Re: Aluminum Game Boy Zero Housings

If there's a divot in the back of the case for each button, one could drill a pilot hole from the back, then turn it around and use the step drill from the front.

Re: Circuit Sword Bluetooth

It looks like support has recently made it into the kernel. It looks like they ran into the UART speed issue in an earlier patch, too.

Re: Circuit Sword Bluetooth

I don't check in for a week, and all this happens :lol: Sorry for the confusion @AntFJ. As an old unix hack, I tend to run as root too much. @kite, the hardware mod looks good.

Re: Circuit Sword Bluetooth

I've actually managed to get this working! No guarantees that I've got it working the right way, though. First, add this to /boot/config.txt: force_turbo=1 enable_uart=1 dtoverlay=uart0,txd0_pin=32,rxd0_pin=33,pin_func=7 Next, go into raspi-config -> Interfacing Options -> Serial and disable the log...

Re: 3D Printed GameboyPi3

Nice work!

Looks like you printed the back shell upside down with support?
