Diggin' that "fuel meter"! Pretty crazy that you were able to cram all that in there.

If you make another N64P using that case, i'd pick a smaller screen, so the controller area doesn't have to be so cramped. 5" PSone screen is already rather large for a portable that size anyway.

The A, B and C-Buttons in their proper positions would be better, that portable looks too cramped and uncomfortable to play tbh.

I would say its a step up from your previous cases, but there are SO many things on there that could be a lot better with just a little more work. Like things being extremely crooked; why? It takes just as much work to cut a crooked hole as it does a straight one. Your portables always seem to look as though they were rushed and you hurried through everything just to get them done. Don't take any of this the wrong way, I'm just saying that you could make some pretty bad ass portables if you spent a little more time on cosmetics. Anybody can run an console and a screen off batteries and cram it in a box. Everyone here knows that you are capable of nice cases, so why not show us one? :wink: Oh and also, I think you and your friend hot glue need to sit down together and work out some issues. :lol:

Once again, don't take any of this negatively. I'm just trying to give some friendly advice. After all, it is a fully functional portable Nintendo 64. :P

Well, Its actually very comfprtable to play. The a and b buttons are actually more commmfortable to use like this.

Seriously, there is no external hotglue that isn't just waiting on the plastic cover! Where is everyne getting that I ued too much hotglue! I barely used any hot glue in this!

Oh, it's a design feature.

i'm pretty sure this indicates he isn't done with the case. like he's going to cover it up with the plastic cover...?

It actually looks pretty good. And it's quite small. I like it! Image

@lovablechevy: Thanks for clearing that up.

@johnbjuice: Thanks!

@Skyone:

The italicized words threw me off on the meaning.

Anyways, the reason why my ports are kinda crooked, is because I was slightly rushed, but I can easily straighten those up next chance I get.

Just wondering if you'd gotten some pics of the inside. I'm really interested in making one similar to yours, but I'm wondering what other screens could fit and such before I order a case.

I promise I will get you some soon. All I can say Is that I had to cut down a lot on the screens mobo.

Yes, I can imagine you had to reduce the screen mobo by 15-20mm to make it fit; hence it had to have an LED mod on the screen (as you did).

Thanks for the PM about covering the front of the casing, I have sent you a PM, hope it helps.

Sweet portable SS. Just need some better casing. (no really need to say that when everyone else have all ready said that)
That case is awsome, craming a N64 in there. Makes me want to build my own.
