    I've google'ed around, but couldn't find anyone that built a DIY n64 cart from scratch :/
    I mean with a Circuit board diagram with a part list.

    Here's what I've found, but not very noob/breadboard friendly:
    https://github.com/hww/N64-Cartrige
    https://github.com/hww/PV-Backup
    https://github.com/n64dev/docs

    Would like to get a breadboard with a homebrew(libdragon, etc) rom running.
    I'm not an electrical engineer but I'm not a afraid to do some soldiering.

    Something like this:

    I'm a big fan of André LaMothe since the 90's and I've ordered his Black Art of Video Game Console Design book.

    I guess I'm asking if anyone has done something similar before and has for some pointers or helpful resources etc.
