Random mod idea

Post by Pegleg Jimmy » Thu Jun 07, 2007 3:44 am

Lol its 4:33 a.m. and i have insomnia, and i just came up with the most random idea, that i'm gonna do once i get spare cash for a ps2 case.

I'm gonna mod a dreamcast to fit in a ps2 case, with the disk drive working.

Anyone like my idea? wouldn't be that hard, and all i would really need to do, mod the controller port area to fit a dreamcast port.

Well as soon as i get cash for another spare dc, and a broken ps2 off ebay i'll do it and keep you guys posted :D

Sorry if anythings spelled wrong, i'm kinda sleepy i'll spell check tomorrow.

I'm not thinking clearly so i'm probably forgetting something, like the thing won't work with a disk drawer.

The disc draw will be extremely difficult to get working properly, you've got the electronics of the mechanism to deal with too remember

Ya it will probably be hard, and probably stupid and a waste of time, but i wanna mess with my friends, they think dreamcasts suck balls :O so I want to make this and they will think its a ps2, then i will show them it was a dreamcast :D, of course i would have a ps2 controller on it with a cheap plugin from ebay :P

I MUST MAKE THEM <3 DC!

I'm working on a putting a gameboy advanced into a calculator body,which is pretty easy, just shell it out, and my nephew can then use it at school :D What a lucky 11 year old huh? I help him play games in class :D

You will NEVER get the drive tray ejection and loading to work. EVER. 100% guaranteed.

I like the idea, but why put it in a ps2? it would be much easier to put it in something square like maybe a saturn case or even a gamecube. What I'd really like to see is a PC in a DC box. Now THAT would rock.
