    Ah you used transparent film instead. Nice work. In my method, I use paint to cover the sides also works pretty good but the plastic is just so damn scratch sensitive. I'm going to try to use a screen protector and see if it looks decent.

    Incredible work, congrats! I'm currently in planning to revive an old N64p project when I arrive back to the UK after 6 months working in Portugal and would love to keep my project under twice the thickness of yours! I'm struggling to find ribbon socket connectors of the right pitch for the Nintendo Switch analogs you used, could you point me in the direction where you got yours from? Thanks!

    I actually had two spare connectors from an old Wiikey fusion laying around. They are 10 pins each, but it didn't matter to me.
    You can easily find these connectors by searching for "0.5 pitch connector" on eBay. They are fairly cheap imo.
    Good luck with your portable :D

    Ahh great! There are some 8 pin ones so I'll grab those, thank you! I'm excited and a little scared to get going again

    Is there a chance you can post a wiring and cutting guide for the boards? I am interested in building one but I don’t know where to cut my Wii’s board.

    Is there a purchase list as well? I looked for the screen used but I don’t see the same one according to the pictures.

    how many bolts are going into your wii? You have a regular micro usb going in so I figured it was 5 volts, but a lot of the screens I have seen require at least 9 volts.

    If you check the guide hub, there is a guide about running screens on lower voltages. Most displays can be modified to run off 5v.

    Where did you get your voltage regulators? I looked at the guide but when I went online, there were dozens of different regulators with the same name but different values.

    It should be mentioned that the Wii PMS is a better option then the regs recommended there, but reading through this is still a good idea. It might also be a good idea to start your own worklog instead of cluttering this one.
