Jeroen Domburg from Wizard Module Has developed to the extreme raspberry pie-Powered Game Boy handheld computer. DMGPlus has Raspberry Pi Zero W In the original Game Boy DMG-01, but the excitement did not end there.It can play games with original cartridges-even custom cartridges, yes, including doom.
some The best Raspberry Pi project Using the original hardware, the DMGPlus project takes it to the extreme. We haven’t seen too many projects that provide so much support for real components. From the outside, it looks 99% unaffected, except for small changes to the volume wheel.
It uses actual buttons, housing, link ports, and the most impressive original LCD screen. It can be powered by four AA batteries, but Domburg also includes an option for wired power through barrel connectors. You can use ordinary Game Boy cassettes, so your classic games will run like original hardware, but put in one of Domburg’s special cassettes, and you can play SNES classic Super Mario World, Sega Genesis’s Sonic the Hedgehog or PC Classic doom!
To complete this project, Domburg created a custom 4-layer PCB to replace the main board in DMG-01. According to Domburg, it is essentially a substitute and does not require any wild shell modifications to adapt.
FPGA is needed to develop the cartridge interface. It is responsible for the Nintendo logo and one of my favorite startup sounds –ba-ding! Don’t let me input the startup sound of the GameCube, but as far as the 3D platform is concerned, DMGPlus can play 3D games with a custom cassette.In the video, Domburg shared an impressive game demo doom On handheld devices.
This project took several years to complete, but a complete Project breakdown Anyone can use it to understand in more detail how the operation works.In the meantime, we are just thumbs up here Tetris.
