*edit for those who aren't aware. i did not work on this constantly for the 2+ years. it sat in storage for well over 1 year of that time. probably closer to 1.5 years. the remainder of it i worked on and off on it. all in all, this probably took me a max of 6 months to do. and that was only due to coming across many issues, like not measuring properly.
ok, guys. it's finally done.
system - retroduo (both nes & snes sides)
batteries - 2 3.7v li-ion 4250 mAh (i've not had time to test battery life yet)
case - frankencased zn-40 & retroduo housing
screen - psone screen modded with 6 leds
controller - cut up retroduo controller
random tidbits - snes led changed from red to pink; case has custom made decals; uses a switching regulator to get the 5v more effectively for system; both cart slots are parallel with the case
i'm not sure how to have videos show here, so you're just gonna get links.detailed descriptionquick descriptionshowing both sides workingfirst level of starfox
if you are interested, here is the build thread
and the link to all the pics i took
and yes, i do know that the green nes led has stopped working. i didn't realize till just a bit ago. i believe it's fixed now.
a few measurements of the system:
weight of system - 2 lbs 2.4 ounces
weight of system with both games - 2 lbs 9.6 ounces
thickness - 2 5/8"
height with just nes game - 5 7/8"
height with the snes game - 7"
yes, it is a bit large and a bit hefty. but, it's mine and it's done and it looks nice.
