First project?

Post by bioniclebert » Thu Aug 04, 2005 11:19 am

If you made any, or are now, what was your first portable? Ive noticed that most people start out with N64s or SNES' But I started with the NES.

What portable did you start with?
Making XNA Games in C#.

well, i was gonna start with a gcp, but money problems dropped it to a snesp, then to a NESp , the cheapest one and easiest one .

So i will start with a NESp dubbed: PortaNES...or something like that.

finally got motivated again to start a portable, which i have...but with many doubts :S

At this time, N64s cost less than NESs, mainly because of their non-antique status. As for easiest, that would be a mini-SNESp (portrait style NESp is harder than portrait SNESp, you have 72 connections to wire for a NESp).

I'm starting with an N64, mainly because I don't plan on ripping apart my NES, I've never had nor admired the SNES (mainly because I only spent 10 minutes of my entire life playing it over about 3 sessions), a GameCube is too hard, have to start with something, and I really wanted an N64, so I bought one for $15 and a few games separately…and it's sitting on my bedroom floor waiting for white LEDs to arrive. Probably tomorrow. Right…

I was making a Portable Sega... I thought of the two Sega Portables that are the most noticable (no offence to anyone else, every Sega portable is great in it's own way), Nomad, and Exodus.... I finally rested on Sega Nexus. I'm getting a Radica and a screen soon.
