    Worklog Ginger Does a PS2 Thing

    Uncertain what I'm going to title this project, so for now it's just a PS2 thing. I've never had a whole lot of drive to do a PS2 portable, just because I've never had any interest in the games for it. I bought a 79001 off of eBay shortly after Gman released the PS2 trimming guide, but it has...

    Background Wii laptops were popular among early modders and beginners, like myself, but all attempts I've perused were incomplete, dated, or were not portable (i.e. tethered to wall power). I don’t stand a chance against this year's unique ideas and skilled modders, but I hope to take the title...

    I want to build a wii portable and want to use 3ds analog sticks. Do I just use the caps? Or do I somehow replace the analog stick on the gamecube with it. If yes, how do I do it?

    Question Can I use a gamecube power management board for a wii portable? Will that ruin anything?

    I don't know which power distribution boards to use for a portable wii. Will one from a gamecube work? If not what are some good PMS boards to use?

    Question I never used portablizemii before, but can it still run discs?

    Also, is there a way to trim the Wii disc drive smaller and relocate it once the wii motherboard is trimmed?

    Question GameCube Portable: Add Battery Voltage?

    Hello! So, I have this old pencil sharpener from when I was in high school that I'm trying to make into a portable GameCube. Believe me I know it's not a good idea in the slightest. I'm going for "lets see if we CAN do it," not "let's actually make this a practical game system." That's all fine...

    Question Q*Mini Eligibility for Summer Building Competition

    (There is a TL;DR at the bottom.) I have come up with a cheap, quick, and easy portable that I would like to "make". I say "make" because it actually is already made, I am simply modifying it.

    Question WiiU Gamepad Portable Wii Case

    I am trying to start my first project to make a portable, and I was wondering if using a WiiU gamepad as a case would be a good idea. It would allow a lot of room for error and I was wondering if there would be a way to use the pieces already inside like the battery, speakers, and IR bar.
