Is an aligning bracket included? Can one be purchased? Is there a recommended way to modify screen bezel to accommodate larger screen? Thanks!
This product really changes the Gameboy experience. My favorite part has got to be the pallette and brightness control in place of the contrast wheel. My only problem was the fact that I was sent some adhesive which made it extremely difficult to get the screen correctly positioned without breaking it since there are no brackets and once the adhesive has bonded with the screen, you cannot remove it without some serious patience and a heat gun.
The FunnyPlaying kit is top notch, but I do have some complaints. Having to remove part of the screen bezel was a pain. The RS/HHL shells are not made to account for this. Having to use the gray screen (versus the black one that came with the RS/HHL shell) that came with this kit ruined the aesthetic I was going for too. Also, the lack of a purchasable aligning bracket made this more finicky to get it lined up just right.
Easy install, great quality!
I can’t go back to playing game boy games any other way now. Hoping for something similar for GBC soon.
installation of this screen was very straight forward using the ips ready shell. be careful of the button/switch/jog that replaces the standard contrast wheel, it is fairly easy to bend it and break a solder joint. luckily it wasn’t too difficult to fix. also note that this screen needs a larger bezel to go with it otherwise you will not be able to see the entire play field. as far as i know at this time, Aug-2020, HandHeldLegend doesn’t carry the correct size bezel. but that's not really an issue with the screen itself.
