Fitted the Sanwa Denshi ball top joystick with 4-way restrictor ๐Ÿ’  (my preference) to the Monster Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ instagr.am/p/CDgXr_UADc-/

What a lot of Sanwa Denshi buttons ๐Ÿ”˜ there are in this Monster Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€ instagr.am/p/CDexbX2gqKX/

I've set up a Discord ๐Ÿ—ฃ for the community contributing to projects we started via YouTube ๐Ÿ“บ If you're a lover โค of ๐Ÿง or or retro gaming ๐Ÿ•น or making or just want to chat with like-minded people then we'd love for you to join us! discord.gg/vUsydfP

The 4 has been appropriately fitted with heat sinks and mounted to the base plate of the Monster Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ instagr.am/p/CDdvdlegFOb/

Time build the OG Monster Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ I'll put a 4 inside it to make a portable arcade emulator. First, peeling, peeling, peeling... instagr.am/p/CDcHx1KAsOR/

Hooking up the wiring loom in the Monster ๐Ÿ‘น Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ mini instagr.am/p/CDOqtQCAm_l/

Mounted the Sanwa Denshi ball top arcade joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ and buttons in the Monster Joystick Mini. More than robust enough to tackle "joystick waggler" games from the 80s ๐Ÿ’ช instagr.am/p/CDN9s4mAKDx/

Building a Monster Joystick mini ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ for my Commodore 64. Please talk amongst yourselves as I peel off the laser cutting โœ‚๏ธ protection... instagr.am/p/CDLaFZNgSz2/

Made some progress ๐Ÿ“ˆ on Retro Remix for the earlier this evening ๐Ÿ‘ Join me in the live stream ๐Ÿ“ก to see a mostly functional setup, working hardware acceleration and controller ๐ŸŽฎ support youtu.be/aEUt5s4127c

I've built some retro ๐Ÿ•น games consoles. I could install RetroPie, but I wouldn't learn ๐ŸŽ“ anything new. Join me in this live stream ๐Ÿ“ก where we'll start making a new remix for retro gamers ๐Ÿ˜Ž youtu.be/8DEduaz-GaQ

I โ™ฅ the cases @argon_forty@twitter.com make for the 4 and also their Fan ๐ŸŒ€ HAT. I've adapted the original Argon fan controller so it works with and in this video ๐Ÿ“น I'll demonstrate how to install and configure it. Join me in the live stream! ๐Ÿ“กyoutu.be/b1kG7XUvw5E

Here's the Argon Poly+ case, housing a 4 2GB with the Argon Fan HAT ๐ŸŒช๏ธ installed. There was even space for low profile heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ sink ๐Ÿ•ณ๏ธ on the SoC ๐Ÿ˜€ instagr.am/p/CDGYXqpgn9J/

Installed an Argon Fan HAT ๐ŸŽฉ on a 4 in an Argon Poly+ case required the addition of some stand-offs on the underside of the fan ๐ŸŒช๏ธ to prevent it sagging and bending the GPIO pins ๐Ÿ‘Œ instagr.am/p/CDE5wbaAR26/

Adding an Argon Fan HAT ๐ŸŽฉ to a 4 in an Argon Neo case. Should help keep temperatures ๐ŸŒฌ๏ธ under control, but the fan runs at 50% speed ๐ŸŒช๏ธ by default. So, time to port the fan controller to Ubuntu... instagr.am/p/CDEOBk-gdIV/

Really love โค๏ธ this Geekworm case for the A+ as access to all the I/O is preserved, including camera and touch screen, making it great for prototyping ๐Ÿ˜Ž instagr.am/p/CDDuaoYAWI8/

With two thermal pads, top and bottom, the Geekworm case for the 3A+ does a great job of passively transferring heat ๐Ÿ”ฅ away from the SoC, considering its low profile ๐Ÿ‘Œ instagr.am/p/CDCWFBcAPho/

I've found a nifty ultra thin metal case/heatsink from Geekworm for my Raspberry Pi 3A+ instagr.am/p/CDCMnQlgzbK/
