GameCube Hardware Nintendo Gamecube Cheats

Alternate start-up sound
Power on the GameCube, then hold Z while the GameCube logo is forming to hear a different start-up sound.

Change Screen Refresh Rate
While powering on the system, hold B until the message "Would you like to switch to 50hz mode?" appears. This allows you to switch the screen refresh to match that of PAL games. If playing on a PAL system, the message will be "Would you like to switch to 60hz mode?", allowing the screen refresh to match that of NTSC games.

Control starting logo
While the cube bounces down, hold A to form the "G" logo to spin it.

Set system time and options
While powering on the system, hold A or hold A while the cube rolls around the screen. Alternately, turn on the Gamecube without a disc. Wait until the opening sequence is over and you will be able to set the time and date on the system, delete memory files (if there is a memory card inserted), and set the sound and screen position.

Game Boy Advance to Gamecube link option
This trick requires two Gamecubes, two televisions, and at least one Game Boy Player. The purpose of this trick is to eliminate the need for a Game Boy Advance and also use the special function it provides on a television screen. Attach the Game Boy Advance to Gamecube cable into the link cable slot in the Game Boy Player (without a game in it) that is attached to the other Gamecube (on which the game with the special options is played, such as the Tingle Tuner on Legend Of Zelda: The Wind Waker) or put in the required game that may be required for other options (such as the Metroid Prime and Metroid Fusion hookup).

DVD Music
You know how XBox can put music from your CD's onto the game, well I found out how you can do it with a GameCube.
First, you need all of these.

-1 Nintendo GameCube
DVD Player
-1 TV w/AV slots (not a TV/
DVD combo)
-Your favorite music CD

This is what you do:
Hook up the
DVD Player (Audio only) to the AV Slots. Then, Put in your CD into the DVD. Set your track you want to listen to. Put in ONLY the Video AV jak from the gamecube to the TV. Then play your Game. Although you don't here the game sounds, you can listen to your songs while you play. Try playing music based on the game your playing. Example: "Ghost Busters Theme" while playing "Luigi's Mansion".

Alternate DVD Music
Instead of using both audio cords (red & white ones), use one of the DVD's Audio cords and one of the GameCube's Audio cords. This way, you can hear the game's music & the DVD's music. But remember, turn the game's music off in the options (if you can), and make sure you have the GameCube's Video Cord in and not the DVD's.

Spinning Cube
Turn the machine on and you will see a square bouncing down to form the G. If you hold A during this sequence as the square is bouncing down it will spin which looks very cool.


Different sound on start-up
To have a different sound on start-up, hold Z while the GameCube logo is forming. It's much different then the original.

Spin Gamecube logo at startup screen
When you start your GCN, hold the 'A' button and the logo spins around.

Set system time and options:
Hold A while powering on the system.
Alternately, hold A while the cube rolls around the screen.

Access System Menu with Game in System
Normally, when you turn on the Gamecube without a game inside, it'll bring you to the system menu, where you can change the day/time, memory card info, etc. You can access it if you have a game in the system when you turn it on, too! Just hold A when you turn on the system. When the Gamecube logo comes on, it'll spin really fast and morph into the system menu.
