    So after making my NES controller some of my friends asked if I could make a SNES controller with on board storage as well, and I replied "Challenge accepted!" so here are some pictures of the controller

    I used the same converter chip and USB hub as the NES controller and used a 2GB Mushkin USB drive.

    I loaded SNES9X and NEStopia along with every NTSC game (includeing Star Fox 2 [​IMG]) and still have over 1GB free

    After putting the controller together the Start button was giving me some crap so I scrapped it with the exacto knife and it is good as new
