    In my defense they aren't pictured in the guide, just mentioned in writing. Still a dumb mistake.

    Is that why you killed my board?

    :( I am fixing it though... I ordered a flasher and a few microcontrollers, so your help won't go to waste.

    Oh. Wait. I had success without output caps. What got fried? Should I add some to my power supply?

    Power supply or PTHs? I lost my GC+ and IR LEDs to it, but basically anything connected to a voltage that won't take spikes well could potentially fry. Definitely slap some caps on there.

    I knew you put them on to keep it safe, but I didn't know that they were capable of doing that, without caps

    Wtf this must be why I fried my portable the first time... the cap must have died or came loose on my 3.3v reg

    Oh yeah, that could be. Yours was way worse though since you lost a bunch of stuff, I just killed a couple GC+s and IR LEDs.
