Hey guys, this isn't so much of a question as it is an introduction. My name is Kojo and I have a somewhat remedial experience when it comes to electronics. I'm not afraid of soldering or taking things apart. As far as actual experience goes well: - I opened my old 360 to replace a wire when it got a RROD(success!). - I've taken apart and spray-painted numerous Wii and 360 controller cases for myself and friends. - I'm working off of 1 yr of high school electronics classes, so I know the basics of soldering and I remember what certain things like resistors do. This was 10+ years ago, so I'm not sure if I could read a really complicated schematic. In other words, I'm coming in as a patient but ambitious noob that loves to work with his hands and figure out problems. What brought me to these boards is my broken Wii(it's a Netflix machine, now). But I also saw what you guys were doing with GCPs and I really, really, REALLY want to design and build one for myself. I've looked at your projects(and I still am); I'm taking down what equipment I need to get my hands on(the right kind of soldering irons, batteries, etc.); currently watching tutorials on how to install a megadrive and gauging my own abilities(I'm considering V5). I'm really serious about doing this, but I'd appreciate it if you guys could help, when I have questions even when they sound dumb. I know I'm starting from zero, and I have a lot more research to do as far as power, screens, and actually getting games to play. I hope to start buying some basic stuff tomorrow(GC console, controller, hopefully a WASP fusion and a megadrive V5 if I can find them!). As for the rest of it, I'll need to keep reading on what specs are needed so I can plan this properly. I'm willing to try this more than once if it doesn't work the first time, but thanks in advance for your help and expertise; I've already learned a lot from this board and from ModRetro. I'll be in touch when I have more plans and create a separate worklog. Until then, if you have any tips on where to start after I first take things apart, I'd much appreciate it! Maybe a super basic order in which I should do things?
