    Hi everyone. As you may know, an IDE-EXI adapter is necessary to boot games from an HDD via USB with Swiss. Okay, cool, but am I the only one to be shocked of the official one ?

    Crap. It works perfectly of course, but it's ugly. Really, I'd prefer to make such an adapter by my own instead of buying the official one. It also seem very fragile... Do you know if a better IDE-EXI adapter is planned or not ?

    Thx and congratulations to emu_kidd for his great work ! [​IMG]

    It looks amazing and fugly at the same time. If I was a wee bit more interested in GC-backups I would get it for the geek-factor alone.

    It's a homebrew developement adapter such as the SD Gecko designed to house your homebrew and meadia ect on a hard drive for Gamecube which has no internal memory. It can however be used on the wii for use with emu-kidd's SWISS app to play pirated games ect.

    Open your eyes. That IS a professional adapter. It lacks a case, but it's pretty robust and well made.

    You've obviously never seen a adapter like this, soldered by hand quick and dirty. That looks pretty professional to me, only lacks a case which is a more expensive (and kind of superflous) part of such a project.

    I'm actually going to make a case for it and an enclosure for the drive to match. Ice blue [​IMG]
