Public-Pervert builds a wireless N64 controller.

Post by public-pervert » Tue Jul 03, 2012 8:11 pm

Firstly, I bought a new cheaper USBASP programmer, and made nice little PCBs to burn each microcontroller. This is the ATTINY2313 circuit.

This is an ATMEGA8 and an NRF24L1+ for the receiver.

This is the receiver box i've built with acrylic sheet + CNC laser machine.

Take a look how small the charger circuit is. A MicroSD for size comparison.

This is the receiver before close. It was a really tight fit.

Lastly, the controller itself before close. On the first part, you can see the MiniUSB port for charging the battery, charging circuit, and the wirelles module.
On the second part you can see batteries, 3,3v regulator (under the left black tape), joysticks, ATTINY2313 to mimic the N64 signals to the wirelles module, and I used an ATMEGA8 again (under this black tape on the middle) to make the conversion POT JOYSTICK > PHOTO DIODE JOYSTICK

Really nice project.

Sure beats the infrared wireless n64 pads!

Sure it beats those crappy IR pads! A good thing is that the controller uses a kind of universal protocol and can be compatible with some consoles.
Actually the creator of this project isn't me (I've built this unit, of course), but from an awesome guy called Micro, from gamesx.com. He did all the hard work. Take a look on a video he made:

I personally find that bad ass! Only thing I would have done is swap the location of the left analog and the D-pad. Although that is really only a personal preference.

Great job, very clean looking mod! :D
