Nvidia Shield TV as case?

Is there any way I can get hold of a Nvidia Shield TV Shell (with the green LEDS still working) which would fit the Pi?
(in the UK) As I really want a cool looking media centre.
Thanks,
Sam

How to legally get movies on Kodi? Also how to Kodi Krypton?

How can I legally get movies on Kodi. LEGALLY as I do not want to break the law, but I think a media centre would be cool, without spending hundreds *cough cough* apple tv *cough cough*. Also, how do I install Kodi Krypton on the Pi? I love the new skin. Side note, I'm in the UK, and I can't rip mov...

Re: Gamegirl: the retro console done right

It's a console. But half of the project will be improving the software. For example by adding a way to transfer the games with USB (OTG). For cover arts, I think some work has already been done: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gQ20ApCqjQc I don't know how open GameMaker is. Maybe the HTML5 version ...

Raspbian Cluster

How do I create a cluster, and for good gameplay performance, do I need 2 Pi 3's or should I just use 1, or can I add a Pi Zero on for extra performance(For 3D games)? Do clusters have to be on top of each other (I need it to be next to each other).

Re: Gamegirl: the retro console done right

So is this an OS, or a console? Also, for games created by ourselves, will we be able to add cover art, and please include Java and support for PyGame games. But maybe some emulators would be nice with offline(cached) cover art + metadata and will it have support for GameMaker games? (e.g Undertale,...

On NOOBS, I cannot seem to use WiFi, but on Raspbian it works, and on Ethernet, NOOBS works and shows the list of downloadable Operating Systems. Is there any workaround?
