General

Can I add a joystick to the mintyPi

Short answer: No. There is simply not enough room and the connections needed aren't available. Besides, none of the systems the mintyPi can run requires a joystick.

Where can I find ROMs?

Google. No one on here, the forums, or Discord will tell you where to find them. You need to find them yourself. Really not hard.

Why can my mintyPi not connect to my WiFi?

  1. Make sure you are using the RaspberryPi Zero W and not the RaspberryPi Zero v1.3. The W is the wireless variant that has WiFi and Bluetooth. You can find a visual guide here: RassperryPi Zero Difference
  2. Make sure you are using a 2.4 GHz network and not a 5GHz network. The RPi Zero W does not have a 5GHz antenna.

mintyPi V3 Specific

Will the mintyPi v3 ever be back in stock?

Short answer: Probably.

The screens that were being used are no longer able to be sourced for a decent price. In order to keep using the same screen, the price of the kit would have to be raised and no one wants that.

As of 6/1/2020, Helder is testing new screen that is slightly smaller and if things work out, he will make an announcement as to when the V3 will be available again. Keep an eye on his Instagram for updates.
