I've spent the past weeks reading the forums and gathering parts, and I've already put a significant dent into things, though the hard work is all ahead...
  3. Discussion WiiBoy Player Concept

    Hello all, I had this concept in my head for a while and finally found a good tech-savvy community to bounce ideas/questions off of. The Wii essentially has an an entire Gamecube inside of it, and with the controller and memory ports, it can do ALMOST anything a Gamecube can. Except use of the...

    I am building an Ashida portable and I don't know what tools and extra parts not listed on 4 layer tech to buy. Please recommend things to remove soldering as well as a soldering iron and other important tools/pieces.

No sensor bar makes it impossible to do certain tasks such as selecting things from a menu, for the lack a cursor. This is where This product comes in. This allows you to...

    Question A quick question about re-wiring the reset button?

    I had an issue with the board that I'm currently preparing to trim where I pressed a bit too hard on the tactile button and ended up thumb-punching the damn thing straight off, effectively preventing myself from hardware resetting straight into priiloader. Context: I don't want to make a...

    I got inspired by the wiis “art” on the balance board portable by gingerofoz before you yell at me, yes the consoles are both irreparably damaged and do not boot. And yes, i have too much money.

    Solved Trying to find good replacements for Wii SMD electrolytic capacitors

    Hello! I'm trying to fix a Wii that has a weird video problem. I watched the following video by MattKC and I believe I have the exact same problem. The screen is super dark, but lightens a little bit over time. Sometimes it has other slightly weird visual errors, but that's the main one...

    Question Should i make my portable emulated or let it have a real motherboard.

    Basically this is the design i'm going to. The part that really made me think if i should use emulated or not are the controllers, i want them to be like the nintendo switches. That means you could deattach them and I was also thinking of trying to make a dock, just in case i want to play on a...

    -An overview- I've taken inspiration from multiple users, a lot of them have shown just how small/thin handhelds can get. After flipping back in forth about what I wanted I've decided to be greedy (hence the name) and combine multiple consoles in one handheld. A raspberry pi cm4 will take care...
  16. Question Bluetooth trace 10 reads short to ground

    Hey all, I'm trying to figure out why my bluetooth relocation suddenly decided not to work, without the module connected, the trace which should be connected to pin 10 reads short to ground. I've tried to cut the trace before it arrives at the edge of the board but that didn't fix it. Visibly...

    GIBCON stands for “gee I basically cut off nothing” and it exists for one reason: to revolutionise portable wii consoles. It retains all of the parts from the OMGWTF trim as well as a few extras. For example: the USB port, sensor bar, bluetooth mudule, disk drive connectors ( in case your wii...

  20. Question Portable Wii crashes randomly

    Hey BitBuilt, finally getting around to posting this lol. About a year ago I turned my original Wii into a portable by removing the disk drive, putting a GC controller into where the disk drive used to be, attached a monitor, and some battery packs on the back. Big and clunky, I know, but I was...
