    Raspberry Gameboy

    Hi,

    i started some weeks ago to modify a broken gameboy with my raspberry pi. This include also the connection to the original buttons. The full build log is in my flickr account Flickr Build log

    Hi,

    the connection to the buttons is not so hard. I cut the original gameboy pad and reconnect the buttons directly to the GPIO Pins. Be sure to use the 3.3V supply on the GPIO as a source and then each button to a GPIO Pin. Works really well but I had some problem with reconnecting the wires to the cutted board.

    A circuit indicator is your friend
    Best regards

    The circuit indicator helps to find the right wire. To connect the GPIO to the buttons I use some help from this guy:

    I'm not finished yet. I have to check if I write a kernel module or use the process he describe.
