So I figured i would unpack my gamecube and play it today since i wasnt going anywhere. The picture was black and white and the av cable kept falling out of the console. took me 15 minutes of making it stay just to realize that i was using playstation 2/3 av cables. well one good thing i got out of this: i know know my av cable still works so i can use it when my ps3 gets fixed. i feel like an idiot though since i never realized that i could use av cables with another console even if you werent supposed to.
if i could play in color i wouldnt have changed it back.
I played my gamecube for a while last night. I used to have ps1 cables plugged into it and it was black and white too.
