The console I’m using is the original wii with the built in gcn ports.
The games I’ve been using for testing are CVS2 for gamecube and TVC for wii, both of which support gcn controllers.
It’s not likely a one off manufacturing error as I have 2 of these boards with the same result.
Wiring cant be the issue as the retro board has a built-in rj45 jack. You just plug your console cable right in. (Theres really very little that can go wrong with this pcb)
The only room for error will be when crimping the rj45 end of the console cable. I have 4 cables. 2 of them were crimped by me, 2 of them were purchased at jasen’s customs. All 4 cables work fine with my cthulu modded stick. But all 4 fail with my retro board modded stick.
The only possibility i can think of is the retro board is not compatible with the wii as originally advertised. (The web site listed wii/gcn compatibility as a feature when the PCB was first released, now it simply lists gcn) and I dont have a gamecube to test with.
I spoke to Jasen about it via email and even he said he has never tested it on a wii.
I’m curious if anyone has tried the retro board on a regular gamecube as well as a wii, and what were the results. I’ve only found 1 other person who has even tried the wii and he gets the same result as me.
