Thanks!

Second screen arrived today. I deliberately bought one that didn't have buttons on the back hoping that it would have a small PCB. Opened the box to find it does have buttons on the back.

Don't remember which was first, but I remember Mario Bros on NES, Flappy (NOT flappy bird) on some old computer and River Raid and Pitfall on Atari.

Re: First Build Part Help

You will also need a battery, charger (PowerBoost 1000C or the banggood one), power switch, wires, speaker, headphone socket (if using), stereo or mono amplifier and probably more that I have forgotten.

Re: Collecting information on alternative displays - please contribute

I had the same board in my LCD.

The second one you posted looks perfect Rewired44. Didn't find that in my searching. Ill grab one of them if my second one doesn't work either.
