Re: Safe Shutdown Schematic, Help!

You need a mosfet with logic level gate. :) Something like a IRF510 or IRF520.

Re: Retro pie image wont boot??

Do you have any activity on the ACT LED on the Pi Zero? Are you using a composite screen or HDMI screen?

Re: Mushy buttons and input lag

Clean the contact pads on the pcb board. If the issue persists then try another silicon pads like VeteranGamer has mentioned. Also make sure the screws are not too tight.
