If I had a 7,2V battery that's what I would do, but the battery is 14,4V (^)

Thx I'll try it out. Can I just take half of the cells and use a 7,2V charger? I don't think I need 14,4V to power a genesis + screen. There's also some transistors, diodes and ic's soldered to the wires that connect the batteries, can I take them off?
EDIT: Will that wall plug fit in a Europian one?

I have some magazines from Nintendo Club, which was the Europian version of Nintendo Power but unfortanently no longer exists. They were from the time that the Snes was coming up and they feature games like A link to the past and Super Mario World. Ahh, those were the days...

What you need:
-precision screwdrivers set ($1)
-file (10cents?)

File down the 1,8mm to fit it in one of the screws. Since the screwdrivers stink you'll have to file them down again from time to time.

Awesome N64 skillz! Too bad you couldn't put large textures in there... Maybe if you could somehow find out how Factor 5 did it for the starwars games? But anyway, high-res textures or not I don't care because it's looking uber koowl for a fan made game!

I used to have an Amstrad computer with tapes. The only available color was green though but I had a lot of fun. It had games like 'Da-Bells' which was extremely fun. It was my first video game experience too.

This is the smallest one I have.

Have you looked in a hardware store? They might sell something like a gamebit because other brands use the same screws. My water boiler uses them and my rechargable battery packs from Tyco too.

You can buy the gamebit for like 9$ or something on ebay. I've never opened up a Nintendo cart before. Are you sure you can just replace the battery in there? It would be a shame if you ruined a game like Terranigma :)
EDIT: I just read the thread in the snes forum. So you can. Still be careful...
