Re: Are Pigrrl Kits worth what they cost? (thinking about a Game Boy Zero)

This is the screen I always buy: https://www.gearbest.com/development-boards/pp_29447.html You can get screens from amazon too for similar prices, but you are never sure of which variant you will be getting. The current gearbest screen is always the same, and it does not need a 5V modification. Tha...

I love this idea. Was that an original SNES controller or a cheap USB one? I want to do the same to avoid the clicky!
It was a cheap USB one from banggood, I think it was this one https://www.banggood.com/SNES-USB-Famic ... mds=search

Re: Sound not working

I suggest you just connect audio only to the amp and the speaker then start troubleshooting from there. Test with another device, like a phone or stereo.

Re: Sound not working

Ok, as it seems to me that your pin 13 and pin 18 are the physical pins. You need to use physical pin 12 (bcm 18, PWM0) and physical pin 33 (bcm13, PWM1) to get the sound out.

Check this link for pinout https://pinout.xyz/pinout/pin12_gpio18#

Re: Sound not working

Pictures always help. Which pin are you using for output and what amplifier? Are you using a low pass filter? Did you add dtoverlay function to your config.txt?

Darth's first GBZ

So my DMG-01 died some 5 years ago and I've been meaning to resurrect it. Up until the pi zero w came out I was very skeptical about my skills of cramping everything into the DMG shell. I messed up the bottom part of my original DMG so I ended up ordering a new one. The screen is GearBest which was ...

Re: PWM Audio Guide

Hey there,
before installing it into my pi0 I just want to confirm that this how the low pass filter is supposed to look like. This is my freeform soldering attempt, will enclose in heat shrink tubing before installing.
