Could use q 2.8 or 2.4, or the standard 3.5 composite / 3.2 spi and scale it down with overscan
Don't do I need some GPIO pins for the audio?

Yes, for pwm or i2s, don't see how that's related here.

I got my BW screen today... Didn't even look at the box before I opened the case. I don't think I will be able to use it on my upcoming gameboy zero build, since they sent me what looks like the 5" version. Does anyone have experience with this screen?

I got three of those today :evil: :evil: :evil:
So mad at Amazon. If you look at the label on the box it says 3.5” but the box itself lists sizes 3.5-5” super sucky situation.

Looking to wire up a screen like this one -
https://s.click.aliexpress.com/e/bRyCEHVQ

This is the same screen that is being used in the pocket Pi FE. I just want to use it without any aio board.

I guess I need a breakout or driver board?

Advice? Resources?

Everything I seem to find is referring to the ILI9341.

Thanks!
