A quick video for you guys showing how to install Helder’s battery monitor board:
Get the battery monitor board here: http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3699
I updated the pre-made Retropie image to include the scripts from Hoolyhoo to make this work: http://www.sudomod.com/wiki/index.php?title=MintyPi#Software
If you want to install his scripts to an already-setup Retropie install, you can get them here (along with instructions): https://github.com/HoolyHoo/Mintybatterymonitor
Also, a couple updates on Helder’s screen/board combo and the mintyPi giveaway(s):
• Helder’s parts should be back in stock in the next few weeks, so keep an eye on the forums for that. This next version will have the components for the battery monitor functionality added to it, and should have the screen pre-soldered to the board (assuming nothing falls through with the manufacturer), so a nice little upgrade for those parts.
• Entries for the giveaway are still open through the end of August (entry widget is at the bottom), and Helder’s let me know that he’d like to chip in a unit to give away as well! So there will be TWO winners chosen, and your odds of winning one just doubled. 🙂
• Lphillimore’s giveaway is still going on through the end of the month as well: http://www.sudomod.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=38&t=3456
So that’s THREE chances to win a mintyPi!
Thanks to Helder and Hoolyhoo for making this sweet update to the mintyPi!
