Re: Spyder's Gameboy Pocket build (Gaboze Pocaio Round 2)

Those pogo pins are D+ and D- nothing to do with power. But usb data. Which wont affect anything. Not sure why the pi doesn't contact them though. Maybe you were supposed to remove the black sheath on the headers so the pi can slide down more? Also the pi is powered via gpio. I would have resoldered...

Re: Rodocop's 3rd GBZ [COMPLETE]

I'm curious: is it worth it to have case borders around the screen (and Gameboy Zero screen protector)? They partially cover the screen - is it ok? I think that image can be adjusted to fit the visible part, but seems that it will be distorted. We'll since you cut out the screen it would be nice to...

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

Hey all, I was reading this tread and I wanted to try it. I couldn't fine the exact screen he used, but later I found out that it just needed 9 pins and ili9341 driver. I was wondering if this one could work: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CZL6QIQ/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=A30QSGOJR8LMXA&psc...

Re: Glass screen covers

I don't know if you'll get much interest. Also, a 2-3mm border would be ideal if think. 1mm is pretty narrow.

Also as for text ones. Check handheld legend they have a nice one with "gameboy zero" lettering.

You can also request customs designs from jelly belly customs and bluish squirrel.

Thanks a lot for the guiding @rodocop!!! Glad you got it going. Did you ever get the audio going by adding the line I mentione...

Re: TinkerBoy Game Boy Controller v2.1.01 Problem?

I've never used a tinkerboy board with the promicro like that. But you're certain those two wires running to pp22 and pp23 on the pi are D+ and D-? When looking at pro micro diagrams it doesn't list them as data pins. Shows them as RX and GND. I would confirm that, and try the method mentioned by ti...

Re: TinkerBoy Game Boy Controller v2.1.01 Problem?

Well in your pics the pro micro is not connected to the pi at all. You need it connected to the pi's usb pads (pp22 and pp23) As for audio, did you add the proper line to the config.txt? (See below for what you need to add to the bottom of the config.txt) Also double check your soldering too. And ma...

Re: Need help reading Gameboy pocket button portion of pcb

My suggestion is to not bother with the original PCB. But if you want to wire it you'll just need a multimeter and find some vias or test pads which connect to the button contacts points. Hard to say what's what, as it's hard to see the traces in the picture. Alternatively you could just go here and...
