The screens are currently in stock at 4layertech.com
That was weird they were not this morning when I ordered all my PCBs hence why I was asking about the one I found. Anyway is it the same screen and board? I looked thru all the technical parts and it looks spot on the same??

How much would it cost to build overall
The BOM suggests USD236.62, ignoring shipping and tariffs, and assuming you have a Wii and Gamecube controller to sacrifices, plus a way to 3D print the shell.

I'm thinking of building my own ashida, but since both the PMS and the parts to build the PMS are out of stock, so how should I power the portable?

Here's Mine so far. Just need to wire the battery holders, Driver Board, and Bluetooth.

Think this might be a good modification to the Trigger Lock? I noticed that the original limits the distance the bumpers can travel.

[Solved] I finished building mine and it detects no usb :( (RevB). I double checked everything and moved from the array to the Via on the board. checked the usb/sd on a different build and it works. I read 5v on "UP" 3.3 on power, and 3.3v on the 3.3. The ground also shows a perfect ground. the + data wire goes to the + and the - data wire goes to the negative. I don't have the BTN terminal connected to the PMS. It is just connected to the BTN terminal on the Ashida PCB set. I am using the CM1 side on the USB. It also pulls up fine when I hook the USB C up to my PC to modify the files.

Just to make sure, your lines are twisted together very tightly, correct?

Wow! That is beautiful! What material and fab did you choose. Absolutely love it!
That's a Clear Resin from PCB Way. [Solved] I just have 1 really silly problem now. I have to reinstall RVloader and I get stuck where it wants me to hold down Start/Home for 2 seconds. It just wont register. I'm pretty sure that bottom let button is Start? (Had to wire a temporary start button for this procedure)

Edit: 1 of my biggest remaining issues is that Metroid Prime won't load. METROID PRIME! The sequel loads fine.

This is how my print came back. Looks pretty slick. They seem to have done a good job. Can hardly believe it was printed. (PCBWAY)

Looks amazing. Thinking of doing half clear half GameCube indigo.
How much did it end up costing for the full print from pcbway?
and what resin did you chose?

I don't think that'd print well at all in FDM or SLA. I've updated the original files to no longer include the locks as they aren't needed at all. If people do want the locks/guards they can get them from official controllers or as spare parts.

Hello, if you use vga, pal games(at least not every) supports progressive and won't work with rvlloader.
