Been doing some rethinking, and I have decided that the FBII is just too small to laptop mod. It would end up being very awkward to use. So... Handheld mod it is. Yes I know the thing will be incredibly large, but I think I can pull it off. A 7" handheld would be pretty epic imo. The whole thing will be about 10"x5.5". It will most likely be relatively thin, except for a massive lump where the cartridge goes. I am most likely going to use six 2000mAh rechargeable AA batteries to power it, since both the dvd player and the FBII use 9v.
The unfortunate side of this will be that it will lose most of the feel of the original atari. I was hoping to somehow integrate the original joystick into the laptop, but sadly that seems impossible with the new design. Instead, I am going to have to go with a more standard d-pad.
I am currently in the process of getting the dvd player fully taken apart. Pics to come soon.
The DVD player:
The necessary components, displaying my FBI.
The extra parts:
This is about as far as I can go without the FBII. Gonna order it as soon as I get some money in my paypal, then the fun part begins.
BTW, I encourage comments, criticism, etc.
