Re: white screen

I would check all solder points between the pi and dpi board. Also be sure you have an image installed with the proper drivers to run the screen. I am assuming tinkerboy provides an image, or has instructions on how to install the proper drivers. It won't work without the drivers.

Re: First GBZ. Newbie

Best bet would be to get a kite sword lite when he opens preorders. (Or the regular sword if you want cm3, instead of a pi zero.) All you need to buy is a shell, buttons, etc... And a battery. Also a pi zero if doing a lite. The regular sword includes a cm3. Check here for more information: https://...

Re: Building a kit I bought years ago.

Those battery indicator LEDs; do they light up only when the battery is charging? Im hoping to use them as a battery level indicator. Or is there a battery level indicator implemented through software in retropi? I can't recall exactly if they light up only when charging or not. You'd have to conne...

Re: Building a kit I bought years ago.

Well then, post what you have in the kit and someone can likely help you out and see if you have enough to build a GBZ. I would assume if you bought a kit from someone it would have included all the necessary bits...But who knows.

Re: Help no sound through GPIO

It's also been a long time since I've done a gbz...but one thing to try is to flip the wiring on the

Re: Help no sound through GPIO

The amp has a small screw pot on it. Which can be used to adjust volume. Maybe that's it? Easiest solution.

As for retrogame. Check is gpio 18 is referenced in it at all...

You could also swap to gpio 13, which is also a pwm pin. You would need to change the config.txt line as well.
