Hi all, just got a videopac off of ebay, a working one.
Thought I would share what I'm gonna do to it in terms of mods.

Found another one in a basement a while back which I posted about,
but that one was dead as nails. It said G7000/01 on the bottom
of that one so I assume it was the first version as well.

Apart from tired controllers and a powersupply that
sounds like a rattlesnake this new one is great.
Need to look into that powersupply... Could be a
transformer-plate has loosened, seeing as it shuts up
when i press on the case.

I'll try adding a powerswitch, a powerLED, build a RGB-board
and hook it up to my Framemeister and capture some
footage with my elgato. Maybe move the controller ports
to the front, but I'm not sure that'll be worth the hassle tho.

I've already got a composite-board from tinkering with  the last one
so I immidiately plopped that inside of it and also mounted a scart-connector
so that I'll be ready for the rgb-board once I get going on that.
Also, I've got a sync-stripper for my framemeister so I'll try using
the composite signal directly for sync, should work I think.
Didn't bother with using a DIN-connector, there's enough room in the console
 for a scart-socket anyways so I used what i had.

My multitool/Dremel-clone's speed-dial is stuck on max speed so
cutting this was nervewrecking, turned out good enough.
It's on the back after all, won't have to look at it much.

Only composite for now, can't have that for too long
or I'll probably get physically ill, haha.

The Framemeister does wonders for most signals, but
it's only so much it can do with composite.
Still, doesn't look to bad.
Give this man a Jopac!
