This link is dead. Where would I be able to get another screen like this one?It's a dalian screen. You can find it on Ebay and aliexpress like sites. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https://www.ebay.com/ulk/itm/372252509042
A PCB is essentially a sheets/layers of copper with routed traces to allow electrical current to flow between components. The G-Wii required a number of PCBs, including:What’s a pcb and do you need one for the q wii
You can make a portable out of 6 layers, but there are just negatives which make it not great. I would suggest looking for a 4 layer since you should be able to get one relatively cheap on ebay or similar.If a 6 layer board is all I have, will I still be able to make this portable?
It's my first attempt at making one, so I wasn't expecting it to be amazing anyways.
Buying all of these parts except for the Wii motherboard costs about $220 without shipping or tax. I, of course, have no experience building PCBs and will be 3D printing my case for this G-Wii with my brother.A PCB is essentially a sheets/layers of copper with routed traces to allow electrical current to flow between components. The G-Wii required a number of PCBs, including:
1) 4 layer Wii motherboard
3) Audio amplifier (U-Amp)
4) USB-C PCB
6) Screen driver board
These are all the PCBs that you are going to need to make a G-Wii work. You’ll connect all of them together with various strands of gauge wires.
Yes for sure, building them yourself doesn't really save very much money unless you build multiple. Buying them from the store saves the headache of testing them and potentially assembling them incorrectly.Buying all of these parts except for the Wii motherboard costs about $220 without shipping or tax.

Would you recommend purchasing the bit built parts for my first portable before learning how to make these myself?
How did you create PCBs within CAD?Yes here are the SW files, I didnt think they'd be too useful since most people use fusion360 or something else.
The posts are for the WiiPMS and USBC pcbs (both available in the bitbuilt store).
I didnt need to move anything around to fit the extra screws so I figured it would be better.
There are programs specifically created for creating PCBs such as Eagle, Altium, KiCad, etc. You lay out the circuit schematic, and then lay out the individual components and traces on a board layout. The schematic tells it which pieces are connected to what, so you just connect the lines when it comes time to laying it out.How did you create PCBs within CAD?
Is it just a lot of painstaking work with line manipulation? Or is there something special. I'm trying to develop my skills in CAD for future projects.
18650s.one more thing what batteries are in the gwii rev 2 and where do i get them
If you have further questions it's probably best to start your own thread.
