Holy massive pics, Batman!
I changed them to links. Please set the resize option on imageshack to 640x480 and reload them.

I think the neo cart requires a real cartridge for identification (its cic chip). So its like a cartridge sticking out of the back of a cartridge. Not sure how thick your planning on having it, but that could mess with your plans a little, even though when removed from their case, n64 pcbs are fairly small.

Having a fan is ridiculous, and why are you using a non-standard controller hookup?

I like it, but I don't understand why you need to replace the controller ports with USB ports.

Me neither. It's not like you'll be able to plug in a USB gamepad and have it work.

I will use usb ports cuz it's small and the front of the case will be straight line (the normal controller in aren't straight line).

But then you can't use normal controllers, you have to modify all of yours.

You can sand down the original controller ports to make them straight and not angled out.

The way you have the expansion pack rewired in the third picture will not work. The wire's can't be over 2 cm long. It would have to be folded forwards or backwards, but not to the side.

Why not make just four Controller to USB adaptors? That way, you don't need to modify all of yours, and it would still work.

Nothing to see here.

For $&#*s sake! Why not leave the original controller ports and save a crapload of work?
