    Everything finally works, I got games loaded up, and it's all nicely fit together. The onl;y real change I did was use a dremel to cut out the built in battery box (since I wasn't using it). This allowed me to squash everything in and make sure it all fits!

  • More Buttons

    Finally, all the buttons are working, aaaaaaaaaaand... Recalbox requires a start button. I thus decided to add  start, select, and 'trigger right' buttons (the latter being used as the hotkey button). I slapped a perfboard under the enclosure and hid the wires sliding them up through the battery pack. I might clean it up later, painting it black or something, but it looks alright for now.

  • Changed to Recalbox OS

    Due to issues setting up the GPIO joystick drivers in Retropie, I have switched to RecalboxOS which has them installed by default.. I've also fallen in love with this OS. It's great. Give it a try!

    Anyway, because of the switch, I have to use a specific layout for the buttons now, so I had to rewire the buttons to the correct input.

  • Soldered Up!

    At the point of creating this project, all components are soldered and packed together. All that is left to do is install retropi and connect the GPIO buttons to keyboard/joystick inputs (and troubleshoot if need be).
