Re: GPIO limit on gamepads

Thanks for your replies. I'll do some more research and get back to you :)

Again, sorry for my noobishness, my computing background never extended to the electronics side of it and this is a whole new level for me.

Re: GPIO limit on gamepads

I'm with plugwash "An alternative approach may be to use a microcontroller to scan the pads and then pass the data over a common interface (uart serial is probablly easiest) to the Pi. The advantage of this approach is you don't have to worry about linux messing up your timing." Add a cheap microco...

Re: GPIO limit on gamepads

Thanks for the reply :) Forgive me for I am a noob to the uber technical side of such things, what is meant by having GPIO peripherals 'scan'? As regards voltage, is this a setting that can be changed in the boot config file? I also have a bluetooth dongle connected for Sixaxis PS3 controllers in ca...

GPIO limit on gamepads

I'm building a Pi NES and was inspired by initmaster's NES build that had NES, SNES and Genesis controller ports on it. My question is, is it feasible to connect 3 sets of ports to the GPIO pins on a B+ or would I need an extender/hub? I'm sure there would be voltage issues. I'm also connecting the ...

Re: 01/16 UltraSlim = Retro/Gaming/Q3|XBMC 12/13|Desktop + m

Just tried on my Model B+ 20140929_210147.jpg Works for me! My issue before this very kind update from rromo12 was that it wouldn't detect a keyboard upon first boot (and thus couldn't start the install process, so thumbs were twiddled) I love the short boot time (except the video, but that can be c...

Since no one had done so yet and I had free time I went a head and did an rpi-update for those of you trying to get this on the B+. I did a quick test on my B+ and it was booting so it should work but I didn't test much. This is a 2gb image. Ultraslim_1.6_B+.7z http://www.mediafire.com/download/d5k...

Looking forward to UltraSlim 2.0. Hopefully the non-detecting keyboard error will be fixed for the Model B+.

Excellent work all round :)

Re: Introduce yourself!

Hello there, my name's James and I've just recently discovered the Raspberry Pi phenomenon. I'm a complete newbie at Linux and general command line computing so I'll be on here a lot looking for helpful snippets provided by you kind people. At the moment I'm working on a Pi NES (which many people ha...
