PiBoy Advance Progress Update #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

Here’s a progress report for Leland Flynn on his PiBoy Advance project! From This 8-Bit Life:

I’ve begun work on a new project that I am tentatively referring to as the PiBoy Advance. This will be a portable multi-emulator machine built into the modified case of an original DMG-01 GameBoy. I’ve seen plenty of similar mods like this but I’ve never run across one built around a Raspberry Pi. So, what all will this build include?

Features:

  • 2.5 inch Color LCD (possibly upgraded to 3.5 at some point)
  • Raspberry Pi Model B (512MB RAM)
  • 4 Face buttons, 2 Shoulder buttons
  • 32GB of storage
  • 8400 mAh Battery pack (providing about 9 Hours of continuous play)
  • Many thousands of games across platforms such as: SNES, NES, Sega Genesis, GameBoy, GameBoy Advance, GameGear, MAME, Neo-Geo, and PS1)
  • USB Rechargable

I will be posting a fully detailed build log once the project is completed but for now I will be making updates as I rech milestones in the process….

NTSC/PAL (Television) TFT Display – 2.5″ Diagonal: Yes, this is an adorable small television! The visible display measures only 2.5″ (6.35cm) diagonal, the TFT comes with a NTSC/PAL driver board. The display is very easy to use – simply connect 6-15VDC to the red and black wires, then connect a composite video source to the yellow and black wire. Voila, a television display! There’s two little buttons to adjust the LED backlight brightness up and down (32 levels) and a button that ‘flips’ the display horizontally – there is no other adjustment available but we found that the color and contrast look great right out of the box.
