  • Anyone know if you can use GBA replacement buttons in GBA SP models?

    The buttons themselves are at the very least taller. I don't believe they're keyed the same, even if they were, GBA ones in an SP shell would push against the screen; SP ones in a GBA shell likely wouldn't be tall enough.

    Actually, they're different diameter too. GBA = 8.65mm, SP = 7.9mm

    Thank you for explaining that Sicklyboy. I'm planning on customising my current GBA SP 101 into a glow in a dark translucent blue shell with green translucent buttons. Now I'm thinking about that USB C battery mod too. Thank you again :)

    July -> Aug = 1
    Aug -> Sep = 2
    Sep -> Oct = 3
    Oct -> Nov = 4

    Should I buy a switch now for pokemon S&S or wait for the more powerful unit?

    If you're waiting for Pokémon, just wait until launch. Regardless of the rumours, they'll probably have a limited edition console with the game bundled.

    If you are only interested in Sword and Shield, I'd say wait until about a month after they are out. By then, Yuzu might have added support for them making it possible to just emulate them but if it hasn't you can just get one of the many bundles with the games that will be out by then.

    Thank you everyone for their expert opinions!
    It's so tempting with all the sales going on. Then there's the accessories and such. So want to get into Pokemon S&S when it's out. I've been wanting a switch but so far only Xenoblades 2 has me intrigued me since the first. I've watched a few videos on the Pokemon Let's Go and I still don't understand.
    So scary driving through the heavy rain with thunder sounds vibrating the car :(

    I saw on TV once where someone tested lightning on a car multiple times using a big tesla coil, I think it might have been on Top Gear? It's not possible to generate as high voltages as you would get from lightning, but it's the closest thing you can get, since it's not exactly easy to make lightning hit a specific spot. Car survived with no damage.

    In theory the lightning is always going to pass along the outside, since it's the path of least resistance.

    That's because the car frame is grounded while paint is insulator, so as soon as lightning hits, it will literally hit the car and slide along it's surface until it reaches down the ground without anything happening to the car itself and it's also made so it can handle a very high wattage and amperage.
