you still have to grind the screw post down.... but they fit snug around the screw post andthe tactile fits snug in the square
Very nice!

thanks....

the theme is the es theme gbz35 dark

personally i think its currently the best theme if your going to use a backup camera type screen

i am working on a theme of my own (but it requires some work... mainly on the svg files)

as requested by @oliddell


heres the led solder points for the generic/banggood psu


Image


i personally didnt use resistors, as the board is power by the 3.7v lipo and the leds i used were around that....

with that being said, i may put a resistor on my blue led (power/load) as its a little brighter than the others and for me it doesnt look quite right (doesnt have that factory feel, one led brighter then the other.... a personal thing)

Image


but you can get away without adding resistors

also you can put what ever colour leds you want, i just copied the colours the psu already went with....

also you can get away with just adding a led to the charging point, as once charged that led will just turn off (letting you konw its charged)

appreciated thanks a lot.

Had to edit to comment on your build...damn mate that is a piece of art right there, we got the same shell :) you have also helped me on how to position the internals. Im guessing you 3d printed those pins which hold the pi in place?

Great build! Could you post a link to the 3d holder for the Banggood powerboost you used and would it be possible to share the 3d files used for you tactile switches?

What kind of a DC jack is that? Same plig size as the original?

I can't make out how its connected inside.

its the same size as the original gameboy socket (giving you that factory look and saves you butchering the case to accomodate a usb socket), so if you've used an original dmg (thats broken) you can use the same....


if your starting a fresh, then this is the seller i got it from

i've tried to find the link on thingverse for you (its where i got it from)... but couldn't remember how i stumbled over it (credit goes to the original uploader on thingverse)

i printed it in abs instead of pla, the reason for this was to avoid any distortion that may be caused by heat from the powerboost (the powerboost may not get that hot/warm, but just as a precaution)

Lining the part with kapton tape also works. ;)
