Good evening to all
I am new to this but very passionate about games / emulators of 80s/90s
I have an arcade cabinet. I am planning to use 2 players buttons, 1 lightgun (with sensor), and wheel/knob. i need 5 usb ports but rasberry PI 4 has 4 .can i use a multi usb hub in one of these ports so i will be able to connect what i need? can i setup rasberry PI with launch box?

Yes, you can add powered and bus-powered USB hubs to a Pi.

"Launch box" - No idea.
