Im new, not to forums tho... i participate in 5 and own 1. I seen a modded xbox and i just had to mod mine. so i put some ideas together to come up with this plan... (its made in paint so it looks wierd)

user posted image

at the bottem left of the 'X' is a semi circle of glass so you can see half the disc (its suposed to look like halo in there tongue.gif )

the center jewel is lit up by 8 green leds that surround it

get the 12 pc. (w/ controller skins) diamond plate skin from skinsane.com and slap that on

above the controller ports is a number (1,2,3,4), replace those with green LEDs that light up when a controller is plugged in, or if i get some wireless controllers, when the controller is on...(in the pic it says that 1st control is plugged in, even tho its not tongue.gif )

so hows that sound/look? please tell me some more ideas

I saw someone on here with an orange a black box do it. You're going to need to dremel out the numbers above the ports but I'm not sure how to go about getting LED's there? Maybe 4 inch cathodes?

EDIT: Er...actually I didn't read you're whole question. I'm not sure how to get it to wher it's only on when a controller is plugged in. Forget everything I said and I guess all I can say is try to search.

I would leave the numbers, you're going to have to sand that off, then drill a hole for the LEDs.

But generally, you would do it the same way you would wire the controller ports, or controller dongle (if you only want it on when controller is plugged in).

thanks for the encouragement, ive only got one negative reaction so i will definatly go through with this. of course the window is misplaced cuz i made the layout in MS paint (my dad kiked me outta his house and thats where my photoshop is so...) ive made a site full of tutorial links, the plan, and when i start; a worklog, at my modding site. it might be a while until i start as i have no $. But i will sell my N64 and the money from that will go to the modding.

why do a skin? might as well paint it if ur doing all the other hard work. skins just dont look the same as a fulyl painted box, its really not as hard to paint as some people make it seem.

This is coming from someone who bought a chrome case instead of painting it chrome...dry.gif j/k laugh.gif Yea chrome paint sucks... All you have to be good at for a paintjob is taping and making things even. Other than that it is easy.
