I am new to the forums and well I thought since its my first build I would share it with the rest of you and the people who might google this in the future. I've never done a raspberry pi project before, heck i've never worked with micro-controllers extensively either so all this is very new to me. But I saw some videos of Game Boys online and the nostalgia came over me so I decided to build one myself. Originally I was gonna go for the PocketPi FE but it was sold out so I decided that I will try to do it myself and learn something in the process.
Now onto the project, today is the first time I use Fritzing(for the wiring) so if something is weird or bad I can totally understand that and if you got any pointers that would be welcome! I browsed the forums quite a bit for parts and wiring but I mostly checked out Veteran's third build (quite amazing as a resource).
Here is the Fritzing image (I can upload the file if anyone wants it):
-Raspberry Pi Zero W
-Powerboost 1000 Basic https://www.adafruit.com/product/2030
-USB LiIon/LiPoly charger - v1.2 https://www.adafruit.com/product/259
-Adafruit Mono 2.5W Class D Audio Amplifier - PAM8302 https://www.adafruit.com/product/2130
-Microcontroller ATMEGA328P Pro Mini 5V compatible https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11113
-Shutdown switch with a rocker https://mausberry-circuits.myshopify.co ... ith-rocker
-SPI TFT LCD ILI9341 https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1pcs-J3 ... 4c4di4PLsW
-Gameboy pocket button pcb https://github.com/DerNuntius/Gameboy-Z ... Button-PCB
-LiPo 3.7V 2400mAh Battery
-8 Ohm Speaker
-Thumbwheel potentiometer 10kohm
-Powerstrip by Helder from OSH
-Gameboy pocket Case from Aliexpress
-Some 3D printed button brackets
This is what i'm starting out with, maybe some parts could be better such as having a 1000 C instead of a 1000 Basic + Charger. But this mostly has to do with me wanting to get parts asap and from my location these alternatives were available. The reason for the Mausberry shutdown switch is because i have one from my old 2012 raspberry pi that I don't use and I might as well use it if it works. I will probably order more parts as I need them.
Things I need to do:
-Program the Atmega328p and then solder it to the raspberry pi when it works.
-Get the shutdown button working and testfit then solder.
-Connect the screen to the RPi and make sure its running as it should then solder.
-Get the audio working(volume rocker included) and enable Bluetooth audio as well.
Wishes after the basics are done and I have time:
-Get all the Battery stats to the RPi screen or leds.
-Rear buttons/Joystick if i find it comfortable and it looks good.
-Order custom Screen surround.
-Screen brightness potentiometer
Hopefully everything fits and if you have any tips or if I've missed anything I could use all the help I can get.
