    WOW holy snikies it is true there is a modchip.I am happy now thinking it would never come out for the longest time.I think what we need now is some beta testers that can make a hacked bios for it,and we should all be set :).Today has got to be one of the best days for GameCube peeps.

    parallel port?!? Where the F is the USB?

    So here is the real question. Anyone going to keep working on PSO+ or burning 8mm DVDs? Looks like this is the coders cable we have been waiting for.

    I was thinking the same thing StoneRain,not sure where everything connects or what.It doesn't have alot of specs for it,and the release of it is unknown.I don't want to jynx it,but I hope this aint a tease.

    the parallel port is used just for flashing the chip's bios with a new one from the pc..when the chip is connected to the gamecube the chip which has the parallel port might not be used at all. it's just the same as other programmable chips for other consoles. this might mean that this chip is designed for playing burnt games on the gamecube unit itself without having to stream the games from a pc..it's only natural if you think of it

    Yeah in a way it could also mean transfer of files from the actual drive though also right.They had mentioned it could replace the use of PSO and BBA right,so it could in some way replace the programs used for streaming images also.The programs out as of now to stream images are only capable of running off of the PSO and BBA technique,so I am thinking another program will come in for the image process for other people that can't get the PSO and BBA.

    it's up to the programers..it may be used to boot copies of games straight from the disc drive or use the bba for streaming games..but something tells me that the way it will be used might be to first insert an original game, read through the barcode and then open the lid and place a DVD-R ([bold]"The Viper GC has just four wires to solder, and an input/output connector to enable potential control of the lid sensor connected to the GC drive"[/bold]..i suppose that's the use of the lid sensor)..anw time will tell but i don't suppose they would come up with this chip just to replace using PSO to stream games off the bba (and still use the bba). it wouldn't make sense and nobody would want to pay extra for the chip if they already own PSO (especially now that we can boot games using the 100mbit option)

    When you say stream games ....you mean find iso files and play it on the cube using the game online thing?
