Got any modding questions or feedback to the site? I’ll answer if I can.
I consider these to be the best I have made so far, very happy with how they look. Nicer to use than traditional handheld only systems – this unit can be played tabletop or handheld incidentally.
PAL console * 5″ widescreen LCD * Runs off two standard camcorder Sony NP-F550 lithium batteries (not included, see below) which are interchangeable in system so no downtime when voltage runs low (or external power if you have a spare transformer rated at 7.4v-12v DC at 2 amps or more) * Low LED voltage circuit * Jumper Pak * Painted in two colours
System price for above £375 plus delivery (see below)
Options – please add the below to order as required (price includes installing the parts too):
Expansion Pak instead of Jumper Pack (see here for details) : £30
Either Rumble Pack or Memory card (a lot of games do not save, depends what you play, also if you have an Everdrive you don’t need a memory card) : £15
NTSC system not PAL (unless buyer supplies; these are expensive to get in UK) : £30
Choose own paint colours rather than stock. Colours will be from standard wall paint colour ranges : £10
Decals (you provide images to put onto casing, i’ll print onto vinyl) : £5
Delivery – £15 UK, tracked and insured delivery. Outside UK is dependent upo
n destination; I will confirm this cost when I prepare the final pricing.
Terms and conditions – Payment in British Pounds only. Terms : £200 in advance plus the cost of the optional extras if applicable (see above) to secure commission. Remainder to be paid when system is completed and prior to dispatch. No refunds on deposits made and commissions are only accepted once deposit is paid.
You will need to buy some Sony NP-F550 or compatible li-ion camcorder batteries and also charger. I would recommend you buy two compatible chargers and either two or four batteries, so when the low voltage LED light illuminates to indicate the batteries are running low you can replace them with charged battery packs if you have four instead of two. Compatible chargers cost around £2.50 each with USA type plug and £5 for UK style from Chinese ebay sellers, and the batteries around £5.50 each. The batteries are rated at 7.2v or 7.4v (either is fine), go for the ones which are 2500mA as two of those working in parallel provide 5 amps which is enough to power your system for around 3 – 3.5 hours depending on the games played. I cannot provide batteries with the system
whatsoever, even a watch battery, due to postal restrictions. If you require the system with a memory card you will need to pop in a 3v flat battery yourself into the system so it can work.
If you wish to proceed, please send me an email on the “Contact me” page detailing your requirements for the system based on above, country and PAL/NTSC preference; i’ll reply to confirm details and final costs so you can proceed to commit.
I can only take on one commission at a time so if there are orders pending I will update so you know when your system is due to start work on.
Guarantee – labour only; buyer needs to pay carriage both ways as well as parts if needed, there is no guarantee provided – “sold as seen” – hence why i’ll make a video demonstrating the system working and tested ful
ly prior to your final payment. A video will be supplied to the buyer before final payment made to show the system completed and working.
Bear in mind these systems are hand made so there will be minor blemishes, not “shop quality” although are made as high quality as I can. As these are not commercial products, the plastic is painted not dyed, so if the system gets scratched the paint is liable to come off in those places – in other words please “use with reasonable care” to maintain the finish.
If there are any Customs or Import taxes on the item when it gets into your country, you will of course be liable for paying those yourself.
Any sensible questions, please feel free to email me via the Contact page.
I have made many systems to date, here are some of the systems I am proud of:
The most comprehensive retro video game console system ever made. Fact.
This is the prequel to Unity, which i’m working on at the moment, which looks and performs better than Project Unity – a true successor.
Project Unity enabled 18 console systems to work from one unit, using original hardware only; one PSU, one SCART, one controller. Awesome. In saying that, it is heavy, cumbersome and ugly – but functional. Ignore the website address in the video, used that domain before this one.
Nintendo N64 portable. The vacuum forming was not easy and the case halves needed much work to close properly but the end result was rather nice. The screen was a PSone 5″ screen and the portable gained a lot of interest at the time on the internet. The connector under the system seemed a good idea at the time however in practice, having the buttons to control volume and brightness should have been on the console, as I did with other systems.
And another N64 portable:
This uses a 7″ widescreen Pillow car reverse screen.
A mini N64 console
Buyer only wanted console to play one game so it was hardwired into the system. Normally, the system would be expected to play all cartridges of course.
TurboGrafx portable. Similar case to above. Decided to sell it if anyone is interested.
GBA with large screen, using SNES clone and GBA adaptor; 8″ screen.

Introduction and site updates
Thank you for keeping in touch with this website, appreciated. Site is getting around 100-250 unique visitors a day, which is great.
My 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.
Flash Cleaning is an established carpet cleaning company in Auckland which has been operating both locally and across the surrounding suburbs for the past 10 years. There are options available for all types of carpet cleaning needs domestic and commercial.
The business began as a home-based operation in 1992 but has expanded to accommodate more clients in the area, most recently when it moved into the former Cottages of Ararat premises. They were able to obtain a number of permits necessary for conducting their business and they have since worked hard to maintain the standards required. The cleanliness and upkeep of the carpets were very good and the business continues to grow. The equipment used in their services includes power washing machines and vacuum cleaners.
