Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

VeteranGamer, I'd be interested to know how you're doing your mounting of the components in there, what you are using as an insulated backing between the components and the LCD, and ESPECIALLY how you've mounted the charging port, since it's one component that NEEDS to be solidly attached. I'm worki...

Re: Elite Wii U Gamepad with RetroPi 3

Ah, crap, I sympathize. I run a small business (unrelated to this, selling headphones) and I don't know why, but shipments to Brazil from the U.S. *are* always astronomical, much more money than to any other country that I'm aware of. I have never researched to figure out why, but it's a bummer. I w...

Re: Elite Wii U Gamepad with RetroPi 3

Mugen, I did the math and it’s cheaper to buy a nonworking gamepad than to try to find everything you need individually, so I went ahead and bought a nonworking one for my build. The one I found had a nonresponsive touchscreen and needed a new battery, both things that would not affect its performan...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Actually, yes! Watch this space over the next few days, as I have some updates to the process and have gotten a little farther (still not complete yet)! Thank you, jbenedetto84, for checking in and nudging me. This is exactly the reason I created this thread, so the community could hold me accountab...

Shaving Down the Gamepad Interior

EDIT: I have decided to move this step and all subsequent ones into my post on the first page, so they can be easily followed. Please see this post for the content that used to be here.

Re: Help with battery script for 2S setup!

Thank you, cbafun -- the stepdown converter doesn't have that EN pinout, which is the reason I wasn't able to use the craic Pi Power thing, although that was definitely my first thought when I started this build. :-( KonnorJ, I appreciate your point. I started the build as series rather than paralle...

Re: Elite Wii U Gamepad with RetroPi 3

IrieMars, did you you purchase a mini-USB port connector (in addition to the regular USB-A connectors) to wire to the Teensy? I think you mentioned that but I missed that in the parts list.

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Cheers, all! This is my first ever electronics project. I hope maybe somebody else who is also a noob can follow along once I’m all done, hence the level of detail. I am encountering difficulty, however, figuring out how to incorporate a battery status indicator. I have inquired on another thread bu...

Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

Hi, all, does anybody know how I might make a battery monitor solution (i.e., what hardware and software I should use) if I’m making a 2S 7.4V version of this, as outlined earlier in this thread? It uses a stepdown converter, not a Powerboost, so I can’t use the Lipopi circuit and script that Banjok...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Thanks, IrieMars! I have the HDMI cable listed as part #13 up there, but I don’t have a photo because I haven’t bought mine yet — because I’m not sure how long a cable to get. I see a lot that look longer than I need. I don’t want to get one too short, what length would you recommend? Also, it looks...
