Hi everyone,

I'm new to forums as this is the first forum I've ever joined. I've been reading over the bit built site for about two weeks. The site was a bit tedious to navigate through at first but I got used to it. I registered because I was inspired by this online community to go on ahead and build a portable console. I've given myself until sometime in October to finish my build. Due to a tight budget and my current prototype completion time constraint, I am omitting the 5" VGA 4:3 screen and the lithium battery set up (I'm opting to use an external NiMH set up, but I do plan on upgrading to lithium in the future). My prototype will not be elegant and it won't be very portable lol, but I just want to go through the process regardless as you guys were very inspiring! Anyway, as I go along I will be doing my best to provide feedback to future new users while my perspective is still that of a new user. This would be my way of giving back to this community with the little I can. Thanks again everyone for this awesome community!

Hello guys! I just started reading into many of the posts on this site and I wanna figure out how I can make my own portable Wii for on the go entertainment! Not 100% sure where the guides to making a portable Wii are, couldn't really find schematics but I'm sure I'll find em sooner or later. On another note, is there a discord server for BitBuilt? I saw mentions of one but no link to one

Hey everyone! Long time lurker, finally made an account now that I'm putting together a GBoy kit. I've got a fair amount of experience with electronics but I've never attempted something this in depth before and I'm looking forward to the challenge. I've also got a very small YouTube channel and I intend on making a video or two on the GBoy once I get it put together.

Hey, brand new to the scene. Living in the U.K. at the moment, hoping to start on a new project and figured the G-Boy would be a good challenge, so here we are!

Hi there. I am Pierre from Namibia.

I have 3 Wiis (already letterbombed) sitting in a box in my garage and some lcd's with drivers sitting in a box in my garage. Yesterday I wondered how I can keep my kids busy with portable units, (I have made a retropi portable) and just like that an idea to make portable wii's directed me here. I am quite excited to get started!

Hey all! The name's Mitch. I am a huuuuge Nintendo fanboy and have missed my Wii dearly since my mom sold it at a garage sale after I moved out. Needless to say, I have a feeling a Wii portable may be consuming a lot of my time in the near future. Nice to meet everyone and I'm looking forward to learning a lot from each of you. Cheers!

Hey there, names Themi. I'm a recently graduated mechanical engineer that wants to dive into consumer electronics. Figured why not try to make a Wii Portable (Gmanz Wiiboy rev 3).

Nice to meet you all and looking forward to starting my new project soon

The time has come for me to prototype. My name is Alexander Nicholi, I am a longtime member of the Nintendo GBA hacking scene, and I lurk in many other Nintendo hacking areas as well. I’ve spent a long time with GBATek in both fanhacking and homebrew developments, and at one time I developed a novel source-based hacking method of Pokémon Emerald that could be likened to a pay-as-you-go decompilation. Now I am looking to develop my own kinds of hardware for reasons undisclosed, and this seems like a good place to ask around. So hi!

Hey! I'm really new to the scene here, I've seen these GameCube and Wii portables a while ago, but only now have I began to become really interested in them. I really hope to become a part of this great community!
