Another one down, one more to go!

Completed work on a Gameboy Zero for my middle boy, Kite's CS-Lite boards really do make putting one of these together a snap, a little work each evening and you're done in no time. Apparently one screw used to hold the PCB in was super long, it looks to have applied some pressure against the front ...

Re: New Freeplay GBA Zero

I've had good luck with increasing the hole size a little at a time then fitting in the PCb to be sure I'm still centered. Its slow but saved me from a shell replacement last time.

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - OPEN

How easily accessible are these switches once everything is put together ? Would it be something I could easily change without taking apart? I can can get to the switches via the battery compartment on the CS-Lite I just completed, you can enlarge the hole if you like but it isnt a requirement. You...

Re: A New GBZ joins the family.

Re: [PRE-ORDER] Circuit Sword, Circuit Sword Lite + Circuit Gem - OPEN

Can anyone comment on how fast the Compute Module 3+ boots up? My Super AIO with Pi Zero takes so long to boot I never end up using it. My Freeplay CM3 and Circuit Sword CM3 both boot extremely fast, far faster than the Pi Zero builds I've done. I will say I just completed a CS-Lite build for my ol...

A New GBZ joins the family.

Ever since I did my first Minty Pi build my boys have been obsessed with seeing the "Gameboys" that dad builds. In short order they all started doing extra chores to earn themselves the parts needed to put together their own Gameboy Zero. My oldest recently earned his final pieces and we began assem...
