N64 Wireless Controller

Has anyone been able to make a wireless n64 controller? I've been searching on the internet and the closest i think anyone has come is this. unfortunately, the wireless controller wasn't finished and if it was, it wasn't posted. anyway, if anyone has any information on how this can be done or, dare i say it, post an instructable i would be extremely grateful.

N64 security screws

Does anybody know how to open up an n64 without buying a special screw driver? I'm going to make an instructable on how to make a cheap, good, desktop power supply out of the n64 powersupply. If you look at it's specs it's pretty good for it's size! 3.3 volts at 2.2 amps and 12 volts at .8 amps. I'm going to but a boost circuit in and get 5 volts too (didn't want to use a 7805, if you're going to be using the 12 volts you want all the amps you want, plus what project uses 2.2 amps of 3.3 volts?). Plus I'm going to make it so that you can still use it as a power supply for the n64, and it won't be ugly.

N64 Controller to PC

Hey guys, I recently pulled out my N64 and played Mario Kart 64 for some old-time fun. It was a rush.Anyways, I saw a video on youtube of someone who hooked up their N64 controller to their PC, and all the buttons worked.Now I recently saw an instructable on something similar to this:https://www.instructables.com/id/SNES-to-Parallel-Port/But I'm not sure if that same method would work or not.I also found this: http://arcadecontrols.com/Mirrors/emulatronia/n64pad/index.htmWhich is pretty much what I'm looking for, but I want to see if there's another way that doesn't involve the creation of a circuit with IC Chips.Anyone know? THanks.

Handhend Nintendo 64 (Nicknamed the Retro64!)

Many of you have seen my NES portable Instructable. Hopefully it was helpful to those of you wanting to make your own portables.Gathering information from www.forums.benheck.com (of which I am a member) I build a Nintendo64 portable. :D N64 is my favorite system, and I figured it'd provide an interesting challenge. I decided to make it the smallest while I'm at it, and this N64 portable is currently the smallest ever made.You can see the News topic here, (has much more pictures) and the 22-page WIP topic here.Just so you know in advance, I am not making an Instructable for this one. There is tons of information in the N64 section at the forums, and the N64's board is extremely well-labeled anyway.Comments? :)

is there a decent-ish nintendo64 clone i could use for portability conversion? Answered

Been looking for a Nintendo 64 (first pic, quite obviously) for a conversion project, but i don't want to use an official system for it, cus they are what they are. so i remembered when i was shopping for a new NES ( i got mine from my grandma, and it almost never works. no reflection on her, but more a reflection on the connectors used in the system) and i saw a few that were not made by Nintendo, one specifically that i saw, was the Retro-Duo (Second Pic) which can hookup super-Nintendo cartridges, and NES carts. so after i remembered that, i thought that an N64 clone would be good for a conversion experiment. anyone got an idea as to where to find them? i searched eBay, but nothing came up but clone-wars stuff

Amount of video sections and duration you can use in a single INstructable?

I intend to upload my step-by-step video guide to making a Nintendo N64 console system into a handheld portable device; am currently about 60% completed in the project and uploaded about 10 videos to YouTube to cover the project up to this point.  By the time the project finishes, I could be needing about 20-25 videos, up to 10 mins long each. My intention is to upload the videos to this site for others to see; so my question is this - would I be able to post this volume of videos to this site on one topic; or would I need to put all the videos together? I have only just joined Instructables so a noob here, so would appreciate your comments and advice.  To give an idea of the videos I have for the N64 project so far,   http://moddedbybacteria.wordpress.com/retro-console-system-modding-guides/nintendo-n64-video-guide-log/ Better I ask at this stage! Obviously I intend to upload many other videos in the future, however this biggie might be the first one I upload here.

Does anyone know a super simple game console hook-up? I don't really know much about circuit boards, and electronics, but I'd like to learn.

Fixing A CRT TV

I am planning on buying some classic consoles soon, (NES,SNES,SEGA Genesis,N64, etc) and I want to be able to play them on the kind of screen they were made for, a CRT. I have one that a friend gave me, but due to being moved a lot, and probably not gently, the picture has fallen out of alignment. Specifically it cuts off a large portion of the screen on the left, (leaving a thick space of black on the right) and is at a slight angle. It is not all that big of a shift, but it is a real pain in games with items in that section, because ammo counts, health bars, treasure chests, and even chunks of text can be hidden in that space. Could anyone tell me how to fix this issue? And how hard it is to do?
