Thanks for the prompt reply. I will go to jaycar as soon as I can to get all the materials to complete the project except batteries as they are too expensive and earning money requires me working on electronics other than the nintendo. My portable should be up to the functionality (not quality) of t...

I'll probably end up spraying the case white to look like my ds lite. As for the size of the case the width is as thin as I could get it for the relocated cart slot, the case the screen will be in (laptop) will be as thin as I can get it and the batteries and any other things I deem neccessary will ...

Case

Because I am making my portable into ds style laptop it will have two rectangular cases. One for the top and one for the bottom. The top will contain the screen and speakers and I haven't started work on the case yet. I have started making the bottom which will contain the rest of the guts of the po...

cart slot relocation

I thought this deserved a new post. I have finally mounted my relocated cart slot. The Dremel tool slices through metal like a hot knife through butter. I made sure I kept my hands out of the way. It's pretty sturdy and rigid. I tried to build in as much support as I could. http://i297.photobucket.c...

Case Upcoming

Well I had to get a replacement dremel tool because the first one carked it but as soon as I got home with my new one I used bacteria's method of opening the expansion pack and lo and behold it is tiny inside. With that improvement I will try building the majority of the case on the weekend and pull...

Screen has arrived

Well my psone screen arrived yesterday and the first thing I did was open it up. It all looked good so I soldered on the connections to it and turned it on. The backlight didn't work. After an hour I realised the regulator was set to 7.2V and that was the reason why it wasn't working. Works perfectl...

Sorry I made a mistake on the batteries. They are actually 10 000mAh nimh rather than 1000mAh. Why would I use 6(1.2 * 6 = 7.2V) rather than 7(1.2 * 7 = 8.4). Can the psone screen run off 7.2 volts? If im correct- 8800 * 7.4 = 65W 1.2 * 7 * 10 000 = 84W. So going by what you say I should get about f...

Laptop style N64

I've been looking around the N64 scene for a while now and just recently saved enough money to start a portable. So far my screen is on the way and I have relocated the cart slot and hooked the power and the video out to the motherboard. http://i297.photobucket.com/albums/mm207/evilteddy_2008/Ninten...
