It looks nice, the layout seems a little strange to me though.

Good work

Do I get an e-cookie? :lol:
Meh, sure, close enough. :lol: Neso is the smallest moon of Neptune, like the cancelled Sega Neptune, and it's the smallest, like, portable, so yeah. XD

Thanks for all the kind words! To answer some questions, your hands don't touch the cartridge, there's a good 1.5-2 inches of space between the two, more if you hold you hands higher up when playing like my sister does. I know the button layout is kinda silly looking, but it was the only way to get it all to fit in such a small space. Though it turned out nicely, as the curve of the case matches the natural contour of the human hand almost perfectly, and the slightly raised buttons make it that much more ergonomic and retains the original feel of the Genesis 6-button controller.

But I'm having a bit of trouble with the video. I cut together a quick little presentation in Windows Movie Maker with about 1:30 worth of video from my digital camera, but for some reason, the file won't publish. The publishing locks up somewhere in the process, usually around 74%. Any ideas as to why? It's starting to piss me off. :x

Seriously, Good Job :wink:

Meh. A common site to me. Old Navy boxers rock! :lol: (they really are very comfy)

That thing was surprisingly hard to wire. Those GBC d-pads have connections the size of small hairs, all right next to each other! :shock: Glad nothing came loose in the mail, gotta love that shock absorbing miracle called hot glue.

Also, I love the name! Very clever. I might use a moons name if I get around to finishing one of mine someday.

Nice and small! Nice finish. Is the screen ok, it looks rather small?

I hate to bump my own uber old thread, but could anyone help me out with this little problem? I'm not normally so pushy and impatient, but I would really like to get things moving with this, as I leave for MGC early Friday morning. Thanks!
