Zero control - DS edition

https://i.imgur.com/kshFRnB.jpg tl;dr Lately I’ve been experimenting with using a Arduino pro micro as a HID for controllers for RetroPie.

Pi man arcade (mini arcade)

https://i.imgur.com/wFDYqq3.jpg tl;dr I wasn’t using my pigrr2 so I decided to strip it and make something I would use out of its parts.

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

Oh so you couldn't get it to work on the breakout board but could on the bare screen? yes Sorry to bother. I just saw what your amazing achievement. However, I can not duplicate what you did with the fbcp-ili9341 cmake. I have the same st7789vw bare board and wire to raspberry zero. Fbtft can activ...
