Re: Game Boy Color Zero (GBCZ) *With Build Guide Notes

How is it? the gameboy itself? it's ok. i prefer actually playing games on the DMG vs this, but i do like how small the whole thing is. for someone with small hands (which is not me), this would probably be ideal, but the DMG fits me better. i think for me this was more about the challenge of build...

Re: Powering a Otg hub

Is there a cheaper alternative to helder's psu. Thanks sure, but they aren't as well-engineered as his. cheaper ones are most likely going to have the same current limitations that you are experiencing (or may have other issues - cheap crap on aliexpress turns out a lot of times to just be crap and...

Re: Powering a Otg hub

(I want to replace the pi zero with the next version when it comes out, since the pi 4 just came out.) the zero and the normal pi development don't coincide. (ie, just because the 4 came out, don't expect a new zero - they've said in the past that cramming more onto that form factor just isn't feas...

Re: BMO GBZ Complete Build Guide

and for that final BMO touch, you can print up this stand that I designed. I did a combined one and put it in the bunch on Thingiverse , if you only can do one color, and just want to paint the BMO on the side. i had to fix a broken bracket on the printer, and finally had time to do it, so i haven't...

Re: I made a BMO !!! :D

Awesome cant wait, is the shell/ buttons custom painted or can you buy them in those colours? i got those from retromodding.com (they have an incredible selection of color options, and all their shells that i've gotten have been very good quality). i did start posting all the details over here : ht...

Re: BMO Build Guide

ok! now that should be it for the GBZ hardware, so onto the software. IMG_5857.jpg This was a bit of a challenge, for sure, but I think I finally got everything to a point where it's super easy to set up. The faces for the backgrounds in the theme and splash video were all originally found online, b...

Re: BMO Build Guide

my preference with these builds is usually to mount the rear buttons on the screen bracket, using soft-press tactile buttons, since that keeps nearly everything (except the Power Supply and battery) mounted to the front case, and minimizes the wires needed. i think the position just feels better her...

Re: BMO Build Guide

now that the screen area is cleared out, we can use the bracket and the hole guide to drill pilot holes, for the most accurate holes, finishing it will a step-up drill bit... I'm using a different hole guide in this picture, but using the snap-in one with the actual bracket you use will produce bett...
