The ones labeled as "Included" are included and the ones labeled "Optional" can be purchased. Don't know how much more clear it can be.

Hey Kite,

I managed to get into this most recent pre-order for a Circuit Sword and I'm really excited for it to arrive so that I can get to building.

I ordered the additional board that adds volume control in place of the HDMI connector just in case. My question is, is there any way that I can tap into some pads (or pins if necessary) so that I can have both the HDMI connector AND have a hardware volume knob somewhere?

I think it would be really cool if I could manage it so that the volume knob and USB connector come out the side using the additional board and then somehow reroute the HDMI board (trimmed down?) So that the HDMI connector comes out of the top of the fake cartridge.

Anyway, great job with the board! I'm very excited to get building.
It is possible if you use the HDMI back board, and then mount the volume pot somewhere else! The volume pot is connected by a 3pin cable, so as long as you put the vol pot as a resistor divider and wire it up to the included cable, you can put it anywhere. Rerouting the HDMI is really not possible so that's your only option really!
Perfect! I wasn't sure if the HDMI connection was just a ribbon cable where I could order a longer one to extend it or if that would introduce too much noise or whatever.

Hey Kite,

Do you know of any "upgrade" 320x240 IPS screen that I could use in replacement to the LQ035NC11 (TFT)?

I saw that the options you recommended for the 640x480 are all IPS, but they are difficult to find and they increase the build complexity as well.

Thanks!

Hey guys, im about to order a Circuit Sword (CM3+) as soon as its available so, i had this question on mind.

Which is the storage capacity the CS CM3+ can handle?

Is it a good option to buy an Micro SD Card class 10 U1 or U3? (its suppost to be that U3 its even faster than U1) but im not sure if the CS will take advantage it this.

Thanks in advance.

@kite

Is it possible to buy the volume add-on board for my kit I bought a year ago?

@Skeyth: I use a 32GB U1 on mine and have no problems with it. I have almost every game it can play on it as well besides PSP games since I can not get them to work for some reason. I think the supported max for the CM3 is 256GB.

@tlxxxsreacer: It should be possible. You can probably contact him and see if he has an extra or worst case, wait until the next preorder and order one then.

They no longer come with fans. Kite, correct me if I am wrong; They really aren't needed and are getting hard to source.
