4.3" DX screen hacking information

Just ordered two of these 4.3" screens for a soon-to-be-worked-on project involving two N64's. I will be posting pics and a guide as soon as they come in. I'm posting the link now rather than later so I don't lose it - it's hard to find stuff on DX!

Re: Re-wiring the memory card/ rumble motor slot

A desoldering iron works wonders, and they're cheap from RadioShack. Or, use a somewhat high wattage iron with desoldering braid.

Re: Can Someone Trade Me A N64P?

There is a difference between portables made to sell, and portables made for fun. :wink: This is exactly the difference between someone like hailrazer and someone like ShockSlayer, although for hailrazer (and others) making a portable look as "commercial" or "professional" as possible is their defi...

Re: What to do, what to do.... ?

Just start on the system you want to the most - that way you're motivated. Sounds like you should start tinkering with the GameCube. What's the worst that could happen? GC's are pretty cheap now. There are a lot of people who propose you work on the "easier" systems first, but if you are reading the...

Very clean work! I like how the screen and controller essentially become just one large board.

Re: The flip64. Finally* going somewhere. *Hopefully

I just re-read your old thread and I have to say - I like where this is going! Definitely one of the more unique portables once it's done.

Re: What's this? A new Atari portable!?

Well, yeah - the boNES and the Atari portable would have been done if it hadn't been for stupid little things happening. I put in the time, they both worked briefly, so I'm just going to call it "good enough" and move on to more interesting stuff. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go back to dro...
