Re: Any clue on how to connect this to a zero without a teensy?

This guide is dated for sure. Use it for the wiring diagram maybe (you can use other gpios though, up to you). But head over to adafruits website to find the guide to install retrogame and set it up. Quite simple and easy to do.

Re: PocketPi FE Pre Pre-Order Preparation

I would avoid Galaxy Gaming, they have bad track record here, the last batch of pre orders people waited a year plus for orders, or never received them at all. With very poor communication. The board itself was good (I got an early run and built from scratch). But there are better options now. But t...

Re: How can i attach my Raspberry pi zero to my Game boy zero?

Seeing the kit you're using will help. Some kits you solder the pi direct to the PCB. Other kits you may need to use individual wires. Let us know what kit you're planning to get and someone can help better... Also may I suggest this: kite makes a great all in one board and they are up for pre sale ...

Re: Alternatives to vhb and kapton tape.

Vhb tape is mostly optional. You could use hot glue, or super glue etc...and yes. Electrical tape will be fine as well.

(There are lots of 3d models nowadays too, that really help reduce the amount of glue needed)

Re: Kite Circuit Sword Screen Issues

Maybe the screen is touching something when closed? I would start by putting a layer of kapton tape on the back of the screen to prevent anything touching it. (Or on the PCB itself) Could also look at covering the LCD ribbon connector as well. It's really strange. But that would be my first step. Wo...

Re: screen power options

I'd just power it from whatever power supply you are using rather than from the Pi's gpio.
