For power wires, use 24 gauge wire or larger. 24 gauge is rated for 2.1A.

What MAME romset are you using?

I'm having a little trouble with my MAME setup. Some games boot while others don't. I think some of my romsets are being ran on some incompatible emulators. Note: I'm using Kite's v1 board with a pi zero. (There is no issue with Kite's board. It's awesome. Just stating my GBZ specs) My Question: Tho...

Re: Custom Orange-Pi Portable

Just thinking about the positioning of the left joystick and D-pad. What systems do you plan on playing mostly? Most retrogames only support the D-pad. Even for the PS1, there are just a few games that use the joysticks. I would put what you think would be used more in the top circular area of the l...
