I want to take an old SNES case (US version) and put a RP with retropie inside.
Here's what I want to accomplish:
-Functional SNES power and reset buttons
-Functional controller ports
-I've seen some mods like this where the ports are sort of hacked into the back of the console. I'd like to make them look decent/professional.
I have personally built several PCs and have a decent knowledge of emulation in general. My DIY and soldering/electronics knowledge is only slightly above average, however. I'd like the build to be as cheap and easy to make as possible. If there's a way to avoid soldering that would be even better, but I'm not against learning new things.
1. Is there an online resource for this type of project? I have seen them in the past but apparently I'm not Googling the right terms because I haven't found a ton of examples to go by.
2. What's the best power supply to use?
3. Can the pi handle a 128 gb card?
4. What's the simplest way to make the buttons and controller ports work?
5. Do I need to worry about any cooling, passive or otherwise?
I would be grateful for any guidance on how to accomplish my goals with a build like this, since it's new territory for me!
