  2. Worklog WII POCKET PRO (WII P. PRO) NEW PROJECT

    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?".

    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...

    Worklog Gamebii Advance

    (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...

    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...

    (TL: DR joycon guts+ Wired GameCube pcb + wavebird case) Foreword: I absolutely hate wires as i have a propensity to unplug them, thus I loved my wavebird.
