Before I Buy

Fri Dec 18, 2015 1:09 pm

I would like to start a project and make a Nintendo 64 but I'd like to hookup a 5" screen and also would like to hook it up to my USB powerbank. Here's the list of what I believe I will need for this project:

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00MARDJ ... YR2W3VAJ0A

But my biggest concern was if the powerbank I already had would be enough to power it all. The model number is CGP104-B. It's a 2 amp output.

I'd like to be able to take this to work or out of a trip and just play my childhood favorites whenever I like.

Thanks for the help in advance.

That powerbank should power all those items OK. I'd estimate somewhere between 4 and 6 hours run time.

It's cool that you want to retro game and make a N64 but the N64 replica will not work well, because the emulator can only play a limited amount of games.

Here is the current N64 emulator https://github.com/ricrpi/mupen64plus
By thinking like an engineer you can create a raspberry pi.

I got the PI model B, B+ and PI 2 model B.
When will I get the A? I don't know.
