First CS Build

Post by filuwego » Sun Sep 26, 2021 5:04 am

Hello, I just finish my first CS (CM3) build and have a couple of questions. I have her working fine up to the point where I have kites IMG working. 1st question is on the dpad seems like it has a lot of play in it, I'm using retro modders silicone buttons. Is there a way to make it feel better when it's pressed. 2nd what type of led's to use for the status lights or is everyone just drilling the holes and use the leds already installed on board. Thanks for the info

I want to say historically the dpads we're like that even on factory Gameboys. That's my recollection at least from when I was a kid.

I just opted not to drill holes for the LEDs at all. I didn't see the need for them. I'm using a Retromodding case and I can see the blue when I plug in even though my case is opaque. I also have the on screen battery display so I don't feel like I'm missing anything. Can always drill later if I change my mind I guess.

Not sure if any of that was helpful. :)
