all in all ill have about 3 different case runs. but theres one that im positive will work and turn out the best... it will look good but the design may be a bit boring to the eye... squarish... but who gives a crap right? as long as it looks ok and work perfectly its all the same.

Yeah and once you're done you can always build another with a cooler looking case. It's always to do things one step at a time and not get too ahead of yourself.

ok so i did something today because i got bored waiting for parts to come in. now you can plug audio and video into the tv and play it as a home console as well as a portable. just one more thing to add to the features list.

EDIT: also i forgot to mention that i replaced my speakers with playstation1 speakers. the sound is much better and also louder

If you're getting bored while waiting for parts to show up why not start a new project while waiting? I have many boxes full of "will mod when I find the time" stuff.

Green, because I've never seen a green portable before, and it's a primary colour.

one more update
heres the bottom side. on the far right there are two small holes. those are for earphones. then in the middle theres a second controller port. then on the left bottom theres a switch hole. (its not very neatly cut but it doesnt need to be. youll see later why) and then above it is my charging hole.

I've broken parts of large speaker paper and fixed it with hot glue. A good modder learns how to fix his / her mistakes.
