Anyway to get a pi+arduino mega to use a original ds screen?

So this is an odd question I know but....I’ve got both an arduino mega 2560, and a pi, and was wondering if there’s any way I could get them to work with an original(first gen) ds screen. Either the touch one or normal. I am thinking about getting new screens for my ds since they both had dead pixel...

Re: Can't Get retropie to recognize wireless mouse.

There wasn’t any mouse software that I know off, also I think it might have something to do with retroarch itself, as the same problem occurs with the other retro gaming os’s you can use. I formatted the sd card again and instead tried noobs and installed not only the raspbien desktop, but several o...

Can't Get retropie to recognize wireless mouse.

So i have a logitech mouse and keyboard, the m185 mouse(basically the cheapest ones I could get) to use with retropie. Problem is it doesn't recognize the wireless mouse at all. I know the mouse is fine because on another SD card I have the standard rasbian desktop to help myself with learning progr...

Re: what to do with an old police scanner.

So a bit of an update...I’ve finally gotten around to disassembling things off the scanner... turns out the bulbs aren’t led, they appear to be tiny incandescent ones. Idk how much that changes things but figure I should mention it. I made sure to take photos of everything as i was doing it, so i kn...

Re: what to do with an old police scanner.

Nice pics of the "relic" you have there! If it were me, I'd take everything out of the case, carefully, I'd save the speaker, the LEDs and some knob, the case of course! I'd probably save the crystals as well. Turn the unit to an RPi powered music streamer with LED VU meter display (thus the LEDs) ...

Re: Not sure where else to ask this....

If this device is totally broken and beyond repair, I'd consider turning this in to a Software Defined Radio "scanner". Strip out the contents and replace with a Pi and a USB SDR module (many TV modules can be used) and install some software to pick up and decode radio frequencies. It’s not broken ...

Re: STICKY: Introduce yourself!

just bought a pi at target. been eyeing them for awhile now. a friend of mine got one on amazon basically as an emulator box, but I didn't really care for that since I've got all the games i want either as the originals, or through Nintendo's vc service. and besides that you can get those on pretty ...
