    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...

    Worklog WiiBoy Color Worklog

    My 3D printer killed itself again and rather than deal with that problem I decided to work on another project. It's still in the early phases, but here's the plan: I've been wanting to do a Wiiboy-esque portable pretty much since I saw the original Wiiboy, and I'm finally getting around to...

    Model Louii CAD Files

    I've decided to go ahead and release the Louii's CAD files and a rough BOM for anyone who would like to build their own. I've included both the STLs and the Inventor .ipt files so that you can tweak the design if you would like. Aside from a few tweaks to the internals, this case is identical...

    The Louii

    This is the Louii The goal was to capture the beauty and grace of Louie from the Pikmin series, but unfortunately I completely overshot. Features: Beautiful custom molded Switch buttons and joysticks. If you aren't using Madmorda buttons in a portable in 2019 then you'd better be molding...

    [SOLD] - Ice Blue G-Wii Case

    Howdy! I recently picked up a 3D printer, and as a test I printed out a G-Wii case to make sure it prints well. I'm pleased with the results, but I also don't really have any plans to build a G-Wii in the near future so I'm selling the case. I am asking $35 plus shipping for the case. If...

    Worklog The WaluWiigi 2.0 (final name)

    OH BABY IT'S TIME After the original WaluWiigi took the 2017 contest by storm and generated a whopping 3 votes overall, I've decided to duplicate that success with a successor. The WaluWiigi 2.0 is going to take everything I've learned from my past two years in the portbalizing community and...

    The Waker v2 - Louii Worklog

    Over the past 6 or so months, I've put in a lot of time with the original Waker of the Wiind and have been really pleased with how it runs. That being said, it's certainly not perfect, and so since I've got some parts laying around that could use a home I figure I'll revamp the case and tweak...

    MGC 2019 - The True BitBuilt Experience

    So there was a party this last weekend. All 3600 of you were invited but I guess y'all didn't think this was worthy of your attention? Time to prove you wrong. This thread is for any and all images relating to MGC, I just don't want a repeat of last year where the images all got put in a...

    Guide The Exhaustive Wii Trimming and Troubleshooting FAQ

    Trimming a motherboard is generally the most daunting part of any portable. It's scary, there's no way around that. The goals of this long list are to help people feel more comfortable with the idea of trimming, preemptively answer a lot of questions people may have about trimming, and help...

    The Waker of the Wiind

    My first post in the cutting edge and boy does it feel good. The quest of a year and a half of trying to build a working Wii portable finally came to a close when I screwed this guy shut a couple hours ago. Meet your Waker: I am so happy with how this turned out. It works, it's super...

    Guide Building Internal USB Drives Into Portables

    The ability to use USB to run homebrews and such is awesome because of how easy it is to transfer new software and games onto it, but it's not totally perfect. The tiny USB drive in the BOM is super cool, but I can’t even count how many times I’ve set it down somewhere and couldn’t find it for...

    Nintendo Switch Joysticks on Other Consoles

    3DS sliders have been the norm for most Wii portables for just about forever, but understandably people have been searching for options more akin to standard joysticks for reasons of comfort. Nintendo Switch joysticks are an obvious source of interest because of their size, but up until...

    [SOLD] 5 inch TFT Monitor

    Hey everyone! I ordered a screen a couple of months ago from China for use with my next portable. It works great, but I'm probably going to end up using a different screen in the project, so I don't really have a use for this one. It's the same screen I used in the WaluWiigi. Nothing too...

    Worklog Waker of the Wiind - Ginger's Second Wii Portable

    The WaluWiigi is just about finished at this point, so I figure It's time to show off my ideas for my next portable. Apologies for the essay y’all are about to read (or not) but condensing 4 months worth of brainstorming into something brief is kinda tricky. As you may have guessed by the...

    Guide Getting Going With PCB Design

    I wasn't really sure where to put this as there isn't a designated spot for PCB design stuff. If you've got BB power and think it should go somewhere else, feel free to move it. For the past week, I've spent a decent amount of time researching and tinkering with Eagle. Eagle is not a...
