Probably the craziest idea ever!

Post by Krepticor » Wed Jan 04, 2006 7:06 pm

I know this probably a long shot but has anyone ever thought of haveing more than one protable in one case?

I know there are some space issues but anything is possible right?

I guees it may be possible to combine a NOAC and a GOAC and quite possibly a SNESp in a single case with a switch between the power supply and the system mobo.

I know its probably crazy but what do ya'll think?

yea i was thinking of combining a NOAC, a GOAC, a SNES, and an N64 in a single case with relocated cartrige ports.

I then realized I was on some sort of heavy Hallucinogen

I would use old SNES buttons and arrange them in a a line like a SEGA

also i would have relocated the expansion ports for the N64

i know the voltages needed are 9V for the N64 and SNES as well as 6V fo the NOACand GOAC (correct me if im wrong, it has been known to happen) and the screen could run off those voltages.

blah blah blah

the only real innconvience would be the spacing and fitting everything inside a case that can fit in someone's hands.

(of course i am much larger than some people and that really does not concern me but i would like to carry it without my arms burning)

Well, I guess it would, but it would be a lot less fun!!!!!!!

it would be funny looking if you put games in every cart slot.

The thing that makes my super pnes possible (or at least easier) is that the NES can work with SNES controllers, so I don't have to fit 2 different controller circuits into it.

I did a GOAC and a NamcoOAC in one. Sold it to a friend though. (150 bucks!)

Not to hard, you just need a SPDT slide switch or two.

I figured that i would have a base of tat switches like BEn has recommended in his books an then run the wires parallel to the controller boards

but this is just a project idea as of now and was curious what you guys thoght about it

any ideas, recommendations, insults?

I had a lot of empty space in my PN64P case so I'm going to cram a NOAC with cartridge slot in there. Speaking of that, it's about 50% done. I should take a few progress pics.

I'm thinking about a NES / SNES/ super Gameboy in one case. With the SNES and NES using the same controller circuits it doesn't sound that diffucult. Now I just need to find a 8" x 10" x 2" case I like.
