I left the mount holes and 72pin connector on there along with a little silk screen.

Designspark PCB file with board outline and mounting holes: https://www.dropbox.com/s/vzyb5uzwhgwuf ... e.pcb?dl=0

Here's my current Designspark NES library might be needed for 72pin connector. I save every component I've ever created in this library so if you're making boards it could be of great use if you can make sense of my naming convention... https://www.dropbox.com/s/oovscu6aqvln0 ... S.zip?dl=0

Designspark is completely free and I recommend it: http://www.designspark.com/eng/page/des ... -home-page

Enjoy!

[EDIT: links updated as dropbox changed their link paths. Post below actually uploads them with my more recent versions as forum now allows it.]

Would you be willing to share these files again, please? :|

Ahh yeah dropbox changed their link paths awhile back breaking all links to my public folder.. I updated the links to that old post, but here are my more up to date versions attached to the forum.

I've since updated my PCB outline to include some slanted angles/corners to make up for the imperfections of my NES case mold. The attached v2 outline is designed to fit well in all original, and reproduced NES case molds I've found to date.
