A Hacker's Guide to the Nintendo 64
« on: December 06, 2012, 08:25:28 PM »
I've decided to write an e-book called "A Hacker's Guide to the Nintendo 64", and provide it as an exclusive reward for Mupen64Plus AE supporters!  It will cover some fun projects of various difficulty levels.  Topics will include controller modifications and adaptation strategies, how to rip ROMs from your game cartridges, programming your own homebrew N64 games, and a couple arduino projects.

This e-book will also document my attempt to create a hybrid OUYA / N64 controller (with a touchpad on top) that appears like a native OUYA controller to the console.  The attempt may not be successful, but either way it should be fun to read about and get ideas from!

If you're interested, please stop by the Kickstarter page and help contribute to the cause!

I've already started on it.  Are you a backer from the Kickstarter campaign?  If not you'll have to wait until (if) one of the backers decides to release it, since I promised them exclusive access.
