Re: Any interest in Game Gear LCD mods?

Re: portable TG-16 Q's

Tg-16 didn't get much attention in the past, but as of late there was a very nice one mady by Bacteria (modded-by-bacteria) and also new 3.5" LCD's have been dropped into standard Turbo Express. I also recently added a lithium ion battery in one and even an external controller port. Search my posts ...

Added a controller port to Turbo Express (and Lithium ion)

After hacking a Nomad with a player 1 controller port, I decided to do the same for the Turbo Express. Seems crazy right? I plan to add a new screen and composite video out, with the Lithium ion mod that I did this is turning into a great portable console. http://img862.imageshack.us/img862/977/2972...

Re: Sega Nomad - P1 Controller port mod

Turns out it is the screen. I put a switch to the screen and when flipped off and hooked up to a TV all the video noise goes away. I was able to reduce the amount of interference of the screen itself so it looks good again. I can still see some interference if I look carefully on a dark screen. I am...

Re: Sega Nomad - P1 Controller port mod

it was actually just wiring up to the correct ribbon pins and hooking up to a DB9. However - I am now having a problem. All the mods I have are set and working properly, however I am now getting really bad interference, it isn't too bad until the screen is black or very dark. I get a lot of wavy lin...

Sega Nomad - P1 Controller port mod

Does anyone know how to peform this mod? I want to add in a P1 Controller port, and be able to plug in Joystick or 6 Button controller. With the S-video capability this is a great system to "consolize." I found the chip that controls / encodes the inputs, but not sure if I would need to bypass the c...

Re: FS : Sega Nomad Modding Service -- Screen and Battery

Quick question on the battery mod- is it possible to play and charge at the same time? Also a screen i obtained drains battery about the same rate as stock screen. Any idea how to improve that?
