Re: Help With Game Gear Pi Mod

the GG board is 9v i think, so i believe that you will need to step it down to 5v to work with the pi. not sure if there'll be enough current to run everything, but it's possible

Re: First GBZ Build - Pocket Adventures Parts

If someone could tell me if I'm on the right track, I'd appreciate it. Sorry about the goofy colors on the pictures, it stood out on my phone, but my not look as good posted here. yep - looks like you are doing it right. you don't need the 5v power to the button board (theres nothing powered on the...
