Not entirely sure about the fit but looks about right. Looks like a pretty nice case. A few reviews complained about broken usb cables inside, bu...

Re: snes Game controller & bluetooth keyboard

Any links to what you have or bought? Before you pick any emulators or games try to get to a menu with the keyboard and look for things that have to do with configuring controllers. Also try booting up the raspberry pi with no keyboard and see if it asks you to configure one.

Re: snes Game controller

Assuming the pi is running retropie you should first try just hitting start on the emulationstation menu with your keyboard and select the option to configure your controls then try to use the usb controller and set the controls. I have used a few cheap snes controllers and haven't had any problems ...

Re: Homemade joystick and buttons not working

Can you post a link to the guide you used. Also retropie uses raspbian as its base os so whatever you do on rasbian will work with retropie. They are still using jessie though. If the buttons are hooked directly to the pi you need yo use something like retrogame to turn the button presses into keybo...

Re: Servo Questions?

I have a pi2 with a couple of 9g servos hooked up using one 2A power supply and have had no trouble. They are for a pan/tilt system for my picam and are controlled using servoblaster. So I'd say depending on the servo and number of servos you might be able to get away with just using the 5v straight...

Re: Pcb for buttons?

Ive seen most people using the psp sticks. I didn't put any analog sticks in mine, but if you do you'll need an analog to digital converter either from a separate microcontroller like a teensy or arduino or a dedicated adc chip. These features are available on the all in one boards being sold on the...

Re: Small, non-hat, LCD screen?

The lcd you linked to says its compatible with rpi and has a link at the bottom for reference. I've also used displays using the ili9341driver. These are also sold as arduino displays but can work with rpi as well. Also you could still use a hat style lcd if you use dupont wires or solder wires to t...

Re: Soldered USB dongle won't work without cable connected

Hey not entirely sure if this will fix your problem but the micro usb actually has 5 pins rather than the usual 4 for reg usb. The fifth pin is called the id pin and ive seen some people have success by grounding this pin which is what im pretty sure your otg adapter is doing. More info can be found...

Re: [Tutorial] gpSP - Full Speed GBA Emulator with Sound and

Voltik, I had the same problem a long time ago. Not sure where i found this information but i was able to fix this problem by placing the file called game_config.txt in to my gpsp folder. The file is here: https://github.com/DPRCZ/gpsp/blob/mast ... config.txt
I hope this helps you.

Re: Moonlight Pair

Every time I've installed moonlight I just used sudo apt-get install moonlight and then everything just works. Maybe you could try that way instead of compiling it yourself. Then you can just follow that guide from the configuring moonlight section.

Re: Ili9341 display touch area

Yeah that sounds like it's probably the case. I won't have time until later to mess with it, but it looks like I should use xinput_calibrator. I felt like I might be making it more complicated than it is. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.

Ili9341 display touch area

Hello everyone. Been reading this forum for a few years but haven't really needed to post anything until now. I recently got one of these displays for my some of my projects. I've gotten it working fine using the device tree overlay rpi-display. This works well except the touch screen doesn't regist...
