How did you go from the joysticks to the teensy? Did you solder in a new connection or did you make use of the existing white wire connector for the original hardware?

In this project I made a custom pcb to hold the teensy 2++ and fpc connectors for the joysticks and buttons.

Thanks for the previous responses :D Can you tell me how you got the home/power pcb printed? Did you use a specific service? Would you be willing to share your design file, if available?

The pcb is so simple I have done it at home with the yellow paper transfer method for laser printer.

Hello... I've been working on a project and I am finally ready to buy a screen... I've been trying to get one from alibaba... everytime I hit order some company responds to my request trying to sell me something different. How do you actually get the lcd that's actually listed?

Has anyone had any success?

That lcd is expensive around 120£, use cheap alternative with full hdmi port easy to modify for FPC

I just can't be happy with the active area on these smaller displays...

Original screen active display area: 78mm x 138mm
5.98 screen you used: 74.5mm x 132.5mm
The cheaper 5.9 screen: 72.9mm x 129.6mm

Id really like to find a bigger screen that is 1080p but I think we are out of luck. Maybe im being silly... ill try the 5.9 inch and see how it looks

Edit - found this one
US $36.20 16%OFF | 6 inch 2560*1440 2K LCD Screen Display HDMI Module Kit for 3D Printer VR Virtual Reality DLP SLA PC Monitor UV Curing Projector

74.52mm x 132.48mm so 1.75mm gap on the top and bottom and 2.75mm gap on the left and right. I think this will look good especially because i plan on using a glass screen protector and those are typically smaller than the screen anyway
