Five years is a long time. :lol

That said, GB Tetris is still pretty low on my list of favorite Tetrises.

Tetris DS is still king. Though I really want to try Tetris Effect.

Btw I realized Tetris 99 is just Tetris DS's 16-player online Battle Mode multiplied a few times. :thinking

And honestly I think Tetris DS was still a bit more fun, since the items had more variety and you could concentrate better on your fewer rivals.

While attempting to install a backlight into a DMG , I cracked the screen as I applied too much pressure on it when removing the polarising film behind the display.

Fuck :(

Ome project didnt go that well, the DMG :(

But yesterday I was anxious to continue modding. So I started on the GBA which I reshelled onto a Golden Pikachu Edition GBA.. I made the adjustments to the shell and then inserted the new screen. I screwed the motherboard back on, but one of the screws got messed up and lost the indentations? Either way I continued on since the mobo was already sitting tight on the shell.

Next up was soldering a very tiny wire, to a very tiny leg on the motherboard. Having never soldered anything before, this made me anxious. I watched a few tutorials and tried it myself.



Succes! Aside from a bit of dust that crept in behind the glass screen protector, and not habing positioned the screen perfectly.. but still the result was amazing!

sorry for the horrible pics, it looks way better in real life

Not as impressive as the first one going to the original Gameboy.

Also it might be Youtube compression, but this doesn't look as good as the Game.com port.

Today I put this together with a chinese drop in kit from aliexpress which requires basically zero modification to your gbc shell or any soldering, so if you want to backlight your gbc and have no skills it's a fun way to start modding.





not sure why the fotos are flipped but not gonna bother fixing as im on mobile

Finally took the plunge and backlighted my reshelled Pocket.

Was a bit scary because of removing the film from behind the pocket screen as Id already killed a DMG screen which has the same polarising film

Im pretty happy with the result

So the same design just popped up on Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/Gameboy/comments/cj286z/my_precious_dmgstyle_game_boy_pocket/



Honestly I think I'm in love. This may be my overall favorite console design of all time.

PS4 has sold as much as SNES, N64 and Gamecube combined  :lol

Still hasn't sold as much as the Gameboy, though.

You got a link for this? there's a few of them.

edit: aw crap

"Wow! That sounds awesome! But wait, there's got to be a catch, right?" you may find yourself saying. Well, yes, there is indeed a catch. Like the McWill kit, this kit runs the LCD at 60 FPS despite the GBC running at ~59.7 FPS. This means that every few MS the LCD needs to duplicate a frame to allow the GBC to catch up. This results in some noticeable judder, especially on any games that include smooth, constant movement, much like in any of the Pokemon titles. The McWill mod deals with this by introducing some occasional tearing, this kit straight up drops a frame or two to deal with the framerate mismatch. This framedropping occurs significantly more often on this kit than the tearing on the McWill kit.

Wow that's not it buddy I did not notice any screen tearing in my testing

Buy this one man

https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33040321760.html?spm=a2g0s.9042311.0.0.27424c4dT4DCZj

Get the second option for just the screen kit itself. I dunno why they added the option for a GBC Mobo + mirror? Don't even know what that mirror does. Maybe it's just a lens.

Sold that GBC for 100 euro's btw. Probably lost little bit of money on it but I wasn't gonna use it.

Really cool GB Studio adventure game, playable right in your browser: Soul Void

Basically a walking simulator with horror trappings and more than a little helping of Undertale influence, but it's a solid and enjoyable 1-2 hour experience and has some great spritework (no music tho.)

Extremely excited by GB Studio's spread.
