View Full Version : breeding nes toploader and a/v famicom?

By now, I'm sure most of you are familiar with the youtube video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kka6FGl9kcw) of the alleged unmodded NES-2 with A/V out and the controversy surrounding it. Whether you believe it's real or it's a cobbled together nes and famicom is outside the scope this thread. The idea of combining the two systems intrigues me. However, since I've never so much as touched an NES-2 or an A/V Famicom, I have no idea how difficult it would be. It looks as if you'd just need to replace the famicom's cart connector with the nes one and then put the entire thing into NES-2 housing and you'd be set. But how hard would swapping the cart connector be? Like I said, I've never seen the insides of either in person.
Also, is the A/V famicom capable of using the US light gun?
I'm just trying to figure this out before I plunk down good money on the two systems.

You can't just drop in a NES connector, NES has 72 pins, Famicom only 60.
You could probably wire in one sitting a bit above the PCB, but then you might as well just use a converter.
I have an AV Famicom, use a Famicom-NES converter with no problems.
AV Famicom cannot use the US light gun, there are pins missing on the NES type connector, but it's pretty easy to take said pins from the Famicom EXT connector and connect them internally to the proper pins on the NES type connector.

I don't see what is so fascinating about it. The NES Top Loader model 101 is extremely overrated. There is nothing wrong with the so called Toaster NES. It outputs AV. It will play any cartridge you put in it if you clean your cartridges and if you have to just buy a new connector to put on there. Plus the idea of butchering a AV Famicom to play NES games just sounds extremely retarded to me. Use a converter/adapter to play your NES games on a Famicom if you have to play them all on the same system.
