Re: [WIP] Salami's 1st GBZ HDMI I2C Shift-Button Brightness Control

I uploaded an image for you: https://preview.ibb.co/cVnH7m/audio_wiring.jpg . The important part is not to use the ampifier for the headphones, and you dont need that, because the display can drive headphones. The amplifier is only needed for the loudspeaker. And because the loudspeaker needs mono,...

Re: On-Screen Battery Monitor Options

You could use this: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/10617 It has a very similar IC to what I've been using on my SP AIO boards. It has an I2C interface, so in theory all you would need to do is change the I2C address, and change the register read in the script and it should work. It measures the v...

Re: GBA-SPi Zero - Zelda Edition

Oh my that is sweet! Really loving the Zelda case. Any shots of the internals, wiring, etc? Would love to see how you laid everything out. Congrats on a really top draw build! I really like this! Any chance you show us the internals? I updated the original post with pictures of what's inside. It's ...

Re: Composite vs DPI

I dont have that grey SP anymore but what I originally did to fit a composite screen in there was, I 3D printed a bracket to increase the depth slightly and carefully cut out the hinge and glue it to the new back cover with the bracket. If you look in this pic the back plate is slightly thicker, pr...

Re: Composite vs DPI

I wonder if you could stash the zero and the dpi adapter in behind the screen. Then have a separate board in the bottom half of the SP for power and buttons. This would certainly leave more room for battery! Getting at the USB connector and SD card slot on the zero would be tricky. Or just run USB ...

Re: Matt's Pocket Build - WIP - Will take me a while

The lipo charging/sharing works a treat but.... I've made some daft mistakes. My power lines are crossed and I had a via in slightly the wrong place, shorting my 3v3 line, that took me hours to work out. To resolve this, I've done a bit of hot wiring and this will be followed by lots more testing b...

Re: 3.2" SPI LCD (working and ready for a build)

now its showing around 30fps (both times) .... but the games dont seem that slow (if at all) and i am aware alot of 16bit or lower games dont actually need 60fps to run smoothly even though its not 60fps (which wasnt expected).... to my novice eyes this still seems very viable (maybe not ideal) it ...
