Re: Starting mintypi project

If you don't have the v2 parts then you will have to wait for the v3 which will be out soon and you don't really need much parts so best to save your money for that once a parts list is released.

Re: ABH's BurgerKing Gameboy toy 6 Buttons

Only issue I see is that if the buttons are pressed hard will it move the pcb inward from the pressure on the shell holding it in place? The one I plan use will have the pegs in the center and corners hold the pcb firmly in place using some 3D plastic shims. If yours is not going to move at all even...

Re: ABH's BurgerKing Gameboy toy 6 Buttons

I'll release them on my Github once they prove to work well. So you can always modify it yourself to your liking but don't let me stop you from trying your hand at this.

Re: ABH's BurgerKing Gameboy toy 6 Buttons

Nice work! seeing those X and Y buttons on the sides gave me an idea you could have done to not have them glued in, something the new mintyPi v3 is using. I might have to give it a go this weekend about making a similar board like yours. Did you do any kind of safe shutdown?

Re: V3 email notification

I'm not sure how to go about doing an email notification system, if someone knows a simple way to do it I'm all ears.

Re: Are there any PCB Boards / Displays Available for Purchase??

Why do college students always want to do this project? If you're an EE student it shouldn't be too hard to make something similar as there are plenty of info here on the forums and the internet on how to use Retrogame and how to hook up a SPI LCD to a Pi. I must have heard this same student story a...

Re: GBC AIO

Don't forget to rotate that display in software. The 2.6 is the perfect fit for the GBC, in time Bluups driver will be available for use just credit where it's due and I'm sure everyone will be content. 32teeth has his schematics freely available for this screen, so a good place to start.

Re: [SALE] Retro PSU, a 3.5A Output capable Boost Board

This was intended for one battery, if you do connect more than 1 battery and something is damaged in the process that is on you and I will not replace damaged goods caused by improper use of the PSU. On a note to this question what battery boost board has ever taken more than 1 input? If you can't t...
