Coming: Retroflag GPi Gameboy Case for Raspberry Pi Zero/W

@MajorDangerNine Several of the issues you list are present on the RP3, like Pokemon Mini not saving in all games, or 5200 control issues. And virtually every emu will run better with less screen to refresh; I'd be surprised if running at the little 320x240 screen or whatever it is didn't provide a big speed boost all by itself.
I mean, on the RP3, I was able to double performance in several emus by taking screen res down from 1920 to 1280...

@rkoster Yes, the problems are present on the other hardware and I would list them the same when it comes to that hardware as well. I mentioned the resolution mostly from a console setup point of view, though the fact it has to be mentioned means the RPi0 doesn't have power to spare for those systems so the likelihood of a game not running full speed is higher.
Also, GBA, Genesis, Sega CD, and SNES all require the use of inaccurate emulators paired with further issues caused by the RPi0 hardware.

@MajorDangerNine thanks for the info! I had a feeling about most of that but most of my searching came up with a lot of conflicting info

I'm wondering if this case could work (with some thinkering) with those BananaPi M2 Zero boards and similar form factor...
After all those board may need MORE power to run, but they could help in doing some slightly better emulation compared to a stock RPi0 W.
What are your opinions in regards of this?

dont quote me on this as its mostly from memory but im sure that the bananna pi has a raspberry pi 3 compatible gpio layout taking this into account it should....'technicly' be plug and play with a banana pi this isnt taking into account any script alterations required for shutdown scripts etc etc but hardware wise it should work fine

posting this in case anyone will need help with safe shutdown script in future: https://howchoo.com/g/ndc3njbhytv/retroflag-gpi-setup#install-the-safe-shutdown-script
people are reporting it doesn't work properly, but it looks like following this guide helps
also, I was lucky I subscribed on howchoo.com to get notification email when GPi goes on sale. it was 3:20 AM when the notification woke me up and I actually got out of bed to order it. looks like it sold out again few minutes later

I was watching this with a lot of excitement! At first I was disappointed that I got to Amazon within an hour of release, only to find that it was already sold out. Now I'm more disappointed, and a little angry, to find that someone apparently scalped the product and is selling it for an ever-increasing inflated price. Currently it's going for $175... what's wrong with people? :/

I tried buying one and it kept saying my cart was empty when I would click the add button. I'll just have to wait for the next batch. Amazon needs a better system here.
