    Question Noob here, looking for some forums that can get me started on wii portables.

    Hey! So I checked out the wii trimming guide and have a general idea of how to make a wii portable (looked at a work log) but some forums about the specifics of certain parts of the process (mainly wiring and where everything connects to) would be useful as I have very little electronic...
  3. Worklog First Wii Project

    I've been reading a lot of stuff on the site and lurking around a lot of the other worklogs of complete noobs like me while collecting parts and tweaking my design. But I've actually done some work on some things and I like feedback so, In the words of our favourite plumber, here we go... BOM...

    Release Noob Cube - Mini Gamecube for first timers

    So this is my first Wii trim and case design. I figured i'd start out with a rather simple mod before moving on to a portable. THE GOAL: To create a case that is simple to print and assemble. To reuse a decent amount of Wii components and screws. Small enough to be cute but retain...

    Worklog The Beginning: a.k.a. I dont know how to solder

    So I started work on my N64P (yet to be named). Its been slow going, but I'm making a bit of progress each day. I've ordered/found (most of) my parts and so far I've only broken down the board. In the pic, I've marked (a tiny bit of) where I'm going to cut. But I want to get the cart relocation...

    Question Red Board problems

    So I hooked up the famous Red Board™ to my batteries, double checked the connections, and plugged it in. Problem is, one charger didn't charge them at all and the second one caused the red light to flicker quickly and the voltage to drop relatively quickly. The AC adapters have the same ratings...

    Solved Batteries not Charging

    ey bois so, I'm making a battery pack with 18650s and I'm pretty sure I hooked 'em up right, as my mini chinese LED display rates the batteries at 8.06V (confirmed working from my old pack). But for whatever reason, my batteries won't charge. After reconnecting the the b- to b-, and the b+ to...
  10. Question Motherboard battery issues

    So in the attempt to portabilitize a Wii I had purchased at an auction, I ended up in a situation where my Wii refuses to show an indicator light when power is applied to it. I tried replacing the big grey power brick, but that didn’t do it, and I think it is a problem with the motherboard...

    [worklog] GalaxyBoy - My GameBoyZero Build

    After lurking around in a lot of pi projects forums, I found out about the GBZ, I didnt like it that much at first, But then I fell in love with it. The reason? I dunno, i just did.
