    It has been done! Since we all love nudes, here are some final ones: Just some minor issues to fix & a video to make. But I'm closing the worklog for now. During this project I also merged the U-Amp code i got from @StonedEdge into the original firmware, allowing using a pot for volume...

    My IP2721_MAX12 arrived & is working properly :) After some debugging i was also able to get the ps2+ controller and mx4sio working. Now i basically only need to get audio working. Until then, here is a spagetti nude:

    I'm so ready to finish this up!!1.. still waiting for the controller pcbs, tho. Hope they arrive tomorrow so i can do some testing. Meanwhile I printed the final case using the last rest of my classic contest carbonfil & spend some hours sending everything nice & smooth. Sorry for the messy...

    Thanks for your kind words! really appreciate it :) I did some tesing with different shoulderbuttons and the winner seems to be the classic squishy-tacy! also if you do not modify your own custom pcbs, you're not a real modder B| Today i did some more work on the bottom half of the case...

    Like if building a portable is not challenging enough ;-)

    IDK about you, but my workshop definitely says "contest"... I did several revisions on the original PS2 buttons & dpad until they worked perfectly. Also i did some finishing/finalizations on the case. The components for the PCBs arrived, too. But i had to do a second revision of the button...

    Let there be PCBs!!1 And damn they hot & fit great so far! sadly i'm still waiting on mouser to ship my parts :( Meanwhile i did some more work on the case, made the advanced board trim fit & developed a [hopefully] sufficient cooling solution.

    That's a good question! I want to use the "normal" IP2721 i guess.. or whatever my totally legit aliexpress source sends me ;-) .. I would love to get the 12V version, but i guess it's rather hard to obtain. So the options are 20v, 15V and 5V out. Given that the max. input voltage of the PMS is...

    Since I couldn't make my DAC relocation output anything but green, i disassembled the 2SP remains & trimmed it a little smaller. I guess i can still make it work without the relocation... confident that we can somehow make this work, i ordered the remaining PCBs.. fingers crossed!

    meanwhile i killed my remaining GH-061-51 and had to go full gman style on the GH-062-12.. This was by FAR my worst relocation, yet. So many tiny wires & traces... oof... Composite didn't work today, but I could get something on G [from RGB]... so that's good for me today! VGA wiring is next i...

    I noticed my PS2 SCPH-7900x mainboard lookes a bit different from the ones in the guide. And taking a closer look to the AV DAC area of the board, i quickly realized it had vias for all AV data lines. Which means this revision is perfect for a rather simple DAC relocation! To gather more...
