Although its close to the same size as the funnyplaying, it still needs a little work on the shell if you buy the pretrimmed one. Also need to be mindful of and use the provided insulation film. Since one of the touch sensors ends up stickered to the shell you will have to be mindful that you will not be able to fully remove it again. And while the color changing option is useless for GBC games it makes playing OG GB games on the color a bit more authentic.
Part works great and the screen is super clear
Definitely a bit more involved than my other LCD upgrades but well worth it! Glad I watched a video before doing it, prepping the PCB was important as to not damage the screen, but the finished product is an absolute delight. The facelift was well overdue on this little treasure. This was a fun little project!
Though unbranded, it's quality is excellent. This makes playing old gameboy games on GBC great because you can set the color to a grey scale like GBP.
Like someone mentioned below, it seems as if some of these kits are not centered. I've done several installs with the V2 and V3 kits from HHL and other companies and it always seems as if the V3 ones are just randomly off by a few pixel rows. Otherwise, it works great.
I'm new to Game Boy modding and this is my first project! I'm very happy with the final results! Installing the IPS screen was rather time consuming. (About 4 hours, including realigning the screen correctly) This shell that I used is the FunnyPlaying modified shell (it's meant for IPS V2, but it helped get me started with cutting the shell), all buttons excluding the IR sensor and power switch are all from the original Game Boy Color. I had some help from my boyfriend, so figuring how to cut the shell and installing the screen in was not bad with his help. Since there are no instructions included with the screen, I recommend having someone help you if you have never done this mod before. If you are unsure about any of the steps of installing the screen, I'd also recommend watching tutorials from YouTube channels (The Retro Future's videos has been especially helpful) or refer to HandHeld Legend's resources. Overall, the quality of the screen is excellent and I'm looking forward to playing my favorite games on a backlit screen! Highly recommend!
