vgPocket LCD datasheet

If you're making a portable you probably need something to watch it on. (Unless you want to guess what's happening in the game, but I wouldn't advise that) Anyway, this forum is your "Hacking a pocket TV/screen" one-stop solution. Share your experiences and knowledge here.

I got one for christmas two years ago. And it's the only other newer game system I have other than a first version gba. So I am not going to mod it's screen for a while.

Who knows if the Namco Portable will ever become a reality? :P

sorry about the "bump"

Do I have to have a driver for this screen? Because I just look at the pfd file and saw nothing about a driver.

Does anyone have any pictures of the guts of this thing? Also, how good is the screen. I read a thread over at atariage.com and they said it wasn't so great.

But mostly pictures please. Or at the very least dimensions of the guts.
Hey, sup?

Sorry to post in an old thread, but has anyone come close to figuring out if these are usable?

From what I gather, no model, other than perhaps the orginal poster's vgPocket Max, has that screen. All others report what seems to be a raw LCD, and is what is in my vgPocket Caplet.

Has anyone hacked the MAX to run NES ROMs yet? The thing has got to be a NES on a chip.

While I do still care, the chances of seeing any new developments regarding this thing is highly unlikely.
