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

What a lot of Sanwa Denshi buttons ๐Ÿ”˜ there are in this Monster Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ๐Ÿ˜€

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!

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

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...

Hooking up the wiring loom in the Monster ๐Ÿ‘น Joystick ๐Ÿ•น๏ธ mini

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

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...

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

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

I โ™ฅ the cases 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“ก

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˜€

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

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...

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

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

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