PMP in a GBA?

Post by Frakachino » Sun Mar 13, 2011 8:46 pm

This will be my first hack ever if i get it finished.

My plan is to buy one of those Chinese(or wherever they're made) PMP's and take it apart and mount it in a new case. Similarly to this http://forums.benheck.com/viewtopic.php ... e+case+!!!
The only difference is I want to put it in a GBA case. I was thinking of using the cartridge slot to mount the USB and other ports to that it looks like a regular GBA if you're not looking too close.

Any thoughts on this?

Also, I first need a PMP with a ~2.9 inch screen (that's what the GBA has i think) that can emulate GB GBC GBA and NES and SNES if possible...not really sure if those exist but if they do, does anyone know of one that fits that description? I looked a bit earlier but couldn't find any.

EDIT: Ok i got a dingoo. Now to look for a GBA

Any thoughts/help appreciated.

Dealextreme.com sells a bunch of different PMPs. You'd probably be able to find what you're looking for there. I've bought from them several times. The only bad thing about DX is that shipping can take ages.

Alright I'll check that out thanks

EDIT:I was looking at this one http://www.dealextreme.com/p/dingoo-a-3 ... i-sd-23032. It looks like it has a bunch of emulators available and it's just about the right size screen. Does anybody know anything about them?
EDIT 2:Oh yeah i forgot, it's called a dingoo.
EDIT 3:I found a cheaper one! :D 66$ on ebay if i win.

The screen of the Dingoo A320 might be slightly too small. But otherwise, it's a great device!
There is a lot of homebrew for it, including a Linux port. Here's the wiki: http://dingoowiki.com/index.php?title=Main_Page" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

I would love to see how this turns out.
