The Gamecube with the Raspberry PI 2 is completed. With the console, the games can (ROMS) of various consoles, such as Super Nintendo and Sega, are played. All support gaming platforms can be found under the heading “Software”.
The centerpiece of the console is the single board computers Raspberry Pi 2 Model B. The single-board computer is konzepiert for operation without a heat sink. However, it may lead to excessive CPU temperature, dependent on location, room temperature and load. In this case, the Pi 2 Raspberry clocked down automatically, thus reducing its computing power.
In each panel, however, is a temperature-controlled fan, incl. Heatsink installed cools the system. This leads to the preservation of computing power and overclocking the CPU clock from 900MHz to 1050MHz, is safely possible. The overclocking the CPU clock favors the playability of some Nintendo 64 games. In a free-standing version of the console and at normal room temperature, the system is absolutely silent.Andreas Jabs from Germany has taken an old GameCube and retro-fitted it with a Raspberry Pi 2. He has brought the Pi’s USB ports to the front of the case so that he can attach various controllers and has 3D printed some internal components to make the whole thing fit. He has installed Recalbox on the Pi’s SD card to run games under emulation. You can view more photographs on his site (which is in German, but that’s what Google Translate is for).
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
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
