Mega Drive Recalbox



  • Hello et Bonsoir,

    Today I've finished my Mega Drive Recalbox and I love the result. Instead of having a boring case I have a childhood dream right next to my TV 🙂

    This is my first case mod, so after I've finished I would have done some things slightly different, but anyhow, I am pretty pleased with the result.

    • Using a RP3
    • All RP3 ports except AUX are connected (I might do AUX later, but I don't see the reason yet)
    • Mega Drive Power Switch is working
    • Mausberry power circuit for the power switch (you can see it slightly on the picture, it's below the RP3
    • Red Mega Drive LED is working
    • Reset button is not connected as I couldn't figure out how the original button worked.

    Here is how it looks like. The Sonic cartridge in the slot is just for the look. I plan to make a V2 with a modded cartridge so I can actually use it to change SD cards.

    Nice one! Are the lights from the tv or you build it separately?



  • They are built seperately. It's another Pi 🙂 Love those beasts

  • Sexy beast



  • you could even use the reset button 🙂

    But it's a very nice and neat project 🙂

    Reminds me i still have to work on hyperion ...



  • I couldn't find out how it works. When I press the reset button which I soldered out of the mega drive board, it doesn't change the voltage on any of the four pins. I think I need to buy another one that I can use instead.



  • this looks so cool, great job. can you make a list of all single components that you used, preferrably with a link to buy online, please? I would like to do this myself but I'm a noob when it Comes to stuff like this. I have a defunct MD so I already have the case at least...
