A SwanCrystal is out of the picture
Hard to find a donor? Or housing and/or screen size not as convenient?
They're all over $100USD, but a regular wonderswan is $10 or so marked as JUNK.

Re: SwanBerry Pi

Really cool project. Dug up some discussion on Wonderswan buttons here: https://www.element14.com/community/thread/57354/l/wonderswan-color-buttons?displayFullThread=true That's an awesome bit of info! I actually grabbed another lot of junk WonderSwans to redo this project in a better way. I used s...

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

im not sure how much better they are. It seems that most Chinese sellers dont know what IPS is, and sell them as the 'wide angle' screens. It could also be that they are just selling normal screens as 'wide angle' just to make more money!! The crux of it all, is that they are really designed for po...

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

I got a system thrown together, and did a side-by-side of the composite vs SPI for giggles here . personally i prefer the look of the SPI screens..... the only downside to them is....

Re: On-Screen Battery Monitor Options

I've been seeing a couple of people having issues where the battery icon disappears randomly, and it's happened to me a few times as well. Not sure if it's a specific change that I've made to something in the OS or what, but I just reflashed the base image that I made and it was back no issues. I ju...

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

Made this quick video here showcasing the differences. The SPI system is running a slightly different ROM and I think my SD image is searching for USB audio, so it's slightly slower and less fluid. I'm using MoosePr's optimized config from his YouTube video as well. I like the screens! I need to get...

Re: [Guide] ili9341 SPI TFT Screen on Retropie

I'll give it a shot when I get home, thanks!

I have another batch of screens coming in today or tomorrow as well, so I can try my luck some more.
