Console Game Ideas

For those of you who know what consoles are (I hope you all do) I have been coding one (yeah, like DOS) and I finally released it. For the next version, I am having it so the person can download what they desire from the internet. Currently, the only thing I can make it download is games. I need some ideas for games. I cannot do update graphics (meaning whatever goes on the screen stays on the screen, unlike modern games today) so if I want to do hangman, Everytime I make them guess a letter it must print out the hangman letters. I need ideas for games, and if you had ideas, that'd be great. I did tic-tac-toe and hangman already, checkers and chess and backgammon are all ruled out, so what should I do? Thank you! P.S. For the ones who want to see my console, go to http://github.com/konix-systems/Konix-One-0.01   :)

Ender's Game being turned into... a game.

Ender's Game is being adapted into a video game. It won't be the whole book so no hacking mini-games where you try and post comments as another student. No, this will be focusing on the Battle Room. Even more intriguing, to me at least, is that this will be distributed via Xbox Live Marketplace and the PlayStation Network and not on a disc. Very interesting.So how excited am I about this? Excited enough to say that it will likely be absolutely horrible and worthless. That's right, I'm burying my expectations right next to all those copies of E.T. for the 2600. Otherwise I risk extreme disappointment which leads to rage which leads to fighting words in Internet forums which just leads to a sorry state of being altogether. full story

How does a 3d TV interface with a gaming console?

I am trying to build a small circuit board with a microcontroller that will be able to trick a PS3 or XBOX into thinking it is connected to a modern 3D Television. Once this works, other hardware/software can handle the video and audio output, but I have no idea where to find information regarding how to make this "secret handshake" between a video device and a gaming console. Does anyone have any ideas, information, or just places I could look to try to find this info? Thank you!

N64 Cartridge Mod

I was wondering if it would be possible to mod an N64 cartridge to remove the default internal memory for it and allow like an SD card or some other flash drive and be able to run homebrew games and backups... I enjoy playing the N64, i own tons of games for it but it just gets in the way lol I want to be able to backup all my games and consolidate them into a single cartridge if its possible Thanks

Mini/Micro Game System

Hi guys, I've been thinking. Really thinking. I recently found my Digispark (if you dont know what those are, google digistump, click on the first link and go to products, Digispark. They're really cool.) and decided to put it to use. I have always wanted to have/build something like a micro gaming system (sort of like the ben nanonote (if you don't what that is, google it, its really cool)) and decided that as a challenge, I could try implementing the Digispark as the Processor. I know that I wouldn't be able to run any games more advanced than pong, breakout or snake, but even those kinds of games would be enough to keep me interested while in boring situations. My basic thinking is this: There would a small lithium-ion rechargeable battery on the bottom to be a base (but still removable), the Digispark without any headers above the batteries, and a small LCD screen (1.8, 2 or 1.3 inch screen size) that would have either two pushbuttons (one on either side of the screen) or four pushbuttons configured in a D-pad style on the right side of the screen (how many buttons it would have depends on how many pins the Digispark would have open (if any), which also leads to my question, does anybody know any place to get video LCD screens (don't care if its color or not) that only take up 4 or less pins? I know that probably seems absurd, but if anybody knows any places to get them, please let me know. And just one last thing, is it possible to program games in the arduino IDE? Are there libraries for them? ANd if you can program games, just how advanced can you go?

Multi Console Av Cables

SOOOOO i've got way to many gaming consoles.. i collect them  i love them all DEARLY but i hate the fact i've got 20million sets of AV cables for each one. SO i went to gamestop and bought a multi console av cable.. covers my xbox (original), xbox 360, playstation 2, and gamecube/nintendo. so i plugged all my consoles in and fired on up.. and to my surprise i had no audio.. so i checked the av's on the tv side and moved htem and after much arguing with it all unplugged all but my xbox.. magically SOUND. so while the xbox was playing a movie i plugged in another console and bam sound was gone.. so my THEORY is this 1) Single Console it Works fine but i still have to switch the cables around every time i want to use another console 2) more than one console plugged in the audio from L & R is being diverted from the tv to the new console plugged in. but i am unsure how to test this.. and even more unsure if my theory is correct how to fix it. i bought the cable for next to nothing and am not above hacking it apart to get the results i want.

Building a controller Possible for Retro Consoles?

