It has been a long week. I plan on sleeping until Sunday.
PiPlay will be getting a joystick configuration utility in the next release.
Don’t mind the placeholder graphics. The designer who did the PiPlay logo is making all the controller graphics to go in there 🙂
The next release is coming along really well. I’m very happy with it so far.
I bought Mario Kart 8, so if anyone wants to race, friend me! My NNID is SSilver2k2
On a cuter note, my wife and I went to the Humane Society and adopted a 6 month old orange kitten.
Meet Applejack 🙂
Have a great weekend all!
Not much to report this week. Coding on the next release is coming along nicely.
I have made a BerryBoot compatible image of the current release available to download here:
I was interviewed by Circuit Cellar Magazine, which was pretty cool. The interview can be found here:
Have a great weekend!
I’ve spent the past week on a lot of administrative PiPlay stuff, but I do have a couple of neat things to show.
Controller Config (very early)
Big thanks to Matt from the forums for coding up the theme support and Dan for helping with the controller configuration.
On my off time (hah) I’ve been working on a desktop barcade machine. I’ve done 2 days of 3 coats of paint, 1 day of sanding, and I’m getting ready to do another few layers of paint.
Have a great weekend!
Thank you so much for your backings and support. Over 400% funded! What did I do to celebrate?
I got a delicious post-Kickstarter celebratory Icee 🙂
To keep you all updated on my progress, I created this:
As I finish tasks (or add new ones) I will be updating this board (notice the green filled in dots at the bottom) and letting everyone know.
I got the PiPlay case in my hands last night. It looks and feels great. There is only a minor alteration that needs to be done.
Everyone who backed a tier with the case will receive this version that has Kickstarter Edition branding.
Lots of cool work is being done on PiPlay. Theme support is now built in, but it does have some quirks. We are fixing that, and it should be part of the PiPlay 0.8 beta 4 release.
I got in a Bartop Arcade Kit from Rich’s Arcade today. I am going to take pictures as I build it, and put that up as it’s own post.
The PiPlay Kickstarter has gone over $9000!!!!
So far, we are working on theme support, joystick support, joystick configs, auto grabbing of game screen images, screen image previews, and more emulators.
I’ve also started a joystick build so that I can test out different encoders easily.
- $30 for the encoder, joystick, and buttons from eBay.
- $15 for the case and $5 for the drill hole bits from Harbor Freight.
- Ability to carry around all my stuff in a joystick case: Priceless!

I’m going to go celebrate!
