    Ahhhhh thanks buddy! But once you see the internals, you will most definitely rethink that statement. Haha it's better than my first portable, but still in all honestly, its completely terrible. It looks like two raticate made a nest inside and got a little freaky up in there. Thank you though, the case did turn out really nice. :) and I'm sure yours in going to turn out great!

    so shortly after I finished this baby up, my screen died slowly and painfully over the course of a week. So that was quite depressing. It was most probably running it on too low a voltage, although the manufacturer said 5v was ok. So I ordered a decent backup monitor from Amazon and @Aurelio helped me mod it to safely run on 5v. :) it was a pain and I half because I pretty much had to take the whole thing apart to replace the screen... but it's all back together now and I love it so much!

    Specs:
    -3d printed case!! huge thanks to @Chaos !!!

    -5"composite screen

    -10,050 mah portable battery pack(3 cells, roughly 3hrs battery life)

    -dimensions at largest points: 200x100x32mm

    -component and composite out

    -audio amp with headphone jack by JacksonS

    -ds lite buttons, 3d printed shoulder buttons

    -built in sensor bar

    -Camera accessory port

    -breakout box port. 4 players. :)





    Glamour shot.

    Paint job has held up pretty well considering it endured road trip with my 9 yr old brother. Haha I still have much to learn about painting from the master though. (@Madmorda )

    This fit correctly when it was sent to me by choas, but then I left it it the sun a bit too long and it shrunk!! At least that's all I can think of. Haha so at one point I'll print off a new back panel and replace it. :)

    The shoulder buttons are dual tact modded and rotate on a pivot. I really love the way they turned out. Then I have a small switch for the internal controls and one for component out. Then the main power switch, fan exhaust, breakout box port, stock wii video port, and micro usb.

    Mm. I want to make babies with it.
    Looks amazing! Seriously impressed with the tripod stand and the shoulder buttons. Plus that case work is superb.

    Wow looks amazing! I love the case design and that camera adaptor idea was ingenious!

    Great Worklog too, it was easy to read through and well documented. That makes it nice for beginners like me to try to learn some new things. :)

    Thanks guys! I appreciate it!
    Here's a short demo video :)


    And here we have a pile of rubbish. Haha I really wish I would have taken pictures before my screen problem... haha because it actually looked quite a bit better. I had to put it all back together last night because I won't have any other time this week. So it was rushed and looks terrible! But I'm glad it's done so whatever! I may go in and make it tidy later.

    Thanks

    Gman's BOM. It's the one we all refer to for parts
