Yeah, I am doing like everyone else
I am building a n64 portable that im calling Tapio64.
It wont be anything special, no rcp wiring, trimming or such. I wont even relocate the cart slot, the cart will just stick out of the back. I am using a 3.5" ebay screen.
This is what I have done so far:
-Removed expansion port and resoldered cart slot
-Wired up PTH08080 for 3.3v
-Wired up my amp and added volume pot
-Reinforced the top of my case, put in botton holes
-Cut of D-pad part of the controller
I have pretty much everything I need, exept batteries. I can't buy from batteryspace, since the shipping would cost three times the batteries (I live in Sweden). So I was looking at some of the places with free shipping and I found these batteries on dealextreme http://www.dealextreme.com/p/trustfire-protected-18650-3-7v-true-2400mah-rechargeable-lithium-batteries-2-pack-20392
They have a built in protection circuit. I know they need a smart charger and found this on ebay. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Intelligent-Sma ... 4ab4c6dc14
Will this setup work? I don't mind if it just gives me a hour of playtime.
This is my case so far. It needs a lot of sanding
. The Z and R will go on top
Total cost so far: 380SEK (around USD57 or 42 Euro)
