Re: GBA SP solar panel add on

Woot!!! something I am qualified to answer!! Its a clever idea but you need more than just attaching the panel to the batteries. I do not know for certain weather the charging/protection circuit for the gameboy is in the adapter or inside the gameboy itself but Im going to assume its in the adapter....

Re: lcd screen cheap

I'm definitely smart enough to know how stupid I am.

I pretty much figured it would need a driver but since its a commercial unit I thought maybe there would be a driver available for it.

Re: DS buttons

the tolerance between the button movement and the internal switches is so small that even the tiniest piece of dirt in the edges of the buttons keep them from making full contact with the internal switches. Also the pivot point is too sloppy allowing movement where there should not be movement.. Whe...

Re: DS buttons

I have a Ds lite... bought it when they first came out so maybe they were improved... but I am so unhappy with the buttons. when I open it I can see all the errors they made, its just stupid. I had more faith in nintendo. I think I will "revise" the design and post it on a few forums, but Im getting...

DS buttons

Is it just me or does the DS have the worst buttons nintendo ever put in a system??

I take pretty good care of my stuff and Ive had to take the DS apart twice to get the shoulder buttons working.. I considered reshelling a DS for fun... now im considering it just so I can get decent buttons.

Re: Chainfire95's FS/T Thread (Updated 12/21/09)

Its not worth $50... I have 2 of them already, They are rare but not that useful I was just considering soldering one inside a case so I figured cutting yours up would be better than cutting mine up. If you think you can sell it on ebay I can tell you how it works and what to say in the add. I have ...

Re: Vinyl stickers for portables.

If you are using a laminate over your work anyways, why not just use sticky backed paper?

Re: Case Ideas

Why dont you just order a product sample Zn-45 case from polycase or something equivalent? LOL.... Polycase is like 40miles from me I could probably drive up and raid their dumpsters. Also I have seen First aid kits and things at local stores that I know they must have made... its just too easy. I ...

Re: xbox 360 hard drive theory?

How can you not know this yet have the skills to build a 360 laptop or did you just attach a screen to your 360 and call it a laptop.
