Retrocube is a project of using a GameCube case for a retropie project (retro gaming using raspberry pi) This first part describe the hardware of this project.

Hardware Part

GameCube opening tool

The GameCube uses 4 special screw. We need to build a tool to open it. Such a tool can be made using a simple Bic :

  • Remove the ballpoint part
  • Carefully, burn the end of the pen with a lighter
  • Quickly put the burned end of the pen onto one of the 4 screw and wait for the pen to cool down
  • Then you can use this tool to remove the 4 screw

GameCube dismantling

Safely dismantle all the parts

GPIO to gamepad

The gamepad will use the gamecon_gpio_rpi driver which use the following GPIO pins:

Carefully identify each pins, i use small paper to identify the interesting wire :

  • 3.3V
  • 5V
  • PAD1
  • PAD2
  • PAD3
