Re: [For Sale] PRS-Tech SNES-Zero. Complete retro gaming in a SNES Controller

Hey all: if you were previously unable to get the Kayo mini HDMI to HDMI cable for this project o Amazon or anywhere else in 10', I just noticed it's back up.

In the process of building mine, was wondering what you used to cut the pin header?
I ended up just using wire cutters and slowly worked my way from one end to the other.

Anyone able to add the soft shutdown/startup option as listed in http://pie.8bitjunkie.net/retropie-shutdown-and-startup-switch-the-easy-way, but with the added variable of a timer so that a button would have to be held down for a set period of time before activating the shutdown/startup?

Re: How to - Use the GPIO for Buttons instead of a Teensy

Re: How To - Build the PRS-Tech SNES-Zero

Re: mintyPi 2.0

....I love everything about this.

You mentioned using DS parts for the buttons; is it possible to use SNES controller parts as well, or are they too large to fit in there?

Can't wait to build one!
