Re: Hd display Raspberry pi 3, 7,000mah

Hey, I got this 3.5 HDMI screen and I have a trick to share... If you don't define the resolution in the config.txt and power the screen along the rpi zero, the detected resolution is lower 4:3, but if you restart the rpi zero, you will get 1080 and 16:9 ... I'll get some screen shots of the differe...

Re: PSP 1000 Analog Stick to Teensy LC

The potentiometers are not completely linear, that's true but the travel distance is too small to make much difference. You can see the piece of code I used to scale the values I read Joystick.X(map(analogRead(0),170, 853, 1023, 0)); Joystick.Y(map(analogRead(1),170, 853, 0, 1023)); The lower value ...

Re: Anyone tried Zero LiPo ?

Saw pimonori have something called Zero LiPo with enable pin and lower battery detection so you can shutdown the pi gracefully. A bit cheaper than the Powerboost 1000c in the UK at least. Ordered one up as they were cheapish, still think £2.50 postage is a swizz mind. https://shop.pimoroni.com/prod...

Re: Thanos GB Zero build

Security monitor arrived. Opened it up and attached video to the pi through the usb type plug at the top. Whilst all connected to a separate power supply, everything works well. Tried to connect the pi to the 5v source I found on the board and the pi keeps restarting and something is emitting a hum...

Re: Oxidized Tip Refuses to Tin

Easy, get a new tip and use only leaded resin core solder (63/47). I leave the iron on for hours sometimes, never oxidised.

The lead free solder is bad for the tips.

Re: Help with SketchUp

A possible solution would be extending the cartridge, but I'm not sure how that would look like placed in the Gameboy..