I'm trying to figure this out if it even possible to build a custom controller and use the Console's pinout like the Sega Master System's to be read on the Sega Gens as a Master System Controller and can it be done if I got myself a prototype board and make it myself? here's a broken USB NES Controller I'm gonna turn into a SMS Controller - so is this possible to make my own using tactile buttons for 1 and 2 plus other buttons for the D-pad then hook them up VIA the SEGA Master System's Pinout to read to the Sega Gens?

1 Console 4 displays

So here's the problem, my friends and I are in college and love our x-box console, but hate the small screen. Not having a big scren, we are trying to find out how to get the one console to have four screens. We all have smaller TV's and there is on medium one in our living room. The game splits up 4 players into equal quaters of the screen. My thought is that the x-box video should go into a laptop and then be split u into 4 displays, with the laptop screen being the a full screen. The laptop in question has 1 S-video, 1 standard monitor output, and 5 USB ports. How do we do this, for cheap? I'm thinking it would maybe work like those walls of TV's that make up 1 big picture.

Android on Wii, PS3, or XBOX? Somebody please help figure this out.

I was just in a discussion about the OUYA console. It's a system that uses Android to play Google Play games on the big screen. I've also heard rumors of an Android-running WiiU. I was wondering how difficult it would be to run Android on a game console that wasn't intended for it. Considering that their architecture allows them to run a bunch of Linux OS distributions, I figure it must be possible. It's probably possible in a non-destructive way too. Not to mention that Android can use pretty much any USB or Bluetooth remote you can throw at it with some rooting and fairly simple apps. It doesn't seem that it would be any physical modification, just software. Unfortunately, my programming skills are mediocre, and I'm not much of a hacker. So, let's start some discussion on how this could be done in a fully functional way. If you know it's been done, please post some links. Nobody has claims on the Instructable if they post information here. Whoever pieces all of the information together can do it. It won't be me.

Game Console

I was just wondering how easy it would be to make your own simple game console to hook up to tvs. dosent have to have 3d graphics but it would be a plus. i just kinda want something to play around with and make my own games for it. price isnt really a problem but even a computer that can run .exes from a cd, and plug into a tv, and posibly even play through a online server with other people. edit: ok i meant like using microcontrolers now. i want to make a gamboy like system and possibly even wireless. i know you can play games using micro comtrolers, but no idea what i would need. anyone with any idea about this please comment. oh, and a lcd screen too, so that would prolly ne a little work, but im up for it

Simple Game Console?

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. What I mean by simple is: a power supply plug for it, AV cable plugin, an on/off switch, controller ports, and game cartridge port. To be specific, I'd like to be able to build a smaller, simpler version of a Sega Genesis, or N64, or whatever.                                                             --- Thanks!!

Input on building a TARDIS Console bar would be appreciated

My boyfriend and I want to have a Who-themed room party at a sci-fi/linux convention in our area.  We've bounced around the idea of having a TARDIS console bar set up in a corner of the room, so I'd really appreciate ideas for the console that could easily be set up and broken down, as this is  going in a room we only have for a weekend. Ideas for random gadgets and doo-hickeys, places to have alcohol and the like would be greatly appreciated as well.  So far we know we want to have a quarter or half keg in the center of the console, located behind us. Leaning towards 10th's design, but might be willing to go for the 11th's more steam punk look. Also, decorating tips for the room as a whole would be good.  So for we want to make roundels out of foam and stick them to the wall with tack to imitate the 10ths 'desktop theme' and to print a door sized TARDIS door to tack to the door to the hotel room. The idea behind the party is that the hotel room and the TARDIS have merged, ala Time Crash.

Screen and Speakers for Portable Console

The catch is I'm shopping around for material to build the casing out of to hold the xbox and to hinge to the screen and I'm having a hard time figuring out what would be an optimal, sleek yet not too expensive option. Anyone with ideas?

( e.g would of chose a different console, not worth it) Is it backwards compatible with other PS2 games ( if not is there a way to make it?) ? ( Im getting the 40gig - the only model available ) Which console do you think is going to win the next gen war? ( xbox has put up a good battle but the PS3 is picking up speed fast!)

