Do some searching around my friend. I have been guilty of asking before I look hard for the answer but it is most definitely out there.
Good luck!

Re: Internal Organization

I know that you can use fairly thin wire for data but you need thicker wire for grounds and such. What is the smallest anyone wou...

Re: New members, introduce yourself!

Got started on my build two weeks ago but tend to run out of time pretty quick. Working two jobs can do that sometimes. Glad to be apart of the forum and I am looking forwar...

Re: So retrogamingconsolesinc.com has trademarked both Retropie and Emulation station

"R3tro0 Pi3" and "3mulat10n $tat10n"? Am I understanding all of this right? There was one group that swept the trademark out from under everyone by taking the open source software and claiming it as their own (retrogamingconsolesinc). The Retropie team that was seeking legal help was able to obtain ...

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

So I'm just beginning my build and I bought this screen on ebay. Listing said it was 640x480, but I doubted it because of the price.

Re: Internal Organization

I will try and get some pictures up soon. I guess I did not take the time to look at how most people were having them organized. I dont think the wire i have is too thick. I think there just was too much in some places and it caused problems. I will look into using the usb connector. I am going to w...

Internal Organization

I need organization help. Where do i mount everything inside my gameboy case? I got the entire thing working and all that fun jazz then when it came time to close it up, it was a no go. Poor cable management on my part probably but I ended up damaging my pi zero and the pp22 pad ripped off. I give u...
