Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Thanks again, AntFJ! I did indeed have in mind adapting his general idea to my hardware set-up using custom code. One of these days! Your help is greatly appreciated. :D

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

The resistors are why I thought I could run it the way I had it before. To be lazy and paste from my Page 1 description: “you want to be able to monitor how much life is left in your battery so it doesn’t die while you’re playing! If you use a 3.7V battery setup, there are a few possibilities for cr...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

AntFJ, thank you for clarifying that. Is this updated diagram what you meant? I have moved the ground wire too, just to keep things consistent. Image

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

LabreaReloc, thank you for checking in. I’ve been thinking about this project nonstop. You’d think that this would be the perfect time, right? And yet due to a number of logistical factors involving being furloughed from my main job and having to pick up a freelance gig, and having to constantly att...

Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

Djobbydjobba, so sorry for the delay -- I had notifications set to "On" but I don't think I was receiving them, so I didn't realize anyone had replied to me! Thank you for pointing out that the diagram was missing a ground wire! This was a complete oversight, and I can't remember what my headspace w...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Darksyder, you’re so kind to check in — I really appreciate it! I haven’t touched the project in awhile I’m afraid, because we bought a house and moved a couple months ago, and everything has been nuts since then trying to fix the house. But again you’ve spurred me to get back into it again. I would...

Re: WII U RASPBERRY PI 3 FINISHED

I was hoping y’all could take a look at my diagram and see if it looks ok or if anything is out of place. Thanks so much! https://i.imgur.com/T7RbChx.png EDIT 5/4/20: djobbydjobba kindly pointed out the diagram was previously missing the ground wire to the Pi pin 6! I have replaced the original diag...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Hey, Kopskey, I haven’t gotten to that point yet, but I wasn’t planning to retain the home panel, because I figured the connector was proprietary or something. I wish I could! But I was just going to try to hook up one or two of the buttons independently with switches and make do with that. If you l...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

A great question! I have added the following info to the main parts list. I’m afraid I need a lot of help describing the general specs people should be looking for. Anyone who is good with this, please help me explain it better! EDIT: My sense is that anywhere between 4 and 10 mH is good for the cho...

Re: Noob Tries to Make a Pii U (Wii U Retropie Gamepad)

Please see my first draft of the wiring diagram below. Before I finalize it and add it to the instructions, I wanted to let the community take a peek and see if everything looked okay. Let me know if anything’s out of place — thanks! https://i.imgur.com/T7RbChx.png UPDATE: The ground wire to the Pi ...
