down and paint it afterwards if desired. Hope you like it!

THIS IS my original post from reddit that i ported here to help with Lemmy s migration and usage, since i think reddit should be abandoned.

Reddit making all third party apps a PAID service after releasing the paid API, and its first party app being total AD oriented instead of user orientef sure helped!

Hey! No with GC Loader i dont know if they will make it work :( Either way you can activate boot through ipl on Swiss settings to at least enjoy the boot animation when opening a game! You have to name whichever wallpaper you want to use to just "backdrop.tpl" and put it in the Swiss folder on your SD card! You have the full tutorial to make your own backdrops inside the Download file, theres a text in english and another one in spanish there. Its pretty easy but requires using the terminal/console.

Glad you like them!! I learned the other day because as a newbie i couldnt find a pre made sample of these. If you change the cubeboot.bin hexadecimal value for the color you can make the color of you Gamecube and your Swiss background match! Love this simple things that let you customize your experience.

SWISS is the program used to run Homebrew software on a modded gamecube. In my case i use picoboot, theres more options, and soon there will be flippy drive wich is solder free!!

POSTING this info on lemmy to port my own post from reddit, since im trying to slowly abandon it and want to migrate here while the user base grows

Hey!!! With the amazing help of different people from the Gamecube and Wii modscene I performed my first picoboot installation and now I was customizing my Boot Animation with CUBEBOOT and my Swiss backgrounds.

Cubeboot lets you power on your Gamecube through the boot animation and even customize the text and color of it. Just follow their github tutorial

So, because i cannot give back to the community in a better way, I dedicated a few hours today to create some readily available backgrounds to use with Swiss.

You can see the backgrounds available here (theres more inside, most are pink cause i painted my gamecube pink and silver):

Special thanks to Colrust (reddit username) for sending me his files and helping me personally. Greatly appreciated, I shared your files in this pack too, i hope you dont mind, if you do i will take them down of course.

In spanish:
