I've also heard that its possible to combine the psu's on a megadrive/cd/32x set up, some pics on how to do that is always going to be helpful.

I also see a lot of people asking about repairing blown caps on Game Gears


I would like to second this. Any help in this field would be appreciated!

I'd love to see this as well because then those with no modding experience (me) can find the ones that aren't hard at all and eventually work they're way up.

There are a few specific to certain consoles in the Guides Section. I recently posted a Playstation PAL NTSC conversion guide there.

I'm thinking about building a bartop mvs this summer and a guide on wiring and setup would be amazing. I already have my eye on kits for parts and graphics. :)

A Retro 101 on the Game Boy Color maybe? It even says in the Game Boy 101 that it would warrant its own article.

EDIT: I would also be willing to help write it up BTW.

yeah it says that because when we worked on the GB article, I wanted to make sure GBC would get its own instead of lumping the two together. I'd say a GBC101 article is going to be a reality. :)
