#4234761 Brawler 64 controllers x2 new w/ replacement shells $55 shipped SOLD

Posted by Bratwurst on Fri Mar 8, 2019 10:00 PM

What's the story here?  Why are the replacement shells needed?  Would you be willing to sell just one?

 

Shoulder button was pressing into the analog stick I think, shell revision probably fixes that.




#4233839 Jaguar Console Logo's to Scale

Posted by Bratwurst on Thu Mar 7, 2019 12:19 PM

Looks like you applied it at just the right angle/position too. Great pics. Unfortunately, this is practically the limit of what can be done for now with vinyl cutting, else I would have provided the Atari and 64-bit text too.

If you guys are going to glue in your standoffs, don't use epoxy, use hotglue, it holds fast but can be quickly and cleanly removed without damaging the shell plastic with a touch of isopropyl alcohol.




#4226078 Brand New Atari Jaguar Pro Controllers- For Sale!

Posted by Bratwurst on Sat Feb 23, 2019 7:34 PM

I noticed some of my pro pad reproductions had mushy d-pads and thought this might help others. If you're having d-pad issues in general give it a try. (I modded some into USB controllers so ignore that Raphnet circuit on the far left.)

 

I believe the white ribbon cable that connects the two PCBs applies tension to whichever board was screwed down last and slides it out of alignment. All you have to do is unscrew the brown board and pull it down to the bottom retaining tabs and then screw it back tight.

#4220277 piiwii pocket

I kind of dislike these kind of portable mods because they involve chopping up the console PCB and then a metric ton of bodge wire. He doesn't show the inside for very long for a reason- it's all been mummified in amber insulation tape. It's impractical for rework/repair and there's nothin' elegant about it.




#4216732 Atari Jaguar vinyl decals for aftermarket shells (red & blue)

$5 shipped within the USA, any additional decal after the first just $4. They are sized perfectly for the aftermarket shells that didn't come painted with the logo and are a pain in the royal patootus to cut and separate from the excess because they're so finely detailed.




#4192627 NES Light Gun for HDTV

Posted by Bratwurst on Mon Jan 7, 2019 3:05 PM

 
 
Before we get too upset with Hyperkin, don't forget it comes with the Vive tracker. Those things are $100 on their own. $50 may still be hard to swallow, but this isn't an NES light gun we're talking about here.

 

A $50 gun... that won't work without the $100 accessory. It's $150.

They're out of their minds at a $150 price point.




#4165606 Looking for someone to do the GBA Consolizer Mod

Posted by Bratwurst on Tue Nov 27, 2018 8:56 PM

I plan to get the console shell that is bein produced as well and paint that thing Orange Spice to match my Japanese Gamecube I had imported that is now region free with HDMI adapter from EON gaming!

 

Is there anywhere I can peek that mentions this shell? Any prototype pics?




#4154452 Any Jag collectors know what this piece of hardware is?

Posted by Bratwurst on Sat Nov 10, 2018 4:12 PM

That is a car control module of some kind. The wire is likely an antenna to pick up wireless signal, possibly the keyfob. If there is a part number molded anywhere in the casing or printed on the circuit board that'd be your clue to identifying it better.




#4144297 Sega Nomad Power switch replacement.

Posted by Bratwurst on Sun Oct 28, 2018 8:47 AM

I've never held a Nomad in person so I couldn't be sure, but I do have a ton of Game Gears and looking at pictures of the electronics inside either, the switch (and several of the potentiometer dials) appear to be interchangeable. It would make sense for Sega to manufacture them like that purely on a cost cutting level, and reduce part inventory for warranty/repair.

I would bet the switch used in Sega Game Gears is the exact same part.




#4138491 Brand New Atari Jaguar Pro Controllers- For Sale!

Posted by Bratwurst on Sat Oct 20, 2018 8:13 PM

This is bad news but how do you know they flaked out? Did they message you that they won't order? I'm just asking because for example I ordered a few days ago but if I hadn't and would do it tomorrow or next week, how would it be supposed to be accounted as flaked out or not...

In any case this is such a cool thing and really not expensive. People come on, fill your orders!

 

Hardly anyone ever has the courtesy to come out and say 'No thanks I changed my mind.' I'm sure for a lot of people they're waiting on a paycheck (or a couple of them) before they can afford the pair, and a lot of unexpected expenses can come up in the span of a year.

 

Many more buyers would readily jump in at just buying one controller but that would just cut into Starwander's ability to move the rest.

 

I love this project, it's super ambitious and I have to extend much respect to the fact that no funds were taken in early before the product was ready. Crowdfunding just feels greasy to me.

 

After this run of 2000 is out, will there be plans to produce another run or will this be it? I suspect people could be taking it for granted that the things are going to be manufactured indefinitely now that the molds have been made, or maybe they're hoping knockoffs will start popping up on Ali Express.




#4136367 Atari Jaguar Composite Monitor Video Cable Broke.

This is true. Excessive twisting as you pull away will also damage the connection. Nevertheless it's good practice to avoid pulling by the wire in all cases.




#4135802 Is my GAMECUBE beyond repair? :(

Posted by Bratwurst on Wed Oct 17, 2018 2:36 PM

Source a gamecube motherboard off of eBay, make sure it's the revision that will fit your casing. You can get them for 10-12 bucks shipped.
