Pirate's Orangepi GBZ COMPLETED!!

Post by Pirate » Sun Jul 02, 2017 5:09 am

Hello everyone I wanted to post this once I had the unit working 100% now all I need is to wire the back shell and I should be done soon.

Edit: My OpiGBZ is finally done

I am happy to know that I can now play some psx games on the go. Something that I wasn't able to do on the good old RPZ

some issues that I ran while finishing is that I wont be using JST cables for certain things because those connectors really took a lot of real estate and closing the device was a stuggle. :D


Thank you everyone for looking I hope I get to inspire some of you and maybe consider using a Orange pi on your next build.

Cheers!

I've tested some roms and so far I love it. PSX games play flawlessly I really can't wait until I finish it

Now the my OpiGBZ is done I wish I had room to put in a fan because those H3 chips get really hot.

How does it run N64? I see you said it runs PSX with no issues. I've been peeping the OPi0 for awhile. Thanks!

Whenever I ran super Mario 64 I had no lag issue but I couldn't test it any further because my build doesn't have a analog stick.
