ROMNI - My 3D Printed New tiny RecalboxArcade :)

    Hello

    good projet :D , screen too small for me,
    recalbox 4.1 https://archive.recalbox.com/updates/v1.0/unstable/

    Thx Acris !
    I am waiting for the stable one. But but maybe i will test the unstable for curiosity sake. lol.

    I agree that  the screen is not for everyone. But it´s a design/cost option. It´s very hard to find bigger screens, not SO big to have to change the entire design/power scheme, that has composite input and it´s cheap. That screen i am using is around $25... And i live in Brazil, so it´s not easy to get anything i want to + the import taxes can be like 100% the price + shipping... So, the decition has a lot of constraints. But it´s a nice screen for it´s price, and it´s bigger than my dingoo a320 screen. If i am able to find a good Cost Vs enefit on a 5 inch screen that would be perfect. And as it´s a 3D printed case designed by me it´s just a matter of modifying the 3D model and printing the top part again. 
    
    
     BTW...Any clue about my Composite/HDMI question ? Is it possible to auto-switch to hdmi output when a HDMI cable is present ? (Even if i need to reboot it) ? 
     BTW 2 : I don´t know why my posts here are being showed on a black box... :(


  • More Pics ! :) BTW this project is not 100% finished on it´s design. It´s the Prototype #6 (6 case printed until now). So there´s some minor updates/differences between some pics. :)
    This is the prototype #6 :

    Some shots of the new Back with removable plate, so, i can use any different board, and have a more futureproof design. I just need to reprint the red plate to fit a new configuration for the board ports. :)

    Hello @Marcelo-Souza

    I have the same problem to buy products.

    for your question hdmi :

    try these :

    mount -o remount,rw /boot
    edit this filenano /boot/config.txt
    add this line : hdmi_force_hotplug=1

    when you start without hdmi cable, normally it's ok
    et when you plug hdmi cable, normally it's boot to TV screen



  • Thanks for the Tip. I will try it now ! :)

  • Hi ! Nice game&watch arcade cab ^^

    For your question regarding composite/hdmi auto select ... Hard to tell, i'm not sure anyobe ever succeeded here



  • I am back to this posts. Just to post a possible "solution" for my obvious question... A way to Auto-Switch between HDMI<>AV... It seems that this guy made a script that Detects the hdmi plug and switch the config settings...

    Hope it works ...

    @acris Hey.

    I´ve changed the lines with hdmi_Force_hotplug=1 and then it worked, the recabox and games apearead over hdmi (video and audio) but now , even after unplugin the hdmi and turning off and on the system again, it´s sticked with hdmi output... The monitor i am using only turns on if some signal enters over the composite in... so it seems that pi isn´t sending composite signal anymore after i unplugged the hdmi cable. I will reverse the config edition to check...

    I love it all very much



  • Finally reach the beta stage with my project. :) Hope you guys like it.
    Now i need to build a custom theme, since the latest recalbox has "SMALL SCREEN" themes, but the gamelist font stills VERY tiny... Unreadable. :(

    You can edit the themes and increase the font size very easy.
    By the way, I also find it very nice, and having some 4.1" compo spare screens, I think about it.



  • It looks just amazing.



  • Much better than the neogeo mini !
    And you can have all the neogeo games collection in it ;)


  • Themer

    @marcelo-souza beautiful !

    how are the buttons ? I've always wondered of those kind of mini buttons were and felt as good as the standard ones

    @voljega if it is small "service buttons"... they are very hard; and it is difficult to play with.
