Well, I wish that there was more time available to me to work on this project, but at least I can report back some happy progress :D

There is still along ways to go, but at least I've cleared a major hurdle that has been haunting me for way too long ! And of course I couldn't have done it without the help of c_mon, thanks man ! You definitely know your 2600 (btw, lmk if you anyone needs some 504 500K OHM Potentiometers now that I have roughly 98 or so)!

Hmm, what to do next. I think I want to clean up my wiring to get it more 'case ready', of course there is controls to think of too....

Onto the next battle, trying to figure out the audio ! I'm getting excited, there is still along way to go, but this is definitely the farthest I've gotton on a 2600 project ! I had first tried to use a non-LED modded psone screen, but it would only come on for few seconds. I switched it out to an LED modded screen and the video seems to be working. I'm thinking that the batteries weren't provided enough mah to power everything....

I don't normally get to work on this stuff during the week, but tonight I was able to get my audio going....next onto the joystick / paddle and fire button.
