    The Fliptendo (Noldtendo 4-LAYER Edition)

    On March 30th, I stepped into territory I had never faced before. Everyone always wants to build a portable Wii or a micro. But, not everyone has what they need for it. The original Noldtendo was released August 26th, 2020. It is one of the most well known 6-LAYER Wii projects. It's even viewed...

    Question Weird Screen Artifacts...

    So I finished my N64 portable a while ago and noticed it had strange lines in the bottom left of the screen... I thought maybe it needed the low pass video filter redone as I am using composite out. So I added a 75ohm resistor and the 47pf capacitor from the trimmed off part of the motherboard...

    New idea: pre trimmed wii.

    Do you remember when gman made a custom n64 motherboard that ran almost the exact same way (so that it wasn't emulation)? My idea: do the same but for the wii. We could make it the same size and stuff, so that it works with pre-designed builds. Give me feedback pls!
