Re: Noop question SD kite sword

The roms needs to go into partition2. But since this partition is ext4 you are normally only on linux able tonwrite to this file. This is the reason most of us transfer roms after all setup finally by a ssh connection using terminal or other sftp file transfer clients. Or you access your sd card by ...

Re: Noop question SD kite sword

For transfering images to SD card you need the right software tools. Just google for it depending on windows or Mac other tools are necessary. When you transfer the image to the SD card all previous formating or file system will be revoked and several new partitions will be written by your software ...

Re: LCD Ribbon Connector broken?

Just try if this cap still works without the brocken leg.
The same happened to mine and the connector still works fine. Just without one leg on its side.

Try to insert your ribbon cable as usual with the right oriantation and insert the black cap.

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.

Re: Aluminum Game Boy Zero Housings

Nice idea, I would assume to use one of this cases during a future build. Just some thoughts about: -Wifi and Bluetooth will be a problem inside a metal housing! -common ground by the case could been used but difficult to handle: each connection to the metal groud must be well sanded or grinded in o...

Re: Build done, but random reboots and screen freezes

The behaviour of the running Pi itself let me guess it is not under voltage. For suddenly reboots I more feel its linked to a short cirquit from 5V power to ground.

Re: Build done, but random reboots and screen freezes

Could be a lag of sufficent power. Or someting is shortening the power maybe from force to the case when you press buttons during games.

Re: Arduino Leonardo pro micro

5 volts and ground you can find anywhere on the board. The data lines usually go to each a 22 Ohm smd resistor. Between usb jack and these resistors is where your usb data wires should go. Take care to measure the continuity after soldering data wires to this resistors since these components or thei...

Re: My Safe Shutdown Solution - Pololu and Logic Chip

Or more smaller caps in parallel to minimize hight.
As well for the integrated circuit if helpfull: To minimize hight you could use it without socket. Bent the IC pins by 90degrees to outside and solder them direct to the cupper side of your board.
