Re: SEGA Game Gear PCB Project w/Pi3

I lost track of this one, sorry. I did manage to snag another GG that's non functional, so I'll be able to take measurements again and rekindle the interest in making the PCBs even if they're just for buttons. I would have to do a lot more digging and learning to make an "AIO" board out of what I've...

Pi3DSXL

Someone contacted me on FB from a Retropie group a little over a year ago asking if I had ever put a Pi into a 3DSXL; well, no. No one had, or tried to my knowledge. A Pi0? Too weak. We went full Pi3. The shell was NOT big enough to house a Pi3 (slimmed), composite screen (HDMI was out of the questi...

Re: My First GBCM3

These are great! Some minor kerning and the service phone number will be spot on.

Re: On-Screen Battery Monitor Options

Has anyone had any issues with this stopping from working after a while? I'm using ADS1115 and it works fine for a week or so then stops. If i do a fresh install of retropie and the script it works again. In MintyShutdown.py go to the end and change the GPIO pin value for enable monitor. Same probl...

Re: On-Screen Battery Monitor Options

Peeked through code as mentioned above, and have no idea what I'm looking for in the code. Is there a specific enable?? I see that holding "SELECT" for 2 seconds should enable it, but it only toggles the screensaver on/off. While playing TMNT and button mashing, the monitor disappeared. Not sure wh...

Re: How to - Use the GPIO for Buttons instead of a Teensy

Maybe It's a silly question... Do I need to apply 5V power to the buttons to make them function? I breadboarded out a controller with buttons that bridge back from the GPIO pin to ground. Some of the buttons worked, others didn't. I was concerned on those that did not work that I maybe had a wiring...

Re: SwanBerry Pi

Here's the scan: https://i.imgur.com/jjrGAI9.jpg Going to get my calipers on it now. It's better to scan it next to a ruler (that's my way to do it) This makes it easier to get real dimensions. Screen Shot 2018-07-19 at 10.58.17 PM.png Yeaaaaaa I was thinking that ha. My rulers on hand are garbage,...

Re: On-Screen Battery Monitor Options

If you're installing the Battery monitor script only and not the combo script be careful what GPIO7 is wired to as this is the trigger for manual shutdown. You could inadvertently shutdown the Pi by pressing whatever your build utilises for GPIO 7. Additionally, in reference to the icon disappearin...
