Nice project ! Regarding the two buttons in the back, I am assuming they come from the SNES gamepad's L & R shoulder buttons... However, you have round whole apertures in the back of this case, whereas these buttons from the SNES gamepad shoulder are more like a "rectangle with rounded edges"...

So where are you getting the "round" button covers, for these back buttons ? Thanks !

Hi, you are right... But I absolutely don't remember how I manage that Oo... I think I took boards from the snes gamepad, and replace the plastic button by thoses one : https://www.adafruit.com/product/1009

Please update parts list links!

Could you update your BOM links? I followed the one for the screen and one other and both go to blank Amazon addresses. More might be broken as well. Thanks for all the hard work. This looks like a great project!

Thanks a lot,links updated

I can't find any cupcade adapter, does someone got an idea where to find it or what I can switch it with ?

The board it´s open source, so, the thing that I did was to send the files to a shop of pcb boards and buy some. Then I soldered the components by myself

I somehow got stuck at the point of the joystick. The joystick doesn't work at all, and I am not sure why or what can I do.
Can anybody help me ?

If you talk about the big joystick, then go back on details you can find on the Adafruit link. I just followed up instructions on this website. Be careful on wiring.
If you talk about the small one on the side, careful on wiring and espacially on the ground. Then it can only work by replacing files I give you on the download section. Without replacing files, it cannot work 'cause Retropie would not know there is new buttons available.

I mean the analog joystick.
Yes I copied all the files on the disk already.
I don't understand what you mean by the "adafruit link". I am looking here "https://www.adafruit.com/product/512"...

I am attaching few photo how my project looks like so far....

You have bad soldered the black wire of the joystick, if you see the other side of the board, black and white cables need to be soldered to the switch and yours is not

Hi! This lcd works with 12v and the powerboost is 5v. Any problem? Thanks.

Actually no problems. I thought first to add a step up but it finally works great without, just plugged in 5v.

Perfect, thanks Sr. :)

Awesome job and also appreciate the very detailed instructions!

My pleasure. I have to check a last thing, I think I did make a change on the config.txt to fit the screen perfectly, not sure. I'll edit the instruction if so.

Great project. Surely a lot of work. Nice.
