@PbOak - I think you should be able to get most of you answers with a little research. It really depends on what Pi model you purchase. All the power requirements for each model are readily available with a Google search. The power supplies typically recommended are planning for the maximum power draw and not necessarily reflective of the actual power draw. Each persons setup is different. It's the same for a screen it depends on which model you purchase and then researching the technical specs.
The rest will require more planning on your part. Your estimated and peak power usage per day for lights, phone, etc. Calculating the watts per panel, battery size, battery capacity, battery banks, converters, etc. Mostly sunny days, cloudy.
I think most of the answers you'll need to research with your friend to fit your setup but to cover most Pi models a 5 to 5.1V, even 5.25V, 3A should do the trick. The rest is up to you! ;)
It's private. Thanks for asking btw :) Hopefully when it's FINSIHED (still testing, making tweeks, etc), I'll upload it. It's for now, just a RPI 3B attached to a Official 7" Screen. You could probably imagine it :)
I have a Freeplay Zero kit waiting anxiously to be put together. In my opinion a fantastic concept! Based on the Game Boy Advance, which has an amazing form factor, ergonomically way better than the DMG-01 if you ask me. You can find loads of GBA shells and you only need to cut away a little bit of plastic on the inside. The Freeplay Zero itself is a really nicely designed PCB to be soldered to a Raspi Zero W, but now they also have developed a kit for the CM3, so a bit more powerful, also a bit more expensive.
@mrsanitycheck There has been many fixes the past weeks.
This particular issue is one I have not seen before, so without knowing which versions that worked, and which was broken, I can't really say what the fix was. Or who it was that fixed it.
at first glance it looked fine, but when i typed another double quote next to the exsisting ones, it looked slightly different!! so i re-typed all the quotes, and everything is fine and dandy again!!! :)
In the circles we swim in, he's become somewhat of a celebrity. Did he strike you as a down-to-earth kinda guy? I remember reading about the portable 2600 he made nearly twenty years ago and desperately wanting one. What did you two talk about?
Thanks for the reply!
I forgot to say that the console has the CPU in each cartridge, and was produced by OneStation.
If I get to know wich pins uses the display I may use the entire board to get it working.
Buying a new display is not an option right now, but I'll keep the suggestion.
