Re: Game Boy 3 A+

Quick question about my PowerBoost 1000c if anybody happens to know. It doesn't appear to run everything with just the USB connected (no battery). I only get 1.2V. When I disconnect the screen, it powers on and the voltage goes up. It appears to work fine with a battery connected. Anybody know why ...

Re: Help locating hand drill parts and sufficient wiring?

I have tried starting my GBZ build and most of my components seem to be working great so far however I have not been able to fully fit these parts in the case because the wiring I ordered is way too thick and rigid and it is causing things to take up a lot more room in the case and it is a big issu...

Re: Button Suggestions for Mounting Inside Cartridge?

More specifically, wouldn't it just be the LCD's backlight switching on and off at the PWM frequency? The higher the duty cycle, the longer it stays on. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pulse-width_modulation#Duty_cycle So, the backlight turns on 146 times per second, and the higher the brightness / d...

Re: Button Suggestions for Mounting Inside Cartridge?

Heh.. someone asked me to record the PWM dimming in slow motion. It's kind of neat. A lot like when you tried recording old CRT televisions. https://i.imgur.com/ZIpzUxo.gifv Luckily, you don't notice the flickering in real life (at least I don't). Though it's at 146Hz, so there's a small possibilit...

Re: Shell modifications question

Thanks for this link. Do you know if that would work with the V3 + add-on board ? My GB Shell took 1 month to be delivered, I don't want to mess it up :D that link is for the v2 board which has a component mounted in that spot, so, no, technically, you do not have to do that... really, there is no ...

Re: First GBZ Build

while waiting on my tinkerboy items to arrive I decided to do a pocket adventures one also. Any wiring guides out there for the pieces below? IMG_0252.jpeg when connecting the pi, just make sure to solder all the circled connections on gpio (at least) as well as the other pads/holes for power, vide...

Re: A (Potentially) Battery-Saving Question (Pi Zero W)

are you running the spi screen? that tends to have a bit of a stutter at first for me too. i'm pretty sure it's related to the GPU throttling that the Pi does when there isn't much load. i think what happens is that the core_freq dials down to ~250hz when there isn't anything going on on the screen...

if its so tinkerboy has to mentioned this on his sales website... mono output is out of date! :-((
i think most 8/16 bit systems are just mono anyway (except genesis, notably), and with the single speaker anyway, mono usually gets the job done ok.

ok, you missunderstood me: I want to know if the headphone Jack provides stereo sound. I can only see one low pass filter for one channel on the pcb.
as far as i can tell, the v2 and v3 board do just output mono sound (which is why he has those mix-down instructions, i would guess).

Re: My "Ultimate" 3A+ Build - With Temp-Controlled Fan

how did you get working the mintybatterymonitor together with tinkerboy´s pcb, which is arduino based controls...? The mintybattery monitor need gpio input with adafuit retrogame... the minty monitor wouldn't work with the v3 board, directly. i used Helder's Retro PSU and its built-in ADS-1015. to ...
