Just open it up, if it contains 1 PCB you are going to have to use the teensy, else you can take the 2 PCBs and put them in the case wherever you want. What do you meen with reset button?
There is no ds EMU Same reason there is no psp EMU, CPU is not strong enough, Maybe you can look up qemu arm image for ds/psp, since qemu can make use of your CPU, try isohunt.com

PCB is a printend circuit board, if you open Any modern piece of tech it will contain PCBs, it are those green or Brown, sometimes blue plates with transistors and other stuff on it.
I don't know about reset buttons, you might have to write a bash script for that, i don't use retropie a lot. You can add a camera if you want, just remember that, for a gui, you Will need to write a python/bash script, since a command line won't be very usable on a console with only 8 buttons. :lol:

Might be very hard making a chip system, would'nt it be a better idea just to use USB drives or sd's?

i thinks usb drives will be connected by usb hub because i will use a usb hub from adafruit
but how to connect sd's
and about the controller
do you forget it's 2 gamepads on 1 usb

Cut the controller you want to use off, and use the teensy with that 1, the other one Will still be usable.
What do you mean with Dongel switch?

Opening ROMs or programs cant be hard. What do ya mean?
For the switch you just take a USB cable, split it, and put a switch in the red cable. A USB sd reader is cheap, and works out of the box.

For the switch, in that case, you've got to write a bash script. Yes, you can change the location.

Noob you deserve a medal for your patience! I got frustrated just reading this thread... Nexusrex buy the raspberry pi and start tinkering and then ask questions when you get stuck. There is very little you can do to break it and almost everything you ask is searchable via google. If you had the raspberry pi you could plug the controllers in and see if they work rather than trying to second guess everything. It's good to have a plan and rough idea of what you are trying to achieve but give it a go and see where you get too.

It seems as if you want Noob to talk you through the entire process in which case you will learn very little and may as well just go out and buy a handheld computer system!

Despite the above I wish you all the best with this project, it is certainly not a simple undertaking and your ambition is laudable.

empty

p.s. Obviously don't be afraid to ask questions but at the same time don't be afraid to do things by trial and error. You'll have a lot more pride in your work at the end if you've had to work things out yourself.

Why don't you order your pi? Or has UPS stopped shipping to egypt? Are you sure radioshack has the pi? I recently looked it up and i didnt see pis on their site.

I think Java would be better, but you'll need a server on which the chatroom would run, Maybe you can download minecraft server jar and see if you can use the .class files which run the chat

If you use 4 aas you need a converter, with 3 you don't. You need to mod the screen, els you'd either need a converter from 5 to 12v
