    Does WasabiDX run GameCube backups properly?

    Hi,

    I'm new to modding but I've been reading about the different modchips that are out there and I'm thinking about getting a solderless one.

    I've read about the DriveKey having some issues with running GameCube backups (audio streaming?...) and in some cases it doesn't run original games.

    So, does WasabiDX run GameCube backups with no issues?

    to my knoledge I am the only one with a wasabi DX & I unfortunitly cant answer your question for sure since I have no GC games to try.. But I do know that the audio streaming is still an issue with the Wasabi DX, The only modchip i know of that was supposed to fix it is the wasabi zero..

    Thank you for replying!

    Hmm, I didn't know Wasabi Zero was solderless (it seems there is a solder and solderless versions or something like that). I've searched info about it and it seems really good. So I'll probably get Wasabi Zero. I still haven't bought a Wii, so I hope it works with the drive of the Wii I get >.< Or else I guess I'll have to get WasabiDX... Let's see how it goes.

    I am guessing that most new wii's have the Epoxy covered chips so unless you want to scrape it off you will need a 3rd gen Modchip (ie FlatMod, DriveKey or my obvious preference Wasabi DX)

    I bought a Wii today! ^^

    I inserted my serial number on that website that identifies drives and I got this:



    Your drive most likely has the following chipset:

    * There is a 75% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E.
    * And there is also a 25% chance the chipset is GC2-D2E and covered in black glue.



    I guess I'll have to open up the Wii to check if it the chip is covered in epoxy. Damn, I really hope it's not... I really want to get Wasabi Zero. But hey, 75% chance that it is not covered in epoxy is not bad at all xD Let's see what I get...

    lucky bastard... haha mine had so much epoxy it covered the chip & like 2 inches all around it.. I Would have deffinitly perferred the zero just because it was well established already.. But i guess since I have no GC games or intentions on getting them then it doesnt matter eh..

    Yep, I was pretty lucky. I guess not that many people buy a Wii where I live. When I went to buy one, I made sure I was taking the oldest one by checking the copy number of the console There were only two Wii's but their copy numbers were kinda far apart so maybe if I had bought the other one I wouldn't had been so lucky. Heheh.
