No batteries, I couldn't afford good ones and the nimh ones I got were bulky and the gc kept restarting when I used them. I might make a new disc drive cover eventually, that ones pretty bad. No speakers either, but Its got a headphone jack. The case bulges a bit at the bottom, because the mobo and wires pushes it out a lot. For the triggers, I used 5 momentary switches. One for z, two for each trigger. The back ones replace the analog function, and the closer switches are for the "click" of the trigger.

Overall, It could have been waaayyyy better, but I learned a lot making it, and it was fun. Its also quite fun to play!

EDIT made a crappy video... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y7bHEVn4 ... ideo_title" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Congrats on a working portable! The GC's not an easy one to start with, so you should feel good about that. I hope to see more work from you. :)

Fantastic work! Great job for a first try! Especially as challenging as the Gamecube is.

The portable is about a month old, and it works great! As for how old the actual gamecube inside of it is, I don't know, I got it on ebay.

I made a new DD cover, and installed a xenogc chip. I will likely make a better video in the next few days.
