    Was going to become a wii portable but decided to make it into a home console instead.

    It's a Wii in a N64 case :mrgreen:

    Features
    Softmodded Wii
    Wiikey Fusion instead of disc drive
    USB slot for game loading
    GC controller 1-4
    Internal 64MB Slot A GC memory card
    Slot B for homebrews/copying
    Sync button hidden in vent hole
    Functioning power and reset buttons

    Doesn't have the normal Wii SD slot as I ruined it during trimming :mad:

    Backside - Sensor bar, full video out, USB, standard Wii power plug

    Tried to make it with as little casework as possible, making it look as much a stock N64 as possible.

    Looks great!

    Now, for extra style points, put the Wii power adapter into the N64 power adapter. :awesome:

    It makes zero sense....

    therefore I love it just for being different!

    Next time make the GC ports flush with the case so you can use wavebirds.

    Hey how does the led thing work?

    Iirc positive is shared 12V and ground goes to two resistors just above the original led. I noted it down in a picture, can post it when I get home Sunday.
    Will do, have never owned wave birds so didn't know that was needed

    This is actually really cool. You should make a video of it playing N64 VC games .

    Re: Wii in N64

    I don't actually have any vc games, I guess I could try to get an emulator going


    Btw, if anyone has a name suggestion, bring them on :)

    That name's already taken by the N64 emulator for wii :cry:

    I like this one :) Sixtii4 it is!

    Here's the picture:

    I just soldered together the positive legs of the LED directly to 12V from the power plug. Then each negative LED leg to respective resistor above.

    The wii also has a standby led (yellow) but I didn't connect that one. It doesn't work the same way as the other LED (having common V+ and different GND).

    I can also add that my red LED is much dimmer than the green one. Also when I turn off the wii the red LED doesn't come on directly. I don't know if this is cause of my trim or because the LED values are wrong.
