I just finished installing and testing a Brook Nincade adapter on a SNES Classic with a Wii-mote and it works as expected out of the box. https://imghost.io/image/GIbeC
The NINCADE lets you use a Switch controller/PS4/8Bitdo(iCade mode)/iCade/Wii remote/Wii U Pro Wireless Gamepads and more to play wirelessly on your NES Classic Edition, Nintendo Classic Mini Family Computer as well as the SNES Classic Edition and Super Famicon.
2 Units (Player 1 & 2) + Free Installation is $120
I was initially worried when images began leaking online of the SNES Classic’s mainboard because the UART connection found in the NES Classic design was missing in the images. Still I remained hopeful that it was just moved to the backside, and that was indeed the case. I’ve just completed my UART mod on my SNES console for some kernel debugging.
I’ll be spending a lot of time on this, and that’s just what I’ve been doing since I picked the unit up in store today.
As mentioned previously on twitter after months of hiding in a box in storage I finally found the time to complete my NesPi Project (NES + Raspberry Pi).
When I first learned about the Raspberry Pi I immediately placed a preorder and began planing all sorts of projects. The Pi took 4 months to ship from my preorder date so I had plenty of time for planing and preparation.
Having plenty of experience modding systems before, including a NES portable, My first thought for the Pi was emulation. Although more towards MAME and replacing my Xbox as a media center.
There are already users who’ve shared similar projects, however this project was my own idea without outside inspiration. “Great minds think alike”.
It also won’t be my last project involving a Pi 😉
I really wanted to keep the NES in its original condition without cutting new holes and sacrificing the cartridge slot and the ability to insert a game and push it down. In case you don’t already know, I have OCD, so it had to be perfect.
And It’s my OCD right now that’s been keeping me from sharing pictures with you because I want everything at least look presentable. It’s for this reason that I will be delaying the photos until I can make the unit somewhat more presentable in its appearance.
For now just think what an original NES looks like and how it works. That’s pretty much what I’ve done. I even use the NES power supply 🙂
Photoshop CS5 just isn’t the tool for this task as you can see. The amount of detail in such a small area (Bitizens are about 14x17pixels) just seems impossible.
I’ve had him looking much better without the size reduction, but then I don’t get the “I’m gonna wreck-it it!” chat bubble, and it’s just not the same. So I’ll continue to work on perfecting him. I’m also working on some of the Bitizens, and the floors themselves amongst other things.
