    Easy to Install, Great Effect!

    The rainbow slow change effect works really well, and shines through OEM D-pad/A&B membranes!

    Not working with IPS screen

    Impossible to enter into MODE’s
    My GBC has an IPS screen that using also « start » and « select » buttons.
    Maybe that is the reason why it’s impossible to enter into Mode’s.
    Sad 😞

    Thanks for your review. At the top of the install guide for this product we state the following: It has been brought to our attention that the controls for this kit may conflict with some IPS kits on the market. We recommend soldering to an alternate button for the 'Select' button on IPS kits such as 'Start' or 'Dpad Down' since the IPS kits typically require pressing both buttons simultaneously.

    This should resolve your issue.

    Very nice effect

    Wow completely changes the look of my GBC, I love it but sound problem when the intensity of the clarity is too high but at medium intensity, I hardly hear this disturbing sound anymore
