    If interested, a small update to my consolized Game Gear. I shortened and cleaned up all the internal wires, organized the setup and secured everything before working on the top case. I have most of the back panel done, but still working and trimming the edges. My GG box is using Tim Worthington's board and I have that wired to a Genesis 2 multi-out for the video (composite and RGB) and stereo sound. As you saw before, I removed the battery components from the GG power board and removed the input jack so I could mount that to my back panel along with the multi-out. I have LED's planned, but I have to pick up a couple more mini ones because I burnt out because I had them in series, but forgot the resistor getting lost before I cleaned up and shortened all the wires going all over the place. I'll pick up more from Console 5 since the local store is a rip for those. Attachment 14817

    That looks really slick!

    Damn, I just saw my previous post and realized my GG still doesn't work.

    Thanks Melf. That was from a completely destroyed GG that I got for $14. It had bad caps on the sound and power boards, but the coil inductor on it's power board was also bad - so I had to replace that as well. After getting it back to life, that's when all the crazy work began with cutting and modifying an old Net Gear router I got from Goodwill for another $2. Your Game Gear would probably work too if you replaced the caps everywhere. A lot of time that helps with the screen issue also - although I'm sure you likely know that. I have some extra Game Gear parts that I could give you (like a repaired sound or power board), but I don't have a screen because it's a one way trip pulling it off. If your screen has backlight issues, have you considered an LED backlight mod? It's cheaper than the way more expensive (but far superior) McWill screen and you get better battery life.

    Man, I'll need one of these too in addition to a Nomad screen.

    That looks really nice, is that an old cable modem for the box?

    Close. It's an old Net Gear wifi router I gutted and modified.

    I can confirm that the Mega SG is a great solution for GG games on the tube. Can't wait for the official adapter.

    I'd love to but all these solutions seem expensive. I have still yet to buy a 3rd party newer console or adapter for older games. I know I should given the age of my systems.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?

    Yeah, there's not exactly a cheap option. A Retron 5 with adapter is going to set you back almost as much as a Mega SG, and won't be as pretty or accurate. A consolized Game Gear is pricey and they aren't made at regular intervals so you have to pounce. Even VGA mods are going to kill your wallet.
