    Anyone use this?

    Buy a Pi, install a case, PSU, some heatsinks and a fan, and then buy a microsd and a usb controller, you should be able to get the lot for less than ?100

    Then download or build a retropie image, write it to the card, boot up the pi and voila, you have a retro gaming machine ready to go!!

    I have all the classics, NES, SNES, Master System, Genesis, N64 etc all with thousands of roms/games.

    Did someone not make this thread last year sometime? Or maybe the year before? Was it you or someone else? Pretty sure I posted in it... been taking my older boy along to the Raspberry Jams in Manchester for the last coupla years.. though obvs not since COVID hit, knocked up an amiga emu a while back. Didn't use a heatsink or cooling though, although TBF I wasn't planning on keeping the thing together or running it that long, more just an afternoon bit of 'bonding time' with Jr.

        This is from 2014/15 and last tinkered with in 2016. I call it Slaystation. It's the same **** but in horror theme. Horror graphics, horror or at least Halloween roms, horror music/sounds, horror everything. Started out as a dedicated PS1 survival horror box and evolved as per locals input.

        I used recall but they're all the damn same. The point was because every case I saw was boring, collections were boring, themes were boring, and I wanted to show a different way of doing things. The idea was more focused than a general gaming console....because a box is boring as **** and just having mario for nintendo and sonic for sega and **** is boring as ****. Originally I planned to do sci-fi in a space ship case and maybe pokemon in a pokeball and **** like that but since no one gave a **** about Slaystation **** doing sci-fi, world can suck my dick.

        I got shown if you don't put **** in a cube, don't gather just the basic library roms, and don't use basic themes no one actually gives a ****. silly me, thinking I could artists to spruce up my ****ty **** after they saw my concept.

        Anyway, videos:

        Use your arrow keys and skip around in the video otherwise I show way too much and it's boring as ****. But I'd like to point out at the end of the video I show my glowing version of the demon skull in the dark. You should look at it. Or don't and **** you but I think it's neat. Outside of that, UI, bit of sounds, all there, gameplay, even the rom I used. Try to find that rom anywhere online. Go a head and show me your emulated run of the Lost Boy on NES.

          Possibly in the lounge, i can't remember.

          Heatsinks and fans are probably only needed if you overclock, but i installed them anyway.

          Apparently the latest version of the Pi runs 64 games a lot smoother than previous versions, i need to pick one up.

            Yeah I got one of these (built by somebody else) is good to have so many games to fuck around on, especially if you have people round and want to play through a bunch of old boxing/football/wwf games
