Ok, it's time to get my 2018 contest submission underway! For my entry I will be dipping largely into my spare parts to make a fairly simple portable. In this case, I have the NES portion of a damaged Retron 3 that I would like to portablize. Wow. Building a NOAC portable for a competition that will likely be dominated by Wii portables? First and foremost: the name I've chosen for this project is intentionally the most horrible pun name for a portable ever. I won't explain it right now, but I will shed some clarity on it as this project progresses. (Unless someone guesses its meaning before then.) As mentioned, I'll be using the NES portion of a Retron 3 that I damaged about 6 years ago. In trying to get this up and running again, I thought I knew where to supply those precious 5V to power it on. I was wrong. But thanks to a guide I had written about 4 years ago on how to use this board (and no thanks to Photobucket ) I found the correct spot for 5V input. There's really nothing special about this board. Just that I had it on hand and that it would probably be much easier to revive than the NOAC I had mangled even earlier in my modding career. The plan is to remove the large components that I won't need (RCA jacks, s-vid jack, power, that switch that I can't remember what it does). Board trimming is pretty unnecessary, but I probably will relocate the cart slot. Proof that it's not dead. I don't have ALL the details planned out yet, but I will be using one of those buy-one-get-one-free 3.5" ebay screens that so many people have started picking up. Batteries will be a rechargeable camcorder battery pack that I have lying around and that I've used in all my portables to date. The pack is 7.4V and I'm hoping I can power the NOAC from a lower voltage tapped from the screen's board. Otherwise I will have to incorporate a 7805 or pth08080.
