    I love it mate! There is really no mod on this, nor other sites that can compare to what you have done here!

    I remember the first time i realized what it actually was:D

    Great job!

    Ah, thanks for that. That would make it work for a couple of N64 controllers made from ps3. I actually had the same problem as Quizz, which is why i'd rather not use 360 controllers. Plus the fact that 360 controllers are fussy if you try to fiddle with the board in them.

    Thanks! Much appreciated

    Thanks a lot. It's nice to hear you noticed the cleanliness cause it took some work hide all the screws.

    Thank you very much!

    Thanks p0Pe! Nice words from a true master :thumb:

    Always great to be able to help. I was thinking of using a 360 controller in the beginning aswell but the pc turned out to be to big. I guess you can call the ps3 board fiddle friendly then since i literally took it to the grinder and chopped of quite a big part without any problems. Good luck with your controllers and please send me a link if you decide to post your result somewhere.

    Thanks, im glad you like it since that's my favourite part on the whole build :)
    Hopefully, you wont have too look forward for too long.

    Thanks, it's nice that you think so because those were the main goals :)

    Hehe thanks for approving:thumb:
    Next up is a scratch built Pico-itx project that won't look anything like a PC.

    I hope so :)

    Uhm... maybe not. Okay well.. it will be similar to this one then :)

    Thank you. It's not the standard looking computer so it's nice to hear you thinks it's for the positive :thumb:

    I don't know what kind of stores you use to visit (maybe one of those in the picture :naughty: ), but unfortunely the ones I know don't have this kind of perfectly planned and executed craftmanship items available...

    It's frickin' beautiful :rock: and most definitely incredibly well planned... with a :jawdrop: attention to detail!!!
    Congratulations The_Gnu, I think the mushroom just became my favorite project on bit-tech, maybe execuo with Attila's Cor Leonis :hip:

    Hehe Thank you very much Jnco. Very nice comment :thumb:. However I had to stop and think for a moment because I just realised how weard it sounds to make a PC that looks like a mushroom.. ..I swear, I've never ever seen that shop...:worried:
