Clean setup! I ended up using the multiout to send H/V for VGA and a custom cable. If I'm ever back working on the inside of my GCN I may add a DSUB-15 port like that.

I got a stack of gamecube motherboards here that came from units with dead DVD drive of cracked case. If I ever get a DOL-101, I just swap the MB and back plate with one from a DOL-001.

Thanks, the trick to getting a neat vga hole is heating up a spare plug and slowly melting it through the plastic case.

To fit it there you need to shave the lid switch pcb down to the switch and melt some of its support away, but it does not change the structural integrity of the switch or it's mounting which is a bonus.

This is all I took of the install sorry.

I'll probably open the poor thing again today and add a stereo headphone jack to route sound instead of using a breakout off my scart lead.

Its possible, but not in the current GCDual's state. If DOL-001 were rare and expensive I'd have something already for the 101. But since a decent 001 can be picked up easily and fairly cheap, I don't think its worth the effort.

I have seen requests for DOL-101's .. for special addition gamecube's that only came out as 101's. But even those can be converted to 001. Special edition is just a different case on outside. Swap PCB, Swap AC PCB, Swap back plate. You're done.

Potentially dumb question, but is 480p supported over RGB with the GCDual? I know it's not exactly standard, but the Dreamcast can do it with the Toro box and that is my preferred way to use it since it can then go through the same switcher as the rest of my stuff.

Awesome! I am trying to cut down on the splitters and other crap in my setup and just found your c-sync guide for PS2 so that I'll be able to run everything through the gScart after I get the GC Dual and still get 480p where applicable. Hooray!

Yeah, but I have a extra 101 model and I want it to have some usefulness. Buying an 001 for the motherboard doesn't change the fact I still have a useless 101 sitting around.

And I kinda want to do it out of curiosity, to see how difficult or messy it gets.
