Retro Pi

Retro Pi

RetroPie allows you to turn your Raspberry Pi, ODroid C1/C2, or PC into a retro-gaming machine.  I have been experimenting with this.  I seem to have got further than my previous attempt.

I have added a few zx spectrum games, which load, but I can’t play, need to map the game controller to the keyboard mapping properly so that games can be played via my game controller.

I have also found free ROMS for custom games of Pong and PacMan for the SNES.  So far I can play these fine.

Retro Pi also supports games such as Doom and Minecraft Pi.  Early days yet but probably good enough to demo at a future jam.  There is interest in this.

The system works really well.  I have identified a need for a USB SNES controller as I this has better support as do other official console controllers.  So something for my shopping list.

Next Jam 12th October to include discussion on VPNs, more details in a post later this week.

Happy hacking in the meantime.
