Re: Gaboze Pocaio - Battery Monitor (UPDATED)

Is it possible to add an analog joystick to the the ads1015 along the battery monitoring and make it work in retropie? That would be really interesting in order to make a clean analog setup.

Re: [Guide] ili-9341 true 60 fps fast refresh tutorial

For me the screen works at a very great framerate but it flickers a lot in certains games (mostly in games with a lot of visual changes). I'm using a generic ili9341 with the red pcb and my cmake is: cmake -DSPI_BUS_CLOCK_DIVISOR=6 -DILI9341=ON -DARMV8A=ON -DGPIO_TFT_DATA_CONTROL=22 -DGPIO_TFT_RESET...

Re: Please show me your L/R buttons

For me putting the buttons on the back of the shell is too uncomfortable, I've tried two builts with buttons in the battery slot and everytime I push the buttons from there the console moves towards me and it's really annoying. I found that the best location in the gameboy dmg are the sides (where t...

Re: Gaboze Pocaio, no silicon pads [Update]

Hi ely, first of all thanks for sharing your solution. I think the problem is the footprint of your pcb, which is the same as mine and I think that makes the contact harder. Recently the pads are made with an improved footprint (I think), which may solve the problem that you expose. https://i.snag.g...

Re: Joystick Help Thread

I'm building a gb pocket, and for that reason I'm using the psp joystick which is smallest and lowest profile although the ps vita stick may be the best one in terms of ergonomics and precision. Since I'm using a gaboze pocaio pcb and it uses the gpio for everything, I want to use the remaining gpio...

Re: Need help with the gaboze pocaio

Finally I bought the the one with the red pcb, let´s see how destructive is the process of desoldering haha.

Re: Fury's Gameboy Pocket Pi [in progress]

What i do is apply flux, melt solder on the tip and drag the tip across the ribbon, works very well Doesn't short the pins in that way? It looks like passing the solder over it could bridge the pins easily. I'm just a beginner in soldering small things, so I will practise your technique thanks for ...

Re: Raspberry pi 3 (Removed USB Ports) Broken?

Much easier to just use a wire cutter to remove the ethernet and usbports. IMG_2564.JPG Hi. how much is okay to cut from the pi3 pcb, where the ports are, without cutting some pads and lines that are in use. i still need 2 usb pads to solder on to. i found the solution my self :) http://i.imgur.com...
