I don't see it as settled because the reason you don't like my cases are that they bend. My point is any case will bend significantly when sliced in half.My "distaste" for your cases was already settled by the agreement that I send you another shell. I don't know why you bring this up again.
I the discussion was pretty simple from my perspective..
INL: I have cases but they aren't very proper.
DRW: Can you cut an original case for me instead?
INL: No, cutting original cases it's against my religion.
DRW: It's just that your cases are too bendy, what about if I sent you a non-original case instead?
INL: Sure, cutting another manufactures (non-original) case isn't against my religion. I reluctantly accept provided the timing is convenient for me (next summer). I still don't think you'll like it because it will bend a lot due to lack of structural strength.
DRW: So, are you telling me that you won't be able to create a proper device until summer?
INL: Regardless of when I cut it any sawed case will be bendy, which is what you don't like. I still have no confidence I can create you a proper case.
DRW: I thought we settled the bendy issue, why are you bringing it up.
INL: (this post)
I doubt it, but you're free to try I guess..?DRW wrote:Would it be possible to buy some cheap converter from eBay and you put yours into its casing?
I have items on hand to solve this today, I just haven't taken the time to do it. Part of my delay on the converter is I'm still waiting on my expansion port audio boards which I would like to release at the same time.The actual issue is that you later said you won't be able to use your good saw for a few more months and that you're not sure how you will implement a strap for pulling the converter out of the console.
This is a completely separate issue that needs to be cleared first and it has nothing to do with which shell you use, does it?
I thought offering you early access to one of my products might be helpful. I no longer feel like me providing you early access to my product will be a pleasurable experience for you. It won't be early access anyway since I can't saw your case to the best of my ability for several more months. Sorry if I lead you on, I don't think I can help you very much.
If you want a good CIC, and proper case, I still recommend stoneagegamer's converters. I'm pretty sure they have a good CIC solution. I'm fairly certain they don't support 4screen mirroring, but it's unlikely you have famicom carts which would be affected. I'm also fairly certain they don't properly mix expansion audio, nor send audio to EXP6 pin to support the resistor audio mod. These things could all be confirmed by with an image of the PCB top/bottom.
I'm hoping to release everything on my site by January. If you'd like to reach out to me in June have me saw your case in half that's fine. I don't like saying this, but offer any guarantee of satisfaction, and it would be completely at your risk. Me cutting your case would have to be seen as a favor between friends, not a business transaction. Possible I could accidentally completely destroy your one case while attempting to cut it, that's a risk you would have to accept.