Carpet cleaning is a lucrative business and has been steadily growing, thanks to the increased interest in it. The demand for professional cleaning has increased over recent years and the industry is expected to continue expanding and benefiting from the growth and demand. The market for cleaning carpets and other flooring is highly competitive, however, as the competition intensifies, the prices will undoubtedly drop. This means that there will be a higher incentive for potential customers to choose the company over another competing company.
There are different types of cleaning options available, for both domestic and commercial purposes. Some companies offer cleaning solutions specifically designed for commercial use in a variety of environments. Others may only work on domestic carpets and floors but will provide professional cleaning services at affordable rates.
Professional carpet cleaning is essential to the health and appearance of the carpet and floor. It can also prevent serious diseases such as black mold from developing, which can be potentially deadly.
Cleaning services are often required to be performed by businesses that provide a service for domestic cleaning. They usually provide the carpet and floors of a business with a professional carpet cleaning service, often at reduced rates as they have been able to acquire the equipment for low cost.
For residential customers, many cleaning companies will offer a variety of services, which include spot cleaning for your own home, as well as professional carpet and floor cleaning services for industrial and commercial customers. This allows customers to choose a variety of solutions, depending on the type of carpet they require cleaning, and the level of cleaning required.
The main priority for most cleaning businesses is to ensure that they provide the best possible service, as the reputation of the company cannot be affected by a few bad reviews or complaints. A reputable company will always provide customers with a clean and well kept office, safe environment and a clean carpet.
When choosing a carpet cleaning company in Arkley, customers are advised to take their time when searching for one, taking the time to read through their testimonials and customer satisfaction survey. Taking the time to do this will help the customer to make an informed choice when choosing a cleaning company and will ensure they receive the best results for their money.
There is also the option of finding a carpet cleaning company in Arkley via the internet. By making a quick search for the right company online, a large number of companies can be quickly found, all of which are legitimate and provide a variety of solutions. It is important to take time to find a reputable company, however, as not all companies will provide the same quality service, so this method should be considered carefully before signing up.
One of the best ways to do this is to use a carpet cleaning service directory, which will list numerous companies in Arkley in alphabetical order. It is important to compare the websites of the various companies to ensure that they provide a high standard of service. Most directories offer a free quote service, which helps customers to see how much cleaning costs and the services they provide in detail.
The customer will then have the opportunity to read reviews of the different types of companies to find the one that suits their requirements, providing a clean and well maintained office, as well as ensuring that the customers will be provided with a high level of customer service. This is an important part of the process, as it helps to ensure that the customer is happy with the results.
A common question that I hear time and again is how do I quit smoking with hypnotherapy? I’ve been asked a million times, and I usually reply by saying that I know how to quit smoking, you just need to know how. Let’s look at the question a little closer.
You see, when people say how do I quit smoking with hypnotherapy they are trying to solve a problem, the very real problem of becoming a non-smoker. There is no magical potion for this. It is not a one size fits all solution. Hypnotherapy is a very good aid to finding your own way out, but it is not magic.
So in order to answer the question how do I quit smoking with hypnotherapy, we have to be clear about what it is we want to achieve. We want to stop smoking because we think we will die. We want to quit smoking because we feel awful. We want to quit smoking because we want to live a normal life.
As far as hypnotherapy is concerned, we want to know how to quit smoking because we want to be happy. That’s the short answer. The long answer is that we want to become happy. We want to live without being bothered by the feeling of being a non-smoker.
That’s a very good reason to go to see a professional about quitting. It’s really not an easy thing to do on your own. It requires so much energy and time.
However, if you find yourself unable to resist the temptations of the nicotine, then hypnotherapy may help you overcome them. But it is not a cure for smoking. Cigarettes are addictive. If you can identify the triggers that bring on the cravings, you may be able to avoid them. But you can’t change a physical craving into an emotional one. This is why some people decide to simply keep a lighter or some other type of smoking paraphernalia close to them.
Hypnotherapy is an important tool for treating smoking addictions. The therapy is used to identify the causes of an addiction, its triggers and the emotional factors that push people to smoke. These factors are not always obvious to the smokers, and sometimes it takes hypnotherapy to quit smoking to get to the root of the problem.
Hypnotherapy will also help you learn how to deal with withdrawal symptoms after giving up smoking. If you are successful in getting rid of your smoking habit, then you will no doubt be very tired, stressed and irritable. By becoming mentally ready to handle these things, your chances of actually quitting smoking are greatly improved.
And it doesn’t matter whether you were successful or not, or whether you only just decided to try to stop. It’s a good idea to set some time aside in every day to talk to a friend, maybe a spouse, about what happened to you and to deal with the problems you face as a non-smoker. For many smokers it’s an extremely valuable experience.
Hypnotherapy is also a wonderful means of testing your strength to quit. It teaches you how to handle stress and anxiety when the effects of nicotine are most powerful.
Hypnotherapy is also a great way to test yourself, as it is one of the best tests of willpower in the world. People with psychological problems such as smoking addiction should definitely consider this method. In my opinion, the only way to quit smoking successfully is to work with your therapist.
