I’ve been continuing to tinker with my GameCubes and am working a little slower than I anticipated. Instead of dremeling part of the original GameCube, I decided to craft my own piece to mount the USB ports to the GameCube controller face. The first batch has been ordered, so fingers crossed they’ll work!
While I prefer to have the inside of the GameCubes finished first, I decided to try painting a Legend of Zelda version. How do you all like it?
Now that I’ve finished my NES Media Center, I’m working on my next project. It’ll be similar to the NES, but inside of a GameCube case, with 4 USB ports in the front. I’m probably about half way done!
Here are a couple pictures of the “in progress” GameCube. 🙂 You can see more of this project here.
Today I got the second major part I needed for my Famicom Media Center build: new controllers. They are nearly identical to the original Famicom controllers, but add extra X, Y, L, R buttons and the ability to rapid fire. The cords also comes up from the top of the controller, rather than the side, which makes the original a bit odd to hold. Finally, they increase the playable length. I’m still going to have them internally mounted, like the original, so these controllers greatly increase the media center’s functionality.
