I want to add that my optimizations will work with any Raspberry based system like Pi0/1/2/3 whatever revision, and also or CM3 8-)
Small addition because someone asked me :mrgreen:
You'll be glad to know that my CS image has the "don't wait for network boot" set, and also I adjusted the OSD script slightly so that it actually saves that temp file to a tiny RAMDISK, so it doesn't use the SD card at all to display on screen.

Oh Kite you are wonderful lol... we have talked this possibility once a few months ago and you did it !
Using the Ramdisk is a very great addition to extend SD life...

3) If you are not HDMI, disabling the circuitry will help save current
Shut HDMI Off

Code: Select all

/usr/bin/tvservice -o
(-p to re-enable)
Then disable it permanently

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/rc.local
and add the code above to the end of the file.
CTRL o to write Out the file, CTRL x to eXit the file
Is the internal HDMI and the Circuit Sword HDMI output both affected by this code snippet? Obviously since I'm using the 320 screen included with the kit, I will not be using the internal HDMI for the screen, but I do want to maintain access to the HDMI output. Any foreseen issues here? (or with any other items in this guide now that we have a new PCB with new tricks).

Kite’s board is just an extension of the Pi, so disabling the HDMI interface will disable it also on the board. ;)

If you want to be able to use sometime the HDMI, do not use this settings.

The rest has no impact on boards ability

Creating a system menu in Emulation Station to apply my optimization settings :mrgreen:

Yeah, thanks to Somatorio, you can now apply some of my optimization settings right from Emulation Station by accessing a menu system like if you were browsing roms :lol:
Somatorio did a huge work on that, there are some minor stuff to improve but the code is perfectly working and the settings are now accessible via a menu system, that means you no longer have to type code in terminal to aply them :mrgreen:

So, please say thank you to Somatorio :D

Here is how to.

1) SSH into your Game Boy (Pi3 or CM3 or Zero based)
read here for instructions on how to https://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=44&t=3567
2) Normally you start on home directory, but just to be sure to not mess up your system by writing stuffs where you must not write, navigate to your home folder

Code: Select all

cd ~
3) get the installer

Code: Select all

wget http://gbz-menu.somatorio.org/
4) rename the file to something more useful and make the installer executable

Code: Select all

mv index.html gbz-menu-install
chmod +x gbz-menu-install
5) launch installer

Code: Select all

sudo ./gbz-menu-install
6) go have a coffee :lol:

7) reboot and enjoy

Code: Select all

sudo reboot
you can see in this video how it looks like :D

daaannng!!!

EDIT:
I'd love to include this superb feature into something similar looking like those Retropie Setup scripts. the main idea is to launch things from the Options menu. gonna take a look into that this weekend. maybe we can build something like this:

This is great Yaya. Maybe you should integrate this tuto into your previous power savings thread.
