Introduction: Portable Nintendo 64
In this tutorial you will learn how to make a Nintendo 64 Portable , this was not made by me , it is made by borjaus on http://www.inventosunicos.com .
I will just post it here!
Step 1: What We'll Need
-An Original N64
-Some tools to connect the n64 to the LCD screen
-A Case to put all these into ( or the original N64 Case glued together using modeling clay)
-A small speaker ( EDIT: It was an N64 Ram Upgrade about 512 MB , get it from amazon.com)
Step 2: The Setup
First of all we begin by disassembling the N64.
Then you'll notice two ports, 1 above and one below , the above one is for the cartridge , the below one is for the speaker.
Connect the cartridge, Screen , and Speaker.
Now we need three 4V batteries for the screen and the N64, connect them to the N64's Power Source , so that you can use the power supply as a charger.
Now we'll need a steel sheet so that we can put the circuit boards on them .
Put the LCD screen, then the Batteries , then put the N64's circuit board, then put the steel sheet , attach screws so you make sure they wont move away , Now , unfix the N64 Controller and put its circuit board on the steel sheet, put another steel sheet on them. Remember the Above port we say earlier? We must desolder its wires so we can attach it where ever we want . after desoldering , attach the Port on the 2nd steel sheet , and then solder the wires again! Now we can put the cartridge on the back on a lay-down form.
You can now attach rumble integration if you want.
Step 3: The Case
Now we need a case to put all these things into , you can buy a premade case and just attach them into , which is done here , you also need buttons. Or you can build your own case in case (no pun intended) you attached the items in a different form.
After putting everything in place , connect the wires the case by using an expansion pack (a microchip for expanding circuit boards) and placing them under the buttons.
The rumble feature is connected to the case.
Step 4: More Steps to the Case (If You Made Your Own Cases or Have Broken Ones)
Sentences Marked with * are steps that are for fixing the Case only! its not necessary.
*We begin by gluing the broken areas so we make sure they stick together, Then we wait until they get dry.
*We connect the two controller grips and glue them to the case.
Now we connect some cases around the cartridge and the speaker's port , so we give it a style!
After placing these together , we'll have spots where the curcuit boards are shown , we dont want that so it wont ruin the machine. * After applying the glue , we apply super glue to make it more solid.
Now after all the above is done , we cover the case with clay , the kind that dries off , and we wait until it is dry. we then paint the case the color we want and the clay too.
Now we put the buttons on the case and stick them to their places , then put the 2nd layer of the case on!
