An easy to use drop-in kit to upgrade your Game Boy Color. This "Cloud" version is yet another type of IPS backlight you can buy for your Game Boy.

  • A Glass Game Boy Color TFT Screen Lens is NOT included in this kit.
  • Display is transflective, meaning it works wonderfully in direct light!
  • No shell modification required for regular GBC Shells
  • Beautiful LCD with backlight
  • Includes shielding sticker for the back of the PCB
  • Brightness adjustment without soldering wires
  • Spacers included (matches height of provided TFT LCD)
  • GBC console not included
  • Double sided foam adhesive is not required and is meant to help center lens if not using spacers. 

IPS COMPARISON CHART

Notes:

  • The touch controller can be placed near the top of the console near the IR data transfer window. It is located on the opposite side (side further from the IR senor) when compared to the unbranded TFT GBC kit.

  • The display area is slightly smaller than the original so a custom lens must be used to mask properly.

Installation:

Both video and illustrated guides are available for this mod.

WARNINGS:

  • Test before installation! When you receive a backlight/LCD kit, you should perform a dry run before installing to assure that nothing has been damaged in transit. A dry run or test fit means the kit is not installed in the shell. This includes the use of adhesives, brackets, and any performed soldering. All ribbon cables should have no bends or creases in them. If you are unsure how to perform a dry run, please contact our support team and we will be happy to help. Backlight kits that have been installed are not eligible for replacement or return.

  • LCD may break if put under too much pressure or dropped. Please exercise extreme caution when installing.

Fantastic Drop-in solution

no soldering. the Q5 is probably a superior screen, but this one allowed me to use the original shell with no modification to the plastic.fantastic looking still!

Perfect mod for OEM shells

If you don't want to mod your shell, this is the perfect mod for you. no cutting or soldering required. The LCD screen might feel a little more old-school than some of the more modern IPS mods, but it has a nice aesthetic for the GBC hardware. Absolutely love it and plan to use it for future GBC mods so long as it's still available.

Absolutely Fantastic Kit

Really easy to work with. The whole mod is nice and simple but adds a ton of value to your GBC. Works in full sun, well-saturated colors, and looks great with the trimmed glass mod.
