CTFan's Sega Neso!

Post by CronoTriggerfan » Sat Aug 11, 2007 7:57 pm

Yep, it's finally done, my Genesis Portable, dubbed the Sega Neso! :D (An e-cookie to anyone who can guess why.) I'm pretty proud of it, this is my first real experience using bondo and such, and I'm happy with the results. I learned a lot and am fairly confident that my next attempt will be damn near perfect!

A few features...
Uses a HipGear screen, with volume, color, contrast, and brightness pots
LED modded screen
6-button controller
GameBoy Color D-Pad
~10 hours of battery life
Genesis 3 mobo
Dual power switches, the second controlling only the screen and controller, for maximum battery life
3.5mm Headphone Jack
2 player port, 1 player external jack

Video:
Coming soon!

Picture time!

Hope you guys like it! Though the Genesis isn't exactly my favorite system out there, this is probably my favorite portable that I have made so far. The case feels much more solid, and the wiring job G-Force did for me ensures that it'll last a good while! Leave your comments here, and thanks for looking!

Looks nice, but does the game get in the way when playing? And what kind of batteries?

I was thinking the <i>same</i> thing Vskid :P Nice portable! I really like it. And you <i>had</i> to put in that GB D-Pad thing, as <i>something</i> Nintendo had to be on it... :D . you lose points for having it done by G-Force, but I understand you hate the ribbon cable... and while messing with it, you accidentally dropped your Genesis :shock: . It's awesome still.

And I have <i>no</i> idea why you named it the neso...

Nice! I like the GBC D-pad. That was the first D-pad I ever owned. *reminisces*

What's with the Serial/VGA/whatever they are ports? :?

External controllers :lol:

As said before, the cart would seem to be in the way, but it looks sweet.

Nice job man, i like the look of it. It suits the Genesis well. Does the Genesis Cartridge cast a shadow over the screen at all? It just look like it kinda would.

If you were standing above a light, it would... It is very unlikely because the cart is <i>below</i> the screen...

If your computer is upside down, then yes... (I think so...) seeing as you thought the cart was on top of the screen...)

Thats cool but you have a OQO, If I had one I think I would just be online all the time. But again nice job.
