ok good because i was like i am hopeing he doesnt need that second one
you asked earlier how to plug to psx adapter internally just soder the wires to the usb header
ok so i dont need anything fancy? i just gotta match the right colored wires with everything?
any ideas about this
o and i just tried the headphone thing again using the headphones i use at lan parties (its a 3.5mm jack so i use a converter) and with the converter in it just barely blocks the 2nd usb port, so ya i cant use it, but i NEVER used 2 front ports at the same time, and i only use the headphones at LANS and i never plug anything into the front usb anyways
for the holes try bondo
and for the usb just match the wires to the correct header
Ya i need to get some bondo though, does walmart have it? how much is it at home depot and stuff?
walmart might im not sure but HD probaly will and im not sure on price
walmart carries bondo, and if you go to ratshack they used to carry a adapter to go from 3/8th to 1/4 with about 2" of wire so you can get that and still use your second usb
cool ill check walmart next time i go
i may do a lil sliding door thing,made out of a cd jewel case
dang i still need a window design
any ideas how i can cover up some of the ps1 controller port hole?
Looking good so far, will keep an eye on this to see how things progress for you.
Go to ask though, just out of curiousity, did you happen to get this case from Tiger Direct? I just picked up two of these same cases (in black mind you) from Tiger, and managed to get them for $40.00CDN apiece.
ya i got it when it was on sale (and when they had the case) for 30 bucks
for the hole, if bond-o isnt good for you, then try filing it!!!
Also if you file around the usb ports,it will look much cleaner
Other than that, what colors are you going for?
Another thought, get a peice of heatshrink tubing to cover the end of the green wire sleeving on the usb extension ports, it will look cleaner, unless you have something else in mind
filing will make the hole bigger
Ok well i made my ghetto psx adapter cover thing, held on by a cable tie, and made of a mouse pad and some carpet LOL
I painted it silver, but i havent got any pics of it yet
anyways, made a hole for the heatsink, so ill put a fan on the other side panel
And i cut my front bezel up WOOT!
i went all over it was fun, but it took me about 4 hours to cut it all out
If your wondering why i left those things, youll see
hmmmmmmmmmm why did i cut out the bezel crap again? o ya!!
thats my pimping walmart grill mesh crap WOOT! and if you havent noticed, i left those things to mount the lcd.
Tomorow im gonna paint the grill blue woohoO! i MAY also do my window, if i can think of something to do that is
thatz all for now
looks real funkeh with lcd installed good stuff
that cover is really..."ghetto"
ya it was the only/easiest thing i could think of
Painted the mesh
and made a new cover, using velcro
hmm imo that cover for the hole you made looks kind of dorky imo. i would bondo it and then remount the port somewhere else. but this is just my opinion
well theres no other place to mount, i would bondo it but i dont have any, if i find some ill buy some
