Hey guys I was trying to expand my usb ports today so I started wiring stuff up, and I ended up with this.



Its not working, anyone have an idea why?

I see your problem. See that blue port between what you've hooked up and that black cable? You need to plug a blue lobster in there. Also, I suggest replacing that Ethernet cable with a banana to make sure compatibility works.

Wow o.o

Is that the 4chan thing that was talked about in the IRC logs? O.O

In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

The blue lobster is essential as TsukasaZX mentioned.  But, however, i would recommend that you win the game first, that might be the problem with it not working in the first place.

What Builderboy said. Remember, some ports are disabled unless you provide explicit proof that you've won the game before.

one more thing!

see the teal port and the purple port? you need two dual male 3.5mm link cables connected to a 3.5mm splitter. attach a 3.5mm to 2.5mm converter to that, plug that into your calc's io port, and then run kerm's mobile tunes. the overall addition of awesome just might be enough to let you get by without having to win the game

Actually, this is a rather simple problem to solve.  Simply install OS 0.46 with basic printing capabilities, and usb8x should be able to access the usb drive.  You don't technically have to win the game, but it helps.  Good luck.  The fate of the universe rests on your shoulders.

AAAND you need to use ndless on the flash drive to make sure your OS is validates, and ports 4/6 are open

The funny thing is if that adapter setup actually worked

In this topic? It's hard to go 5 min without losing the Game on this site.  Anyway, It would require a custom driver, but yeah, I guess it could work.  I mean, the wires have to connect back to the printer port somehow.  I guess you would "print" stuff to your flash drive.
