I never had an issue with heating and I believe I played SF: Third Strike and Castlvania SoftN for a good two hour trip with no issues. It did warm up a bit, but not to the point where it shutdown. Not saying it couldn't happen eventually. But it never did for me at least.BlueWeaselBreath wrote: ↑Sat Jun 02, 2018 7:53 amThank you! So I reckon the battery charger you just mentioned is the charging board you listed in your materials list but noted that you didn’t end up using.
And I noticed that the best builds I’ve seen don’t use a heatsink. I know every millimeter of space is precious, but I have seen some relatively flat/short Pi heatsinks — did you never have problems with overheating on yours while you had it? I know when I play PSX games on my TV-connected Pi, if I don’t open the top of the case to allow ventilation, I get an Overhearing notification thermometer icon onscreen pretty quickly. I’d just hate to do all this work, then slag my Pi within 20 minutes of playing.
Want to show off your own project? Want to keep a build log of it? Post it here!

IrieMars, did you you purchase a mini-USB port connector (in addition to the regular USB-A connectors) to wire to the Teensy? I think you mentioned that but I missed that in the parts list.
No. I think the Teensy came with a micro usb to usb. What I did was strip it down to the bare wires. I kept the wires to the micro side in the factory male connector, on the other end that goes into the pie I cut the wires and landed them on the Pi where the USP ports were once.
