All the parts have come in to build these now. I'll start this weekend. They'll trickle out a few at a time. Thanks for your patience!

OK, here's the first unit. USPS found the housing package and redelivered. However Mouser sent my microcontroller board order out of country so there will be another few days delay in getting orders out for this. Despite the delivery issues, things came out really well especially with a red and black Anker USB cable.

The adapter shows up as a gamepad within Windows. There are 3 different mappings. By default all VB controller buttons get mapped to digital buttons as the VB controller is 14 digital buttons. I added two other mappings which can be selected by holding the A or B button when the adapter is powered up. Holding the A button down during power up maps the left d-pad to analog X,Y and everything else digital. Holding the B button down during power up maps the left d-pad to analog X,Y and the right d-pad to analog rotation with everything else to digital buttons.

The housing came out nice. There are some very small ridges that appear on the outside due to internal features that I wasn't expecting but still looks clean. Really happy with how things turned out for a first pass at this housing.

I'm not providing the red/black Anker cable so here's a link if you're looking for one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00S ... age_o06_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

So that completes it for this project. I'll be shipping out units for this in about a week after those microcontroller boards show up. This has motivated me to do an update to my Power Glove adapter too. :-)

Wow, that's pretty bad. This is the first one I've ever had them lose.

Some delay here on builds. USPS lost the package and the housings are being remade.

Formlabs announced new color kits today. Red is one of them. Anyone got a Formlabs 2 printer?


Also got the updated print from Formlabs in the translucent blue. No more warp or so much flexibility because they cured it correctly. If the tough resin could be died red it would be pretty awesome. Some risk it would be slightly purple because of dying a blue part red. I don't have any experience with dying resin to know for sure.

I've started the firmware on the programmer. In test phase now and adding features as I go. Looking like end of January given other builds in the queue. 16Mbit cart supported first and then I'll add the 128/256 cart support.

Super sweet! Looks pretty official.


Thanks. Parts are being made now. 5 sets on their way by end of the week. It only took about a day to design so not too bad. I'll update again when I have assembled units.
