Is that screen connected to the NES? If so, what screen is that? I've been wanting to get a small screen for my NES but haven't started researching which one to get or how to connect it.

There is an internal voltage regulator board which increases the voltage output to +5v and something like -20v. Nothing runs on the battery voltage alone.

How fast does that drain the batteries?

Honestly the batteries don't seem to drain much faster but my main issue is the noise the kit creates. There's a loud nonstop hum/buzz that actually became annoying enough for me to not even use this anymore. I just use my other MGB with a regular backlight now. Except for recording I use a DMG.

Anyone who ends up with this may want to sterilize the unit and/or wear gloves based on that last picture.

I thought I mentioned they'd include cart cases? Oh well. You're welcome!

Drag'n'Derp carts are gone. Everything else still available.

I use ribbon cable ripped from old computers.

The carts are pending. I've literally had a dozen offers but I have to go in order.

Is what correct?

Ok, now it is correct. For several hours before I left for work, it was NOT a photo of the back side. Kinda wish I did a screen cap for sanity.

Gotcha. That's strange.

Does this count?

Ha! I had a couple dozen original DMG buttons sets and a couple dozen aftermarket DMG button sets sitting around on my work table and my wife grabbed them and did this earring/necklace set combo with them and put them on etsy and they all sold within 2 weeks. She hasn't done more though.

You would risk breaking the pin off the IC; you'd have to do allot of bending to pull just one pin. If you'er dead set on not cutting a trace, I would  de-solder the whole chip and then bend the pin.
With cutting a trace it's a simple job to restore it; the solder mask is very easy to scratch off. I've repaired cracked PCBs, bridging all the broken traces and epoxying the crack on the  board. I had a monitor that lasted 10yrs after I rescued it smile

This is what I was thinking would happen as well but I just didn't get it out right. I bivert DMGs and I just cut the traces. If removing single pins was required I wouldn't bother. I think that would be too much work and too risky. Also recently added some link ports to a few Super Gameboys and I just cut the required traces. I never even considered removing a whole pin. It would probably just break the pin off while trying to remove it.

Wouldn't pulling the pin be just as "irreversible" as cutting the trace? I'd think just cutting the trace would be easier 'cause if you want to revert it back to stock then you just jump a bit of solder across the cut trace.

I'm going on paternity leave soon too! New breed of chip artists are on the rise!

Though they buried a large lot of the games, I thought these were still readily available for cheap? I have a copy and always assumed that anyone with an Atari had one.

Oh, yes, the game itself is very easy to find.  I meant that I would specifically like to have one of the ones that was unearthed at the landfill.

Oh yea gotcha! I wonder how many will include boxes and all that. The article also mentioned of Atari equipment being there as well. I wonder exactly what equipment that was and the condition it was in. They should definitely auction that stuff off.
