I really like the color. It's cool how you stuck to the retro look. Even the layout looks like something from that time period. And just as an idea, you should maybe repaint it the same color or recut the cut-out peices. It has such a cool, retro look, it deserves a little percision cosmetic work. (...

I find that a true name can only be chosen after you acomplish the project. Then chose a name that best reflects the work, time, thought... ect. put into it. You should at least work on the details and/or start it before you name it. Plus, many times the end result is nothing like the original plan....

:?: :?: :?: What? I'm going to use is as follows: When I'm sitting down, The box goes on my lap or somewhere in front of me where I can see the screen good. Then I lay back with my original controller and play in comfort.

I'm guessing that you want the screen to output both PAL and NTSC. If that is so, I'd not sure it is possible without a bulky converter and/or sacrificing video quality. It's not just the refresh rate that is different but I believe that PAL makes up for the lower refresh rate by having more scan li...

Is the Super Joy III worth it?

After extensive research on the Super Joy models, I found many horror stories about the products cheap design. It seems there are the original ones with real product and serial numbers and cheap ripoffs with no identification numbers on it. I'm really concerned about people claming that it freezes u...

I have a cartridge slot from my old NES still connected to the mobo. Can I cut this off and rewire it to the famicon output on the NOAC? Is there a conversion pinout I can refer to if conversion is possible? And can you tell me what, if any, benifits there are from buying the advanced version beside...
