I really can see much, if possible retake them with a flash and make them smaller. The people using dialup with thank you for the reduction in size.

Well did you use an old I pod for the design?
I'm making a Gamecube portable.

I think it looks awesome, good job! Maybe add some racing strips to the case to jazz it up a little. :)

What did you use for the case and how did you get the screen to look so factory?

thank you for your kind words! i apologize for the size, i've already posted the pics before i realized it was too big :? the design was kind of an accident, i received my enclosure and it was smaller than i thought so i had to do something to make it work. i got the enclosure from polycase and i got the screen from my local plastic shop, i just painted the borders black with spray paint. i was thinking of getting sega decals or something but i couldnt find any at that time.

EDIT: Whoops! Stupid IE popped this window in front of the one I was typing in.

Great job on the Gp man! I like the PS buttons, they look good. Any chance you have a pic of the insides?

Wow, now that I can see it (thanks Triton) its a different portable alright. Using PSone buttons is something very odd on a Sega system.

Is this mix-and-match thing becoming a trend or what?

He probably used those buttons as he had no use for the Hip Gear pad itself or something, anyways, Great Job! Don't you get any sound, does it have to come through headphones (I use headphones all the time now anyway)
