I don't see any troubles, the amount of Voltage is the same, and I can tell it'll stay at least 4 hours before discharging.
Im having trouble finding speakers, can you send me a link to some speakers that will fit or the ones you used? Thanks!

get a screen with built in speakers, (a screen that has Red White Yellow cables). Or get a USB port built into this and plug in a USB speaker.
This is an LCD screen 3.5'' that has speakers

How can i get a case like yours and what would it cost to have someone make it for me im not very tech savvy and id hate to spend money on the equipment then mess everything up
thethiny (author)  zackshultz2 years ago
the case is simply : Dried Modeling Clay.
Just go to any place that makes electronics and such things (or the places were people make their physics projects and stuff). Give them the instructions and they'd do it.
The expansion pack was only 8MB up from 4MB. 512MB of RDRAM back then would have cost far more than the N64 did to begin with and would have been larger than the pack its self.

Just letting people know in case they ever look around for one and drive themselves crazy trying to find 512.

If the screen has speakers do you need the 512 MB speakers?

thethiny (author)  FarrellT1 year ago
you're welcome.
thethiny (author)  FarrellT1 year ago
Yes I mean the expansion.

Thanks

thethiny (author)  FarrellT1 year ago
my bad, those weren't speakers, they were RAM Upgrade Kit. So the answer is No.

Thanks for answering also when you say RAM Upgrade Kit are you referring to the expansion pak?

Hello,
Im working on a similar project and am using the same 7" tft color monitor but the problem is when I plug in the n64 I get a rolling picture or sorts where the video scrolls down the screen and loops back to the top. I cant find a vhold option in the menu and was wondering if you possibly had a fix.

Thank you.

I have the same exact problem, did you ever find a solution?

are the steel sheeets taken from the n64? if not where do i get them?

I see that it has an hdmi output how do you connect that to that

What are the exact dimensions of the case?

Is there a way I can keep the other controller ports on? For other players?

does this require soldering? i know how to but I'm just a beginner at it.

thethiny (author)  Theguywithnoface1 year ago

yes

cool are these for sale?

Is there anyone we can go to to make it for us? Like a mechanic or something? I really want to make this unless you can make a video of you doing it yourself

Is that game Goldeneye 007? I have that for my wii. And I really enjoyed the build! It's a very interesting idea.

When you say circuits, could you be more specific? Would help a lot.
Srry to bother again. But can I contact you on Skype for questions because im really trying hard to make this
Can you go into more detail with the power supply part? I am having trouble.
Can you use a 12v battery instead?
Where did you get the charger? Any places not online that carry it? And do you need 3 4v batteries or does the charger cover it? Can you explain the power supply part over lol srry im really confused
thethiny (author)  El Chavito Loco2 years ago
Sorry I really don't remember, , you could however get 3 4v rechargeable batteries and stick them together and connect wires to the two poles and then connect the wires to the electricity. Unsafe.
Nvm that comment haha
thethiny (author)  El Chavito Loco2 years ago
ok....
And can you update the materials list please? Not all materials are listed in the list
Beautiful portable! I like how you kept the rumble feature inside as well. :)
I was just wondering, what screen are you using here? I was going to build one, but those PS1 screens are outrageously priced!
thethiny (author)  bryanmostert2 years ago
any small LCD screen will do , they are cheap , just make sure they have the input ports.
