First GBZ finally done!

Post by Benderthegreat » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:04 pm

My first gbz build is finally done and I can't thank this forum enough for the help!
everything works well but there is no safe shutdown or battery monitor :( and I was pretty unhappy with my dremel job on the shell so my second build will have safe shutdown, battery monitor and I'll use a 3d printed stencil for a better dremel job! (also is it possible yo use Arduino pro micro as a battery monitor?)
There's also a pop with the speaker when the device turns on but I can live with it.
Another note :
Chiz's guide did not work for me with USB audio (I'm on retropie 4.4)
in his guide he tells you to go to here

Code: Select all

pi@retropie:~ $ sudo nano /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf
and add the following lines

Code: Select all

options snd_usb_audio index=0
options snd_bcm2835 index=1
options snd slots=snd-usb-audio,snd-bcm2835
this did not work for me

What I had to do to get my usb audio working was to go here

Code: Select all

sudo nano /usr/share/alsa/alsa.conf
and replaced the following

Code: Select all

defaults.ctl.card 0 defaults.pcm.card 0
with

Code: Select all

defaults.ctl.card 1 defaults.pcm.card 1
and then I went to

Code: Select all

alsamixer
to adjust the volume and everything worked well
I hope you guys enjoy my first build :)

Now that's a good looking Gameboy! The Super Nintendo controller theme really came out well.

good job!

yes, you have to flash it with a script like hoolyhoo's gbz monitor - see here: viewtopic.php?t=3537 and his hub: https://github.com/HoolyHoo/gbzbatterymonitor
