Woozle's GBA Consolizer
« on: January 16, 2019, 07:56:10 pm »
Anyone else here pre-order this kit before the holiday break?

This is something I've been hoping for awhile now. It's basically going to replace my Gamecube w/ gameboy player that's running hacked software (for fixing the input lag), since I only keep the GC around for GBA games these days.

It's also nice that it outputs HDMI, so one less need for upscaler support. I've been slowly phasing out the need to deal with RGB and upscaling.
Here's a list of features from the page:

Code: [Select]
Fine-tuned video output
720p digital video output**
GBA video at 60 Hz Vsync, absolutely no stutter or screen tearing!
Direct digital 4:4:4 RGB video from GBA
4x scale for GBA games, letterboxed in 1280720 frame
5x scale for GB/GBC games, fills screen vertically with pillar boxes on side
No input lag.
Direct digital audio sent over HDMI at 48 KHz
On Screen Display (OSD) menu accessible by pushing select + down, featuring:
Adjustable strength scan lines and grid lines
32+ Game Boy color palettes, adjustable in game (PICS HERE)
Gamma/color correction provided via Shader menu option (PICS HERE)
Store user video settings in flash memory
Controller support
Wired SNES controller
Compatible with 8Bitdo Retro Receiver for use with:
8Bitdo wireless SNES controller
Wii U Pro controller
Switch Pro controller
3D printed enclosure
Full console conversion, LCD is replaced with HDMI module
USB powered, under 500 mA current draw. Can be powered from TV USB port.

I think this first batch is supposed to be shipping out in April, but I'm not sure when he's opening up another run.
