An A to Z Beginners Guide to Installing RetroPie on a Raspberry Pi #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Recently, we shared a handy Learning System tutorial that demonstrates a number of ways to install and use retro gaming emulators and add arcade controls to your RasPi. Well, here is a handy “A to Z” guide to installing RetroPie, another option for console emulation on your pie — a guide specifically tuned to getting Super Nintendo on your Pi — created by MidiTheKid who has created a number of Super Nintendo case and controller mods over the course of the last year.
This is a very helpful step-by-step tutorial from someone truly dedicated to getting SNES on the RasPi that includes a number of tips and tricks learned along the way! Check out the guide here:
With a Raspberry Pi, game emulation software and genuine arcade controls from Adafruit, you can build a dedicated retro game station and re-live these classic quarter-chompers. (Members Only jacket not included.) (read more)
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
