Making a Nintendo DS Macro XL

Oct 28, 2023 | Retro Gaming

All this started from watching the Macho Nacho video about making a Gameboy Macro using a faulty Nintendo DS or DS XL.

Doing the mod

As referenced in the youtube video I just followed the guide here on All you need is a couple of 330 ohm resistors and some wire to move the speaker.

The only issue I ran into was I had to swap the ‘main screen’ option from the top screen to the bottom screen through the menus.

Fixing the case

To make everything a bit nicer I removed the top case entirely and used JB Weld to fill in the holes left over and the cracked casing. Because it was cracked and filled in I had to paint it anyway so I went with a gloss black paint for something a bit different.
