Re: LTB Gameboy Zero/Circuit Sword Stickers

Hey, guys. I am building a Circuit Sword, and I am looking for stickers for the case and the cartridge. I know Yaya (is that his name) used to sell them but he's AWOL, so I don't know where to get some now. Any help would be appreciated. I do have a few spares, click here to see them in one of the ...

Re: Possible Adafruit screen issue

I've never used an Adafruit screen before but the first two things I'd check would be one the ribbon remains securely seated and two use a Multimeter to verify you're getting 5v to the screen board. The plastic bar breaking shouldn't be a big deal, I've had them pop off before but still snap back in...

Re: My finished Gaboze Pocaio Round 2

It would give me a worth while reason to get a hit air rework station. My one regret when I ordered the boards was not getting a stencil. At the time though, I didn't have a hot air station, only a cruddy soldering iron. Since then I bought a 898D station that Wermy recommended in his video and man...

Re: My finished Gaboze Pocaio Round 2

The SMDs weren't to bad about $20 shipped from Digikey, screen was about $15, battery was about $10. It does add up pretty quick though with everything and mainly you are playing the waiting game for all of the parts. I've got a few other projects to work on but I do think I'd like to try populatin...

Re: My finished Gaboze Pocaio Round 2

I remember the original populated board was $60 plus case, buttons etc. I dont think those are available anymore but there are blank round one and round two boards available on ebay so one could do the populating themselves. I have no idea what the individual parts cost though.

Re: PocketPi FE Pre Pre-Order Preparation

My 3 boys have CS-lite builds running off of 3500mah batteries that fit nicely in the full size DMG battery compartment, they easy get 6+ hours of play time, I tend to recharge theirs more frequently as they are younger and less apt to pay attention to a shrinking green bar. It isnt an exact compari...
