Using 4 rechargable Li-po AA batteries

I should have the whole original battery department left for fun activities :) So why not use it for what it was really intentended to do and put 4 batteries in. There are lots of ~1200maH AA Li-Po (3.6V or 1.5V) batteries on Amazon, so th...

Re: smoki's GBZ

Not much today, changed the layout so the Pi is on the button board side for easier wiring. Added the power switch, micro usb charging board, two shoulder buttons and normal usb port. Everything attached again with VHB tape and the PI with duallock except the shoulder buttons, they sadly need a drop...

Re: smoki's GBZ

Yay, progress =D After waiting another hour at UPS and paying a stupid amount of tax on the package I finally got the most important parts. I tested out some layout options and figured when I remove the cartridge portion inside the case I would have more than enough room for everything without remov...

Re: smoki's GBZ

@DeltaShadow - Thanks, I saw that already, but decided to keep it as it is, maybe even rough it up even more for a more authentic look :) This first one is my trial one anyway. The next one will be one using the all-in-one board, a cleaned case, 640x480 display and a pi3. I already orderwd everythin...

It will be a setup with a kitsch 4 button board, pi zero, usb sound and powerboost for power/battery/charging. Part 1 - Display I filed the bo...

Re: Cleaner Screen Mount / Hello :)

Seems to hold perfectly well. I removed it once and I needed quite a lot of force in one corner, after that the rest came off easy.

Cleaner Screen Mount / Hello :)

Hello, like many I just started my GBZ :) I decided to not go by the guide and figure stuff out on the way. So the first thing to arrive was the screen (a cheap (15€) one from amazon, mentioned in the wiki). I don't have a dremel right now, but some key files and that worked great (the corner look e...
