Now, I want to make five things perfectly clear before we begin...
1) This is my first instructable. :3
2) No matter how much you hate this, please refrain from being negative.
3) I'm not responsible for any mishaps that may happen whether its a burn or an explosion.
4) I'm so very sorry...I didn't exactly take pictures as often as I should have, so I'm going to have to assume you can find screws and such ;)
5) Enjoy It! Now onto the instructable! PULL THE STRING!!!
*11 are compatible
Step 1: General Idea
1) The Screen
2) The Game
3) The Controls
4) The Battery
5) The Enclosure
I used this as my LCD screen because it was cheap, small, and accepts the right input.
I found this thing at Goodwill for 2 bucks. Score!! :)
The A, B, and Pause buttons came from an NES controller. The Directional Buttons are these cute things.
The screen takes 12V, and the game takes 6V. Very different voltages (we will fix this later) and obviously you don't want 8 AA batteries weighing your handheld down! So I got a 12V rechargeable Li-ion battery from eBay.
I chose a RadioShack 6x3x2" plastic project box because it is durable and easy to cut.
You also need a soldering iron, a hot glue gun, a dremel, and a drill.
Ready to begin? Let's roll.
