Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

I was hoping y’all could take a look at my diagram and see if it looks ok or if anything is out of place. Thanks so much!

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

Hey, Kopskey, I haven’t gotten to that point yet, but I wasn’t planning to retain the home panel, because I figured the connector was proprietary or something. I wish I could! But I was just going to try to hook up one or two of the buttons independently with switches and make do with that. If you l...

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

A great question! I have added the following info to the main parts list. I’m afraid I need a lot of help describing the general specs people should be looking for. Anyone who is good with this, please help me explain it better! EDIT: My sense is that anywhere between 4 and 10 mH is good for the cho...

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

Please see my first draft of the wiring diagram below. Before I finalize it and add it to the instructions, I wanted to let the community take a peek and see if everything looked okay. Let me know if anything’s out of place — thanks! [EDIT: I can already see the “3” is missing from the potentiometer...

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

Thanks!! That's actually a really good idea. One cable to rule them all. In theory, it should work just fine! In practice, I admit that I don't know if there are unforeseen complications this might bring (e.g., do any other components need to be adjusted?), so please anyone leave a comment if they h...

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

Yes, a bit! Thank you for the nudge! I have posted a bit on some further prep I had to do (still working on posting it all), and I will soon post the schematic I’ve drawn up, so the community can make sure it looks good! That will be my goal for this week. I’m moving house so some of the heavier stu...

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...
