Medal of Honor: Warfighter

New project for the month, this will be based on Medal of Honor: Warfighter developed by Danger Close and published by EA.

The Xbox 360 motherboard will be placed inside an Ammunition Box

I have done this before, but used two ammo boxes that were stacked on top of another. I was happy how this turned out, but I know there was plenty of room for improvements, This time going for a cleaner, single box look with a theme.

The ammunition box will need to be shortened in length as it is too long

IPB Image

Controller compared in size to the case

IPB Image

I removed the rubber seal around the lid, these cases are watertight the handles are tight on this case and its not something I want to struggle with opening and closing the case.

IPB Image

Some of these designs will be re done on the case once finished, as well as some Medal of Honor based text and designs

Perfect condition inside the case

I always loved the ammo case mods,...was gonna build one for my PC years ago but never could find an ammo box around here.

Looking forward to your progress,....keep us updated

Bought a new 4GB Xbox 360 S this week to use in the project, with the spare case I might make another built in screen for another project.

There is a few Youtube videos showing how to take apart the Xbox 360 S. Ill show some basic pictures of opening the case.

Pry open the top grill

Top and bottom surround

Take care when taking the faceplate off as there is a ribbon cable that will easily tear.

Drilling out each of the small welds on the support bar, wanted a cleaner look on the case

IPB Image

Pry it up and the bar should remove easily, with minimal damage to the case

Decided I will not be chopping this case, all that work to take out a few inches does not seem worth the effort. I don't mind a larger case. Support bar left some marks, sanded back what I can and will finish off with some filler

IPB Image

Sanded back the lid and a coat of primer

Still deciding on colours, I don't want to stick to the standard green again, maybe matte black or a dark grey with the stencil lettering and maybe some engraved badges of the Danger Close and EA logo's.

Thin coat of filler

There's a much easier way to open back part of a slim - apply pressure with a thumb on either side and it pops apart! smile.gif Try it out..

Ive tried that method. It never works for me...

To open the inner tab where you have the 2 screw drivers remove the lower service tag to reveal a small pin hole where you can push a paper clip through and open the hard to get to tab..

Small progress will have more tomorrow got some time to spend on my cases hopefully.

Etch Primer on bare metal then finished in Primer

IPB Image

Motherboard will be mounted with some stand off's, will drill and tap these into the case. The disc drive will be opening and closing inside this case, not going to make it come out the top or side this time. Maybe next time on a better sized ammo box I will try this again.

There will be space for a controller and game cases inside. Store everything you need to play.

Sorry for the lack of Updates, slow progress but its getting finished.

I was lucky enough to get invited to a preview event of Medal of Honor Warfighter at EA headquarters in Sydney, we got to play some early code of the game, and it was impressive, the game i have been looking forward too. A mix between Call of Duty's fast pace and more open maps of Battlefield.

Perfect mix for a great game.

IPB Image

Front USB ports and 3 switches for Power, sync and eject

IPB Image

Rubber Grommet at the back of the case, able to fit the power cable, HDMI and Kinect cables.

IPB Image

Engraved badges with Medal of Honor text, with the EA and Danger Close logos.

IPB Image

Just fits with some modification of the top lid.
