Re: HoolyHoo's GBZ with Kite's SAIO

hii,

so I bought the same battery as you but it doesn't quite fit inside the compartment (the battery's ever so slightly too big) so I was wondering if you cut the side of the compartment or something to get it in?

battery connector help

hey, so i saw how the battery was done in this post http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=2729 and i thought it was pretty edgy so i ordered similar parts; now they've arrived and i'm thinking ahead a bit; I'm not quite sure which way round i would have to put the connector (gold side up ...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

If the gameboy zero project is too expensive you could just get a pi3 and a ps3 controller or something and just set up an emulation station for your tv. This would only require the pi, an sd card and a power supply. This would give you a chance to get familiar with the raspberry pi and retropie, w...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

I would just buy a bare pi zero w and get an sd card elsewhere. Most of the items in the mega and essential kits you wont need. You can also get HDMI cables, usb cables and power adapters for pretty cheap on amazon/ebay, or maybe you have some local shops as well. If you have a non iPhone you will ...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

Okay first, taking a step back: computers. (since you asked elsewhere) There are a bunch of option with pluses and minuses to each, but I'll make it simple: use a Pi0W. It has the smaller form factor of the Pi0 (which makes it easier to fit inside a gameboy shell... and *possible* to fit in an alto...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

I feel your pain. I started a project using the 10$ button PCB. This kind of build is definitely not as easy as compared to the AIO or helder PCB. And you will have to make several choices: - Connect to GPIO pins on pi zero or not. If not, you'll need a Teensy LC or comparable microcontroller. - Do...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

so if i got all the parts on the list apart from the aio I could just use one of those button pcb's instead No. That build uses Helder's AIO, so you would need additional components (Teensy, USB hub, audio amp/circuit). Rodocop 's suggestion would be more in line with following Wermy's first guide:...

Re: What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

Buy one of these button pcb' s. It's your best bet if you want something cheap. There are lots on eBay, find the cheapest one: Look at this on eBay http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/112343742350 Also, you can pre order one of kites super aio boards now. It may be expensive. But if you look at buying all t...

What do I need if I can't get an aio pcb?

Long story short I have literally no idea where to start and I don't really understand many things that I've read but from what I can gather, I won't be able to get my hands on any of the fancy boards any time soon or cheaply, so I was wondering what exactly I need as an alternative? I want to make ...
