This project is open-source and developed on GitHub: raphnet/gcn64tools. Suggestions, patches, pull-request and issues are welcome.


Q: I get a "Failed to Open Adapter" error when I select my adapter. What should I do?
A: Under Windows, RGB Fusion, Base camp, Mystic Light (and possibly others of the kind) are known to interfere with the adapter and causes this error. Stop those software when using the adapter manager.

Q: Is it possible to update old (v1 and v2.9 - discontinued in 2016) Gamecube/N64 to USB adapters using this tool?
A: Unfortunately not. Those adapters did not have updateable firmware and are a completely diferent design (newer firmwares would also not run no them)
