GigaCat’s Stupid Cardboard Box (3A+)

I could not sleep, so naturally I challenged myself to build a RetroPie system inside a tiny cardboard box from the closet, and do it in 4 hours. - A lil box. - Raspberry Pi 3 A+. - 3.2” SPI display from Pocket Adventures (w/ adapter from the same site), soldered onto the un...

Re: The GigaBox, Take 1 (My first GBZ)

The build is a whole, royal mess of melted plastic and super glue. Everything works, but it's ugly as hell. I owe Pocket Adventures a nice, clean build, so I'm going to rebuild with some changes: - All black. Black shell, black buttons, black analog stick, black wiring for all parts, black fingernai...

Re: New members, introduce yourself!

Hi! I'm a tinkerer by nature, so when this new-fangled (at the time) "Raspberry Pi 3" caught my glance, I couldn't help but indulge. I then went on to learn about the Game Boy Zero approximately a year ago, but never quite pulled the trigger until last month. Now that I have, the itch is far too rea...

Re: The GigaBox, Take 1 (My first GBZ)

What a journey: The Shell - Ordered a white shell originally, then switched to red (both from RetroModding). The red one's full of regret and disappointment (despite my crisp, precise first-time efforts in drilling extra button holes thanks to Pocket Adventures' screen bracket). I accidentally melte...

Re: Game Boy 3 A+

I don't know why I love that JST jungle so much, but I do. Nice work, man.

I ordered a 3A+ for just this purpose just this morning. Love my Zero W, but I found myself wanting more.

Edit: Just saw what you did there with the button board. Clever.

Re: The GigaBox, Take 1 (My first GBZ)

Currently in the experimental phase and fine-tuning the display. Looking at the model number on the ribbon, I got precisely this link: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1000005382096.html I opted to ditch Pocket Adventures' rpi-fbcp driver guide in favor of trying my hand at juj's fbcp-ili9341 driver....
