PSTwoSP -In Slow But Steady Progress-

Post by eastsider_1 » Wed Jun 14, 2006 1:47 pm

I FINALLY saw segasonicfan' s PS2p video, man i am wholesomely amazed. Yeah i know it's a bit late, but damn!!!! Anyways i recently recieved a PSTwo and was amazed to pick it up and see how small it was. Sadly the thing isn't mine, but i think after i finish the PS2M, i definitely want to have something to that equivalent. I saw the the frankemodded case he had- not bad, but i said to myself "I could do better"- a better case that is :D . But i would LOVE to have the soldering ability of Segasonicfan, and some knowledge about the converter he used. :twisted: :twisted:

he posted a schematic of the DC-DC converter he used as in, he made it himself

Also I asked him about the schematic he used for the Small Power amps and it seems very simple

Just read up on it and find more info, it is you most powerful ally

One more thing, a decent Iron is one with a finely filed tip (flux doesn't hurt either, when applied with dentist precision swabs)

Here's my concept:

Image

There will be room for front mounted speakers, and the contoller grips will look like it going thru the PSTwo, and this will allow for ultimate comfort. A second fan will be installed, and some power jacks wiill be rewired for the li-ion battery mounted either on the inside or outside of the console. The screen will be able to fit further up on the PSTwo cause it will be led modded, and top of the screen PCB will be trimmed. The screen will be molded on top of the flip top, and rumble will remain intact. Any suggestions- a mod chip is a MUST. Im not trying to make it look like im copying Segasonicfan's, but he did a hell of a job- besides where he put everything is really the only place to put it. :D

After your PSTwoM is complete, you won't really NEED that old PS2m anymore, will you? Just putting it out there :wink: !

:lol: Only because I've got a lot of money right now and nothing to spend it on! And besides, I've got no time to tackle a PS2p right now....I've got some "other" portable related interests at the moment :mrgreen:
And I think I'll be building my own N64p, and maybe something else....

I'll sell you some really nice printer paper!
or possibly some guaranteed ways to win a darwin award!
or mabye you would prefer a custom made art supply storage container!
or I could cover your portable in some acrylic enamel (Car paint, I could give it a sweet EVH Paintjob)
I could sell you my entire collection of LEGOs! (Not really I am too attached)
