Use PyGame Library to Play Game Sounds with Raspberry Pi

In this session we are going to use Raspberry Pi and the PYGAME functions to make a sound board. In simple terms, we are going to connect few buttons to the Raspberry Pi GPIO pins and when these buttons are pressed Raspberry Pi plays audio files stored in its memory. These audio files can be played one by one or they can all be played together. In other words you can press one or multiple buttons at the sam ...

RetroPie GameCube

The plan was easy - enclose Raspberry PI in the GameCube’s housing. I figured out the layout of internals beforehand on my own - so there was nothing on paper nor from the Internet. The entire project came to life as it was being built, but everything planned had to be organized anew. I need to add that I have no clue about electrics, electronics nor about soldering. I learned most of it during those few ni ...

RasPi Two-Player Arcade Coffee Table

Here is my version of the Raspberry Pi arcade coffee table. I got the idea from other great instructables on here and wanted to share my experience with the build. The table can play games from multiple video game eras including NES, SNES, Sega, Playstation, and N64 (N64 requires the Rpi 2). Protip: if you are building 2+ controllers, be sure to install the hidden gem Super Mario War and get ready for heate ...

Build an arcade machine powered by raspberry pi for a low budget

So I was inspired by the projects I saw online like the NaCade and the Porta-Pi, and wanted to build somthing similar. Problem was, as a 13 year old kid, I don't really have that much money to spend, apart from gift cards. So instead of trying to follow a guide and save some more money, I build this thing! This is for a good project for people who don't have the cash to buy cast acrylic or ply wood sheets, ...

How to Build a Handheld, Raspberry Pi-Powered Game Console

The Raspberry Pi is a great little mini-computer for playing classic video games from your childhood. But, thanks to its small size, it's also possible to turn it into a portable handheld game console that plays your favorite titles, from NES to N64. I call it "The eNcade". The eNcade is a Kickstarter project up for pre-order, but with a little engineering and soldering skills it's not crucially difficult t ...

Raspberry Pi in a NES Case – Part 1 – Wiring up the front panel and external connectors

Raspberry Pi is a great project computer, it's cheap ($35), runs Linux (or Risc OS) and has lots of resources available aroudn it.

The goals for this project were: Build an emulator box to play NES/SNES games Use the original NES case Use ...

Using A Joystick On The Raspberry Pi Using An MCP3008

While browsing eBay looking at electronics stuff I found a few interesting items to connect to the Pi. The first item was a small 2-axis analogue joystick. They are similar to the thumb-sticks you would find on a modern games console controller. These modules are cheap and easy to connect to a circuit so I decided to get one. The outputs are analogue so you need a mechanism for the Pi to read these voltages ...
