Can I strip a screw or what.
Here’s a great hilarious thread on /r/gameboy about it in which I am somewhat overly dramatic.
I ordered the 3dscapture.com original DS USB capture board with the intention of giving it the good old college try as plan A (doesn’t involve soldering! Seemed do-able) and plan B would be packing the whole thing up with my tears and sending it away for a responsible adult to fix for me when I invariably couldn’t do it.
Plan B it is! I couldn’t even get the back off my DS without stripping a screw (the head, not the thread, I think). It’s frustrating because I am very detail oriented and good at fiddly work, but I guess my natural patience for hand sewing doesn’t cross-transfer to turning tiny screws. The video made it look like something I was capable of doing.
Really thought I could do that. :s
Waiting for pay day, then I am going to send it off to a buddy a few towns over who is especially talented at this stuff. In the meantime, my laptop is older than dirt so surely I am going to have to upgrade to a slightly better rig if I would like to capture and/or stream from my DS, so I am trying to figure out how much that’s going to cost so I can start budgeting for it. In the meantime, I should probably just start playing and blogging about my favourite GBA and DS games!
