Frequently Asked Questions

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?
The only soldering required is to solder the battery extension cable to the charging board.
Do you have an installation guide?
I have added a pre-check and installation guide to the download area.
Can I use my Game Boy cartridges?
Unfortunately not. The Zega Mame Boy kit replaces the original GameBoy PCBs
Can I use AA batteries?
No, this kit uses a lithium rechargeable battery than can be supplied with the kit (within the UK), or you can choose to purchase your own
I live outside the UK, where can I buy the batteries?
I purchase all my batteries from Aliexpress. You can order them here. I usually buy them in packs of 10 to save a few extra pennies.
Buttons are registering intermittantly?
If you find you are having to press hard to register an input I would recommend cleaning all the buttons contants and membranes with isopropyl alchohol.
