After the release of the Nintendo Classic Mini I thought it would be fun to build a Rpi3 based RetroPie. For this build I will be using a Super Famicom as the case. Side note: Why is the SNES so ugly in comparison to the Super Famicom?
I want to accomplish the following goals on this build:
- Use of the Super Famicom shell.
- Functionality of the original Power and Reset buttons
- Power switch properly shuts down the Rpi gracefully (arduino nano?)
- Reset button returns to Emulation Station main menu
- Full functionality of the original controllers and controller ports
- Full availability of the Rpi3 connectivity
- USB (controller and possible storage)
- WIFI (virtual multiplayer?)
- Bluetooth (controllers and maybe audio?)
- Ease of use for people that are not me
I know the list above will change; I will try to keep it updated as an index to what did and didn’t work.
This project used the following components: (Additional tools and common material such as a Soldering Iron and wire are not included below)
