I really like you guys being open and honest about problems in the supply chain. I have had a good experience about your support over here. But being too optimistic and not considering problems to date and possible other delays is another thing. I know you are trying to catch up from the other end and this is only about those boards. What i really would love is the timeline being updated on a go as you get more information about those shipments from MakerFabs. This would provide more information as a whole, rather than us whining the same thing here over and over. We are just anxious to get these in our hands as the promised date is in our hands.

One question about the build. Do you think i can squeeze a wireless kb dongle between rpi usb and the charging board?
I have a nano adapter and dongle. Got a fun idea what to do with the gameboy when it's done and don't want to do many changes to it as keeping it clean build.

Thanks
You will not manage to fit a usb dongle there as it is simply too tight, what I would suggest is soldering a female usb to the test pads on the rear of the pi before soldering the pi down and locating that somewhere in the case where it won't cause the shell to not fit well. Should work out fine this way.

Hope it works out well, let us know the result,
-Konnor

@galaxygaming @KonnorJ @Bluups

Can you tell us your order status at makerfabs?

You order maybe in the following status, the detail meaning is:
1. Pending: Your order is submitted to us but without checkout.
2. Confirmed: Your order is accepted by us and payment confirmed.
3. Payment failed: Your order submitted, but the payment failed. Order life-cycle stopped.
4. Processing: We are checking your orders.
5. Manufacturing: Your (PCBA) order is in manufacturing.
6. Waiting: Human interaction is needed for your order.
7. In Production: Your (PCB) order is in production.
8. Shipped: Your order is collected for assignment by the forwarder.
9. Traceable: Tracking information for your order is available.
10. Canceled: Your order is canceled.
see: https://makerfabs.com/index.php?route=i ... ation_id=8


Makerfabs says at its website: "It normally takes 10~30 days to arrive at your place"
see: https://makerfabs.com/index.php?route=i ... ation_id=9

Let us be optimistic and say makerfabs will send the kits to you in 2 weeks.

So an updated PRE ORDER TIMELINE would look like:
* 9th March: Kits sent from factory to Galaxy Gaming
* 19th March - 8th April: Delivery Zone: Factory Order Boards Arrive
* 29th March: Brexit
* 8th April - 21st April: Testing Zone: All boards are tested
* 22nd April - 28th April: Final Boss: Orders will be packed and will start shipping (Maybe additional payment from customers for higher shipping costs, because of Brexit)
* 29th April - 26th May: Delivery Zone: Full Kits Arrive (Maybe even longer depending on where you live, because of Brexit)

Does that sound like a realistic timeline to you? Or would you rather say shipment of the kits will start "soon"? Or should we "please check the dates on the product pages as everything is on there for" us?

As I am afraid to try to install Recalbox instead of Retropie :D , I reiterate my question on Retropie and USB hub :

Is Retropie manages 2 controllers via a port usb ? ;)
(This is when the GameBoy 0 Pocket Pi is connected to the TV and we want to play 2, without going through bluetooth controllers)

thanks :geek:

It seems interesting to me if it's
someone could have (or not) confirm the thing ? :?

And when you play, is it possible to turn off the console directly with the switch without having to go through the menus ? :?


And a console that would be ordered next week, how much time does it take for an availability? (Yes, I understand that it was quite long, without actually really understanding how long) :cry:

Thanx

It is possible to turn the console off by the switch and it will shutdown safely. For the controllers im not sure what you mean, your asking if its possible to connect two controllers? Maybe via bluetooth but not usb on the FE. This isnt specific to the FE so it will be heavily documented in the retropie forum. We will ahve some stock after all pre orders go out.

Cheers, Konnor

If I may ask, when is this going to happen?
The timeline on the website hasn't been updated for a while and last date here on the blog was said to be 24th February.

Will there be a new timeline?
