Here's a pic of the kit (coloured squares indicating which wire to solder)

Although, I'm thinking of supplying fully built cables instead.

Not for money, but for donor carts (which I'm always needing).

now that we can build link cable, how far are we from building a rgb output device thru the link cable port? :D

too bad I already ordered the more expensive cables, but hopefully they'll atleast be built well etc :) your price is insanely better.

Not sure, what do you think is a fair deal - 2 donors ?

I'd gladly offer 2 donors for a cable!

That looks like (an old version of) Hedgetrimmer's link plug model (that he and I collaborated on). Is he okay with you selling them? It'd be nice to at least give him credit for the design.

We switched to a 3 piece design (with a solid nose and two rear shells) since the 2 piece version had a tendency to pop apart from the outward pressure at the nose, so gluing the halves together would probably be a good idea.

Correct.

I've done a few alterations to it. Made the snap-fit and cable grip much tighter. I also increased the depth on the PCB area a little bit.

I've plugged one in and out of the port about 100 times, it's very solid.

I'm waiting for his PM (he's not been on the site for a couple of weeks).

the pics look great. ive been soldering for years, and can say this looks pretty easy. I definitely want one of these DIY kits when theyre ready.

I agree. I'd love to buy a kit as well.

We are really, really far from that if you want my opinion.No game have been designed to export video data throught the ext. port. The only viable way is to hack the VB to pick all data througth a FPGA board that will convert the signal:
