Some more stuff came in today for the project!
The only thing i am missing now is the special HDMI converter from mini to regular. I should just find it in walmart or something but the price online is cheaper then i see in stores so gonna wait it out one more day. It shows it’s been in raleigh but it’s been over 24 hours since the last update! Either they are backed up and just running a little late or it’s lost which i really hope it’s not!
Since the screwdriver came in today along with the heatsink i opened the case! Here is what the game looks like!
I am too amazed on how much data is on those memory box thingies for such a game where at that time it was a lot of data! Here is another pic of just the board by itself.
Now i did buy a heatsink which was really not neccesary to buy but i did anyways to see if it would work out. Ends out it sticks up just a tad too high that i am unable to close the NES case so that idea was scrapped but i am keeping the heatsink for another small project which I plan to make a mini computer with the Raspberry Zero that will be used just for basic stuff like word, excel and a possible photo shower program.
The rest of the stuff looks good so far. I didn’t take them out to pre allign and see what it looked like in the case. As long as i got the actual parts the guy did in the tutorial I should be fine. I wish i can test the OS but really need that HDMI adapter cause the only type i have is a regular and what were they thinking with putting a mini plug on the card? I don’t understand circuitry enough but understand enough of possible why. Bare in mind this is a fairly slower version of the other ones with at least a duel core atom processor. This is just a single core AMD chip that is clocked at around 1.2 ghrz which and this model has only 512 megs of ram which is enough for the game part.
The Raspberry Pi Zero came in today! Sadly one of the most vital pieces has yet arrived and that is the special HDMI plug that goes from mini to regular size and i need that just to see what i am doing! Other then that the OS should be good to go soon and I can do a presetup of all software before i put all the pieces into the NES Cartridge. I just hope the HDMI cable comes in tomorrow of the original plan of the assymble stream will have to be delayed but will keep yall posted!
Today some of the parts came in! The Mini USB Hub, The USB Controller, Power Supply for the Pi, and the 32GB SD card. I can attempt to preload the OS onto the SD card right away but have no way to test it until the actual Pi comes in which is still showing Thursday which i hope sooner but can’t really rush things. Sadly one item got delayed and now showing getting here next tuesday the 6th! I ordered 2 day shipping! I really hope it’s coming from overseas or something cause that was supposed to be coming with the other stuff that are bundled with it. This is one of the adapters vital to hooking up the mini USB Hub to the PI
