I wanted to, but I didn't have any blue on hand.

Just made a 3 foot N64 controller extension cable. Now I can buy stuff online again. Yay me!

You see, I had this deal with my mom. She thinks I use ebay too much, so she told me I had to make 2 things using non-online purchased parts. #1 was the N64 LED swap from a few posts up, and #2 was this. I have 15-min rechargable batteries for my camera. Will upload pics when they charge.
Cheers,

I've spent today and yesterday painting my grey N64 controller white with red buttons. The buttons are painted and they're on their second coat of clear protective paint. The controller itself is terrible (bumps and driplines that're in places too awkward to sand), but hey. If no one wants it, I can use it myself. I'll upload pictures when I get the entire thing assembled, then I'ma work on my black controller. I'll probably just make the buttons white, unless I get a suggestion.

You should put a N64 controller in a gamecube shell. You'd prettymuch have to chop it down to the IC and some resistors, then do mega rewiring. But having you do that is a sacrifice I'm willing to make. :lol:

I'm way too cheap to go out and buy a Gamecube controller just for its shell, to be honest. That, and I'm not sure I'd need to chop up the N64 controller to fit inside a Gamecube controller's case. If people can get a N64 controller to work on the Wii, by God, I should be able to get a GC controller to work on the N64.

You'd use the buttons, too :roll:

Also- you can already put a gc controller on the N64 w/ microcontrollers. The chopping and soldiering thing is epic-er, though.

That is cool. I might have to do that? It seems simple enough. Maybe, you should post a mini-tut. :)

no. its too simple to need a tutorial. if someone needed a tutorial to figure that out, they probably couldnt hold a soldering iron the right way up. :?

Finally got some pictures up!

This is a 2-day project, but doesn't deserve its own thread. Therefore, it goes here.

The analog stick is a little messed up when playing with the controller. I'll have to crack it open and fix it. The L-button sticks a bit, but otherwise, it works fine!

Not the best paintjob, but it's MY paintjob.

no. even a mini tut would be overkill. all it would say would be: cut the controller cord. solder in extra wire. wrap with electrical tape.

its just too easy to need any instruction whatsoever. :wink:
