Raspberry Pi Zero game console for use with PICO-8 The hardware and software is sill under development!


Rev. 01. board error:

  • Error: Speaker- an audio amp. output- connected to GND.
    Solution: Do not wire speaker and audio amp. output (PAD5 and PAD6) to PCB, please connect speaker to audio amp. output via wire.
    Drawback: Headphone connector not working
  • Error: ADC input direct connected to batterie A result in applying ~0.6 V to 3.3 V supply if batterie is attached and device is off.
    Solution: Do not assamble MCP3202 (IC1).
    Drawback: No batterie monitoring possible.


  • Multiple display options - 160x128 or 320x240
  • Audio (speaker / handphone)
  • Classic dual NiMH AA-Batterie supply
  • Batterie monitoring
  • GPIOs (LED bar)
  • Vibration motors
  • Low cost

OS installation

  • Download latest Raspjamming-Image and flash to SD card
  • Unzip ( to boot partiton (Executabe needed pico-8/pico8) from
  • Activate line 'include Pi-XO.txt' in config.txt file
  • Activate correct Display Option 1-3 including resolution in Pi-XO.txt file
    • Display 1: 320x240 Display mounted far right side
    • Display 2: 160x128 Display mounted right side
    • Display 3: 160x128 Display mounted left side


  • Fn-Button and Up/Down-Button: Volume control
  • Fn-Button and Left/Right-Button: Display brightness (Display 1 and 2)
  • Fn-Button and P-Button: Shutdown
