Firstly, this forum is ah-maz-ing... my name is Mike, been lurking about 2 weeks...registered a few days ago. Been trying to teach myself about electronics and pi based toys for a few weeks now. Was inspired when I stumbled across wermy's youtube vid on his gbz build. I'm looking at doing a game gear pi3 for my first "real" project. Looking forward to pestering all the guys who have way more knowledge about all of this than me :lol:

Hi all! My name's Rik and I've found this site after watching all of wermy's vids on YouTube. I've always loved electronics, but haven't every really had the time to get immersed in it. My one and only big project was about 6 years ago, when I attempted to build an Atari 2600 portable using the guides on Ben Heck's forum. Being in the UK this was difficult as the inside of a UK 2600 is nothing like the US one! But I persevered and got it all working. But after I got it working, I never got round to making a case for it. And it went in a shoebox where it lies to this day!

I'm shocked to see how far the modding community has come since then! Recharge circuits, custom pcb's, the raspberry pi zero! Really looking forward to making something worthwhile!

I'm John. I have been sneaking around on here a little bit for the last few months. Really like what this is all about. Got started on my build two weeks ago but tend to run out of time pretty quick. Working two jobs can do that sometimes.
Glad to be apart of the forum and I am looking forward to having some fun with all kinds of projects.

Hello, my real name is Álvaro and I am from Spain.

I joined this community recently but I have been reading the forums and following the GBZ project since Wermy's uploaded the first tutorials on YouTube.

At first this looked like an impossible project to do by myself. I am not a tech savvy and my Majors are specifically in Business, Management, Economics and languages, this last one as a hobby, so as you can see I know little to nothing about soldering, electronics in general, Raspberries, etc.

However, thanks to this awesome community and people like Wermy, Helder or Kite, and other helpful people this have been greatly simplified and with some training I think it can be accomplished by almost everyone with time and patience.

Been collecting parts to build my first GBZ and waiting for Kite's new batch to finally start working on this during summer. I'm glad I found such an cool community, respectful and helpful, hence I expect to be around learning new things and helping others to give back all that it is been offered here for free.

Greeting from Spain :D

Hello sudomod forum,

My name is Jenta and I have been a long time lurker. I am a Mechanical Engineering student and I will graduate this fall with a BSME. I have had a decade of experience soldering and a little bit longer than that in tinkering.

Back in 2014 I attempted to make a RetroPie Portable with a Raspberry Pi 1 A. I frakencasted the extra buttons in and made a complete mess of the board during the stripping it. Some how I managed to get it working, the screen burned out 4 weeks later. After surfing the web and finding Wermy's first guide set in late 2016 I was spurred to make a GameBoy Zero to great success, the only problem with it was you could connect only one extra USB after the teensy.

My next project is a GameBoy Pi 3 with a single analog stick and four shoulder buttons. Hopefully I will keep track of the build log so I can share it with this community.

Hi, I'm Will.
I started learning about circuits and stuff literally 2 weeks ago, and got super invested in my raspberry pi. Then I saw Wermy's GBZ and had my mind blown.
I have yet to solder once in my life, and I am mainly just a kid in middle school that likes technology. It's so cool to see so many people here that are so invested in electronics!

Hi everyone! I'm Antonio and I've been learning about console appearance modding for few weeks (still learning though, I haven't done anything to my PS4 XD). And so I was thinking it will be better to be more active in learning about this electronic and modding matter. I hope to learn and share experience with you guys.

Hello everyone, greetings from France !

First of all, thanks to everyone who is contributing to this great forum !

I came here with no luck but good luck as i was looking for other raspberry related stuffs.

I was about to start the build of an arcade cabinet but i was lacking money for all the features i wanted to implement and i found sudomod :shock:

So i felt to start a smaller project in order to wait until i can build a bigger one.

I am a retro enthousiast as i was almost born with video games... my first one was Game Watch Donkey Kong dual screen :D

I'm forty and happy to be among you.

Thanks again for everyone's great job !

Hi Guys,

When I saw the video from Wermy in my recommendations list on Youtube I was hooked! Shortly after seeing the video and some others I stumbled upon this forum, which has been great so far!

From my education I have a background in working with both software and hardware but have been focussed more on the software side for the last few years. I was looking for a project where I could work with Raspberry Pi / Arduino again and therefore building a Game Boy Zero is a great project.

I know there are a lot of great all-in-one boards available but since I actually want to work with electronics again (and I don't really mind the project taking a bit longer) I am planning on building as much myself as I can and would love to share things I discover along the way.

It is always great to stumble across such active forums, thanks!

Currently figuring out how to build my first Game Boy Zero. 8-)
