Custom 4.3in Landscape Handheld w/ GameBoy Advance SP-style Buttons

This project was something I've wanted to do for awhile and I was finally able to get around to it. I've always liked the soft-clicky feel of the GameBoy Advance SP's buttons. I also wanted to use up a bunch of extra components I've accumulated over the past couple of years, including some 4.3in com...

Re: Modding a 5" lcd to 5V?

Did you check the composite screens list to see if the controller board has a known 5V mod? https://www.sudomod.com/wiki/index.php/GBZ_Screen Otherwise, if you have a voltmeter, you could carefully check the pins of any 8-pin chips on the board to see if it's 5V. Usually it's one of the middle pins,...

Re: Gameboy DMG Screws Query

The only difference between m2 6mm and m2 8mm is that the one is 2mm longer than the other. If it's not wide enough to grip properly, you probably need m2.5 or m3.

Re: Very New Questions

Just got caught up on this thread. Thanks for all the mentions, @infinitLoop! @kschmidt0303 Using a composite screen is definitely the easiest way to go, as it only requires 3 wires: +5v, GND and signal. With most composite screens pulled from backup cameras, you need to modify them to use 5V instea...

Re: GameBoy RR (Rolls Royce)

Just got my shell from Boxy Pixel last Friday. A little heavier than I expected, but looks amazing. Still waiting on the 640x480 screen and then I'll piece it together.

Re: Aluminum Case

Final picture showing back buttons. This was perhaps the easiest build to put together. Everything just screws together and the only place I put hot-glue was to hold the speaker in place. It looks like there's going to be something to hold the speaker in place, but I didn't receive that with my pur...

Re: My New PCB Prototypes

I'd like to use your Power assist pro (and a bunch of other of your boards) on my pi 3+ build. Does the power board put out enough amps? Hey cdndavid, It can run a Pi 3, but you'll get lightning bolts. From what I've seen and experienced, the voltage drops/lightning bolts can mostly be eliminated b...

Keep in mind that a 1 year old will want to touch the screen.

Re: The GigaBox, Take 1 (My first GBZ)

Congrats on the finished build. Looks good. Sounds like you took the scenic route and encountered all sorts of interesting creatures along the way. (Some quite friendly and others not so nice.) As for the SPI screens, I still recommend those for a Zero W build. They're crisp and low power. With fbcp...

Re: My New PCB Prototypes

Did you set up your SD card image to use fbcp or fbcp-ili9341? It'll stay a white screen until that's configured. It's usually easiest to do that while you still have access to the HDMI port, or if you have another Pi Zero you can set it up on that first. (or, you could even use the composite TV con...
