Parts List

(Note: some of these are Amazon Smile associate links. They don't cost you anything extra but they do help the site pay for things like hosting and the smile portion donates a fraction of your purchase to a charity of your choosing.)

Please watch it fully once or twice before attempting to build your MintyPi V3 so you know what is coming!


Does it have L/R buttons?

 Yes πŸ‘ it πŸ‘ has πŸ‘ L πŸ‘ and πŸ‘ R πŸ‘ buttons.

Can I use Barkleys Mints in stead of Altoids?

 Yes, in fact someone on the forums did just that:

Can you get to the SD card?

 Not easily, no; you'd have to remove a few screws and lift out the bottom portion of the tin.

How will you put ROMs on it without access to the SD card?

 This is why the Pi Zero W is so nice - it has built-in wifi, so you can transfer files and update settings that way.

How much does this cost?

 Around US $175-$200

Can I just buy a pre-made one?

 The best place is to check the "For Sale/Trade" section of the forums:

Is there room for analog sticks?

 Probably not, and would require finding something other than Retrogame for the input (it just spits out keyboard keys given some GPIO pin input, which of course wouldn't work well with analog sticks).

How do you control the volume?

 You can control the volume while inside a game by pressing function + up/down on the d-pad.
