Re: GAME BOY 1UP (Florian Renner concept)

No. In fact I spent most of yesterday afternoon pretty much entirely re-doing the case. :( Still not sure I'm happy with it, but it's getting there...

Re: Exact Parts List for GBZ

It's a little difficult, since it's a custom device and there are a ton options in exactly how you build it. PiZero, PiZeroW or Pi3? Button PCB, Helder's PCB, Kite's PCB or a cut-down DMG PCB? USB or PWM sound? Bluetooth and WiFi or not? Custom case or not? Custom glass or not? etc. Generally speaki...

Re: Upcoming Project w/custom hardwood/plexi case

Is there a way to shut it down from the program, prior to just disconnecting the power? It probably depends on the program (Lakka or Recalbox may differ), but you can definitely shut down from within Retropie. Hit 'start' from the main menu, then select 'quit' and 'shutdown system'. The Pi will pow...

Re: How-to de-touch a touch-screen.

I can replace the touchscreen at a later date if I want to by resoldering the cable.

Also, I didn't want to butcher it. Cutting the cable is quick and easy, but desoldering is the 'correct' method, so I went that route. Just a personal preference.

Re: Pi Zero case.

I've got a connection with an Envisiontec printer that I might go with. Otherwise it'll probably be a Form2 at max resolution. Plus some custom decals for the markings. I don't think a functional light is really practical (it's just a case, so I don't really want to modify the board), though it woul...

Pi Zero case.

The official Pi Zero case is nice enough, I guess, but I felt it deserved something cooler. I know it's popular to make NES-shaped cases for the Pi3, but the Zero is much narrower, so wouldn't fit as well. Plus, I never had a NES, so it does little for my nostalgia. My earliest retro-gaming memories...

Re: JST connectors to join Front and Back case

Most electronics stores should have suitably sized crimping tools. Maybe a trawl through the Maplins website would turn something up?

How-to de-touch a touch-screen.

A lot of larger LCDs come with touchscreens. If yours did, and if you don't want a touch screen, here's a simple, image-heavy guide to ripping it off! :D (standard disclaimers: not responsible for damage; your screen may vary, etc. etc. It's not a difficult operation, but I think everyone recognizes...

Re: [WANTED]Conductive rubber pads, select and start buttons.

Amazon.ca: https://goo.gl/DYHB5U
Or a dollar cheaper through eBay: https://goo.gl/sSEPUr

Looks like they're based out of Montreal, so it should be pretty fast delivery for most of the country.
