pretty good work, i would love to do this except i cant get the jewel off my controller
Jan 10 2004, 06:24 AM
yeah getting the jewel off is a bitch. I have 2 fat controllers and my other one's jewel just wouldn't budge. This one took a while but it finally came off.

I like it, but you should look into making a jewel for it, i did on mine and i love it, although when i did an led in the button mod i rendered it useless and havent found time to try and fix it, i still love to show it off, yours would be awesome if you had like a biohazard symbol on it or sumthin, but heres mine
Hope you decide to make one, cuz i love how its lookin now

HTwey are both cool I just am waiting for leds to get her another week

good advice, when I think about it a biohazard symbol would be cool. I don't really know where I can get controller jewels, anyone know? It would be awesome if there is a place I could order one, although I guess I could measure the right diameter and dust up on my Photoshop skills as well...thanks.

there real easy to make yourself,
what i did is i scanned in my old jewel, used that for sizing, drew out the flames and zero then scanned that and resized it then i made it black and white, got some clear mail label stickers for laserjet printers then printed it, worked out great!
I acctually wrote a rather in depth tutorial a while back on it if you wanna search for it.

bloody nice job mate what type of LEDS u use
Jan 10 2004, 02:58 PM
Maybe I'll try that I just gotta get my scanner working
I used three 5mm green LED's from LSDiodes
Jan 10 2004, 03:01 PM
lsdiodes is the best, me 2, and i used them for everything else on my xbox, i used radio shack led's on my playstation and they blew, go to lsdiodes!!!
Jan 10 2004, 03:08 PM
LEDs can blow :S well only if u dont use the correct resistor...
i got a CCFL in my ps2 Grill.... thats about the most modding ive done (well and a messiah chip).
ps2 nice an quiet, xbox injured rhino, but a nice fan mod shud fix that, so i will
can u play without staring at the controller?
Jan 10 2004, 03:10 PM
I'm using a 100ohm resistor so my LED's should be fine right? Anyways it lights up my face while I'm playing
but I can still use it it's not hard at all.

I did that EXACT thing dude, just put green led's (also from LSdiodes, but mine were 3mm). But then I fried some components using a 40w soldering iron too long and the controller spazzed out.

FYI, the easiest way to get the jewel off a fatty controller is take it apart, then, holding the front plastic just like you're playing a game, start twisting the handles and you'll see the glue under the edge of the jewel turn white as it breaks loose...
takes about 5 seconds to get it off
just don't twist the front of the controller too hard or you risk breaking it...

looks pretty cool man. props

I got my jewel off by opening the controller up, and then dremmeling off that little tab that is at the bottom on the back. After that i just stabbed a flat head screwdriver in there and pushed the jewel off.

/ that's a godo idea Dan too bad I didnt think of that

Looks great. A jewel would make it look much better though.
