Watching the video makes me yearn just to have that software you're running so I can play old games again without digging out all the cart consoles lol
Thank you Throbbi. Those cart consoles are nice to... I actually miss game cartiges. It´s the values of physical interaction maybe. And the good values of poor quantity. Like mp3s, you got too much of it!
Btw, is there any way to get rid of that annoying XP Welcome screen besides running control userpassword2?? that one just gave me another logg in screen. help appreciated!
This might do the trick but having not messed about with stuff like that in XP, I can't really confirm either way.
thanx.. I´ll look into it!
very cool! congratz!
I just wanted to share my latest accessory to the R-Kaid-6 system, the walnut gamepad.
It has the shape of an NES controller, but the button layout is more or less based on the SNES system. I used a cheap USB SNES replica controller for this project.
Walnut and MDF, as usual
This is the cheap PCB I used
The D-pad cutting was very consuming ... had to be precise
Inside after some cutting, adding and drilling
Decoration time. Stencils and stain painting...
Some final soldering. Spiral cable ofcourse
4 pin DIN connection for the R-Kaid-6
Wish I had smaller hands sometimes, those tiny walnut buttons took hours to make
Well, here´s the final product. Hope you´ll like it!
Duuuude…! That's just… wow, I don't know what… just… damn!
Holy moly, perfect walnut gamepad cheesecake, love it quizz. rep
Bet it feels good while gaming.
However, I guess it's a matter of form over function - or, don't you think that those rather sharp corners would disturb or even hurt your hands and fingers during long gaming sessions? I think it would be better if the corners were rounded off.
So sweeeeeeeeeeet. Nice one and perfect woodworking.
Thanks Waynio! I does feel good... Probably needs a little more weight, that´s all. Easy adjustment.
Cheers Nut! It´s form over funktion here, yes... The corners are rounded enough for smaller sessions, but as you say, a 8 hour session may not be the best idea here. But it´s mainly for co up sessions with stupid friends that don´t wanna learn how to use a proper joystick
Me, I only use the sticks!
Love the NES style pad. I like how it's format is in the SNES style though.
Although aren't you worred that the shoulder buttons a little too round therefore making them hard to hit during fierce gameplay. That's why manufacturers normally make them an oval/rectangular shape or a trigger.
That is very cool
It works better than expected, but I understand the concern.
If I've had more time maybe I'd fix that.
Sh!7, how'd i miss this one? Got half way through before i realized it was from last year. But at least it was the OP bumping it with an update!
That just about sums up what I was thinking. Really, really nice.
