Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - OPEN

is the 640x480 screen hands down better than the 320x240 screen in every way, or are there some things the 320 screen does better like color, brightness, response time...?

Re: anyone ever try installing backbuttons in the battery door?

thanks, but what I have in mind is a bit different. I'm gonna try to affix one of these https://store.kitsch-bent.com/product/easy_buttons with some teeny tiny plastic screw posts and use a gba start/select or maybe seperate a regular gameboy start/select and orient them horizontally. I need to get ...

anyone ever try installing backbuttons in the battery door?
