Re: Full VGA resolution (640x480) 3.5" display, composite in

My 640x480 screen just arrived tonight and I got the 5V version! It runs great and looks fantastic. Having four times the pixels as my 320 x 240 screen makes a HUGE difference. I got the one @cannikin suggested from ebay http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-5-LCD-key-Press-VGA-VA-Controller-Drive-Board-PD035V...

Re: Full VGA resolution (640x480) 3.5" display, composite in

So what you're saying here is that if i hook up the screen the the pi0, it might have issues supplying power to all the components but if it's off the powerboost directly it will all be fine? Which pins do i use on the powerboost and pi0 to hook them together? 5V pin on screen board -> 5V pin on po...

I used this stuff which basically melts the plastics together: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00FDFWJD8 The only pressure that's applied to the styrene is when the button moves back UP, which is just the pressure of the silicone pushing back o...

Re: GBZ or a Child's Rattler?

Those that used the SNES controller and buttons, did that solve the problem? Do you have much wiggle/wobble? So I replaced all my buttons with the ones from a Buffalo USB SNES controller .

Ganreizu Also, the guy in your avatar, Kappa, I used to work with him at a previous job! He used to work at Twitch (I worked with him later) and he put himself into the chat room along with the rest of the devs, but his ended up being the most popular one.
