Re: PSP Emulation

The PSP was more powerful than the PS1, and the PiZero can't do PS1, so... (even the Pi3 struggles at times)

This compatibility chart from Lakka says it's not possible on the Zero, and not perfect on the Pi3, either: http://www.lakka.tv/doc/Hardware-support/

Re: Best way to countersink holes for extra buttons?

As long as the diameter is larger than your hole, it doesn't really matter what size you go with.

Re: Best way to countersink holes for extra buttons?

I have seen various builds talk about using countersink bits, dremels, hand sanding, even using a drill bit at a small angel to achieve it. Use a countersink bit. It's far and away the best, simplest way to add a bevel. Depending on the bit, if the cutting lip is sharp enough, you can even just twi...

Re: Posible alternative...

Checked the Barkleys mints against an Altoids tin. They are virtually identical. Barkleys might have a mm less radius to the corners (so it's very slightly squarer looking), but the width, height and length are all effectively the same, both for the lid and the bottom. The hinge even looks to be ide...

Re: mintyPi splash screen

Suggestion for the video version with progress bar: Make the progress bar striped. Something like this: https://i1.wp.com/psdfinder.co/wp-content/uploads/Candy-Striped-Progress-Bar-Interface-PSD-Freebie.jpg http://www.smashingbuzz.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/06/CSS3-Animated-Loading-Bar.jpg It would...

Re: issue with USB wiring (maybe)

Working backwards my audio wiring goes: Speaker --> Volume Pot ---> Headphone Jack ---> Audio Amp ---> USB Sound card ---> USB Hub ---> Powerboard ---> Powerboost / Banggood. Does that mean your headphone volume is fixed, then? Wouldn't it make more sense to have the volume pot before the headphone...

Re: ICMF's Pi Zero in a custom case.

This is looking really nice! I'm wondering though about the shoulder buttons. Unless you need it squared of for the internals, I think extending that rounding fillet up through the buttons would be more comfortable, and further emulate the DMG. Couple of reasons. First and foremost, it was the easi...
