    Quick update inbetween

    Alltogether around 30 so far. 1610206009 Oh, it doesn't have to do with the number. When I'm assembling units, I am combining the same types. So from order numbers 23 - 50 (which is what I'm currently assembling), I first count what I need and then assemble the units accordingly. So, for...

    Quick update inbetween

    Some might've wondered why not all units I planned to ship until yesterday have shipped yet - and some followed IRC or our Discord channel and could imagine what the reason was. During assembly, I noticed that about 10% of the units didn't want to boot up after they had been powered down. I...

    Tales of an Assembly

    Indeed, it is.

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    That was for a password reset. You probably placed your order as guest - so we know your email address. But that's not an account.

    That's perfect, please do contact me when it's done :) I can either simply resell it or handle the production as well (paying license fees) :)

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    This can be related to some weird audio mixing / channel mapping. I already mentioned to aTc during the tester that it sounds as if the audio is coming from both speakers whenever I only play from the left one (as I'm sine waves for testing, this could've been my imagination and I've not further...

    Yes :) Ah, if you don't have an account, you won't receive an eMail, yeah :)

    You can enter any adress you like when placng the final order. Password resets usually are sent out - but please check your Spam folder.

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    Yes, that can be the issue. The volume daemon is very simple at the moment and needs optimization (deadzone, polling, handling ALSA / PulseAudio, etc.... I'll post more about that. That's why I mentioned to open AlsaMixer. If the volume wheel is the issue, you will see the AlsaMixer slider moving :)

    Oh. And I remember there's some low-power mode for the audio stream. It can be enabled / disabled in Alsamixer as well (it's that hpll or similar controller, forgot the name). Maybe that can cause such issues. I'll also try on the units I have here.

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    Hm, interesting. Please check the following: 1. Test if volume changes if you press on the case (not a key). The speakers use spring contacts - maybe they don't have a proper contact on your unit (which changes if you press on the case). 2. Open Alsamixer to see if the volume actually changes.

    My first impressions of the Pyra

    AAhh, well, power supplies can indeed cause such effects. What actually causes such "whining" is usually vibrating capacitors. If they hit the resonance frequency of the PCB, the PCB starts to vibrate which turns into the noise you can hear. Power Supplies (especially cheaper ones) can cause...

    Should I have received my final order eMail already?

    Not really, as I would handle that afterwards :) The units ordered today will start to ship on Thursday (tomorrow is a holiday in Bavaria) and the last one should ship Friday.

    That is pretty cool! Actually, could this be changed easily to work with the GameBoy Color? McWill's LCD Mod includes a charging mod as well - however, it does not replace the full power circuit of the GBC, which is pretty flakey. My own unit doesn't start anymore when I add the Charging mod and...

    It will work but I'll just cancel and refund the second one :) 1. If you pre-ordered both at the same time, you can get both. 2. Yes, as long as not too many do that (due to failure rates, I need to order more boards than I need anyways, so a few changes are no issues).
