So I've been a long time fan of console modding, but I've never really had the motivation or the skills to build a portable. I've been doing lots of research lately, and I've finally decided to take a shot at building one. I'm definitely a newbie at this, so bear with me if I ask dumb questions of sorts. I've been gathering materials and here is what I have so far: 4-layer wii Polycase zn-45 Kingston micro sd card reader + sd card Squishy tacts on-off switch soldering iron flux magnet wire 22awg wire rotary tool 3ds joysticks 18650 batteries Heatsink USB port 3ds joysticks Multimeter However, there are some parts I have not bought yet mostly because I have a few questions regarding them GC+ controller board - currently out of stock Wii PMS Screen - What are some good screens you guys recommend? I checked Gman's BOM but most of the screen links don't work anymore. I don't think I am going to do the vga mod, though, since it doesn't look very beginner friendly, so I'm fine if the screens you recommend are not vga compatible. D-pad - So I understand how tactile switches/3ds joysticks are supposed to be wired to the controller board, but not the dpad. Are you supposed to put a dpad on top of the tactile switches, or get a dpad that can be directly wired to the controller board? Cooling fan - looking for a good fan, what are some options? Also, is a fan necessary if you have heatsinks? Sound system - I'm not quite sure if I want to add this yet since I haven't found much documentation for sound on bitbuilt and on my gameboy zero project I ended up giving up on getting sound to work because it was such a headache to figure out. Also, I generally play games without sound anyways. If there is anything I overlooked, let me know, as I'm sure I missed something.
