FS: GameCube controller to Wii Classic Controller adapter

After working on this project for awhile, I found out a lot of people were interested in a GameCube controller version as well. Unfortunately, GC controllers are more expensive to come by than SNES, and the analog sticks make it far more likely to come across DOA controllers buying them on Ebay, so ...

Re: DIY SFC Wii Classic Controller

I'm pretty sure raphnet.net has SNES/N64->GC cables as well. I have no interest in them due to my shiny new WiiU having no GC ports. ;)

Re: DIY SFC Wii Classic Controller

Ah, well I don't currently have code to output GC controller signals, so that would be considerably more work, which I'm not really interested in pursuing at the moment.

Re: VGA output via fpga

Just curious, but how difficult would it be to modify this for other consoles with RGB output (or RGB-mods)? In particular, I'm thinking of the SNES, but in general terms which, if any, other systems might be possible? I'm assuming it is heavily dependant on output resolution and framerate, but cons...

Re: FS: Nonvolatile 1M (4x) N64 Memory Cards

Ok, I have the 4x boards routed. Now I just need to double/triple check the schematics and my board outline measurements to make sure I didn't do anything stupid. Other than that, I'm a bit tight on funds right now, so it might be a little while before I can actually order the PCB's, but I figured I...

Re: DIY SFC Wii Classic Controller

Why would you want a switch on a GC version? GC controllers already have separate D Pad and analog stick... also, the classic controller doesn't have rumble, so no chance of supporting it, sorry. I might consider the switch idea for an SNES controller on a one-time type deal for an extra charge... S...

Re: DIY SFC Wii Classic Controller

Woohoo, managed to get a lot of 5 SFC controllers sold as-is for cheap on Ebay. As long as the shells aren't cracked and the PCB's are good (or at least fixable), I'll have them for building and selling pre-built controllers.

Re: FS: Nonvolatile 1M (4x) N64 Memory Cards

Woohoo, got my $150 chip order in today and got all of my remaining PCB's populated. All of my cart shells are back in my dorm room, and I'm home for the Christmas break, so I won't be able to ship until after New Years, but after that, I'll have 1x cards ready to ship. :D http://i45.tinypic.com/107...

Re: SNES inside a Nomad (Pictures, Progress, and Problems)

Just check all of the pins on the switch you removed with a continuity tester. If you get 2 pins that have continuity, move the switch to a new position. If they still have continuity, you need to bridge those pins on the PCB.

Re: FS: Nonvolatile 1M (4x) N64 Memory Cards

You could do it to Pokemon, but it would be difficult to wire it up considering the pinout will be nowhere near the same, and the 1Mbit parts are TSOP packages. Also, there's a lot less room to work inside a Gameboy cart for things like the slider switch. For Gameboy, you'd be better off just using ...

Re: FS: Nonvolatile 1M (4x) N64 Memory Cards

The 4x card is a single chip 4x larger than the official cards. It is then broken up into 4 parts, each of which acts as a separate card. There will be a slider switch to switch between them.

Re: FS: Nonvolatile 1M (4x) N64 Memory Cards

Ramtron just got bought out by Cypress Semiconductor, and it has become nearly impossible to source F-RAM parts. I'll be ordering what I can from Mouser, but I really hope that the supply chain stabilizes quickly. I have a lot of projects that use F-RAM... :(

Re: SNES inside a Nomad (Pictures, Progress, and Problems)

I can't tell from the pics, but a lot of power switches have multiple internally connected pins (i.e. switches with 4 pins in the corners typically have 2 connections, each tied to 2 of the pins). If this is the case, you need to connect the same-signal pins together when you remove the switch. Sent...

Re: DIY SFC Wii Classic Controller

An assembled board would also come programmed. You would have to remove the white cable header from the controller board and solder pins in its place, then mount this board in the pins. Then you just solder the 4 wires from the nunchuck to the appropriate pads and put it back together. Sent from my ...
