Re: [Circuit Gem] No sound output.

Since I feel these are several issues now: could this be a "problem" from the board amplifier? Maybe during switch on the power there is this well known "plop" impulse from the amp going to the speaker and since this speaker is really tiny his coil could burn? This is just a feeling!

Keep in mind that epoxy glue is something forever! There is later on no possibility to remove the screen for any replacements without distroying the screen and the case. For myself I decided to use just hotglue for the screen in order to be able to heat up everything later on for possible updates. A...

Re: Noop question SD kite sword

As Kite wrote: the filesystem should be expanded in order to get enough space on the need partition. Perform the first boot with your raspberry with this card before transfering the roms. You can later if need resize your partitions with linux using Gparted if need.

Re: LCD Ribbon Connector broken?

The same happened to mine and the connector still works fine. Just without one leg on its side.

Re: Reversed axes in N64 emulator only

Had the same issue. Look into the config settings for n64 emulator. Was it retroarch.cgf? I am not in front of my gameboy actually but somewhere in the emulator spezific settings file: just swap both axis inputs. -1,+1 to +1,-1 or something like that.

Re: element11's 1st GBZ

Nice build. My question is more about 3d printing:
But what happend to your printed cartidge? I assume the visible surface was not on the build plate!?
There are some waves inside the surface which I assume could been caused by not well tight axis belt.
