Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

Giving up on this project. Instead of spending all of that money on building a GameBoy Pi project, I should have just bought 3DS store money.

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

Okay, so while I get RetroPie working, my LCD screen appears to be ******. I broke off the metal contacts while trying to solder wires to them, so I think it would be safer if I just get one that already has HDMI or composite video wired to it.

Having trouble using RetroPie.

I've been burning the RetroPie image to an 8GB SD card. It worked at first, the games booted, etc. Then, the games stopped working. I would go to play one, and it would "load", and then it would take me back to the game select menu. So, thinking it was something of my doing, I erased the c...

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

I've got the RasPi, and I've put RetroPie onto an 8GB memory card. I found that if you press F4 while on the select-a-game menu, it takes you to the command terminal where you can just type "startx" and it takes you to Raspbian Wheezy. Which is perfect for me. My only problem now is, I'm n...

Ah, I went for the 6-button "Street Fighter" style layout (I'm also working on a portable gaming-oriented Pi ;)) http://img692.imageshack.us/img692/7592/48ku.jpg Obviously this is just a prototype; more of a "proof of concept", really. I'll probably use an analogue stick in the ...

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

I whipped up a little something today. http://i.imgur.com/ynaHJ46.jpg Ideally, this is what I want it to look like. I took measurements of everything possible to make this diagram. Those are two 3DS analog sticks, as well as a 3DS d-pad with ABXY buttons, and the +-home buttons are obviously from a ...

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

I think you're probably going to want Li-Ion/Polymer batteries here. They're 3.7v nominal (actually 4.2v when fully charged, falling to around 3.3/3.5v when fully discharged) so two of them in series can easily g... Thank you for the advice! I will definitely look into this. I don't know how much p...

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

Both awesome responses, thanks guys. Now, my main concern is the LCD display. It's the only thing where I have yet to find a suitable part. I'm thinking of using the GPIO for it and removing my RCA component from the Pi, and then having an HDMI port. EDIT: I've taken a look at the TFT that Katamari ...

Re: GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

I'm not sure where your link is supposed to go, you might have pasted the wrong one. But as for a GPIO hookup to the LCD, if I did that, I could remove the RCA component to free up more space if I had to. That's a good idea. I'm definitely not going to use a touch screen. I'm going to try to have tw...

A very ambitious project and I wish you luck with it. I think that you will find space to be in very short supply. If you haven't seen it already, at least one... Thank you very much for your input!

GameBro - A Pi in a GameBoy.

Hello, fellow forum users! This is my very first project using the Raspberry Pi, and actually, my first time working with things like plastic and circuitry. My goal is to turn an old original GameBoy into a portable computer, and a gaming system. http://i.imgur.com/ynaHJ46.jpg Project Goals: - To re...
