Hi Hacker -- I used the video mod from Ben's book. For the bypass connections to the 4x4 board I didn't use the books instructions but used these old instructions: http://www.classicgaming.com/vcsp/Step% ... acking.htm
because for some reason I was having problems getting things to work using the books instructions (probably a newbie-itis thing).
Hi Reaperman -- I'm left handed so a left hand controller makes sense for me.
Hi Bicostp -- Great idea about using the red cellophane for when I'm out doing my astronomy thing. Sometimes I'm literally up all night when I do imaging so playing games might help keep me awake!
Hi Turbo Tax -- It's 9 1/2" long by 6 1/4" wide and 2 1/4" high. It weighs 1 1/2 lbs fully loaded (batteries and cart).
Hi G-force -- I was a little gun shy about opening cases after frying my Casio 680 so I decided to leave the Intec screen alone. I used foam core board and lots of hot glue to build the support for the Intec screen so it would sit above the 4x4 board. I also used the foam core board for extra scaffolding to make the box more rigid.
