Update Finally! I relocated the cartslot on the mobo, relocated the 5v trace, 3.3v, 12v, ground. Removed the power switch reset button, and controller ports. Next is to pull video from C16, audio from their caps, and U8 wire! Then cut! Pics:

I would NOT recommend setting the bare n64 motherboard on the carpet like that. It would be really easy to fry it with some stray static electricity. And that would be awful after you've successfully relocated the cart slot. :wink:

Wow! I didn't even think of that. Although I have never had static ruin anything, or even effect it, I'll move it.
