Ever since I came across Anthony Thomas’ tutorial on making a Game Boy Macro I wanted one. I had a DS Lite that had a broken hinge and a scratch on the top screen. This made it a perfect candidate for the Macro treatment.

Took this beast apart


I used a 1/4 watt resistor instead of a smaller SMD or 1/8 watt cause I can. It actually fits fine and does not hinder the unit from being put back together.


Quick little test and it all seems good. Time to start working on the enclosure.


Whats next to do?

I need to sand and fill a few areas with bondo before I shoot it with some paint. Really looking forward to finishing this project.
