ModPurists Portable Gamecube
I have been collecting parts and working on this for years, and I am finally ready to start a worklog!
I have all the parts I need from what I can tell, and I have what I believe to be a solid plan for building it too.
3.5 inch screen, from adafruit
Game Cube Controller
New analogue stick cap
Game Cube (one with component video, but my screen takes composite)
I need an audio amp too, I will use ds speakers most likely, let me know what you think.
I also have extras of some parts, like the batteries, and controllers, and also a broken Gamecube from a previous attempt.
The design I wan to do is simple, I want to shorten the stock case to make it 1 to 1.5 inches thick, and put the controller on the top around the bottom, and then put the screen on top of that. This model of Gamecube has a removable circular logo, so I will cut it and use it for astetics. I will most likely paint the system in one of the colours it comes in normally.
This project has taken so long to get to since I tried it before, and broke the motherboard for the previous Gamecube, but today I bought this one for 25$, so I am a go now! Thankfully I didn’t get the wasp installed on the one I broke, that would have been a hassle to get off.
My next step will be taking apart the Gamecube and getting it prepared to portableized.
Another option I have is to get a larger screen, (I was thinking about getting one like this, but I don’t know if it is good or not)
