"B A Start & Select" text indicators on shell after painting

Hey all, pretty basic question here, but I'm wondering if all the great minds have figured it out yet. So the original gameboy shells have a nice B, A, select and start on them.

Re: [ PRE ORDER ] Gameboy Zero PocketPi FE

Do we have an ETA on the guide? I know that Bluup as well as galaxy gaming have been working in overdrive, and there are a lot of pieces and parts to this, Just wondering for us bare board builders!

Re: First post! "Small parts" for Pi Zero Pocket

Thanks again for the feedback.

I was able to order almost everything on arrow.com. However one part - 0805ZD104KAT2A AVX - was sold out on arrow, and I can't seem to source it anywhere, does anyone have any tips as to where I can get that one piece without waiting 28 weeks?!

First post! "Small parts" for Pi Zero Pocket

Hi all, First post here and I'm glad to be here! I've done some light modding/soldering/console repair in the past. Made a "pro-sound" backlit dmg a few years back for chiptuning and all that fun stuff, so, naturally I knew one day I'd be building a gameboy pi of some sort. I'm really feeling the ga...
