Hi!!! If you wanna make a simple RetroPie machine out of eeePC, why not Xubuntu + RetroPie script? Xubuntu is lightweight, easy to maintain and the result will be almost the same as using a Raspberry Pi. I've done this someone ago with an old laptop and was a great machine, but the motherboard died because was so old...
@HurricaneFan I feel like that might be the right listing but it's not released yet. If you select Retroflag at the top of the listing it does take you to the Retroflag storefront; a third party listing wouldn't do that. It's going to be released at the end of the Month; maybe the SKU is showing up a bit prematurely.
Almost there! Progress is slow due to real life getting in the way but I'll hopefully get it sent for fabrication over the weekend.
I've included the option of adding a header to break out the gpio connections just in case I've made a mistake in my hook up or I wanted to add anything else in future.
I'm still undecided as to what (if anything) to use the serial port connections for, but since I took the time to measure out the footprints I wanted to include them. I've also added option to break these out to headers just in case I decide to use them at some point in the future.
New version available : 188.8.131.52 (05/17/2019)

I really like the look of this theme. Unfortunately the menu is extremely laggy. Currently I have every SNES NES and Genesis game and the menus are very sluggish on a Raspberry Pi 3B+ which is a real shame.
@movisman or maybe someone else... 😉
Everything seems to be running excellent with Ubuntu Server except Dolphin GUI menu and for instance the FPS counter are really big. This seems to be a resolution issue.
As we don’t use a normal desktop is there a way to specify the resolution used on my machine.
Dolphin seems to use the desktop res.
@evilmurray said in Swap LCD controller board for LCD monitor:
Sony SDM-S95FR 19
I don't know if this will work but I did a quick google search on the model number of your monitor and it came up with the following listing on amazon: https://www.amazon.com/Controller-M-NT68676-M170ETN01-1-M170ETN01-3-M190ETN01-0/dp/B07JMHZSKL .
I have never used this controller or your monitor so I can't be sure if it will work but I have re-used several laptop screens by ordering controller boards from amazon and ebay and they have worked fine. Most of the controllers will work with several different screens. Check the listings carefully and maybe email the supplier. Good luck.
