Zega Mame Gear FAQs

Can I use my own image?

Technically yes, but you would need to install all the required drivers manually for the LCD, GPIO input and audio output yourself. I do not support 3rd party images. If there are any issues while using your own image, I'm afraid I cannot help. Why not do it the easy way and download my pre-configured image.

Is there any soldering involved?

None at all. The kit comes pre-assembled ready to use.

Do you have an installation guide?

I have added a pre-check and installation guide to the download area.

Can I use my Game Gear cartridges?

Unfortunately not. The Zega Mame Gear kit replaces the original game gear PCBs

I live outside the UK, where can I buy the batteries?

I purchase all my batteries from Aliexpress. You can order them here. The Zega Mame Gear can use 2 lithium batteries but will happily run on one. See more info under Recommend Batteries

Is the LCD included?


Can I use AA batteries?

No, this kit uses 1 or 2 Lithium batteries than can be supplied with the kit (within the UK), or you can choose to purchase your own

Are Roms included?

All new images are created as 'Base Images' and no Roms are included.
