I always wondered what a horizontal Game Boy would play like and thanks to the Adafruit Game Grrl http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:382485 now I can find out! I am trying to fit everything in the original footprint so I'm excluding a speaker.
Unlike the original Pi Grrl, this is made for the new Rapberry Pi Model B+, Model A+ and Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The new Pi's won't fit in the old Pi Grrl with the Adafruit PiTFT 2.8" LCDs.
So far everything fits in this configuration, though! I am waiting on the battery, powerboost 500, micro lipo charger and game controller to finish this build. More updates to come!
Problems With current .stl files:
-No holes for screws to hold case together. Easily fixed with a drill but I'll fix the .stl files
-Power switch needs to be changed. It interferes with the placement of the Pi B+
-Mounting an audio jack at the top will be tricky at best.
-Yeah I put the USB for the charger where your left palm sits.
-The holes for the buttons are slightly too small
I will update the files as I find and fix problems.
This uses the internals from Adafruit's Raspberry Pi Gameboy http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:382485 except I'm using a Model B+ instead of the Model A.
I've excluded standouts for the Pi initially so that you can mount the Pi with double-sided foam tape. Also this leaves you room to fit whichever Pi you have without having to remix the design. I used an old Rev 1 Model A Pi on my Gameboy Pi build and ended up mounting it with tape anyway.
I left screw holes for the Powerboost 500 and Micro-Lipo charger since I wasn't comfortable using tape to mount them on my Pi Game Boy build.
There is no access to the MicroSD card from the outside of the case so make sure to download the full NES library before sealing up your build. I did this on purpose so that I could have a nice, sealed box. I will probably change this later but it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I will update as I make progress on this build.
