    Yep, this is a 4.3" backup monitor, and it's true that it's not as nice as an hdmi/component screen or one with 1080p or something. However, I personally love these little screens, and have absolutely no use for HDMI or 1080p at such a small size, especially for an n64 project. It's small...

    My parts came in! I'm able to perfectly fit a 4.3" screen, and a battery pack with no problems. Actually, I think I could fit a battery pack 3x the size, but I think this one will be plenty for the project so it's not an actual brick. It should come out to like 1-1.5hrs run time or so I believe...

    Today I picked up an n64, and desoldered the cart slot and controller ports. I plan to integrate an expansion pack, not because it's needed, but because it seems like a shame not to have on in here after all this effort. On the back of the cassette player, there is a battery compartment with...

    Today my Playskool cassette player arrived, so I began the work of dremeling out the insides and planning where everything is going to go. Disassembly was a pain, as a few parts were glued in, but I got through it with the system undamaged! I then dremelled through anything I knew I didn't...

    Hello friends! It's been a while since I've posted any of my projects, but I've decided to enter in this year's building contest with a project idea I've been toying with for a while. First, to explain! I joined the modding scene right at the end of the Modretro days, when projects were held...

    WTB Wode Jukebox modchip

    Hello everyone! I'm on the lookout for a WODE Jukebox modchip for the wii. It can be with or without the shell, with or without the LCD. However it must be functional :) DM with a price and condition if you have one. Thanks!

    Question 3d modeling programs

    +1 for fusion 360 with student or personal use license. It has some awesome rewind features for going back and fixing changes you made a while back without messing up your other changes. I wouldn't necessarily recommend it for detailed organic geometry (modeling people and animals) but it's...

    I love me some tiny projects, well done! I especially like how the trigger buttons fit, those look clean!

    So I have finally figured out my batteries. I will be using 4x 16650 battery cells, which are basically 18650s, but about 2mm thinner in diameter. I will get about 2125 mAh each, meaning that 4 of these cells will hopefully give me about 3 hours of battery life. Thanks to @eggbowl, I was able...

    Project 15: Portable N64 finally complete!

    I have used Rustoleum gold and it can get that EXACT same look if you clear coat over it. It says clear coat not recommended on my can, no idea what causes it to react with clear coat haha. This looks beautiful though!

    OOOOOOOOH. I saw these on Amazon, but I just assumed they were for casting resin. I just placed an order for that and some white resin. Hopefully I can make a spice orange console. Thanks man, you rock! The batteries for the case come in today, and I'm also going to be spending this week trying...

    It may not look like it from the outside, but I have put in a lot of work for the design this week. I went through all of my options for batteries and finally settled on some lipo cells. I think I can fit 4 1800mAh batteries in this case (about the equivalent of 2 18650s, or 2-2.5 hrs of...

    I'm probably going to be testing a few different materials, but here's the first one. It's kind of like that wall insulation cloth/fluff packed together tightly, except I can't set it on fire and it doesn't conduct heat like at all. I held a torch a few mm from my finger with this stuff (maybe...

    Thanks @Ratchet Russian, that's super helpful, I may give that a shot! I've actually been working hard on the aesthetics of this case, even if it isn't super obvious from the outside. Here's my original case that I'm trying to make look nicer: The first thing I tried was wet sanding, and the...

    Question Any recommendations for 3D Modeling Programs?

    +1 for fusion 360. I love that I can go back and undo a specific change without undoing the changes I made since then. It also has some super useful tools, like hollowing out a shape to make it a shell.

    I'm a little late to start my worklog, but I hope to actually finish my entry this year! I'm building something I've been wanting to build for a long time: a Gameboy Advance shaped Wii portable. My main idea here is to try and keep both the size and the shape accurate to the original GBA without...
