OP
I'm looking at buying a GameCube and a GameBoy Player on a budget and it seems I have the following two options:

Buy a PAL GameCube, a GameBoy Player, a Japanese GBP disc and a PAL GC Freeloader disc to run the GB Player.

Buy a Japanese GameCube, GameBoy Player, Japanese GBP disc and Japanese Wii Freeloader disc to run my PAL games.

My questions are:
Does Freeloader work for GameBoy Player discs?
Does a Wii Freeloader disc work on a GC?
Does it matter what region the GameBoy Player itself is from (e.g. can I use a Japanese GameBoy Player on a PAL console?)
Is the AC adapter for a GameCube dual voltage or do I have to use a PAL AC adapter?

Does Freeloader work for GameBoy Player discs?
It should. I can confirm that the Freeloader function of the Action replay that claims to be working on Wii can load the GameBoy Player Startup disk. (I recommend you to get this Action Replay instead, because its Freeloader seems to be more compatible (the actual Freeloader disk fails at loading the american SD Media Launcher on a pal console. But the Action Replay's Freeloader does it quite well))


Does a Wii Freeloader disc work on a GC?
No.

I assume the hardware has no regional differences. But I can't confirm this.

I've gotten the Japanese GC+ GB Player + GB Player disc + JP US region switch preinstalled. I'm currently waiting on a US freeloader.

I can confirm that the AC adapter isn't dual voltage, but circumcising the Wii AC adapter so that it can fit both a Wii and a GC did the trick.

    It could be other factors high ram refresh rate etc

    Samsung UI is probably a ram hog as it is
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Yeah. Could be a number of things. My old ass phone has a custom rom on it too so a lot of the bloat is gone, and its not using the moto UI
