Re: Need help with a project idea

when you get to powering the pi, check out the snes zero project, for doing it over the hdmi: https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2753 Hi, Could this be powered by a lipo battery including the controller? I have a query whether the whole lot including the controller can be powered fr...

Powering USB controller from 3.7V

Hi, I've got a query for a new build. I'm intending to power a USB Xbox controller from the pi zero, which itself will be powered from a 3.7V 1350mAh lipo battery. I.e. will the controller work with only 3.7V? The rumble packs have been removed so its only the controller buttons and circuitry left w...

RaspStation 1

My new build is a PS1 with 4GB RPi 4B inside. It uses 3D printed parts bought from eBay for the front controller ports, HDMi port, audio ports and power port as well as an infill for the CD laser and a cradle for the RPi and cooling fan. It's a WIP - probably 90% complete. What I've done so far is c...

Re: Introducing - GBA SP Zero

Just so everyone knows I took him up on the offer and when time permits I will work on this project. Although the LCD seems to be SPI I will try to get it working as DPI in the end build. That's fantastic Helder. If you can get a commercial product sorted (you're the best person to accomplish this)...

I've had good luck with increasing the hole size a little at a time then fitting in the PCb to be sure I'm still centered. Its slow but saved me from a shell replacement last time.
That was the best way and what I did on my second attempt after going gung-ho and messing it up the first time.

Looks great! I've built a couple Freeplay Zeros and yea the X & Y buttons were a pain each time.
Thanks.

I even used the supplied hole drilling guide (hot glued to the front shell so it wouldn't move) and realised after drilling that one of the holes in the guide was off by about 0.5 to 1mm.

My first Minty Pi Build V2

I must say that this was a very frustrating build.

I found it very fiddly to get the buttons to align (its not perfect now by any stretch).

I might have another go at improving it when my patience returns.

99% complete so posting for prosperity.

New Freeplay GBA Zero

My new build...

Cutting the holes for the X and Y buttons was a pain. I messed up the first time but nailed it on the second attempt.

I like the white case, grey button combo.

Re: Compute Module 3 carrier board

I'm sure for people like Helder, Kite, Tinkerboy, this would be a doddle to design and sell relatively cheaply. The CMs can be bought for cheap too. this is a pointless idea (IMHO) ..... the CM3 is a useful board/module if used in conjunction with another PCB/Board/Project.... which will eliminate ...

Compute Module 3 carrier board

Hi, I've checked and couldn't find anything about a custom carrier board for a compute module, however thought wouldn't it be useful for pi projects? A very simple carrier board with input power pins, microsd slot, gpio pins, usb data pins, screen pins, etc in as small a footprint as practicable sho...
