I apologise in advance if this topic has been discussed elsewhere on the forum (and I'm sure it has, but I wasn't sure where to look) but I'm looking for some help with building my own bartop arcade.
I'm completely new to the Raspberry Pi world, electronics and digital making etc, so I wanted to know if there is a very comprehensive, go to guide that I could follow to build my project? I've been wanting to make one for a while now and plan to give it a go over the summer holidays.
I have an idea of what I'd need, but I was unsure of two things:
- How would I go about wiring the buttons and arcade stick to the Pi? Is there a HAT or PCB of some sort that I have to use?
If I use a HDMI monitor as a display, will I still need external speakers to have sound?
Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please forgive me for being a super n00b, but I'm told the Pi/Makers Community are very accepting of folk like me! Thank you!
