Just remember - pretty much every hand you've ever shaken and will ever shake has had a dick in it at some point.
Try not to lose sleep over it.... :lol:

Hey All....would anyone know how to change Retropi from loading lr-imame4all vs. MAME4ALL-Pi ?
I'm realizing that the TAB function won't work in the MAME games with the lr-imame4all booting up.

Any help appreciated. Ms. Pac playing wide screen and not being able to edit it is driving me nuts.

Have you tried loading a ms pac rom into the mame4all rom folder, you may need a diff version of the rom, but thats the version I run and no widescreen, plus tab supported for tweaking.

On mine (Pi 2) the unc is \\retropie\roms\mame-mame4all

Emulation Station will give you 2 MAME menu's when using roms in diff versions of MAME, be nice if they just merged them into one.

I'm way behind on my Pi projects.
The kids and holidays have been keeping me busy.

I kind of decided I would take one project at a time and complete it first.
Starting with the Aim Trak guns I've had for ..............7, maybe 8, perhaps 9 years and never installed.
Not only that, they are still in the box.

I want to check off a few boxes before I get to the Pi powered bartop unit.
But I also want to use my 2nd Pi for a console based build.

For now I've been sourcing the required parts for both.

Today I managed to score 2 XBOX 360 wireless controllers for $20 about 5 min from my home.
I previously picked up the XBOX 360 wireless controller adapter, the one that allows you to use the controls on a PC.
I'm wondering if I could use this on my Pi build ?

I picked up 2 x SNES USB gamepads, and 2 x NES USB gamepads for the project also.
Looking at getting 2 x N64 USB gamepads, but could not find a Dreamcast style USB controller.

Taking a page from MKP1's book, I love the idea of using the various controllers. I just hope it doesn't make for a sh*t ton of configuring.
I'm hoping I can configure them one time for each type, then just plug and play.

Anyone ever try ?

I have an Operation Wolf with a none working PCB and a replacement is very hard to find. Does anybody know if you could run the game and the gun using a pi.

A ton of good information here but after the read and a little investigation I decided to purchase a prebuilt unit.
I'm just too damn lazy.

It looks similar to the one below with 5,000 + games.

Juzt....

Not only can I respect lazy, I am gonna commend you for the choice... that is one of the classiest controller builds I've seen. It doesn't look like the graphics department cutting room floor like some of the ones on the net that are being flogged. Just not my thing. Where did you grab that if you don't mind my asking? (edit... retroordie.com lol)
