Real quick, just wanted to show a very rough video of me using the XArcade Tankstick on the Raspberry Pi. I have the Trackball, Buttons and Joysticks all working. Gridlee has issues with it (has to have custom inputs set) but Street Fighter 2 and Missile Command worked “out-of-the-box”. I had to make a minor edit to the AdvanceMENU configuration file, but it looks like its working nicely.
I’m going to try a fresh re-install of PiMAME and try to recreate the results. I’m hoping to have a guide for this very soon ™.
It’s been a fun week. I have been playing a LOT of Black Mesa on Steam. If you have never played Half Life then I recommend you pick up this great fan remake of the original game. If you HAVE played Half Life then you need to play this game and see how great it is. It’s free. It’s awesome. It’s a lot of fun. http://release.blackmesasource.com/
Today Adafruit linked to me again. This time about my Battery Powered Pi and how I was using their 2″ screen. That made my day 🙂 The screen is working out great!
On the news about the overclocking…Holy Crap does it make a difference! Street Fighter 2 is now 100% playable, and i’ve been able to load D&D (a CPS2 game) and it play amazingly. I’ll be getting some video of that up soon. If you are using Raspbian, update and upgrade to the latest version. It’s worth it.
