    Does anybody know how to implement the "joy-mouse" mapping? I have played around and got it working with SCUMMVM, but it only works if I ONLY call this mapping on boot. I lose the dual joy-con/keyboard mapping. I would like to call this using the runcommand-onstart.sh script only for SCUMMVM programs (and possibly DOSBOX), but I can't find a way to make it play nice

    It's only digital signals (up, down, left, right). The joystick mapper only maps as keyboard presses, not as real analog axis

    I'm still at this; how is the Raspberry Pi 3B being powered through the PowerBoost 1000C? The Pi 3 needs 2A at max usage (which admittedly isn't all the time), but I'm getting the Low Voltage symbol almost constantly whenever I'm playing - anybody solve this? I see some solutions would be to use an alternate power source, like an Anker 13000, but that doesn't seem like a very clean solution

    Hi everyone, I've tried building this project directly, and there are a few points I would like to pass on to future builders.As is, this project is based around Retropie 4.3; unless cfoote7 ever updates it, as of April 2018, it MUST be based on Jessie and not Stretch to use as-is. This project will NOT work with a new Raspberry Pi 3B+. Even with a regular 3B, if you initially base your build on Stretch, all you will get is a black screen with a flashing cursor.Next, the build instruction seem like a "hodge-podge" from Adafruit's PiGrrl 2, mixed with a few random notes here and there. When built exactly as these instructions list, it didn't really work for me. I have documented my changes to the wiring diagram, and list them here:http://www.keepandshare.com/doc12/vie...

I have documented my changes to the wiring diagram, and list them here:http://www.keepandshare.com/doc12/view.php?id=2460...Finally, the case STL file has been redesigned, closing some of the unnecessary gaps, adding standoffs for the PAM8302, adding a speaker mount and a mount for the headphone jack.http://www.keepandshare.com/doc12/view.php?id=2460...Even after this, I'm still having minor issues with this project; using all of the original parts list, the Raspberry Pi and the Touchscreen both issue "low voltage" and "under-voltage" warnings. Also, the joy cons never respond when choosing "two-player" mode from cfoote's selection menu.Hopefully my experiences following this project will help others :)
