Re: Emulators?

What a coincidence, my name is Ben too! :lol: Anyway, back to your question. Mame (I believe SDL) and AdvanceMAME have been ported to the Pi with not much better performance. There is also N64 and Nes emus in the works. And I think, don't quote me on this, but I believe a guy is working porting Fina...

Re: Yet another lego case...

A wee bit over the top, but it looks okay. Hey, at least you have the Pi to put it in.

Re: RetroArch Emulator Frontend

I've spent the last week porting RetroArch, a multi-emulator frontend to the Raspberry Pi. My port is intended to run from the command line, with no X server running. It uses EGL/OpenVG to render directly to a fullscreen framebuffer. So far, the following features work: * Fullscreen video * Keyboar...

Re: Mupen64Plus - N64 Emulator for the Pi

Wow, sounds great! IIRC there was one working reasonably well on the Sony PSP (333MHz MIPS R4000) so I'm looking forward to trying this out once graphics are working :) Yeah, but even this port was pretty basic. I have run Super Mario 64 on my 3000 and the sound is still rather choppy. I think once...

Re: Windows CE

Actually, this has been mentioned several times almost since day 1. Can't seem to search for "windows ce" though. IIRC, the issues were that - nobody's really interested in paying to port it, document it, support it. Especially not the Foundation. - the benefits are few, mostly "it looks like Windo...

Windows CE [obsolete]

I am actually pretty surprised no one has mentioned this operating system for the Raspberry pi, but I suppose I will go ahead and do so... For those who do not know, Windows CE is an ARM version of Windows that works on cellphones, PDAs, tablets and those cheepo laptops you see around at CVS by Sylv...

Re: MAME bartop arcade

Advancedmame is as slow in most roms as XMame. Damn. Well that pops my bubble. The thing that gets me is that I have a home-brewified PSP 3000 that can run a whole pocketful of arcade games via seperate Neo Geo, CPS1/2 and Final Burn Alpha emus. The Maximum clockspeed for the psp is about 333Mhz, s...

Wii remotes are bluetooth and I have a cheap dongle that already works so thats the plan.


Oh, okay. I had no idea (never used a Wii in my life). Hm. That sounds like it would work. I would love to see how that turns out.

I"m thinking of using one of these as a base.  Wii Arcade Stick


Hmmm. Looks legit, but how exactly do you plan to connect the stick so that it interacts with the rpi? Is there some sort of adapter?

<t>As far as buttons go, I was planning on doing something with the I-Pac controller, or perhaps using a USB game-pad, but I am undecided on the matter. The pros of the I-PAC is that it is solder free, but from what I have seen on the web, they can run pretty expensive compared to other methods. The...
