Introduction and site updates


28th January – should have the current commission completed in 1-2 weeks with a fair wind, then assuming the guy who wants the commission for two tabletop systems pays the deposits soon, i’ll be doing his systems when the handheld portable commission is completed.

10th January  – Looks like after the current system i’m doing as a commission I should have an order for two tabletop systems, one N64 and the other SNES. Details have been discussed, once I have the initial deposit paid it will be booked as the next commission; which will mean i’ll not be free to start another commission until probably April or May; however if you are interested in me making you a system after then, please send a message via the “Contact Me” page and i’ll contact you in the order I receive the messages when I am at the stage to take more orders.

6th January – I am currently working on a commission using the last of my old-style textured black finished cases made a couple of years ago, for a guy in the USA for an N64 handheld; after that I am looking to take on commissions for N64 / SNES / NES / TurboGrafx / SMS system using the tabletop casing (which can be used equally as handheld BTW).

Thank you for keeping in touch with this website, appreciated. Site is getting around 100-250 unique visitors a day, which is great.

yt50My YouTube channel has many videos, some not shown here, which might be of interest – please click the logo if you want to have a look. I have re-made the site from scratch, making the guides streamlined, simple and clear. The guides here are mods I have done myself or developed/improved upon.

There is a Q&A section where you can ask questions on modding or give general feedback and i’ll try to reply as best I can, although I anticipate that the majority of questions will have answers in the reference sections.

Unity system update

Unity system – New master controller is finished and fully tested, works great on the console systems completed so far. Decided rather than making similar looking videos of each console add-on I would instead compile them in the final video as a complete presentation; which is likely to happen mid-end 2016. Whilst I know the interest in modding retro video gaming systems is far less than it was, the Unity system I am sure will generate a wave of interest over the net. It will be awesome! Progress on the system is slower now than was, as instead of making new systems I have been playing Unity. I have made a good start on the next system though, GameCube; as the Wii was finished a few weeks back.

UPDATE – (Mid December ’15) : GameCube works on Unity system, just need to cover the casing which is a quick process.



I will continue this between doing commissions.

Best wishes,
