    No, that's definitely not enough. Whatever flows in each voltage line will also flow in the ground one. So if 2A flows in the 1.9V line and 1A flows in the 3.3V line, then 3A will flow in the ground line (the numbers are completely random).

    so, i can use 2 lines per voltage and also use a bigger separated gnd cable? it will support all charge?

    I’m not sure if two lines of that cable are enough for the currents drawn by the gamecube

    In my experience, 22AWG wire isn't thick enough to carry the amount of current the GC uses without getting very hot. That FFC has no chance at all. Use proper wire, or you'll risk a short or fire.

    I wired the regulators with 20awg wire. Each regulator output send the correct voltage but When I connect the ptr08100 reg (1.9v) to the 2 points of the console the voltage is divided in half and there is no boot. what can be wrong?.

    Did the board work before? If not, check for shorts and sand the heck out of the sides. If so, double check that the ptr works with some other high current load. Also make sure the input isn't sagging when you connect the regs, that could mean you are pulling too much power from your power source