Making a personal game system

So everyone and their grandma has posted and made articles for how to make a "universal game system" that emulates the actual hardware of a console on something like a raspberry pi. But my question is this: is it plausible/possible to create your own, unique, personal gaming console? I mean something that doesn't emulate, but rather is an entirely different system (not an NES or Sega, it's a "You-console"!). I understand some criticisms for this: "Why re-invent the wheel? Or at least the console...", "This is too complicated...", "You're stupid" and etc. etc. My reasoning for this is this: Why not? Heck, what a niffty thing to have under your belt to say "Hey, I developed my own game system and make my own games for it! I'm cool!" So what do you guys think? Is it possible? Has someone done it? If not, you guys have any pointers on what to do? I'd like to do it, but I'm not too electronically edj-imukated. Maybe it'll be something I tackle in the future, but I'd like your input first! :)

TARDIS Console Desk/Entertainment Center/Networking Area

In a few months, I'm going to be in a new place somewhere, and have three active computers at once, not counting laptops, and the husks of old machines. I am also running out of space for all of these things. I was trying to come up with design project to one-up my other home improvement geek friends from college, and it hit me: A TARDIS Console. Take three cheapo desks, cut the surfaces in half diagonally, and remount them on a slight angle in a hexagon. Mount the computer towers on odd segments, keyboards, phone, modem, router, etc on evens, sling a monitor on one of the segments, and throw some random sci-fi crap around it. Throw a big light or something in the center, leave some cables loose everywhere, and put a layer of appropriate paint on it. Instant TARDIS console. That's the basics of it. It wouldn't take too much money, but a bit of time to do properly, especially the angled stuff. Add a little extra cash and a lot of extra time, and maybe use plexiglass and put some LED's as backlight. Put old circuit boards under the plexiglass, maybe use an old laptop with nothing but screensaver on it on one of the panels, and put some extra time into decorating and it'll look great. Maybe even build in an amp and an old Yamaha keyboard for fun. This is just some speculation and a bit of boredom on my part. I just thought I'd throw this out there.

Nintendo Gamecube case ideas

I love the Gamecube, it's my favourite "retro" console out there! My platinum cube has worked fine since the day I got it, but my friend was not so lucky. She stored it terribly, and when it broke beyond repair she gave it to me to have a look at: but not even recalibrating the laser could resurrect the console. She said I could keep it, so that got me thinking about what I could turn this dead console into.  So far I was thinking: -iPod dock with speakers -DVD player -Computer (not unlike the NES PC) -Media HUB (butcher an cheap MP3 player and some speakers perhaps) Can anyone think of any other suggestions? And not something mundane like a lunch box, but something really cool! I was definitely thinking of adding LEDs to it, to give it the "Alienware" look! Here's a picture of the case, no idea how this would help but still I suppose it's a size comparison to a mini-disc! Also, the computer thing has been done once before, it's called the "Pcube" if you want to Google it or something, it's pretty sweet! Thanks for your suggestions!

Nintedo Needed for a Portable NES

I've been working on a portable NES. (Yes, Instructable will be made.) I've got two NES boards, one is completely dead, and on the other I messed up the video. (Does not display pictures correctly.) Anyway, I know many people have old unused NES's laying in their closets. Whether it's "broken" (I.E. flashing screen) or not, I'd really appreciate if you'd give one. (Or some. :D ) No, this is not going to be a cruddy looking portable, it's going to have a transparent case, going to be really thin (1-2" thick) and not that big. 5" screen; it's going to be really great. Please donate an NES. :) And do not forget! I will make an Instructable on it! It's going to be great! :D

I recently made changes to the first step in my Instructable and I've noticed that over the past few hours the page showing all of the steps has been updated while the page showing only the first step has not.  By not updating I mean that the content update has not taken affect, the number of views is less than is shown on the other page, new comments haven't been added, the number of followers and favorites shown is less, etc.. Only the first page appears to be affected, though.  So, everything looks correct for: https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-Console-Cable-Bracelet/?ALLSTEPS and https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-Console-Cable-Bracelet/step2/Preparing-the-RJ-45-connector/ but not for: https://www.instructables.com/id/Awesome-Console-Cable-Bracelet/#step1 Some other info: - occurs whether logged in or not - reproduced on Chrome 31.0.1650.63 m, Firefox 13.0, and Opera 12.16 (All running on Windows 7) - doesn't appear to be due to browser caching Let me know if there is any other info I can provide.

