THIS IS WHY I DON'T REGRET THAT I BOUGHT GO-ADVANCE :)

Post by Hiro-Tong »

This is my first hand on retro gaming device and I won't regret any with GO-ADVANCE

First it was fun DIY to mass around with no experience in electronic at all, But this device is make me pound and so fun to mod it!
Even though It might not have best build quality but the fact that you can customize just a bit is good enough! I rather DIY it than just buy Chinese device and just play game

So this is my first Pikachu Go Edition :D hope you guys like it and start mod some more! (Next step for me is might get some nicer buttons, If you guys have any recommendation for more please do let me know)

Cheer!

This looks amazing! How did you do this? I want to make a blue case with a yellow electric bolt and X-Men logo and put Storm/Ororo Munroe on the back.

Looks to be painted inside the case with transparent stickers.

About the buttons, I recall someone claiming that the original buttons from classic handheld consoles should work, but I'm not telling you where I read that, because I don't know. ;)
Most likely somewhere on this forum. Try searching for "button" around here.

Anyway, that's a neat paint job. I imagine it's a spray paint, but that's the reason why clear case is such a great option.

I think you have to cut some tabs but yeah I've read that also I believe.

I don't regret having the OGA, I play it more than I do the OGS. Only thing I don't like is the charging cord, much prefer Type C on the OGS but I would rather have the barrel connector vs micro USB.
