gamecube modding

Post by Disheveled DrFreeze » Mon Apr 05, 2004 12:57 pm

well heres the deal, i just found a local toy store selling s shipment of refurbished gamecubes, prices:
gamecube with con: ? 35
cube with con and zelda/metroid ? 65
cube with gb player ? 75

i will pick one up for my lil bro, and i was thinking about getting another one to mod and fuck with, does anyone have a good idea for cube modding, mikeys site says he has some big plans for his cube

my ideas so far:
- put a nano-itx board in there
- add a huge amount of leds

so anyone has any better ideas?

You could easily make a car adapter for it since it runs off of 12V.

I highly doubt nano or even pico ITX boards would fit in there.

nano-itx is 12*12 cms, a gamecube base measures 15*16 cms, you do the math
