i got you. I appreciate the clarification!MX chip is in charge of RTC, and GameCube fonts mostly but nintendont, an extension installed in RVLoader emulates GameCube fonts. Making MX not required unless you want to play games that rely on the clock like animal crossing.
The Bluetooth is required to boot into the Wii menu, but you can emulate wiimote functionality with the GC+2 in the RVLoader menu when booting into Wii games directly.
Bluetooth and a wireless sensor bar is recommended if you want to do Wii games, but not required.
GC and Wii games that use the RTC won't shit the bed if the MX chip is missing. You'll miss out on things like TTYD's lottery and accurate savegame timestamps, but the games will otherwise work fine. The exceptions to this are NES and N64 virtual console titles. They all need the font data in the MX chip to run correctly, and cannot be played without it.If im planning on just playing gamecube games on my gboy, is it needed to relocate the MX chip? I know the mx chip gives real time of the saved game played but not having it installed wont stop the functionality of the gboy will it? Also for me to play wii games does both the bluetooth and MX chip need to be added in order to play wii games or just the Bluetooth?
Thank you! I've been a fan since i was a git playing on my gameboy pocket and super nintendo lol.
Oh god............. Manolo.................This YouTube video helped me a lot with my trim and test process when I first started out. I was also afraid to tackle the Bluetooth relocation but this video made it look really easy.
You're going to want to use an exacto knife and use the very tip of it to lightly drag across the board traces to slowly remove the solder mask, then fiberglass of the board until you see the copper trace beneath.
Stagger the exposed traces so they're not directly next to each other. Keep them about 5-10mm apart so when you're soldering you don't bridge the two connections by mistake.
Use a generous amount of flux, and solder your 30-32awg magnet wire on and the rest is easy.
Remember to use longer wires for when you're bench testing. Then when you install the Wii trim into the enclosure and decide on a final mounting point for your Bluetooth module you can cut all your wires to length and resolder them.
It's ideal to keep the Bluetooth module and wifi module wires as short as possible.
One thing to keep in mind also is that the SYNC button pulls to 3.3v rail, not ground, like every other button on the system.
Funny you say that because you can tell his quality is poor. Yet his trim and Bluetooth relocation still worked and that gave me the confidence to do it myself because I wouldn't do it that... Blobby..Oh god............. Manolo.................
Take any portable stuff you see from him with a fistful of salt. Guy has been doing everything scuffed since day one and hasn't improved much.
