Re: Low profile power switch?

I may have been incorrect about the power switch. I searched the forum to find some pictures of old SAIO builds and came across the following post where a user speaks about the need for a low-profile switch: Also, I was able to source a lower profile switch (Thanks Camble!), that allowed me to do th...

Re: Low profile power switch?

For the SAIO, there should be no need to cut the cartridge slot. The power switch provided by Kite should fit in the corner without the need to modify the case. Take a look at pics from other completed builds. That being said, can you post a pic if the problem remains?

Re: Help with Circuit Sword... from 2018!!

I also finally got around to starting a CS build that I ordered in 2018 (revision v1.1E). You'll want to download the latest release from the GitHub page and follow the setup procedure documented on the wiki . Once you've got your device powered-on and have passed the initial tests, you'll likely wa...

Re: CS DPI Timings

Just curious -- what was the resolution to this? Should we use 6400000 for the 640x480 screen as well?

Re: Kite's boards additions

This is interesting, thanks! It means you can run the original unpatched version with this change, right? Yep! No need to patch the code -- just change the fb mode before/after running pcsx-rearmed. Although, this doesn't fix the controller HAT problem [1]. BTW, I saw you submitted a pull request a...

Re: Kite's boards additions

Resurrecting this old thread in case someone in the future runs into this... The framebuffer mode needs to be changed before pcsx-rearmed starts, then reverted back after it finishes. I typically do this as part of the run command. /opt/retropie/configs/psx/emulators.cfg: default = "pcsx-rearmed" pc...

Re: Pi zero w random crashes

Unless there's a physical problem with your build (e.g., low voltage, bad soldering, bad components) your problem likely require debugging the emulation software and/or operating system. Start in the system's logs and look for errors or odd messages in general (google "journalctl" command). You'll n...

Re: Video/Visual Guide - Brightness Control for LQ035NC111

Excellent hack. I'm no electrical engineer but I was under the impression that you'd need a 555 timer or something to PWM the LED backlight enable pin. I guess not?

Re: RPi alternatives that support DPI

Nano Pi Fire 2a or 3. Works fine but uses a proprietary communication protocol ("FriendlyARM’s one-wire technology") for some of the commands. Supposedly, the driver is open source.
