Quote from: Tsurugi_Takuma on March 17, 2015, 05:13:47 amThis is exciting, real happy that my lot is already in the mail. Hopefully I'll get a chance to install at least 1 of them before I'll have to start getting ready to move to the house I just bought
Quote from: micro on March 17, 2015, 09:11:37 amHaha, shouldn't you be doing some DIY stuff in your new home then instead of playing around with your N64? Just kidding...
Quote from: themartonfi on March 17, 2015, 12:08:00 pmHey I was really interested in getting one of the converter PCBs from you. When I click the email link it doesn't do anything. I was wondering if I could contact you another way?
Quote from: Andy-Antsinpants on March 17, 2015, 07:40:03 pmI've got four v2 kits yet. Micro, you once mentioned there'll be a patch available to upgrade the v2 PCBs to the v3's firmware. Could you please give us more information about when the patch will be released and how it will be applied? Many thanks for your good work.

I updated the page every day until I got connection problems because of my ISP (problems started on the 12th), and today it got fixed. Oh well, I haven't been able to play my N64 for 10+ years, so I guess I can wait a few more years.

Quote from: micro on March 22, 2015, 03:58:53 amAaaargh, why didn't you just give me your address? I told you that I wanted to give you a free PCB set...
Quote from: micro on March 22, 2015, 03:58:53 amYes, I have to admit that this batch was gone quite fast. Originally I wanted this to be my last batch but I realize that there's still demand for the PCB's. So I will make another one I will accept pre-orders until 4th April 2015; see first post for more informations.

Quote from: Majoras Mask on March 25, 2015, 05:03:17 am well figured it out thankfully, it was of course poor soldering.. thanks for your quick support micro!Edit: well i know it's the bad soldering now. i have gotten it to work and then after i screwed everything together to play, it was screwed up again.. i guess what i need to do is remove everything and try to do a better solder job.
Quote from: MockyLock on March 26, 2015, 05:22:13 amI've installed one in a controller and tested it with GoldenEye. Working like a charm. Glad i could help you to spot this so you could fix it. Really happy with my new N64 controller
Quote from: Syx7h on March 26, 2015, 12:42:27 pmI'm definitely going to be placing an order, but I need some help on figuring out where to get the stick and shell at.If I'm not mistaken the GC Type stick and N64 Type shell is all you really need right? Those GC style sticks on ebay are expensive. Is that what people are doing? Paying 11-12 dollars each for these off of ebay and then gutting the inner board and pot. for Micros design?I'll buy from these people off of ebay, but if anybody has an alternative or different site to buy from I'd really appreciate the info.Thanks a lot guys and thanks Micro. You've done a great job. If this is going to be the possible "last batch" what happens to this project? Where do we get the boards and pots from if your not going to supply them anymore? It would be upsetting if this has to die.
QuoteSo is the only place I can buy these GC Sticks is on ebay?
QuoteAlso, do I apply the 2-3 dollar shipping for every single pcb/pot set? 2 pots/pcb = double the shipping? Is that right?
Quote from: matticus on April 03, 2015, 06:04:03 pmI picked up a small error in the PCB, the L and Z pads are inverted on each side of the board. Doesn't really matter but I thought you should know.
Quote from: matticus on April 03, 2015, 06:04:03 pmThe other thing is 3 out of 4 controllers are working great, however I have a strange problem with one of them. The controller calibrates fine but when I set it to extended range mode the cursor erratically dips when I rotate the joystick in certain angles. Could this be a problem with the potentiometer? I'm pretty good at soldering so I don't think it's a connection problem but if you can't think of what could be wrong I'll open up the control pad and look again.
