Re: Fraggle's second GBZ (Helder AIO 2.2 + Camble's Safe Shutdown)

I see you notched the corner out of your battery compartment. Was that so it could close without the pi hitting there? I just essentially did a complete rebuild of mine with @Dextech battery that fills the whole battery compartment but the pi hits the compartment and It looks like if I trim there s...

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

Step 9. Carefully pry open the case on the HDMI to USB power adapter and solder a jumper wire as seen in the image. Then Reassemble the adapter. This adapter will provide 5V to your Pi Zero using the the HDMI 5V wire. the Normal HDMI spec is only 50mA. That is why this adapter is needed to provide ...

Re: Please Help - What are my options?

maybe i misunderstood what you stated..... Sorry that's what I meant by... 1) configure your pi to use wifi before you remove the keyboard. The retropie method you suggested is great because it has a menu and is simple. But yeah there are a lot of ways you could do this - most depending on if you c...

Re: Please Help - What are my options?

that may not work out..... if you don't have a WiFi dongle connected, you wont have anything to configure (it wont see/find anything to configure) You can configure the settings prior to any NIC being present - you don't have to tie connection details to any specific interface. You just need to add...

Re: Please Help - What are my options?

I followed all of the steps for the gameboy zero build. This is my first build so I decided (for some reason) that it would be a good idea to do all of the hardware first and take care of the software last. I need to connect the pi (I'm using a pi 2) so I can install retro-game and another script. ...

Re: Retroarch Menu Freezing Sometimes.

I am unsure if this is a hardware or software issue... First, access the terminal on the device and run. /opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/bin/retroarch -v --menu --log-file=~/retroarch.log This will start retroarch in menu mode - and output a verbose log to "~/retroarch.log". Once it is running, l...

Re: Battery from battery pack

You *could* use them as cells - but not the board as a powerboost. A power boost really does two things - firstly it acts as a load-sharing battery charger - secondly it has a DC/DC boost converter to raise the output voltage from 3v7 to 5v2. That board will not have any kind of load sharing on it s...

Re: BW screen variant 9 working without mod

I'm not confident enough with my soldering to solder to the pin. I'm waiting on a battery and PSU. I think I'll try and do a more solid solder once I have that and see what the picture is like. As it stands the flickering stops after a few minutes. If that doesn't work I'll remove the IC like the w...

Re: Video snaps playing at full volume.

I don't think there is a user editable config - you would need to change emulationstation source and compile it. Actually it would be a fairly trivial change looking at it. The file is: /es-core/src/components/VideoPlayerComponent.cpp - line 113 Currently you have... 113: int OMXVolume = (int)((perc...

Re: EmulationStation quits to console on some consoles [Solved]

Ok, after the crash, at the terminal enter. cat /dev/shm/runcommand.log What is the output of that? It should tell you exactly what the problem is as it logs the, system, rom, arguments etc plus an errors generated by the emulator in question. If it doesn't help you -just post the result here. Also,...
