Oh hahaha that's ok what's done is done. It's not really something so urgent that I can't wait for it. If there's one thing made stronger by working on something like this since may it's patience. (though with how many people you deal with for these boards it would absolutely shatter mine...)

I re-program the board again this time with the new code and it works with the "no analog" code.

With the analog code it does not work, same problem as described, i.e. when choosing a game it would go straight to the runcommand config screen.

Not that big a deal as I found out that I need keyboard connected if I want to run Computer emulators, eg. Atari ST, Atari 8 bit, ZX Spectrum, etc....

So the only roms on my Gameboy Zero are most of the handhelds, and arcade games.

So i bought this programmer: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0897792012

When i go to detect the board it gives me this

Code: Select all

Unable to detect MCU

avrdude.exe: error: could not find USB device with vid=0x16c0 pid=0x5dc vendor='www.fischl.de' product='USBasp'

avrdude.exe done.  Thank you.
Any idea what's up? Do i need power to the AIO or is it a driver issue?

Link is broken, are you trying this on a windows 10 machine? These devices have driver issues on Windows 10. Also have you tried flipping the isp ribbon connector ? You should hit detect once you have the made contact and it'll detect the proper MCU if everything is correct.

Figures the link would break. Try this share version: http://r.ebay.com/uWqxa2

I'm using win7 which seems fairly ideal as far as drivers go but it's still a mess.

I didn't try flipping the ribbon cable since it says hooking the wrong pins can damage the board. I was pretty confident I got the right pins given the pinout (which is here, probably should have linked that to begin with). I assumed that the little block on the image corresponds with the little block on the connector.

I got libusb0.dll into the avrdudeess folder, and i tried a couple of driver solutions. (i'll specify with an edit later, not at my home computer atm)

Can we use Sota's sketch on this AIO board?

@helder: Got it to work! Used the zadig method (here), which i used before but didn't work somehow, on a separate win 7 computer and flashed all 3 boards in one shot. :D

@Helder So Im having issues with the AVRDUDESS program. I have verified that my USBASP driver is installed but it will not detect the All in one Board. I checked my setting and compared it to what you have and it is all the same but when I click Detect it will say "unable to detect MCU". I have tried multiple computer and USB ports with the same result... Any idea? I have also tried most of the fixes posted on
