My first Pi project from a few years back (NESpi)

Post by rodocop » Tue May 02, 2017 12:01 pm

I was just browsing through some photos and thought i'd post this project.

I used a pi B, and a NES case, wired the power and reset buttons to the pi via a mausberry switch. Soldered an adapter to the controller port to convert the controls to USB, cut some holes for the HDMI and power etc...Pretty basic project, I have since sold it. It was my first time using a raspberry pi (and retropie) for anything. I don't have many photos apparently, but you can see a few here:

Parts:

Mausberry Shutdown Switch:

NES/SNES RetroKit:

An old NES with working buttons and controller ports. The one I had was working fine, I donated all unused parts to a local game repair shop.

Plus a pi, usb hub, LED, and cords. With a pi 3 you can likely eliminate the hub. I used an old pi B with only 2 usb port, and I needed more since I needed USB slots for wifi and bluetooth, and the controllers.

just noticed this message, yes, the mausberry switch allows for a safe shutdown. Using a python script, that monitors some GPIO pins I believe.

this is the info from their website:
