My custom Sears unit that I restored & modded w/ RGB and composite AV, plus a custom Inty arcade controller that I built using a Neo Geo X as a base & Grips03's PCB kit. I used a magic eraser to clean up the cream colored plastic, the backend was repainted, a paint pen was used to touch up the raised lettering and then the whole console was clear coated. A lot of time and work put into it all, but everything came out great!

What are some of the really good hacks that have been done to the Lynxes over the years? Aside from the McWill LCD screen/VGA output, mosfet, etc? i guess I should also mention replacing the speaker too. I remember when Candle was working on an LCD replacement solution, he was discussing adding a Sega MegaDrive/Genesis compatible DB9 port. I've seen some battery replacement solutions and also even a video of someone adding Bluetooth audio to their Lynx [it was a video on YouTube and in French]. So what else has been done? If possible, share pics and links...to the modded Lynxes.
So as I've mentioned in my "ST Gaming" thread, I recently picked up a 1040STe that is new in the box and bone stock. What I'm wondering is: -What should I do to it? -Why? -And where do I get the part/mod? I have heard "upgrade the RAM" okay great where can I get that. I have seen the "ultrasatan" drive on ebay, what is that for? I have heard whispers of a processor upgrade, does anyone do that stateside? There are several local good computer shops, so if I get the parts I'm sure I can have stuff done locally. Thanks, and appreciate the input! Looking forward to souping up my ST and having all sorts of fun with it!!
Someone posted this article in a status update the other day and i've been thinkging about it quite a bit: https://db-electronics.ca/2017/07/05/the-dangers-of-3-3v-flash-in-retro-consoles/ I have Everdrives for nearly all my cart based systems. I have the cheap Chinese multi carts. Am I actually frying my systems slowly, or is this alarmist? I've invested a lot in getting rare and sought after consoles, and modding them to perfection, so it would be a real pain to fry something and then need to replace it.... What is your take? I am certainly alarmed after reading this article. I've never had any problems personally, either with the cheap multi-carts, which work perfectly on my AV modded top loader, or any of my everdrives.
