Program GPIO controls on a DIY Raspberry Pi Arcade Cabinet!

We Build Stuff shared this video on Youtube!

This video shows how to do the basic programming needed in the Recalbox operating system on a Raspberry Pi when using the GPIO headers for connecting your arcade buttons and joystick.

I edit the ‘recalbox.conf’ file to allow the GPIO header controller. This can be done by root access via the terminal. I do it directly by plugging a keyboard into the Pi. On the frontend screen, press F4 to quit, then ALT+F2 to get a terminal and use credentials below.

Once you have got past the password part (“root” as login and “recalboxroot” as password.) type ‘nano recalbox.conf’ to access the file. Scroll down and enable the gpio by changing the 0 to a 1 as show below.
**Be aware that sometimes what you type doesn’t actually show up on screen**

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
