Hey, just trying to reply to the welcome thread. I'm groovy. I want to make a gboy, but the kit is gone. I bought 2 wiis (just in case) and still want to learn how to make the pcbs, and hopefully push through making a portable without the kit

Howdy y'all. Not really though, I live in Texas but grew up in NJ!

I'm here because I've had the thought of making a Dreamcast joycon. I want to play my DC games on switch using a wireless DC controller. Think of the N64 nso controller.

Anyway, hello!

Hi, I've been a lurker for a few years but have recently saved up enough to build a portable, so I've finally made an account.
Not much else,
Hope you have a great day.

Hello. I finally made an account. I have had plans to make a ps2 portable for a long time, thought I should start now... I kind of just need a ps2-pms or something, but I think this account will be very nice to have anyway. Thanks

Hello..

I'm struggling to navigate around. I've had some insider help though. I seem to have made a post but it was private. I didn't know but i was told by stitches 'the responder' is there a way to make that exchange public. It may well help someone else out reading it.

Oh this is the main page? Excellent

All posts in public threads are publicly visible immediately, unless the post is by a new user in which case a few checks are done by the site bot to ensure the post isn't spam. That can take a bit sometimes, but patience wins the day

Ho! The urge to get back into it and play around with consoles and game hardware caught me once again after a long absence. I've modified a handful of consoles with chips and RGB outputs but it feels like I'm green again.
I've been thinking about modifying a controller and when I heard about Wesks scanning endeavours and felt it was worth checking out. It sounded very useful for my project but what attracted me was more the spirit of releasing and hosting the files publicly. Very cool.

Oh, what knowledge you have given has helped me enormously. Some things are hard to look up. Sometimes one doesn't know what questions to ask.

Yo! I've been lurking the forums and discord for a while, I've got enough work done now to warrant a build log so I'm posting in here so I can make a thread. I'm pretty stoked about my project so I'm excited to share and get some feedback.

Hello! I'm inexperienced in console modding, but I've been tinkering with stuff here and there for a very long time. Hopefully I'll be able to bring something to the community, but for now I'm just excited to get my hands dirty again. I also just joined the discord and I've got a repair that I'll be needing some wisdom to complete.

Hello everyone! I've been lurking on the forums for a while now and I think it's finally time I give making a portable a shot. I think it will also be a great opportunity to learn a little more about electronics :)

Hello! Ive been researching wii portables with the intention of trimming an excess wii i had laying around. this will be powered via usbc pd (at 12v with a spoofed usbc port set to a constant 12v dc.) I’ve ordered 5 PTH08080W dc regulators and already have some 1/4w 5% resistors i can use to set the regulator voltages (I will of course be only be using 4 of them though.) I’m planning on using YPbPr component video with an external upscaler. im planning on wiring the video data lines straight to a YPbPr passthrough port(I cant think of a much better solution tbh.)I’ve ordered a nice brand name dremel and some cutting bits. I have a nice 512gb micro usb drive coming to load all of my ripped games onto. I’m still in the process of ripping games and only have 2 clean rips in wbfs format for testing purposes. Tonight I’m going to be testing out the full functionality of the donor wii with the only change to it being Vloader installed to get a baseline of functionality before i start ripping into it further:) If you have any recommendations for wiring YPbPr Component video and analog audio out via rca then please feel free to link a more appropriate type of connector or just give me your input! I also joined the discord:)
