Downing's CNC PCB Test 1

So today I engraved my first PCB! Man the designing stage on this took forever and after I got it done, I still didn't have it quite right in terms of the project it's going into. But that's to be expected on a first draft. You get your ideas down, test them, test them again and then refine and test...

Downing's CNC Case Cut Test

Well guys, I gotta say that I'm really liking where these CNC methods are taking me. The video below shows the machine in action on a copy of the case I made for Evil Nod's N64 project. This was not built for any system in particular, just a test to see how it would work for cutting out screen, d-pa...

Re: Downing's GBA Complete

So after a few failed attempts at an extended battery and LED mod, I decided to just call this one quits with just a custom paint job. http://i862.photobucket.com/albums/ab182/cndowning/GameBoy%20Advance%20LED%20Mod/IMAG0655.jpg http://i862.photobucket.com/albums/ab182/cndowning/GameBoy%20Advance%20...

Downing's SNES-001 Advance Complete

This was actually finished about 10 days ago and I'm sure it has already been seen by a lot but for the sake of putting this to bed, here is the Completed Project thread for The SNES-001 Advance. This was quite a ride and fun to see it get picked up by some of the big boys! Anyway, a list of those s...

Downing's GBA Complete

While I'm waiting on a few parts to come in, I thought I'd start up a small and quick project (hopefully) that I should have done by the end of the week. I acquired a GBA in a bulk buy from a friend of mine a few months ago and it came with a very scratched up screen and a few dings in it. Worked gr...

Re: Downing's SNES-001 Advance

Almost finished off the box for the system. Just have to get a clasp so it will stay closed and then secure the LED wires a bit better. But all in all, getting very close to complete! Build process of the box explained in pictures below. Two edge pieces with the groove cut out so the bottom can sit ...

Re: Downing's SNES-001 Advance

Alright! Pics as promised! Second controller is complete and closed up! Though I do have to fix the alinement of the case halves which won't be too difficult! But the controller is 100% functional and feels great when playing! Leaps and bounds ahead of where the first one landed and so now I have to...

Re: Downing's SNES-001 Advance

Started moving on this again today, though I was sick again this morning, so pretty much as wasted day. Anyway, updates in the pics! I started with deciding I'd rather go with the rubber tact switches for the YXBA buttons, but I tried a different method of mounting them this time. Because I used the...

Re: Downing's SNES-001 Advance

Started with the internals this morning, getting the screen, speaker, controller PCB, D-pad and 7805 mounted. I also made the new decal for the XYBA. Still not perfect, but guessing games rarely are and I'm happy with how much better these turned out. For some reason the lighting was a bit off and t...
