Re: 3D Printing: Back Button Assembly with Fan Vent

Right now I'm contemplating whether the design should use a 3D-printed button or re-used buttons, say from a cheap knock-off NES/SNES controller using the round buttons. However, traditionally, shoulder buttons like the ones in the SNES, PS4, XBox, etc., are all rectangular buttons. The benefit of u...

Re: Nintendo releasing Nintendo 8-bit mini.

LOL! It has just been released and yet you folks are already thinking of how to mod and get emulation on it. At least play on it for a while before removing the guts. Besides, that's a $60 case we're talking here. :lol:

Re: 3D Printing: Back Button Assembly with Fan Vent

If you can get this made properly we can can make a pcb with a flex ribbon attached to it so it can be thin and flexible instead of having 4 or 5 wires going through the case to the controller boards. Sure! Let me know how this design can still be improved to easily integrate into the PCB. This des...

Re: [Recommendation] VGA Screen from WankedaStore

Yeah this is my shipping experience as well -- I got the screen in 3days via DHL. The shipping cost they're asking is for expedited DHL shipping that's why it's a bit high. I thought it's bec. of the insurance or something but really for the shipping speed.

Re: 3D Printing: Back Button Assembly with Fan Vent

@tronicgr PM me your email so I can send a copy. I'm using Sketchup and the model is available in the 3D Warehouse. Not my work though and not to scale. I had to tweak it a bit to make it close to the DMG-01 dimensions but still not very accurate. I just use it to visualize case mod ideas. https://c...

[Recommendation] VGA Screen from WankedaStore

For anyone looking for a 3.5 LCD screen for their GBZs, I recommend considering getting a VGA (640x480) resolution esp. from WankedaStore over at eBay. I too joined the 'VGA club" and wanted to have a higher resolution screen for my next build but the unit that I got in the mail had color banding is...

Re: BadBert's GBZ Build

@BadBert
I think you hit the jackpot there! that's the same board I got that runs off 5v without modification. Plus the board is very small. ;)
