Re: Joystick Help Please

SO the Joystick is working but controls are inverted. Is there a simple way to invert the X and Y axis in retro arch or retropie?

THanks

Re: Temp controlled cooling fan and inverted analog stick.

Power the fan with the 5v pin going through a transistor that is connected to a GPIO pin. A script would control the fan by toggling the GPIO at whatever temps are coded. As far as the analog sticks, I assume you can invert the control within the arduino code. Hope this helps. ;) I figured I could ...

Setting up retropie fir the first time

Hey peeps. I am waiting on a new screen as it seems to be shorting or something might be wring with the ribbon cable. In the meantime i wanted to ask about settings and controls. When my screen worked during testing, i noticed that the text was small and not overly clear to read. Do you just do your...

I re attached the ribbon cable and it all worked! I ensured my connections were soldered cleanly. Re check...

White Screen on first boot

Hello friends.

I have just gone to do my first boot after completing my first GBZ. It turns on to a white screen only.

During my test out of the shell it logged to retropie but now i do not know what went wrong.

Any ideas?
