Wow, first post in a while!(for me that is)

This thread makes me feel old. If most of you are picking on Triton for graduating before you, I DO feel wierd, since I've been in college for three years already.

Oh well, who says you're too young to start modding. :D :D :lol:

Those maglite LED's are freakin huge.....huge as in 3 WATTs of LED light!! If you could power it with a DC-DC converter (because they run on 3 or 4.5 volts depending on how many cells the flashlight has), it would be a great solution for backlighting the PSOne screen.

9.6v packs have EIGHT batteries. The PSOne screen's voltage limit appears to be 9v, but a fully charged "9.6v" pack actually has a voltage of around 11v.

The SNES mini's power consumption depends on what game you are playing, but the range is about 250-350mA, with the max being probably with a game such as Starfox or Mario RPG.

As far as I know, ONLY SNES mobos from 1991 have that bulky APU unit sticking off the board. After that, technology improved and they reduced the size to just one or two DIP chips. :D BTW, my second SNESp really demonstrates how well you can make a portable look with an older motherboard. Take a loo...

Personally, I think the new Li-on powered one is best, because you get long runtime, no memory effect and it stays charged for 2 years.

I also hate cords getting in my way, so that could be my reason for liking this particular model, but hey whatever you think is best.

I agree. This is a kick ass battery, cause I just bought one from RatShack. However, here's a cool tidbit: Remember those "torpedo" rechargeable packs made for the gamegear? Well, they use this exact size pack, except the original NiCads suck and by now are looooooong dead. Soooo, I just spliced the...

Find the video encoder, look up its number and find which pin on it gives out c-sync.

The only one I've bought is Neon Genesis Evangelion.

I also just recently watched Martian Successor Nadesico, and have had it in my sights for my next anime purchase. This show seems to be less popular, but it's one of my favorite anime comedies. :D

Yep. Those are the correct pinouts. If you read to the last page, you'll actually see that I confirmed that they were correct when I used them on my SNESp Mk II.

Man, that brings back good memories, good times!! :D :D :D :D :D :D

thanks. I also confirmed one thing about the FC twin: some of the video encoders are faulty. Because the composite ceased to send out anything BEFORE I removed it from the case. This must have been the problem I was asking about weeks ago when a guy at the fleamarket told me these were unreliable. ...

Yeah, I've thought about this quite often, and tried to apply Ben's trick he did with the atari portable in his book, but since the atari is way different in its button signals (data latch and all that), it didn't work. I'm sure there is a way to convert analog to digital, which is what the SNES con...
