Re: First power on test - USB / Arduino fail

Pics? Does the "USBHUB" LED turn on? With a multimeter in resistance mode, what is the resistance of the DP and DM pads to GND (and also to each other)?

Sounds like either USB not soldered, or USB shorted, the results from above will help determine which :)

Re: Video Out of GBZ on Kite's Board

Here you go: https://i.imgur.com/4WTeDu2.png NOTE1: When used as above, the audio you receive will be MONO SUMMED in both channels. In order to get STEREO you must put 'something' into the headphone jack. This is because internally the jack has some contacts that when something is inserted, it 'disc...

Re: Reading real cartridges (Update - IT LIVES! - video)

Have you considered using shift registers? You can shift in a full 32 or 24bits very quickly this way with only using 3x data GPIO pins. There is very little overhead and the speed is as fast as you can switch the GPIO pins. I've been doing some experimenting and getting very good performance.. is a...

Re: SAIO LCD only displaying half of rows, leading to washed out display

Are you using a Pi3? Have you check that the pin is soldered ok the Pi3 end? Do you happen to have a spare LCD to try? It's a fairly common LCD for those reversing screens.. If none of that applies, next best thing is probably to send it in to me and I can look and repair. PM me if you want to take ...

Re: [V0.6C1] Connection between GND and GPIO10 on the board

All good questions btw :) The RED that you have highlighted should connect to the 'vcc' that i showed in my previous picture. All this is doing is allowing more current (thicker cable) for GND + VCC (which because we used the '3.3v jumper' means that VCC = 3.3V). The thin FPC can't handle much curre...

Re: [V0.6C1] Connection between GND and GPIO10 on the board

Colours look good to me :) and yes when you hook up USB then the other tests should pass OK. You only need the 3.3v jumper, so that's all good as you have it. Ignore 5V. On the pi3 on the RIGHT side there are two solder holes with + and -, it's a good idea to get some silicone wire and solder those ...

Re: Kite's Dreamcast VMU Project - Work in Progress

I've been watching your progress for a while now as I've been trying to do the same kind of thing for two years, but never could find a screen I was satisfied with. What screen did you use in the original and what screen are you upgrading to? (size and resolution would be appreciated) The original ...

reteopie and recalbox now have integrated moonlight for streaming steam or pc. it should be possible to play Ps2, gamecube or any steam game on the gameboy sword. is it really possible? I've heard of moonlight but never tried to set it up. AFAIK it needs an nvidia GPU on your laptop/desktop and str...

Re: Ive made a huge mistake (desoldering pi from SAIO)

Have you tried soldering the USB anyway? Also did you put kapton tape on the GND bits around the USB? Tinning isn't 100% necessary it just helps.. according to my instructions the USB should have pretty much been the first thing to solder :P I wouldn't try removing the Pi, it will 100% make it worse!

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Kite's Circuit Sword (Original) Pre-Order Thread (#4) (CM3!) - CLOSED

hey kite, just a question on case modifications. Do the tabs (highlighted in my pics) have to be ground down to accommodate your jacks, pot, etc.? Thanks so much. I'm just trying to get everything lined up before arrival... PS I forgot to highlight the tab for the volume cutout. So do any of those ...
