In case anyone else tries to use a genesis' original switch... middle connects to left or right depending which way the switch is. So you can connect middle to a gpio and one side pin to ground and it will work.
squints "That wiring looks familiar"
I may have my carpentry skill down, but I am always in envy of the artistic skills other people can display. It's a shame about the one side but that is what first runs are for.
One other bit of advice. Be sure to give the outside a few coats of polyurethane or something to protect it after all that hard work on the art.
@mitu Help! i want to make Ultimate MK3 work with my ps4 controller, my sega genesis emu is "gens", i am using the version from emulationstation's official website... Can you help me? i really want to play with my friends :c
(in case you need it)
latest update of Windows, 8gb ram, amd a12-9800 apu.
Very similar to my build (including the Mayflash), although I cut some grooves in the expansion slot to add some USB ports.
I wired the reset and power button to work as well, using a coupleof trimmed microswitches and GPIO pins, think I used the 'PiGirl' script to add them easily, then set the reset button as an exit emulator option, as I just couldn't configure that with a standard Mega Drive controller.
I had this problem on an old atari, I think i needed to drop from 12v to 9v, I just bunged enough diodes in series to get a big enough voltage drop, worked well.
However, that doesnt take into account the prviously mentioned issue of if the voltage is ac or dc and if the amperage is enough, which it almost certainly is not.
@red5ive said in ComicBook Theme Launching Images:
Can that be done and if so what do I need to do?
The splash images are not part of Emulationstation, but part of the launcher - Runcommand. So, unless you find a substitute for it, the answer would be no.

@ruckage Hey. How is going your tests on the grid view layout ? You showed us really nice mockup, have you succefully recreated them with the grid view theming syntax ?
Sorry, we've had unusually good weather here in the UK so I've been making the most of it while I can so haven't had much time to work on this. However the basics are already working so I will probably have a version to test soon.
@Taft Thanks for this guide..
i was able to get it to work with retropie well.. and dont see a screen lag..
however i see a weird issue..and wondering if anyone can help..
when hdmi cable is plugged / connected to monitor..i see dual display and the games run in correct resolution as in the whole game screen can be seen on the monitor as well as the 3.5 screen..
however if i remove hdmi connection and reboot.. i see lcd screen resolution is fine but when i start a game..that game doesn't fit correctly on the screen. it's resolution is much larger so i can only see partial screen of the game.
any idea how i can fix this issue?
