Random Gameboy Question

Post by someone » Mon Dec 26, 2005 2:55 pm

I know this is pretty random but does anyone know the internal dimensions of the original gameboy case/shell?

Thanks

5 1/2" long, 3 1/2" wide, and the thickness goes from about an inch near the screen to about 1/8" between the controls and the battery holder. but if you cut out the cartridge slot and the battery holder and replaced it with a flat piece of plastic you could get about 1 1/4" clearance inside the case.

Thanks!^ I am looking at the case possibilities of a gutted original gameboy like the one cennar used for his GBOMG.

im sticking a goac and a hipgear screen in my gbo case. i think instead of using the internal battery holder im just going to mount a battery pack to the back of the case. then ill have some extra room inside the case.
