I am interested in using the same style female power connector so I dont need to alter the case for a micro usb. Can you let me know what size connector you used and possibly where I can purchase one?
It's probably this one.

https://www.ebay.com/itm/10Pcs-DC-Power ... SwKcdZw2Iy

5.5mmx2.1mm is the most common size.
I just got these in the mail and they seem like they are going to be too big. :(

Im looking around to try and find an exact size but Im not finding anything solid.

1.35mm? Can anyone confirm or help?

the reason i haven posted links for the basic parts is that I've already posted these in my first build posts....
(i see no point in repeating the same information, especially when they are the basics)

their listed there.....

https://sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php ... =30#p34716


the size your looking for is 3.5mm (its the same size as the original DMG socket).....



(NB) check my previous build posts, they are full of a lot of useful info.....

Sorry that I ask, but did you give by any chance the file to print out your Custom Raspberry pi Game boy zero?
Did you give it already in your previous messages, because havent read every single message in this topic...

Thanks!

All you had to do is read the first page of the thread for all the information used in this build. Here is the exact post:

First Thanks for all.

I have bought a 3.2" SPI TFT LCD, I burnt my SD with "mintyPi_v4", Do I need to configure some parameter to improve the quality of screen or "minty pi v4" is ready for get the best quality of this screen ?

Thanks again.

Personally.....
i'm not a fan of using the mintyPi V4.img for a Game Boy or other non mintyPi build....
that's not to say it wont work or even not work well
but, its been designed for a completely different build/system/project....
the user interface, startup/intro and configuration is all geared for the mintyPi....


there are other more suitable ways to enable the SPI LCD (my preferred methods)

Moosepr Guide
viewtopic.php?f=22&t=2312

JUJ 60 FPS
https://github.com/juj/fbcp-ili9341


here I've simplified the method for JUJ 60FPS (this is just based on my experience)
viewtopic.php?f=42&t=7389#p70512


these methods don't require you to have experience in Rocket Science...
they are VERY straight forward..
I have NO experience in Linux (or any other programming) and would class myself as a complete NOOB in these departments...

these guides are really straight forward to implement and enable.....

just take the time to read through and follow the steps....
(or just be LAZY and wonder why and how things work or aren't working)

I'd recommend you watch this video. It goes over both the wiring and software configuration.