Gaming is Changing

I used to like console gaming because systems rarely/never costed more than $300, it was simple, and everybody had the same stuff. There were no expensive HDTVs, broadband-requiring/expensive online play, the fanciest peripheral was the rumble pack, and your console didn't do anything except light up a power light if there was no game in it.I'm not rich, my parents have never owned a house, and with all the fancy crap that consoles require and do today, I can't afford even a Wii (not that I'd want one, the novelty has worn off). I'm not saying all these improvements in gaming are bad, but for someone like me, I just don't have the money for a shiny new 360, or even high-speed internet (I live on an acerage and there's no cable in the country) for online muiltiplayer/communication.For now, I'll just have to fondly remember having home tournaments playing Star Wars Episode 1 Pod-Racer on N64 with my friends.What do YOU think about gaming today?

Problem: Well basically i plug in the system to my television, the whole thing starts up the red light , lights up in the console , but nothing comes up on the television screen... i tried plugging again and again checked all the connections but na na...nothing came up.

Dual Play with 2 consoles

Not sure how many people are away that some 3D TV's support Dual Play (converts the 2 player splitscreen from games to a Top Bottom 3D Image and has the option for the 3d glasses to only display the left or right eye images (player 1 or player 2) however many games i like to play are not splitscreen so i want to be able to input 2 consoles, and do the same so that input one plays for left eye and input 2 plays for right eye so far after looking around for ages, i havn't found anything that does this best idea i found it using 2 Hdmi input card on a PC and combineing them then output to TV but this is very annoying hopfully someone here knows of an easyer way, or a way i can work around this basicly i would think there would be something out there for this, for example to be used with displaying 2 cameras on a 3d display in realtime (thats kinda what i'm wanting to do just with games) Thanks

Best way to mount video game controllers to a shelf?

I don't know if this is the right place. The forum structure is confusing. Anyways, I'm building a shelf (well, it's a bit more than just a shelf) to hold all of my video game consoles. I'm planning to make an instructable for the shelf as well, but I've hit a roadblock. I want to mount all of my controllers to the shelves in front of their respective consoles. The shelves themselves are 5/8 inches thick, so I may have to be a bit conservative with drilling and the like. Anyways, the hooks have to be different for each console, since the controllers are all different shapes and sizes. Also, I want it to cost effective. I'm not planning on spending $45 just to mount controllers to a shelf. I was thinking of using some sort of wire that isn't malleable enough to bend under the weight. I could form them to the shape I need and it'd probably work pretty well. I just need some way of mounting them. I could maybe drill holes of the same size and put the wire in there, but who knows what that would do to the shelf integrity. Basically, I'm either asking for some ideas for mounting the wires to the shelf, or other ways of mounting the controllers themselves to the shelf. Any and all help is welcome. I apologize if this is in the wrong forum.

For an idea of how much room I need I have an Nes, Snes, Atari, N64, Ps2, Xbox, Wii and i would like a few extra in case i get more. I also need space for games and accessories. Does anybody have any ideas for how i could make this look really cool? Thanks.

Don't Press The reset button while saving your PS2!

 So.... I was playing NFS most wanted on my PS2, when I picked two markers from the blacklist rival number 12, when I noticed that I didn't pick the pinkslip! (I didn't get the car). So it started saving, and you know when it says do not reset or switch off the console while its saving? Well I was like Reset Blah console blah blah blah. So i pressed reset. Then came regret. I started to fret. You wanna bet? So i pressed the button right. everything was going well until is started loading....... Then it said: COULD NOT LOAD, DATA CORRUPT. Or something like that. So whatever you do don't press reset while you are saving! OR ELSE!

( I posted on the xbox forums but I'd also like some advice from members on instructables since many of you have knowledge in electronics. ) Anyways so here is my problem... I recently just bought a 360 Wireless Adapter so I can play on Xbox Live, but the signal strength is weak because the unit is in the basement and the router is on the second level of the house. Can I attach a USB extension cable (a male and female end) of 15ft to the console onto the adapter so I can relocate the wireless adapter to a different location in my basement where the signal strength is stronger. Can this cause the unit to overheat or cause any other damage because im making the console work harder adding the 15ft usb cable?

What to do with a broken Xbox 360

I have an Xbox 360 from a few years ago and It is completely dead. It caught the Red Ring of Death so I sold everything except the console itself; that includes wires. I'm looking for something interesting to do with it other than throw it out or fix it since I will be getting another one later in the month.

Circuit to flash a bank of lights

I have a bank of 30 x 6 volt lamps in an old computer console and I am trying to find a circuit to flash them in a random pattern. Ideally the lamps will be driven from a chip rather than individual transistors. I'm perfectly capable of building the circuit, but not designing it. Can anyone point me in the right direction please? Thank you.
