5" Screen model is done! :D :D

It pretty much an exact replica of the first with the obvious larger screen. Only other differences are that in this one I regulated the CPU and GPU seperately, so I should get better batter life. Also this one has the component cable chip installed for crystal clear 480p VGA display in all of the GameCubes glory. With Swiss flashed to the Wiikey, I can easily force ALL GameCube games from all regions to display in 480p and the newest SVN version of Swiss even supports forcing games to a "non stretched" 16:9 aspect ratio (see Zelda SS below), So even Beta can't female of the dog species about the screen. ;)

Internals FTW:

This one was a real challenge to get closed on account of the larger screen and all the sheiled wires I had to Run to it for VGA in. Plus the other stuff I mentioned I crammed into this one that wasn't in the first. At any rate, I managed to keep it exactly the same thickness of the 1st one:

I swear to god I'm going to finish all the other projects I've got started now. No more GC's for a while. ;)

First unit with the 4.3" screen is for sale if anyone is interested. PM me and we can haggle, serious inquiries only, first come, first served.

Thanks!

This is the exact LCD I used:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/5-0-TFT-LCD-Mod ... 27c27b5e91

Nice price, and nice features. My only gripe is that it doesn't do 15khz VGA (Dalian displays DO, regardless of what they say). So, when I boot the system I have to switch to AV1 and then to VGA once I boot Swiss. Not a huge deal, but slightly annoying I guess.
