I did as you said and it registers the x axis as well as the y axis in the serial monitor. I filled in the numbers i got from there and the stuttering is much less now. But when I test it in windows the cross in the test still won't go to the upper left and lower right corner.. I switched the the wires of the analog stick with A1 and A0 but that didn't help. I know I wired it right because when I control my mouse in windows with it, it works fine. So maybe it's a windows thing, I will try and test it when my housing is finished.

I'm building this if you're interested:

Hello, awesome project !! A day, i found the post where was the 3D design build. Is it you the designer or an other guy ?

If yes, can you share me the URL to see the post :D

so i built a very similar build and I'm sorry if i am missing some info that solves this problem.

The build i did is functioning fine, but the little lighting bolt in the corner wont go away. I'm not sure why it is not recieving enough voltage, but the problem has persisted on multiple retropie builds on different sd cards so i know its not the data.

Everything runs fine, i just cant help but wonder if the performance could be better if more power were to be supplied.

I don't want to get off topic on @sotasystems project. I have taken a lot of inspiration from his/her build.
I think everyone had an interest in this @Tok_tok

First off all this is the wrong threat to post this. But also next time check sudo`s wiki. Here are the links.

Do some searching around my friend. I have been guilty of asking before I look hard for the answer but it is most definitely out there.
Good luck!

Since I got loads of private messages on this, if you are planning on using a Leonardo Pro Micro for your gameboy build with PSP 1000 analog sticks, feel free to also check out this guide: http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=1766

For the love of god, how did you desolder the Pi3 that well? I fried mine attempting that.

Anyone know how he split the composite signal? I've looked around online and found a purpose built chip for this http://www.linear.com/product/LT6206 but that seems rather complex?

Hi, Can you please show a a wire diagram of thepower system that shows the power boost tiny chip, arduino chip that does low battery shutdown or the general power system? Like a quick sketch/hand drawn would be so helpful even. I think your power management set up is very smart

Can you elaborate on How your on off mechanism work... Like When pressing the power push button, the pi does a safe shutdown but does your powerboost also shuts down too? Or the powerboost stays on because of that voltage divider 470k and 100k set up which keeps it on but not drain the battery that much??

Thanks
