    I'm sitting down playing the Mother 3 translation. Finally got around to it.
    Using my beat up pink SP, that I carry with me wherever.

    Right now I'm playing Donkey Kong Country 2. Played it on an emulator a long time ago but it doesn't beat playing on the actual hardware.

    I would if I still had mine :( . I actually have a PSP Go motherboard on the way to me now, so I can solder a microSD onto it to replace the M2 slot. One that's done, it'll be my "take everywhere" handheld, since it does a wide variety of native and emulated games and has a great portable form factor. I'd just use my N3DS XL, but it's not so portable :glare:

    Not comfortably. The thing takes up, like, 105% of my pocket. And that's not a typo, 105%. It basically sticks out. It's "portable", certainly, but not in the sense it's easy to just stuff in a pocket and go.

    I'll have to try that game sometime.

    Best of the Best.

    Everdrive envy. Looks good, just waiting to see if he builds a X3 that sits flush with no RTC.

    Love to see battle scars on the Gameboy, shows how much you love it, or your pet. I have some minty SPs, but prefer the well worn look. I picked up the Reaper vinyl skin off ebay quite a few years back. Its on the top cover and back side also.

    Zero Mission for me, still have to play Fusion. A white classic with an AGS-101 sounds awesome. I've see them for sale, but have not bought one yet. Post a pic if you can.

    I was into Fire Red, I have Leaf Green to play and Sapphire.

    What color? I bought an aftermarket case once, it was cheap as hell, and the screws almost came through the bottom half...it looks horrible. It was only $4.00 at the time. Let me know where to pick up a good quality one...then I have the fun of popping out that top hinge piece again.

    Now that looks nice!, did you do the mod yourself? I've seen the adapter wires and screens. I was thinking of just getting the adapter wire since I have some 101 donation screens I can use. May have to show you some horrible attempts at front lighting with the afterburner kits from back in the day...they were a pain.

    Yup, homemade! I had a badly damaged 101 SP, with a good screen, so I ordered a 32 pin ribbon cable (it was the model for my GBA) and clipped it to the new screen. Just had to snip a bit of plastic in the case to make it fit, and voilà! Works wonderfully.
