Hi Sota, nice guide. I have a problem, my Arduino doesn't show up on my computer at all. It is the same pro micro as yours, the blue one. I followed the sparkfun tutorial, but I fall over at the first step because the micro doesn't show up at all. The red power light turns on though. Do you have any advice?

Never mind, just turns out the USB cable I was using was bad.

I added a modified Sketch along with USBasp HEX files so your code works with my AIO boards to the end of your first post but here it is as well:

Don't contact me about obtaining my board files (as you will not get them). Don't contact me about any of my boards if they are sold out, they will be restocked as soon as I can get them.


Don't support thieves like ckliang who copied my AIO to resell and is now cloning the mintyPi, support the original creators and not the thieves!

Followed the guide to a t. It's giving me an error when I tried to upload 'JoyState_t' does not name a type. I haven't modified the sketch in anyway, just opened and uploaded. Any idea why it would do this?

I had this exact issue because i tried using the latest version of Arduino.

Removed everything, installed as per the guide and all works as expected.

Good luck.

Hi Sota!
First of all, thanks for this guide! Great job!
Im using a pcb controller supplied by kitsch-bent to the project SuperGameGirl to do my build. This board its suppose to work with gpio pins but i'm having a hard time to get it working, so I decided to buy a micro pro just like your's and try by this way.
I'm planing to the wiring like this:

Is this wiring good or I'm doing some mistake?
Hope you can help me :)

The only info that i have about these boards its the pages of the project(imgur/reddit/github) and the page where it's bought, and none of the pages talk much about them.
The pages are:

-http://www.supergamegirl.com/
-http://imgur.com/a/gFhk7
-https://github.com/Cristov9000/SuperGameGirl
-https://www.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comme ... _handheld/

I tried to talk with the guy behind of the project but seems that he isn't much supportive. Tried to find help in some other forums but when the people ear me talking about the project SuperGameGirl seems like they run away like the devil from the holy cross :lol: :lol: :lol: . My bad for give a try on this project.

BTW, I tried the wiring that i posted above and it worked :D now my buttons are all detected. Since that I have that case 3D printed, i have to find a way to fit the micro pro in there :) wish me luck.
