  1. Worklog [2023 Contest Entry] GB Palm Pico

    Despite entering last year and doing little more than picking up a soldering iron for the first time, I’m back again to try and make something. The project I have in mind is named the GB Palm Pico. It’s a tiny, Gameboy emulator that can be played with one hand, hopefully to a decent level of...

    Yveltal's Aqua Retro Lite CM4

    This is my Retro Lite CM4, designed by @Dmcke5 and @StonedEdge! It's a Switch Lite style handheld powered by the Raspberry Pi Compute Module 4. Many thanks to my friend StonedEdge for hooking me up with a kit last fall. It took me a little while to get around to assembling the unit, but I'm...

    Worklog GCShuffle

    Hey all, I've been gone a while and was only here very briefly. Life got busy and my previous project (a Wii portable) was put on hold until I am inspired. My current project may interest many of you though! I call it GCShuffle, a fun little board that is capable of mixing up Gamecube...

    Super Notendo

    After conceiving of this project nearly 5 years ago, I'm pleased to finally present the Super Notendo! Originally titled the "Notendo Toggle" when I started my worklog, I changed the name and reserved the "Toggle" moniker for another project. The video more or less explains it all, but the...

  6. Question Analog joystick (raspberry pi)

    Hi, I'm trying to build a portable console by using raspberry pi 4, and I want to connect analog sticks to it. Is there a way how to connect an analog joystick(preferable from the Switch or Vita) to GPIO pins? or maybe something like a connector to USB? Thanks in advance.

    Question Mini USB soldering directly to Raspberry Pi USB not working

    Hey guys, idk if this is the right place to be asking about this, but I am making a handheld Raspberry Pi retro game console, and I made a custom controller with a Teensy++ 2.0. This board uses a Mini USB cable to interface with the Raspberry Pi. I wanted to solder it directly to the Pi's USB...

    Raspberry Pi Handheld Audio Help

    Hey guys, so I am making a handheld (sheck out my worklog here), and I am trying to figure out what I should do for audio. My plan is to have a 3.5mm audio out so I can plug in headphones, but I also want to have speakers as well. The screen i'm using (link here) already has an audio amplifier...

    Raspberry pi kit that requires soldering

    The title says most of it, looking online a lot of the major appeal of raspberry Pi kits is that no soldering is needed, but I got my first iron recently and was looking for a kit that needs soldering, or maybe some guides online on what I could do with a Pi that needs soldering, thanks!

    Worklog Hot Apple Pi

    Three years ago I came up with a design for a meme portable as part of a mini contest that Aurelio put on. It was enough to win me a GC+ (thanks and by the way, I swear I will put it to good use someday) and I told myself I would someday actually make the portable from my design. The design...

    Worklog A Switch Lite Sized Raspberry Pi Portable

    Hi guys, thought I'd share my first project with you all. I've already finished the first iteration of this project but I will try and do this in a build log style so you can see some of my process before I start on some of the upgrades I've got planned. Late last year I was without a project...

    The Super Pi

    So over the last 2 weeks, I've been working on a project using the Raspberry Pi 3 as a portable gaming device. (Very original huh?) I made an attempt with it before using some really silly stuff inside of it: A USB SNES Controller, 18560s, RPI default audio... and so on. The final case thickness...

    Discussion Gameboy Advance SP with Raspberry Pi 0

    I don't know where else to post this so I guess i'll put it here. This is my first electronics project and i'm super proud of how it came out. Big thank you to gameboypi for putting all the info up on GitHub and helping me when I got stuck!
  16. Question GamePi Advance Attachment

    Hello; I've had a project on my desk for some months now, where the idea was to modify the Gameboy cartridge player for the Gamecube, remove the board and replace it with a Raspberry Pi with RetroPie. This way, not only can the bottom attachment display Gameboy cartridges, it can also emulate...

    Note before starting, I have very little knowledge of electronics, good knowledge of 3D modeling, and limited programming experience. I'm looking to design and 3D print a dock for the PS Vita that has a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ to output video. This has been done before, but I want to also add a...

    PIS2 - PS2 portable with build in SMB server

    So it's finally time to post this project in this section I believe. It's been quite a while since I started this project and it kind of evolve over the years. From thinking of using DVD drive all the way back in 2013 to looking into obscure hard drive setup for the slim, experimenting with...

    Question Help wiring switching audio

    I think I know how to do this, but I just wanna make sure before I go ahead and start. I'm planning on wiring in a headphone/amp switching circuit to my handheld (a unit running RetroPie), which is on a Raspberry Pi B+. Using this TRS jack as an example, I'm pretty sure I need to wire Terminal...
