Oh does it just flat out not show any response at all? Or does player 1 end up going all screwy?

controller switch question

I know that everyone says that you need to put a switch on the power line of player one if you have external controllers, but has anyone ever tried just connecting the internal and external both to the player one spot on the mobo at the same time. What I'm going for here is that if nothing is touchi...

Re: A few questions for my portable

people never install a switch that toggles between the built in screen and the av out, they just put a switch on the power lines to the screen/speakers so when you connect it to the tv you can turn off the portable's screen/speakers.

av out/charging port

I want to use the av out port and charging port that hailrazer used in his kamikaze 64. I know they are from digikey but I don't know that part name/number and I don't really know how to navigate my way through the site.

Well there's a circuit that you can build for that but I don't know how to build it. There's a guy on the forums named mario, he should be able to help you out.

Re: Serious problems with N64P

When you relocate the cart slot there are 2 pins that you are supposed to skip, pins 14 and 39 I believe. As for the power issue, it was getting power which means it can get power again so just make sure all your solder joints are clean and secure. Oh and are you remembering to ground the n64? There...

Re: Partway through my portable but have some questions

1. Some people use screw shafts (it's just a pole with a screw in the end) and they just secure it inside the case and use the screw to hold it together or you could use little plastic tabs along the edge of the case with screws to hold it in place (the first method is a little more reliable but tak...

Re: No Audio?

Are we talking about an n64 that has never been opened? If so then the only solution I can think of is to open the n64 (which is a project all on its own) and make a new plug by soldering to the audio/video pins on the n64.

Re: roach64 help?! plz

The led power indicator can just be the led that was attached to the n64 mobo, or you could take it a step further and attach the led to the power switch so the led will be indicating that the batteries are on instead of just the n64 being on. As for the audio amp I would recommend the psone screen ...

Re: Nintendo 64 Power-switch problem

lucid pretty much covered it, wire it permanently on and attach the power switch to the 12v line. Might I suggest taking it one step further and putting the toaster inside the n64 case? :D

printed circuits

When you take apart an n64 controller there are little metal plates that are separated in the middle and when you push the button it connects them. Does anyone know if you can buy printed circuits like that and just solder the leads to the controller board?

Re: what design should i have?

Easiest design would be gameboy style (screen on top and controls on the bottom) I recommend that you look on polycase.com and check out some of their cases (the zn series is a popular one)

Re: New 3rd party N64 Joysticks

Yes these are legit and as far as a know they are third party sticks that are compatible with original n64 controllers, its just a matter of opening the controller and unplugging the analog stick to swap them out and these ones don't break within the first week of use.

psone screen power pin

I am having a really hard time soldering to the solder pads on the back of the psone screen (I can't even see the power solder pad anymore) is there another solder pad on the psone screen or an easier way to solder to the solder pads? The solder I am using is coated in flux so it should stick. Mario...
