All hail The Nes, nothing can be done to make it better. So I thought, this is so cool! I've only gotten smiles whoever has seen it. People have put leds in like this before but not like this and not with a regular original controller.
To do this you need:
- Nes controller
- Small phillips screwdriver
- Hunting/fishing knife, kind of
- Led's and resistors of you choise (colours/strenth)
- Glue (I used liquisol)
- Solder iron and solder
Step 1: First of All
Over it up, and cut it up.
Unscrew all the screws from the back (six of them) and gently peel of the black film on the front. I used a knife to wiggle it bit by bit under it.
Not tkae the knife and make a hole just like in the picture. Make one in the centre a first, then move your way out on the sides. Hold the front up, with the film, agains a light and you'll see how much more you need to carve out. Be careful with this step! If you do it wrong there is no going back.
Step 2: The Soldering
Solder the leds and the resistance together and in the painted picture. Then Solder it onto the nes board, as in the picture, and the glue it down to the inside of the controller front. Put it just at the edge of the hole.
Step 3: It's Done!
This bad boy is now ready to step in!
