Dmg Game Boy Color Mod

No matter what you’re looking for or where you are in the world, our global marketplace of sellers can help you find unique and affordable options. Let’s get started! May 09, 2017  Is this the backlight kit that Game Boy Color fans have been waiting for? Kitsch-Bent backlit kit product page: Jul 15, 2017  Since my RGB backlit gameboy controller business is getting off the ground I though I would get a cheap junker DMG off Ebay to make a prototyping and test unit with so I can develop future.

I just started my CGZ but with a GameBoy Color.
For this mod I want to keep the case as brand new as possible. I will not add any more button. A+B are enough for me, but I'm sure there are enough place to add them.
What pieces I got :
- GameBoy Color (the blue one)
- Raspberry Pi Zero
- 2.5 Adafruit TFT Screen. The 3.5 is too big for the GameBoy Color. It can probably fit in the case but you have to move the volume pot and the power switch.
- Powerboost 1000 C
- Audio amplifier from Adafruit
- Speaker from Adafruit
- GameBoy cartridge
What I need now :
- The battery
- Some small stuff like small button for the display, etc...
What I don't use :
- Teensy LC to keep space
- USB hub
- More button
I did not start as Wermy because I want to be sure every part can work with each other before to cut the case.
First Step : The screen
So the screen PCB for the 2.5 is not the same of the 3.5. But the chip which should be removed is also on this board at the bottom right of the photo

So i removed it

And link the power + ground to old place of the chip, like the tutorial.

Then I linked everything to the raspberry. But watch out, to link the composite to the raspberry, I had to link the yellow to the square, and the white to the circle. This is the opposite of Wermy. When I did as Wermy the screen turned on (the backlight) but nothing appeared on the screen.

And finally, I linked the raspberry to the power and wouuuuuaaa, it works.

This step is validated for me. I'm already happy.
The next step will be the buttons. I think I got an advantage to use a GameBoy Color, because there is a lot of testing patches on the PCB, So I will not have to scratch the PCB
