Extremely rad. Curiousity, where is the power switch? Any thought of changing the X/Y button placement?
The power switch is in the normal spot, on the right side.

I've tried multiple layouts, and every time I changed it, I got 50% bad feedback haha if you look at the earlier pictures, it was different than the most recent ones posted. I tried 3 different ways and settled on this one, which is similar to the gb pocket mods around here. It doesn't cut through the logo.

I see it now. I never noticed that the power switch was on a different spot on the color. I had the DMG brand new as a kid and by the time the color came out I was into roller hockey big time and that took up most of my life. Gotcha on the buttons. If it works, use it. Any plans for L/R buttons?

I had a DMG but the color was the first system that i was really into.

As of now, i havent been able to put too much time into shoulder buttons. I tested a few different options a while back but the main issues that pop up is 1) that back areas where it would go is curved, which makes it a little funky to work with 2) there are any screwposts near the location i'd like to put it. The closest one would create a stress point since it isnt centered. 3) the pi itself prevents me from created a pcb-mounted bracket which was my last option.

I'm still looking into it, but i didnt want it to hold up the whole project

what about something mounted on the battery cover? is there enough clearance there?

How is the board coming along? The collection could use a GBC in the mix.

Currently on a business trip in Tennessee so few things out on hold. I'm in the process of acquiring quotes for full assemblies, as I won't have the man power for good throughput doing things solo
