Hi there people!
A few weeks ago I ordered a Raspberry Pi b+, USB single female slots, cooling devices for the RPi b+, SNES extensions cables, 32 GB micro SD card, etc…
The plan is to get everything inside an american model cartridge.
I first started emptying the the cartridge with a file and knife and then I made space for the SNES female controller connectors.
I had to remove the ethernet adapter and the 2 double USB slots to get inside the cartridge. My plan is to solder 3 single USB slots in a plate and link it to the original USB. The fourth USB slot will be for a tiny WLAN adapter, also inside the cartridge.
Now I’m running out of space and I don’t think it would be enough space for the RetroPie GPIO adapter.
How dangerous is it to connect the 2 SNES controllers directly to the GPIO?
Has someone linked 2 controllers directly to the GPIO? How?
I’ve got a similar project going, but I didn’t think to remove the USB and Ethernet jacks. I thought if I cut slots out for them that the Pi2 would fit, but the solder tips on the bottom of the PCB make it so I’m about 2-3mm too tight inside the SNES cart.
I wish they sold a Pi2 with single height USB jacks.
Any update on yours? I’d love to see the end result of how you got everything to fit.
