@The Salty Memes Thank you !!! @Ollie For the vita button YES, if it can help other person of course I would share them, for the moment I need to test it more for that I need to receive the PCBs
It is tomorrow and this is what the end result should look like :
I don't know how much is the thinnest ps2 but my goal is to make thethinnest !
*Yup I forgot the Power button (of the PMS) and the power indicator hole
For now, I have tested the L/R trigger it's a totally different design and much thinner and simpler than on my O-Wii, and it work pretty good !
I also printed a test to see if the location of the batteries was good :
And finally the last impression of test that I made is to see if the cut-out PS2 goes well and that everything is good, I only had a few small modifications to make.
Tonight I print the full test of the underside (or the final?)
The print of the night ... (I hate my bed, it is not flat, and I have tried to add a sheet of paper and here is the result :/ )
Fortunately the second try was the good !
I have chosen to keep the original color, because I don't want it black or white, and I think with white or black buttons/joystick it can look nice.
So I sanded the print, and then I applied two coats of varnish :
This time I only had a few very minimal adjustments to make that didn't require printing another version.
Of course after checking that all the components fit well, I started the assembly :
Talking about battery !
I planned to use two 5000mah LiPo batteries connected in parallel, so I tested them to check their capacity and internal resistance, and here is the result on this image.
They don't look too different, I think I can put them together (I don't really know the max gap of capacity/ IR). In any case, I keep their PCMs.
Finally, here is the final bottom assembly !
Here you can see the first test, and It works Fine !
For the moment I have not yet tested if the controller works and if the memory card is detected, as well as the USB.
I am waiting my PCBs ... But for the moment I'm really happy with this result !
In the past day I tested if the memory card and the controller were well connected.
And they weren't !
So I took the motherboard apart, and it was just a wire on each thing that was soldered in the wrong place, after having this modification and reassembled, the controller and the memory card work perfectly.
Here some sexy Zoomed pics (phone with lens)
PS2 controller connection, a bit dirty with the glue ... and memory card connection.
Here it is the USB connection with the two 15K pull down resistor.
I had a small problem with the buttons, the buttons of the directional cross have a gap of 13cm and I put 15, so to repair this error without
ordering again PCBs I moved the buttons and used small enamelled copper wires.
As I have GND everywhere I had no trouble soldering the other terminal of the buttons.
After I soldered all the components on the pcbs (I would put other pictures tonight) :
For the moment I uploaded the firmware in the PIC, after a test it works (except the joystick because not configured yet) !
And for the moment I'm still printing test prints for the top part
Oh I would love vita button models. This is looking awesome so far, your projects never cease to amaze.
What are your plans regarding the slightly faulty PS+ code? Are you planning on patching the software or are you just gonna leave it be?
