Re: I've been calling it Pi-tendo Switch (7in 3d printed Pi handheld)

Looks awesome, please do a full writeup as soon as you can, I'd love to see inside. Maybe I (or someone else) will spot something to help out with the audio issue. Also, care to share the step files? Sure no problem. I'll attach step files. I designed it in inventor, so if by chance you're using th...

I've been calling it Pi-tendo Switch (7in 3d printed Pi handheld)

So on impulse I had bought the generic 7in HDMI screen that's been selling under plenty of names (I have the 800x480 version, but afterwards I wish I would have gotten the 1024x600 version). The screen is actually pretty good after building a Game boy zero with a composite back up screen, but I coul...

Re: Raspberry Audio Board

Although I agree it can't really beat the AIO boards as far as gameboy zero projects go, this is great for other custom tablet-style projects. Those are just harder to accomplish and not as popular as the game boy zero is.

Re: BW Version 9 Help With Pi 3

If 12v doesn't work, sounds like the problem is your config file. You also have to power up the pi with no HDMI connected at powerup(this stumped me longer then I care to admit) or it wont output composite video signal. The screen wont even turn on the backlight unless its recieving signal. Personal...

Re: N64 Joystick

Sure, should be simple if it is an analog stick, it simply reads as two potentiometers. There are some sketches on the wiki that allow analog sticks, or you can send me your code and I'll give it a shot at adding an analog stick input to it. I think the reason they havent been common in builds is be...

Re: joystick with gpio?

Nope, you need something that can read analog inputs from the joystick. Pi only has digital inputs. If you're looking for a cheaper option, look into the pro micro on the Wiki

Re: Arduino vs teensy for keyboard emulation

What software are you running on your Leonardo fox? I found a script for buttons only worked fine with my pro micro, but a script that included joysticks I was using previously was problematic when it came to response time. Perhaps another script might give better results, or debounce is set way too...

Re: 3.5 inch HDMI Display - high energy usage

I can tell you running the rPI zero with a composite BW screen draws 230mA sitting on the desktop, no real processor load. Backlight is whatever was set at the factory, which is fairly bright. My 7in HDMI touchscreen (Waveshare clone) draws 480-490 mA (not including Pi) and that thing has a non adju...
