Ok. I have to think about it.... i spent many money at this time :(

For the front buttons, i buy the original PCB and i thought i would use a FPC 20pins.

But this solution take more place...

You think it's possible for somebody to made a version for oshpark.com (for example) and have my version ?

Second question : I see you not use nylon fixation. And your new solution is more compact. Any tips ?

Big thanks and.... BRAVO !
If you going to use the push on/off button circuit from my build you cannot use the original PCB as there is a common ground connection between buttons.
To save space bottom sides of boards are covered with kapton tape and glued with epoxy to main frame. The bond is strong bud still can be broken easily if necessary.
If you need a bottom pcb with a breakout connection it can be easily done or modified from my design.

I'm impressed that this thing can run cemu at full speed. Did you have to change any of the graphics settings to get it to run well?

Apparently Breath of the Wild runs amazing on Cemu, when it came out for the Wii U it was their top priority to get it to run flawlessly, should give that a try sometime!

Also, is there a place you can buy that grey bracket that holds the original screen in separately?

VERY nice! I have an Atom-based compute stick that I wanted to make something like this with. Where'd you get the screen?

The idea and how u did this is awesome like always. No discussion.

But the performance of that stick isn't really awesome in my opion

The Magic Stick Wave is little more expensive but way better ATM.
Also if people look for a better charging option look at this one, specially for series.

Hm not much of a difference between those 2 sticks but happy to see a project utilizing Magic Stick ;)
And a good charging board but twice the size :( of a board with tp5100 and still needs a BMS with balancer but thanks for recommendation will test one out.

If I look right then your stick is just dual-core with 1.1ghz and just 4 GB RAM but the biggest magic stick has a x8700 quadcore @ 2.4 GHz with 8 GB so the processor is same like the GPD Win I have/had, so the performance is much better. Or u wait for Apollo lake chipset that gives more fps @ less CPU watt usage.
