Re: Reading OBDII Trouble Codes & Descriptions Using Python On A Raspberry Pi

Rumee,

In GitHub you can view the commits to the project:

https://github.com/BirchJD/PiOBDII/commits/master

Get the code at one of the early commits, I think it was the second commit when I was just pulling back trouble codes.

Re: Raspberry Pi PSP Analog Thumb Joystick Driver For MAME

For this project I used a composite monitor. They are very cheap and use no GPIO pins, but the definition isn't great if you want high resolution.

Search on eBay for "reverse LCD", sort by price lowest first, and you'll find some.
