    Worklog Pi-Xel

    A few months back, I was thinking of my childhood and impulsively purchased a Retroid Pocket 2 for nostalgia after seeing all of the good reviews. To be honest, I was disappointed and has been in a drawer ever since. It's a bit of a learning process for me as I don't know much about the pi and...

    Worklog Niintendo Pocket

    Currently working on 2 Wii portables, but you can never have too many right? This ambitious tiny but mighty boy will require an AVE relocation, Nand relocation, and custom PCBs in order for me to obtain the small form factor. The goal here is to have something very pocketable. I'm still...

    Aran Wii Mini

    After a month of recreating the Aran Wii to fit a 4.3" IPS screen instead of a 5", the Aran Wii Mini is born! This design is heavily influenced off of @Wesk 's original Aran Wii design in which he was kind enough to give me the permission to recreate since the design is not open source yet...

    WTB Eyoyo screen or screen board

    Hey guys, looking to buy preferably the board only but if it's with the screen then that will work too. If anybody has it here that would be great! Even if it's a dead board I still think that will work for me.

    Worklog WiiPlay!™

    I've always found the PSP a very comfortable size and format, so this portable will be roughly of the same size, just a little thicker. Originally, I modeled the design identical to the PSP faceplate, but found it a little difficult to fit all the parts, so now the design is more of a mini...

    Question Charge and Play Circuit

    Hey guys! I have designed a regulator PCB board for the Wii: It works great and is actually quite small at just 24.6 x 20.5 mm and I used SOT-23-5 chips so it would be easier to solder than QFN since my attempt at the PowerMii Lite was a failure... Anyway, back to the point. I'm looking...

    Portable Wii (No Name Yet)

    Hey guys, finally finished my first portable whoop whoop. I just need a fan grill overall, I'm happy with it. Casework is eh, paint didn't exactly work out well on the back and the button cuts are not great and had to make a last minute change for the fan, hence the hole in the back of the case...

    Just wondering if anyone has used one of these and if it is even usable among portables. It has a yellow wire I'm assuming for composite and red and black for power. I contacted the seller and he just said he is unable to answer my questions...

    Connect 3ds slider to original controller?

    Hey guys, quick question. Do you need a converter or microcontroller to wire a 3ds slider directly to an original Nintendo Classic Pro controller and it work just fine? I've seen something about connecting resistors for dead zones and all but wasn't sure if that was due to directly wired to the...

    3DS Sliders... Quick question!

    I know you guys have heard it a million times about the 3DS sliders. I just can't seem to find a specific answer after reading through the forums for a couple years, so thought I'd ask the pros. Can you use 3DS sliders on a 3rd party gamecube controller or any 3rd party controller? I've seen...
