there's no stopping!
just gotta fit around kids and wife and all my other projects. but this is taking priority of all my projects.

I hope you got the right gba slot... the one my PCB takes is the one from NDS Lite. (as in the ones I desolder and have for sale...)
I'll probably do a footprint for the other ones as well once it's actually working properly though...

not sure what kind i got, i guess the classic GBA ones if i recall correctly but that should not be the problem i can saw how much it would be possible and 3dprint/glue what is missing as long as the connectors part is fine:)

the difference is in the PCB pin arrangement. on the NDS/DSL it's surface mount. GBA is through hole. Look closely at this pic:

I'm going to maybe make a Through hole version eventually but it's REALLY low on my priority list

Instead of focusing on a through hole version, you should first focus on getting a good camera with better focusing capacities :lol: :lol: :lol:

(just kidding, please do not take it wrong, i like joking and tackling) lol :D

What about a I2C / Gpio expander for DPI aswell, (i wanted it too for pi2vga in combination with a safeshutdown)
Hope that DMG1 stuff i've sent you was usefull.
Thank you, Greets.

@abrugsh SPI needs 6 pins in its minimal form, 2xpower and MOSI,D/C,CLK,reset. SPI does not use up the i2c pins.

If you need the GPIO for communication then SPI or composite are your only choices.
