Any chance of modifying the files, the hdmi connector scratches the top and leaves a bump, would be nice if it sat flush

screen looks to be the elecrow 5" touch screen, they run about 35 to 40 on amazon.

How would i go about modifiying this for a 3.5" display?

Hi can you do this for an 7 inch screen please ?
Thank you

In the process of making this I'll post my specs and links when finished

Please do. There is only 1 picture of the guts, so I am trying to figure out which 5 in screen to get? A parts list with more specifics would be greatly appreciated.

Same here but im using the other one that uses a ps3 controller. Running into so e issues with the hdmi connector tho

Hey man do you mind setting us up with a wiring diagram?

Just use USB gamepad to USB or normal gamepad for GPIO like in RetroPie's site. Speakers go to audio out or optionally through miniamp. Battery goes through charger.
Need for any specific wiring diagram?

Very good, but the shoulder buttons are in bad position. I might design them to be on the back side, with using SNES controller buttons.

Can you please provide us the schematics and how to wire the whole thing. I like to build one
Thank you

Has anyone else built this? I have the case, screen, pi and USB SNES controller. I am having issues figuring out exactly what I need for the rest of the pieces. Any help would be appreciated!

Cool project! Can you post the link of the snes gamepad that fits in the case? There are plenty types of boards of the gamepad.
Thank you!

Wouldn't the top cover print better if it were flipped so that the top face is down on the bed?

When can we have the analog stick version ?

Hi there,

I see you're using a 3.7V 2000mAh battery. Did you use a boost regulator to get it to 5V to power the pi? Also, whats the battery life like? Does the screen use a micro usb connector for power?


Screen power is wired to the powerboost, as is the pi.

Same question here...

Can you do an install tutorial?
That You for the file :)
