    I have a copy of wario ware: twisted. It has a built in rumble pak and a gyro sensor.


    Has anyone tried making a rumble pak out of it?

    If your the one asking, no. It is unlikely you would have the skills to do a hardware hack on a flashcart.

    You can do one by yourself of course, but keep in mind that you have to have at least minimal knowledge of electronics.

    You can check at Instructables where it tells you to do it with a micro-controller (a programmable device), and the user explains another way but he just mentions it.

    The second way would be better since it involves zero programming and only soldering, still you need knowledge to at least read the datasheets of the electronic parts.

    Buy a $2 rumble pack from DX and pull that one apart instead -- why break your wario ware twisted?
