8Bitdo SFC30 Gamepad optimized

Dienstag, Juni 30th, 2015

Recently I got some Pads from

If you want to buy some Look here

Great bluetooth Pads working on tablets, iphone, ipad, android phone/tablets, Windows, MAC, Nintendo Wii, Retrocon…

The SFC30 is looking like a SNES Controller and reached it around 80-90%. But I want it 100%

So I put the PCB of a SFC30 into a original SNES Controller. You need only some drilling and its a fast job.

Look here for some pictures during the process

Wii Harddisc Case

Donnerstag, Juli 28th, 2011

I am in search for a nice Harddisc Case in white, but I didn’t find any nice looking case…

After this I decided to put a 3,5Zoll Sata Harddisc into a broken Wii.
I am planing to use the original Power Supply and the original USB Connectors.
wii_hd_case_final (Custom)

I opened the wii and removed all until you only have the main PCB inside

I removed to parts (red marked) to disable the USB Wires into the mainboard and connected the USB Cables from the USB/Sata Connector to the onbaord USB Port

wii_hd_case_usb_wires (Custom)

The power is taken from the Top Site of the mainbaord. Here I have to remove the original Fuse (red marked) to avoid getting any voltage to the mainboard.

You can get 12V to power up harddisc from the right site of the fuse.

GND is found at the edge of the mainboard.

I placed a standard 7805 voltage regulator to get the 5V for the Harddisc

wii_hd_case_fuse_remove (Custom)

Here you can see original case of the used USB/Sata Connector

wii_hd_case_USB_Adapter (Custom)

all together

wii_hd_case_complete (Custom)

I extended the power Led of the USB/Sata Adapter to the original power LED of the wii

And here you can see the final backsite with connectors

Volume Control for WPC 95 Pins

Freitag, Juni 24th, 2011

For changing the Volume of a pinball you always have to open the coindoor.
And mostly you have the key in the coindoor.
I find a solution to move the switches outsite of the coindoor.
So you can remove the key and it looks better.
I connected the volume + and volume – parallel to the switches inside of the coindoor.
But they don’t work without opening the door.
So I have to put a “coin-open” switch outsite too. Its the green one.
To change the volume you have to press the green once and then you can change the volume via the two red and black switches as usual.

Here the first pics





you have only to replace the original red plastic with two screws



remove the lamp


put in the new one with the wires


connect the three crocodiles to the inside switches


here you can see the replaced coindoor plastic with the new one


Treasure Chest LED Mod for Tales of the Arabian Night

Freitag, Juni 24th, 2011

Here you can see my little treasure Project. It will be realized in a pin like Tales of Arabian Night.

I have put some RGB changing Leds into the chest and some holes into the treasure area.

And I have put some glasfibre into the holes to make the effect more viewable…

Look here some pics and a video






Magic Rabbit Set for Theatre of Magic Pinball

Sonntag, Februar 20th, 2011

After the candlelight mod for the Magic Trunk it seems to insert some new pets into Theatre of Magic Pinball. As there a many rabbits on the playfield I decide to take two and make replaces the eyes with 3mm power Leds in red, because there are dangerous rabbits on the playfield.
This time it was tricky to make the holes for it because this rabbit is tiny around 5cm long.

I done the holes like a Y 3mm for the eyes and from the back to the head around 3-5mm

It works good if you use a 1,5mm at the eyes to get a fix for the bigger hole


eyes replaced


final position of the leds


first dangerous look






So up some plastics to connect the Rabbits to the slingshots.

For this I have used clear plastics and put them over the originals to prevent damage and to make the mod removeable without a trace
