With all that done, the finishing touch was a nicely modified and painted case. As you can see from the images, the Game Boy Macro looks great. Thomas decided to start offering them for sale–$130 for a complete unit or $110 if you provide the DS. However, he’s already closed orders due to demand. The DS range of Nintendo handhelds are pretty hard-wearing games-playing devices, but you can find a lot of faulty models available on eBay for a handful of dollars. One of the common faults is the top display no longer working. That makes sense as it’s connected to the rest of the system through the hinged area, which is always prone to wear and breakage.Modder Anthony Thomas realized that faulty DS units were a lot more useful than a case full of parts. With a bit of work, he managed to turn a DS Lite into a giant Game Boy Advance, a new handheld he has named the Game Boy Macro.The Game Boy Macro is basically a DS Lite with the top display removed and the speakers relocated to the back of the lower section of the DS. What you end up with is a unit capable of playing Game Boy games on a large and bright display. Battery life is also going to be great I imagine.The biggest challenge Thomas had to overcome apart from relocating the speakers was tricking the DS Lite hardware into thinking it was still powering the upper display. He solved this by using a 330 OHM resistor attached to the board. He tried many, but 330 ended up being the sweet spot.
