    you have my list of systems, though add colecovision and atari 5600 to though. hope everything is still going okay. when do you think that mine will be ready, i have a list of things that all need to be bought immideatly and sadly i have limited cash resources. i have to pick and choose how i buy things. if the box is ready soon i will go ahead and give you the $$ for it first.

    Hey Genome, I just got word that the chips are as follows..

    vintage col - sega 3 button

    sega set all sega pads

    Nintendo set a nes snes

    gc/n64 set

    Each is going to cost about 15, so I need at lease 3 to get all of those. So far no chip for dream cast or 15 pin Atari. Its a good thing I can make my own connectors though....

    Original estimated cost.. $300

    Wishful estimated cost.. $25

    current estimates cost.. $50


    I still hope to get it down a bit.. and I would like the get the 25 pin Atari working. I'm not sure if the 5600 used that or not, I dont think so.. So that should be good. I still dont have controllers to test with..

    what I have

    n64
    psx
    xbox
    snes
    nes
    atari


    what I need

    any wireless
    turbo G16 duo and regular
    sega all kinds.
    dream cast
    game cube
    col. int. jaguar and any vintage stuff..

    thats great news, i assume it will still be a little bit. sorry i cant give you more info on how the specific controllers work. i dont own most of them myself either.

    you could always try wikipedia,i have no idea if it would have the info you need but it does have very specific hardware specs for the consoles themselves.

    50 bucks sounds great. is that total cost or just materials cost?

    the ones i need most are:

    atari 2600
    colecovision
    atari 5200
    nes
    snes
    sega saturn
    turbo graphix 16
    3d0
    neo geo
    n64
    psx
    dc (if it can be done of course)

    i understand that all probably wont be possible but these are just my list

    so what parts do you have left you need to get?
    did you already get the molding kit??

    can you give me an estimate on when it will be done

    im so exstatic about this
    cant wait to hear back from you.

    this weekend i sort out gamex, an operating system, hard drives, and my mobo/cpu

    hope your weekend is just as progressive

    Hey guys, can we keep the cash talk in PM if you're gonna be exchanging goods for services?

    I don't think we have any real provisions or rules to deal with this either way, but it's been a custom of many forums to either have strict rules about this, or not allow it in public at all.

    Thanks for understanding. If the situation changes I'll let you know.

    Ya wiki always helps..



    atari 2600 --Got it..
    colecovision --90% sure I got it
    atari 5200 -- ify but not impossible
    nes -- got it
    snes -- got it
    sega saturn --got it
    turbo graphix 16 -- not sure yet
    3d0 -- same
    neo geo -- could be fun.. Get me a joy stick and ill try...
    n64 -- got it.
    psx -- got it
    dc -- got it..

    still working out costs for some of those..

    the mould/molding is good to go, 100% success. check out the new site (link at bottom)

    est on completion is very tentative, but I would guess 1-2 months I hope by xmas for sure. The more controllers I get the faster ill get it done. I only have so much r&d costs...

    Good luck on gamex!!


    ok To Genome and others.. The casting was 100% success.. and the site is up..

    sorry zach my fault

    AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    THIS IS REAL PROGRESS!!!! i think i pooped a little.
    great to hear back from you ulaoulao. i may have had a setback as far as my savings go
    We had a car wreck over the weekend on the way to buy my 1tb hard drives. we are figuring out if it will be better to go through the insurance company or to pay out of pocket. im hoping the insurance company comes through because if not my entire projects savings are going out the window its okay as far as the joypad box goes though, i will make sure to have the money needed for it. the rest of my project may be in limbo for a while though. hopefully everything will smooth out.

    let you know as more develops. i would send you any controllers i had if it would help but right now i cant afford to go buy anymore. if you just need the information though, i can research it and send you that. if you need the hardware im afraid i cant help there though.

    let me know how things go
