Just joined the community. Currently working on a GWii. Really impressed with all the development and docs you guys have put out there. Already helped me fix the bluetooth connections on a brand new mobo that was damaged in shipping. And Noah, thanks for getting back to me so quickly about the USB-C boards. Really appreciate that.
Hello all, I have been browsing these forums for a weeks now, mainly reading pinned posts in relation to wii trimming / portablising. You have all really put a lot work and research into documenting how to do this and some of the finished projects are amazing.
I think a handheld portable wii is going to be outside my skill set for the time being. My goal is to slim down my wii (6 layer motherboard) by removing the disc drive, gamecube memory card slots, sensor bar port and original fan / heat sink assembly. I would also like to have it powered via usb c.
I'm looking forward to learning a bit more about electronics by doing this project and hopefully improve my soldering skills too.
I think everyone's portable versions of consoles is incredibly informational and inspiration. While I don't plan on doing my own work in engineering one, I am skilled with soldering and assembling things. So with that said, I am building (and waiting) G-Boy rev3. Looking forward to it soon (hopefully!)
Hello, I'm new to using forms and wii modding in general, but I'm excited to start a wii hardware mod. I got a free Wii because it has some video issues and want to learn how to fix them and install custom software. Where would I ask such questions? By the way, this website and community seems very friendly so good on you guys. I was brought here after watching gman and shank on youtube for a few years. Have a good one!
I recently posted one of my 3D printed Gamecube mods on Tiktok and someone mentioned this community! I wish I would have found this earlier! I've been making portables and custom controllers for a little over a year with a 3D printer. Before that, I made my first portable with a Tupperware container and Bondo! I've seen a couple of the creations here, and there are some amazing builds!!
Hi all, I'm a console modder who tries to get the most out of consoles without the usage of expensive chips, just like the Dreamcast vga out that didn't need anymore than a few wires and a vga connector
