Step 1: Items You Will Need:
- Music (optional, but recommended)
- Soldering iron
- Soldering Items: wire, solder, etc.
- Nes controller.
- Gameboy (this instructable will be for the original.)
- Tri winged screwdriver, or tool to open a gameboy.
- Time and Patience.
Step 2: Prepare the Gameboy.
you'll need the soldering equipment for the next two steps!
open the gameboy, there's about 8 screws on the back.
unattach the screen ribbon to separate the boards, unscrew the front board,
and set it down,
Step 3: Prepare the NES Controller.
Open the NES controller,
there will be one circuit board, snip the wires for the hookup cord to a NES console.
find the places for the arrow keys and A/B buttons on the circuit board.
Step 4: Soldering! Yay!
if you're like me and don't like soldering much,
find both places where the A and B buttons are aswell as where the D-pad is.
get long wires, as long as you want them, you will need 6 wires.
solder the wires from the NES circuit board to the gameboy circuit board, the placement will be obvious.
Step 5: Drilling and Closing!
drill a hole in the case where guts aren't hiding from the gameboy,
and put the wires through them.
Flick on the gameboy and have fun! :D
