I began this one on commission 7 months ago! I slacked off a bunch because good case work is nearly impossible while living in a city. Early January, I began the PS2 compendium and other research which completely changed the initial design and I ended with a much better unit all around. yay procrastination. This is my last commission I will take on for a long time so I can focus on other projects. Enjoy.

Build log:
https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/portable-ps2.912/

Specs:
-5" 4:3 screen with VGA
-7.4v 5A battery pack and barrel jack charging port. Should last 3-4 hours on full charge
-Internal Freemcboot memory card and USB port
-2nd Player port
-2nd Memory card port
-Speakers and switching headphones
-Full sized PS2 joysticks and DS2 controller
-Low battery indicator active ~10 minutes
-I must admit the case and layout was largely influenced by Downing's N64 portable line

I love it! Very nice build @Gman.

Is the output of the video 480p or 480i and will you be releasing the custom DAC board?

Post internals if possible please :D

The video output is going to be progressive or interlaced depending on the game, there's a list of 480p games here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_PlayStation_2_games_with_alternate_display_modes
Also he linked in the first post the worklog of this build. You can see the internals here: https://bitbuilt.net/forums/index.php?threads/portable-ps2.912/page-3#post-16078

And a handful of games even in 1080i !

Awesome portable gman! If I hadn't been following your work I would have sworn it was some kind of emulation to get it that small.

I like how it flashes - makes me think of police lights. Very fitting since he was demoing GTA.
Built in dualshock 4 lightbar functionality
