    Thanks a lot for that. What about the remote control? Or do you have the Panasonic Q?

    no problem man....nah i dont have the Q, i think its way to expensive just for a remote and a dvd added to it.....not worth around 5oo bucks for....i used an apc rf remote for the cube....its made for turning on neon lights for cars....i just used that...then the keychain remote i fitted into a wavebird controller.....tone

    I was thinking of doing the region switch mod,but I can't find the switch for all regions,and will work for a NTSC version.I noticed that you need a certain bit called the Gamebit to open the case for the GameCube.I am still looking for that switch which is only 2 wires to solder,but can't find it anywhere.I guess freeloader is the only thing available for all region modifications,not sure though but if you see it can you tell me.

    Thanks man I am going to need alot of luck on this also.It looks pretty hard as the wires are kinda opened meaning not very safe for the motherboard also,but if stripped just right amount it could work.I found this guide here http://www.phosphors.com/gcn/region switch/ it is a alright guide and the switch I am going to be using looks like this http://www.radioshack.com/product.a..._name=CTLG_011_002_015_003&product_id=275-693 .I think this switch is perfect for this mod since it has two connectors at the end of it,this is a two wire solder process.It doesn't look like a bad switch either,might be able to find a better guide somewhere else.I will keep looking around to see what I can find.The bad thing is that I am going to be able to switch from USA/JAP vice versa,but Pal has to be used with Freeloader.It is still cool though,and I thought it would be something to look into right.I will keep you posted on results alright xpander37.I am also going to be applying vinyls to my cube that look like this http://www.decalgirl.com/browse.cfm/4,1967.htm or this one http://www.decalgirl.com/browse.cfm/4,2251.htm .They both look pretty cool,and they can hide most of the work that is done on it also.
