    mcat's G-Boy worklog

    Hey everyone! I recently started my journey of creating a G-boy. When the original Gboy kit came out, I desperately wanted to build one but didn't have the funds to at the time. Now with Gman's STLs, 4LayerTech, and Dustin Fisher's PCBs, I'm hoping to make one of my own! I started with...

    Worklog Famicube ( Famicom disk system hardware and case mod )

    "The Nintendo way of adapting technology is not to look for the state of the art but to utilize mature technology that can be mass-produced cheaply." Gunpei Yokoi was quoted as saying that in his book Yokoi Gunpei Game House. It was a philosophy that helped shape the Gameboy and was carried on...

    G-Boy: Reloaded / My First Portable

    Hello all! I'm super excited to finally start working on a portable Wii! :D I got inspired 2 years ago after watching LTT's video on the G-Boy. Now that I finally have a disposable income and an unsuspecting Wii, I can start on this project! Unfortunately, after rediscovering the G-Boy Kits and...

    Worklog Ashida Worklog + Questions

    After years of modding Gameboys and staring longingly at portabilized consoles, I've decided to take the plunge and build an Ashida for myself. I've spent the past weeks reading the forums and gathering parts, and I've already put a significant dent into things, though the hard work is all ahead...

    Worklog Tendii Flip (Wii Portable)

    I want to make something like a Nintendo Switch, but as a Wii Portable. When I say "something like a Nintendo Switch," I'm not referring to the way it looks or feels. I'm referring to the ability to "dock" it for external TV output and support for external GC controllers. I hope for my portable...

    Worklog Ashida Worklog

    6/13/22 - Finally started work on my first portable the other day, and man was it fun. I got so wrapped up I almost forgot to write a worklog, so this is going to be a lot of stuff on the first post. First things first, the prep. I purchased a black Wii off of Ebay for around $30 usd total. It...

    Worklog Wiiclpise

    My first Wii Portable of my design. Like the ashida, it is designed around 4layer tech boards. I'm calling it the Wiiclipse because I want it to be all black, like an eclipse (and puns are fun). My goal for this design was to make something minimal yet classy. I even made my own logo: I've...

    (moving my worklog post over here for the contest, mods don't kill me.) Hello! My name is BardRights AKA CakeB0ss AKA Thomas and I've begun working on my first portable build. After years of passing research and a couple of half-assed attempts, I'm finally ready to begin working on portablizing...

    Hello there fellow knights, Today (actually long ago) I decided to start a new Portable Wii. But thee might comment, "We already have plenty of Portables here, what new ideas do you bring?". Worry not, as I shall explain all the new features in the near future. Let's just say they do not call...

    Worklog First Portable Wii

    Hey all, recently my school schedule opened up nice so I'm going to try to make a portable wii to keep myself busy. I'm not super concerned about most of the details at the moment, right now I'm looking into making a functional trimmed motherboard to start. Once I get that working I'll move on...

    Worklog Portable Wii #1: G-Wii Build

    What's up, figured I'd start a worklog for this project. It's probably going to be a long term project but I had some questions so I guess it makes sense to put them in a worklog. Feel free to move this post around somewhere if it's better suited elsewhere. I've made several Pi portables in...

    Worklog The Sandwiich

    Hey guys! I figured I should start a worklog, mainly because I have a feeling it will help keep me motivated despite things going horribly wrong! And so begins the Sandwiich, named after its similar form factor to a Maxibon ice cream sandwich. Here is the feature list: OMGWTF Trim with MX...

    (Credit to my dad for the terrible name) Disclaimer: I designed this in SketchUp, mainly because I wanted to design it now rather than later after learning a new program, parts of the case are jank. You'll look at parts and think "why", SketchUp is why. Designing something this complex in such...

    Worklog Copii Cat "Louii" Work Log

    So after months of lurking on here I decided it's about time to start a work log of some sorts. I first was interested in portabilizing consoles when I ran into ModdedbyBacteria's N64 portable way back in 2009. After all these years I decided to finally give it a shot but with a wii seeing as I...
