Re: Creating Multi Platorm Systems

I don't have really any experience in this, but I would probably wire in a system selector in there, something like this http://www.hsn.com/products/universal-system-selector-dreamgear/6335917?sz=6&sf=EC0279&ac=INCEC0279&cm_mmc=Shopping%20Engine-_-PLA-_-Electronics-_-6335917&channel=Froogle&mr:refer...

Remove battery and charger from wireless PS3 controller?

Has anyone ever removed the battery and charging module from a wireless PS3 controller and used them to make a wireless controller for another system? Just wondering if it has been attempted and how difficult it would be? I don't yet have a PS3 or PS3 controller, but I want to know if buying a broke...

Re: How to charge a li-ion battery?/ Cheap battery deal

Oh, well I probably should have said what I wanted this for. Oops. I want to make a wii remote/ classic controller hybrid with built in rechargable battery. The wii remote runs on 2 AAs (or AAAs if I use the smaller Power A brand Wii remote).

So what exactly is a smart charger then?

Re: How to charge a li-ion battery?/ Cheap battery deal

Ah, ok I will keep looking. It does seem to work pretty well on a DSi, according to the reviews on Best Buy.

How to charge a li-ion battery?/ Cheap battery deal

Just bought this battery at Best Buy: Rocketfish™ - DSi Power Shell with Rechargeable Backup Battery (my BB has it for 99 cents). I don't have a DSi, but I bought this thinking it would work for my 3DS, considering they use the same charger. The battery doesn't fit, so I took it apart. Just wonderin...

Re: How to make a rechargable battery pack?

Well, yeah, replaced as much as need be for devices like this with built in batteries. I haven't ever had to replace batteries in any of my devices that had built in recharable batteries so far. Anyway, thanks for the advise! I will do some more research and see what I can come up with. For the Li-I...

How to make a rechargable battery pack?

Apparantly you can't search for "battery" here, so I appologize if this has already been answered. So there's this new third party Interworks controller for Wii that combines the Wii remote and Classic Controller into one. Problem is, that I heard it sucks, so I wanna try to make my own. Any idea wh...

Re: snes controller as classic controller(pic cuz it did happen)

Yeah, maybe. I have one of those adapters. I actually made an adapter to use actual NES controllers (rather than Famiclone with Sega-style plugs) on this thing as well. Anyway, I have a disassembled Classic Controller and Super Famicom controller waiting for the operation, because I want to play Sam...

Re: snes controller as classic controller(pic cuz it did happen)

I'm trying to fit the actual classic controller pcb into the SNES controller shell. I think it can be done, I just need to get a dremel or something like it to cut up the pcb.

Re: Possible to fit Wii Classic Controller guts into SNES shell?

the bottom prongs of the board could be a little difficult. Also, can anyone confirm weather removing the analoge parts of the triggers would cause any problems I can. I just tested this on Super Mario World on the Virtual Console as well as changing the pages on the Wii menu. The analog part of th...

Re: Possible to fit Wii Classic Controller guts into SNES shell?

I'm pretty sure I can remove the analog sticks with no problems, but I'm not sure what is safe to grind down.

Possible to fit Wii Classic Controller guts into SNES shell?

I mean it seems like the control pads and abxy buttons are in the same positions on both. Start and Select and L and R would have to be done another way though.
