    This is my first "portable" gamecube, i had easter money so i figured i'd use it, still a work in progress, currently working on adding the bult-in controller and a handle to better the grip, it is fully functional but the gamecube itself still needs to be plugged in , will add a battery when i get some money,Got money, got battery It has a disk drive(duh) too bulky with disk drive .wiikey, it is fully fuctional and i added a cage around it i. Fully functional adding case , controller handles for griping and holding the cage looked like crap.

    Pretty cool actually. One thing to keep in mind: You'll need to make the disc drive shockproof. That way, if you're mashing the A button in Melee, the disc won't jump and give a read error and prevent you from beating the game.

    That's actually pretty nice, not too polished but seems functional nonetheless.
    Having fixed a few consoles in my day I can't imagine doing a portable mod(specially not the GameCube, that disk drive seems like it would be a bitch to deal with)

    Hey thanks everyone, thought i would get bashed lol ... Well i added a handle which realy helps alot, im gonna add the buttons to the handle (A,B,X,Y) then the analog stick will be on the other side of it.As for batteries IDk whats going on . Other people can run them with 2 3.7v 2400mah cells, i have those because they came from the screen i bought. The battery life would be questionable but the problem is i have a rev c mobo , which for others is great , for me its annoying because it wont work with these batteries. If anyone has any thoughts / tips for battieries i could use em

    This is sweet, tom. Give it a lot of practice, and maybe I'll pay for a commission from you. ^.^

    I love the portable console scene. everything is so incredible, regardless how "bad" it is.

    Thanks, i figure i have time to get better, anyways heres an update. I JUST finished the controller mod now, i went through 3 controllers and now i am using a nintendo controller because the micro stopped working.And in the process i broke the only "nice" piece of the system, the acrylic . I cut a third piece after i broke the first two drilling holes so i didn't bother filing the corners down. I guess next i will be working on a clear plexiglass case because the white acrylic was expensive.
