Re: PiBoy DMG by ExperimentalPi

This is a picture of the board. The battery plugs into the black plug and the Atmel microcontroller is supposedly for the gamepad. Another thing I noticed is that it uses PWM audio. In my opinion one can hear that the audio sounds less clean than from USB audio.

Re: PiBoy DMG by ExperimentalPi

I got my Pi Boy DMG unit and wanted to post my thoughts here: The good: Performance (with a Pi4) is excellent as expected The 640x480 screen is very nice. It's feasible to use nice looking shaders for Gameboy or CRT. Build quality is decent The bad: The thing is heavy. It's heavier (with a Pi4) than...

mintyPi v4.0 with DPI screen?

Re: PiBoy DMG by ExperimentalPi

I am wondering how much the battery life will suffer with a Pi 4 and 4500 mAh battery.

Hi guys, I wanted to know if anyone has thoughts about the PiBoy DMG by ExperimentalPi ? The 640x480 screen and option to use Raspberry Pi 4 are really tempting.

Re: PICO 8 audio speed

Did something change with the way sound is done with raspbian stretch (or the latest circuit-sword image)? For some reason the fix above doesn't work anymore and breaks sound everywhere.

Re: Clear Blue Kite's Circuit Sword

How is the feeling of the back buttons? I assume they are just DMG start and select buttons with Kites back buttons PCB?

Re: PICO 8 audio speed

BTW, I just wanted to put this excellent guide here for adding PICO 8 to emulationstation: https://www.lexaloffle.com/bbs/?tid=3935
