How to build a OnLive portable (info)

Post by WTB360LABTOP » Mon Aug 01, 2011 3:15 pm

Onlive Micro systems are an awesome system to portablize, not only are they fun but they are TINY! Because they are so small I decided to make a step by step guide on how to make one portable.

I haven't tried this, but because of their simplicity I know this method will work

Required:
Onlive Micro System
onlive.com

Battery

Step Up

Female Connector

Charger

with 2.5mm plug attachment

ZN40 (or desired case)
polycase.com

DPDT Switch

Screen (Any 5-7", buy an 2.5mm extra male adapter, my screen comes with one)

Onlive Component Adapter

Instructions:

1. Open up the ZN40 to two halves

2. On the front (smooth side without bumps) take your screen, put it on top and trace around with a pencil.

3. Lay your battery across the back, cover it with electrical tape and hot glue it into place

4. Get a dremel (or any cutting/rotary tool) and put on a rotary cutter (big spinning wheel with blades) and cut out your outline

5. The Onlive System is already small and doesnt have to be taken apart, so just put it a corner and hot glue it into place.

6. With your cutout section, put your screen on the inside and hot glue it into place.

7. Put your two halves next to each other and plug the component cable into your screen.

8. Cut the cable apart (The one section going from the system to the power block) and locate the positive and ground

Wire it like this

Hot glue everything into place and drill a hole for the charging jack and the LCD buttons and your done

Left Is to charge, the middle is off, and the right is play :)

I am planning on it. I was making a Xbox WVI with the screen I posted, but I never bought a transmitter so I will make this instead. I have everything but the console.
