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...

Re: ADS1015 Battery monitoring + Joystick connection

try this.... https://github.com/Helder1981/OneForAll 111MVvih.jpg just one thing to note (IMHO) if your not using this for something like a RPi3 or equivalent.... then adding a analog stick is a bit overkill and pointless as most system/games don't require/need the use for one..... if you are using...

Re: HELP? - Odd Screen Problem

Damn, I thought it was the LCD ribbon cable that had split but maybe it was this all along why my lcd screen wasn't working. https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=43&t=8366&p=76562#p76562 When the new LCD comes in, I'll test it first and if it still doesn't work, I'll be clipping that chip off t...

Re: New Build - GBZ

Well, what a frustrating day! Managed to wire up the audio circuit with the amp, stereo pot and speaker no problems. Scratching my head with the safe shutdown pcb though and battery monitor pcb. Ordered both from Galaxy Gaming (I'm in the UK). https://galaxygaming.co.uk/shop/gameboy-zero/gameboy-zer...

Re: ADS1015 Battery monitoring + Joystick connection

I'm in the same dilemma. I can't get the Helder board in the UK. Galaxy Gaming don't have it in stock, and like most other things from Helder, seem to very rarely have it in stock. Looking for an alternative which is readily available to power a RPi 3A+. Don't mind waiting the few weeks for it to tr...

Re: Game Boy 3 A+

@Dawilson123 Thanks! I haven't done anything special for the power circuitry (although maybe I should have?). Based on infinitLoop's reply, I may try to get a bigger PSU, perhaps the RetroPSU . It's actually the original PCB cut down for just the power switch. I wanted to use as little hot glue as ...
