You used that spoon to make those cuts, didn't you?
9 months ago
nah, but i know they look like shit. it doesnt matter since they'll be covered up by a bezel print on the screen protector. it just hasn't arrived yet.

Doesn't take much these days, does it?
9 months ago
obviously not.
9 months ago
Nice straight cuts.
9 months ago
fuck the cuts, they'll be hidden. it's the perfectly round and centered button holes you should be impressed by.
9 months ago
The lettering looks smudged
9 months ago
that's the better one of the 2 black cases i got. i already opened a complaint ticket with the seller, gonna get 2 more shells free of charge. but since i suspect they'll look shit as well i started buying broken old gameboys as well, i'm currently dismantling the second one, gonna bleach it tomorrow.
9 months ago
I was just kidding. I remembered seeing you write something aboot the smudged letters.
9 months ago
oh yeah, i remember. this lettering is okayish actually but still not as crisp as on a genuine gameboy. the other black case i got was just atrocious with tiny blue specks between some of the letters.

those NES style buttons are gorgeous

They certainly mask the fabrication failure a little bit

fabriwhaaaaaaa???

Exactly!!!

the x hole is slightly off-center and has a tiny bit of an egg shape going on, but if you don't know you can't tell. especially not on that shitty pic.

hint for gluing in button wells: stick a button through from the other side to properly center the well, then apply dabs of super glue on the outside of the well with a q-tip. apply pressure, done.

i found that out after covering everything in glue, misaligning one of the wells and being forced to rip off and almost wreck the well cuz the button would not go through.
9 months ago
I just sent you an email on that....

Too funny....

I hate when I hit the x hole slightly off-center.

I keep wondering why he replies to someone that can't see his dumb comments.

oh that is the pc. i rarely mucho on the pc, i usually find better stuff to do while sitting in front of it.
9 months ago
Eh, only time I Mucho lately is on the pc. That way I can utilize blocks when necessary.
9 months ago
None of your comments change the fact that its a piece of shite

parroted like a true parrot man.
9 months ago
Just a fact jack
9 months ago
no, it isn't. it's an opinion.

you suck at words as if they were fries penor.
9 months ago
No it's not just an opinion. It's there in the picture, you can plainly see it sucks....fact.
9 months ago
no, that is what you see. that is your opinion. you retard.
9 months ago
If I can see the cuts are shite, then their shite. That's a fact that the cuts are shite
9 months ago
Are you saying the cuts are good?
9 months ago
they will be hidden ffs, i did not give shits about them looking nice
9 months ago
Didn't think so, because its a fact that they are shit.
9 months ago
Hidden or not, we all will know that it's shit underneath
9 months ago
that's like saying "that car is shit cuz the underside isn't painted"
9 months ago
No twisting
9 months ago
It's shit now and will be shit after
9 months ago
god, it just makes you furious when other people actually create something huh?

I encourageed his build. Its more cost effective for him given the custom PCBs people are making
9 months ago
Shut the fuck up pussies , little nerd boys who are 50 years old
9 months ago
Those can be purchased online though, right? Or is it better to make a custom PCB for a pi?
9 months ago
I hate you
9 months ago
Damn , why you hate mako for ?
9 months ago
honestly, i am pretty pleased with myself. i screwed in the fucking unibit by hand, millimeter by millimeter.... next time i'll at least use a fucking torque wrench.
9 months ago
Origionally, i was going to design my own and have them manufactured. But, others are already doing it and selling them on the build forums and ebay. So he can jusy buy them. The raspberry pi you just purchase it... it is already built.

At this point, anyone can buy a bunch of parts, solder a few things, and done. It's really evolved in the last 6 months
9 months ago
it really is amazing how far along this scene has come since march. 3 months ago this would have been beyond me. now i'll be done with my first build in a week or two.

at least mine doesn't look as if an old man let his rotary tool be guided entirely by his parkinsons
9 months ago
well.....
9 months ago
this one doesn't
9 months ago
Yeah, it just looks like you chewed your one into shape.
9 months ago
it looks pretty fucking good actually..... the shitty cuts will be covered entirely
9 months ago
How much are you selling them for?
9 months ago
$300 USD
9 months ago
not at all so far. i only have one circuit board for now, with a second one arriving at the end of the month (hopefully). after that i can hopefully switch to a more complete circuit board which will allow me to build them pretty fast and pretty cheap (comparatively, they still won't be as cheap as just hooking a pi to your tv.. not by a long shot). i kinda lost track of the part prices but somewhere between 200 and 300€ all in all seems like a feasible selling price.
9 months ago
But I'll build you the real deal for $400
9 months ago
since 300$ comes down to 265€ nix pretty much agrees with my pricing
9 months ago
AND.... i have some extra add on features that may come available
9 months ago
For a price
9 months ago
I'll buy one off you gull, the price seems pretty reasonable, plus if you are able to manufacture more than one every few years then that's nix fucked.
9 months ago
You're forgetting labor costs
9 months ago
i'm learning still, once i got the process down and the all-in circuit board is finally available it should be possible to build one in an afternoon
9 months ago
no, they're in there. i will spend around 140 to 160€ on parts per build
9 months ago
That's gonna be a sweet board
9 months ago
yeah, downside is that it won't be able to switch to hdmi out by default when plugging in a screen/ tv since the board uses dpi for the video and not composite. also, if you manage to use hdmi out the pic will be upside down since the location of the dpi connector forces you to mount the screen upsiude down and flip it in the config.once someone fixes those issues it will be amazing.
9 months ago
Well, with free 3D printed parts i guess you can keep your prices low.
9 months ago
for the first 5 maybe... i doubt those parts are free forever

My drug dealer plan is working
9 months ago
we really should get in touch with that florian renner guy, printing the entire shell would be another way to cut costs.especially if it looks like his design, people would pay out their ass for that i bet
9 months ago
3d prints quality sucks compared to manufactured extrusions
9 months ago
I have a few places locally to talk too once i have some models done
9 months ago
Both of you must be close to Jewgasming
9 months ago
locally? you need to have someone in shenzhen, otherwise your shells will costs 85$ a piece
9 months ago
thanks obama!
9 months ago
Im tempted to abandon the game boy build and just work on that design
9 months ago
cool! can i have your helder pcb?
9 months ago
Sure, if you want the letters all smudged
9 months ago
I have pretty good luck with local fab shops
9 months ago
Now that one will cost ya
9 months ago
shenzen is just a gamble, plenty of people got perfectly fine looking shells from there, it's just impossible to source. some people tell stories of differing quality shells in the same shipment from the same seller.
9 months ago
The trick will be to find the sweet spot quantity to get the cost per unit down to a reasonable level
9 months ago
I wonder if Nixon ghost just wants to send shit to seagull just so he can get the address of Los ?
