Re: Question for Circuit Sword builds: L1+R1 or L2+R2?

Just do whatever is easiest and uses less wiring I'd say. It really doesn't matter if you use L1,L2,R1, or R2 since you'll map them in emulation station anyway.

Re: Retropie on the Circuit Sword Lite ?

Check here for the image file. Just install that on your SD card. It has retropie set up with all the proper scripts I believe.

Re: Gaboze Pocaio - Battery Monitor (UPDATED)

Would it be possible to setup the safe shutdown script to work with the actual on/off switch up top? Looks as though on the original diagram that what it shows. Did anyone figure this out. I've ordered the round 2 blank board and will be ordered all the other stuff shortly. I'd really like to use t...

Re: Powering the screen

Hey yeah sorry about the basic photos I got everything wired up properly but the screen is drawing to much power and the pi won’t turn on when it’s wired up do you know how to fix this? What screen are you using? Is it rated to run off of 5V? If not, did you do any mods to get it to run on 5V. Did ...

Re: V3 Audio + Battery not working after following other guides

what did you try to open the WPA supplicant file with? try with notepad ++. And also post what you have placed in the one you are using, maybe you have something entered incorrectly. I also assume you are using a pi zero w, since a normal pi zero does not have wifi. As far as sound goes....got any p...

Re: Tinkerboy v2.2

The pads on the pi for D+ and D- are very close together on the pi, and easy to bridge. Make sure there is no continuity between those two pads after soldering, and also make sure the pad for D- is not bridged to ground, since it is so close to that ground point right beside it.

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

Another thing to try if you can't remove the glue, is to strip down another micro USB, like you have for the power, and connect it directly to the pi, and then run the data wires to the button PCB. Or better yet, just use that same plug for the power micro USB, move it to the data USB port, and sold...

Re: Tinkerboy v3 "No Gamepad Detected" issue

I can't see the D+ and D- on the pi side, I would expect the issue is something to due with those connections, since the controls are handled via USB. Does the audio work, since it is also USB controlled. What about the external USB, plug in a keyboard, and see if it works. If not you for sure have ...
