Did that and tried it again just now but nothing. I went ahead and bought another Teensy because its the only thing I can thing of that might be the issue. Flashing a script to it shouldnt break it, but the moment I do nothing works on that same pc again unless I move to a brand new pc thats never seen the teensy before. New one comes in Wed so ill keep every one posted.

Hi. Can you tell me where you got the perforated sheet for where the camera was? I'm having a hard time sourcing it.

Just got my new Teensy board, uploaded the sketch and windows still saw the device. Booted up my retro pi and went to controller config and BOOM sees the Teensy! and the button presses! So my Teensy was either bad from start or I messed it up. Either way I should be good from here.

Im pretty sure he had that custom made and the schematics to have your own made is on here somewhere.

apologies for the delay.....
but January was a busy month....

I've finally got around to this build....

its all buttoned up (well nearly)

I still havent had time to test it fully....
and I'll be able to give a proper verdict tomorrow, and also upload a video of it in action....

but so far it seem very (very) promising (props to Helder)
I havent installed the Mintybatterymonitor

https://github.com/HoolyHoo/Mintybatterymonitor

which will give me a shutdown button (which I've used the TV button for)
so all I've been able to test is the Power Button, and that seems to turn the system On and Off without any issues....
(which as it is, may not be great for the SD card)

Well if you used the code I gave you and wired up the TX pin the shutdown will only work when the pi has shutdown properly using the battery script of using the menu to choose shutdown. Of course if you hold the button in for a bit it will do a forceful shutdown as it is useful for those time the Pi might freeze and there is no way to do a proper shutdown.


Once you fully test it I can probably redo some things to make it fit better or whatever other things you'd like to be a better fit for the build.
