Mini NES Classic Updates

  1. Thanks for the explanation video. I would be interested in the design files and/or a build guide to make my own. It would be a great way to help me learn what you have learned during the project.

  2. I would be extremely interested in a build kit. I do not own nor do I have access to a 3D printer myself, and would be much more willing to pay to build one of these than pay $60 for Nintendo's. Also a mini SNES would definetly be interesting to see.

  3. Amazing!! Thank you so much! I would love to build my own! Please share the STL files and where you sourced your parts!

  4. This was awesome. On top of what you already have. Is there any where you can make the NES "Fail" 50% of the time? Maybe Ad a micro switch under the cartridge to set/reset the value? Just a thought to maybe get the full NES experience.
    Other then that. I am interested in some design files? or build guide.
    Keep up the good works

  5. Thanks for the update. I am interested in the case stl files!

  6. Is there a BOM (a.k.a. parts list) available?

  7. I'd love to buy a kit from you! At least the plastic case with the spring function for the cartridges since I don't own a 3d printer myself. All the electronics I pretty much have already

  8. What is a approximate cost for building one of these? What about for the kit?

    1. It's hard to say since I already had some parts/had to buy multiples of others etc. Not cheap.

      I'll prepare a full list of the materials, links etc. and post it here as soon as it's ready.

      I'm still developing the kit but I don't know if I'll be able to offer it at a price that many people will be happy with, unfortunately it's expensive to build something custom like this compared with a mass-produced product like Nintendo's NES Classic :(

    2. An alternative would be to release the 3d print files so that people can download them and find someone with a 3d printer so they can make theor own case and cassettes. Other than that I completely loved this write up. Great job!

  9. What filament did you use to print the case?

  10. Just wanted to say that I enjoyed reading your blog on making a miniature NES so much, it inspired me to start my own blog! Not only that, but I am attempting to take on a miniature N64. I find your approach very interesting; I have been able to learn a lot by studying your code. I will be definitely be on the lookout for any other details you share on this project.

    If possible, I'd love to see a bit more of your Arduino wiring. Perhaps a diagram? I've managed to get my own push button setup to turn off the RP3, but supplying power to it to turn it on seems a bit more tricky.

    Anyways, thanks for sharing your project online!

  13. Hey!!

    It is an amazing project. I have a question. How do you execute the game? I mean, I based on your source to do an adaptation according with my nfc board, but I have a problem. I use the Retropie system, when I do subprocess.call("sudo openvt -c 1 -s -f " + emulatorpath + rompath + "&", shell=True) with a correct emaulatorpath and rompath, it does not execute on the main screen; I have to go to the crtl+F1 bash to play. I have tried some options as do the script start as a job, but I did not find a solution. How did you manage this?

    Cheers!!

    1. Hmm, I don't really remember why I did that (or even understand properly what it does).
      It was a bit hacky I think. A better coder or more experienced RetroPie/Linux user could give you a proper answer.

  14. hey daftmike ! amazing stuff here, I bought your kit, can't wait to get it. do you know when approx we will have it delivered ? also, do you have an idea when the stl file for the case will be released ? thanks again for this quality work !!

    1. I don't have a delivery date yet, I'm still waiting to receive the boards, I'll update as soon as I know more.
      The case files will be released later on tonight, check my youtube page for a new video later :)

  17. You are using a RPi 2 in yours, but do you know if it could be done with a RPi3 as well? Looks like all ports are in the same location as on the RPi2? And you'd have the benefit of Bluetooth and wifi..

    1. Yes, the new version will use Raspberry Pi 3.

  18. Awesome! I need to get one too.

  19. Where did you get the cartridge labels

  20. If a bought a electronics kit do I still have to code

    ReplyDelete
  21. I can't wait until my electronics kit arrives!
    Did you use transfer paper to print the logo and the power / reset button fonts? If yes which one? If no, how did you do it?

    1. I used 'toner transfer' I write about it here: http://www.daftmike.com/2016/02/experiments-with-toner-transfer.html

      I've also tried waterslide decal paper and had ok results. I'll try to make a video on both methods as part of the guide series.

  22. This new mini nes classic console model will surely be a big hit! Kids in the 90s can attest how handy this console is as compared to the old model. Even the ones who wants find out how to buy essay online can create a review about this console.

  23. Sure, trust is a high stake. Yet, you should start from some point. I would not say that you can rely on the reference on the website but over here. It is not a commercial project where people sign their opinion tagging the service they judge. You can check there how reliable our pick is.
