Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

I've had multiple people tell me to get a step-down converter. I have one big problem with this, the good step-down converters are heavy. I'll be carrying this thing to the other side of the globe. My main question is does anyone now how to make a power supply form discreet components to run the dre...

Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

That is a PC monitor, I have a VGA adapter cable. I've used the DC on it, looks splendid. I've finally decided to make the enclosure out of fiberglass. I was thinking Plexiglas, but I like the idea of using fiberglass. My biggest problem so far has been powering my 120vac DC in a 220vac country. I t...

Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

Sorry I haven't updated in awhile. I haven't made any more progress. And on all the discussion about Kuwait, well I shouldn't say anyone. I actually like Kuwait, when I'm in Kuwait City, but the rest of it sucks, and I'm away from my family. No offense to anyone. The parts I've been to that aren't d...

Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

Re: dc arcade controller help

I would actually use this controller as the base http://www.amazon.com/Quantum-Fighterpad-Controller-Sega-Dreamcast/dp/B00000K13E , it's pretty hackable. But your idea is sound it should work. And electrical tape might work for a test but it might not stick right. The biggest problem would be the an...

Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

Here are some mock-ups and a sketch for my general idea so far. Soon I'm gonna do with cardboard What I want to do with the Plexi. After some measuring I've determined I can't stand the controllers up, so I'm gonna lay them flat.

Re: My plans for making a deployable Dreamcast Laptop.

I don't want it for an actual laptop, more as mobile gaming. The keyboard would be useless, and the bba is prohibitively expensive and near useless. I'm gonna use that excess space to hold controllers, vmus, and games.
