Wait....either my Vcc is off when I use my internal all the time, or it is on on both controllers when I use them. Both have been said to be impossible on the SNES, but my unit is existing proof that at least ONE of these is possible. The vcc is white in the n64 controller. Yes, having 2 controllers...

I just got a Vectrex...now what?

VERY nice little system. for an 1982 model, they have a VERY good sound chip, from the sound effects I heard while playing. They sound a lot like original Game Boys. The $10 US price tag at the yard sale wasn't bad either. ^^ Yes, I am lucky. I am wondering if there is anything I should know about t...

Went on google and typed in "6 corners I superglued a 5mm length of 1/32" brass rod" and guess what I found. Tahdah, http://swut.net/snes.html scroll down to find the pics. As I recall, the screws for the SNES are taken off by a 4.5mm game-bit(on NTSC models 1, at least), while NES/SNES carts use a...

Yeah Donkey Kong 64 plays great on it. The DC-DC converters I'm using are actually car adapters, but they work just fine. Car adapters are actually DC-DC converters? You mean like cigarette plugs? I thoguht they were just resistors and stuff to burn off excess voltage, not convert that voltage to c...

yeah, it's a 12V to 3.3V converter that plugs into the power socket in a vehicle every Gameboy from the Gameboy pocket up to GBASP uses 3V and we can get cigarette adapters for those EVERYWHERE, even yardsales. I'd look into that.....I read somewhere you can get away with 3V on that part of the N64...

I thought about ripping apart my first generation Inty or my 7800, but I'm to chicken to do so.... I love them too much.

I think I should have been born earlier. Something tells me I would have enjoyed growing up in the early 1980s. ^^

That is just insanity. *Rolls eyes wondering who comes up with this stuff* :roll: :D Actually, I kind of admire the guy for that. The complexity of one man building that unit borders on insane. A guy who can make that work can go places. I only WISH I had that kind of patience and skill....I alread...

I just use the original Nintendo models from the Christmas 1985 carts... It can be cheaper, but it can be hard to learn what to look for at first.

NES may be more stable, and its controller layout more simple, but if you want to add special features, it can be monotonous. I have an estimated 312 soldering connections to make when I make my portable NES/Famicom unit(72 connections x 4, plus various adaptations and wiring/controller wires) Howev...

I was hoping to use the 32x since it's so small. Interesting....what kind of power would a genesis/32X/CD system draw, though? Also, are they all 7805'd like almost everything else, or do they actually need the 9 and 10 volt inputs(I think Genesis is a high-current 7805 unit, no clue about the othe...

I actually made an automatic switch for it like my n64. Basically all I did was cut a whole in the controller port and put a spdt lever switch in it. Interesting....I plan to hack apart my spare N64 like that too....and use the SCSI ribbon cable trick too....but I have to get an ITX first. I just r...

If I remember right, the white wire is power. When I tried to do this a few months ago the int. controller never worked. ...Well....maybe it is hit or miss...I know the white wire is Vcc....but it still works in my unit. I don't know why it works, but it works in my unit, and has been working for m...
