    If you're going to put it on something, put it on the YM2610. Those things generate some good heat sometimes.

    This guy came up with a unique and clean way of adding a Nintendo multiout to an original Famicom: http://bakutendo.blog87.fc2.com/blog-entry-272.html

    Too bad the wiring is a little messy though, but I guess you can't avoid that when adding an NESRGB to the Fami.

    He got some of the circuits for the old RGB NES mod material from Baku and claimed it as his own. That big wad of glue in the AV Famicom I posted is the Baku Top Gun PPU circuit.

    For those who remember the Genesis I got that was fucked up by RetroRepairTips, here's what it looks like now:

    The cheapest place to get the is probably the Chinese sellers on eBay unfortunately. You can get 100 connectors for a few bucks. Search for Dupont on eBay. You need to buy the connector housings, the pins, and a crimper if you don't have one. You can just use standard pin headers with them.

    The dupont connectors are a very good idea. I've been annoyed with a couple of my mega drive mods that now tie the two case parts together - might need to pinch this setup.

    Welp, I'm pleased to say there's a happy ending to the worst modded Genesis ever! I got everything all finished tonight and here are some pics of the top half, followed by a pic of the system in action. I did have to resort to using hot glue for mounting the blue LED, but I used a high temp gun so it's not crappy and stringy. I was going to take a few more pics but then my camera ran dry.

    White PC Engine RGB mod.




    ApolloBoy is probably familiar with that amp design.

    The THS7314 is a great little chip, how do you like it compared to the transistor-based amp?

    I like it however the video is a little too bright. The outputting 75 ohm resistors might need to be raised.

    Still experimenting.

    I finished my N64 RGB mod today. Another mod without any glue. I used neoprene padding and double sided sticky tape to secure the amp to the N64 PCB. I took a bunch of other pictures as I did the mod and will try to compile it into a short tutorial for the tech section sometime this week.
