Gameboy Button dimensions?

Post by fsatatkid » Mon Sep 04, 2017 7:53 pm

Hey guys; just trying to verify some info. I'm looking for the exact diameter of the DMG 01 A and B buttons. I've searched over this forum and found some conflicting information; from 10.05 mm to 10.5mm to 10.8mm.

Just trying to figure out exactly how big I need to make my holes to add my X and Y buttons.

I only have a ruler at hand, so I cant measure .1mms, sorry. However, the holes need to be slightly larger anyways, and I think most people go with 11mm holes and it works out just fine! Are you using a Dremel or a Drill?
I used to be an adventurer like you, but then I took an arrow to the knee :-O

Downmix your GBZs sound to mono or you're missing half the fidelity:

That's actually the exact one I have! I was just trying to make sure if I went 11mm it would do the trick.
