If anything, the controller will no doubt be good, as Nintendo first party stuff always has been, ignoring the virtual boy.

I bet this was due to incorrect shutdown i.e just turning the pi off without shutting down the software. As a whole it's a pretty reliable bit of kit, your pc would do the same if you just flicked it off at the switch evey time ...

I have seen quite a few friends show a massive interest in this and I for 1 cannot see the appeal. I think a lot of people are going to expect it to look as good as it did in their memories, not knowing that up-scaled on a 40"+ tv will look absolute garbage. HDMI out so definitely some sort of up scaling going on, I'll be interested to see how it looks.

I don't know if and how you can make a pi robust like like that; for me it didnt work. I don't want to properly shut down an emulation console, it needs to be headache and worry-free.


RetroPie isn't set up to allow power pulls. I've got notes somewhere on doing it with Linux, it's dead easy.

I know for the Gameboy zero project people are using a thing call "graceful shutdown" to stop said corruption, Which is prob similar to what cools is surgesting>

I don't know about it being dead easy though as there seem to be quite a bit involved (Hardware/Software)

Nah, completely different - just software. I know you can simply set the filesystem to read-only and that solves it, but I'm sure there was another way of doing it. This was >10 years ago though.

Ah ok, Using the read only file system would effect saving game files/retropie config settings though ? unless there is some exclusion for extentions or something no ?

I think it's pretty cool. Best thing they've released in ages.

Nah, what I'd do is have the core filesystem read-only then a separate partition/drive for stuff I needed to write to. Its a bit more in depth though. Certainly possible to harden it in software .

I have an RGB AV Famicom, CRTs, a Framemeister and a couple of Pi's but I still fancy one of these just because they look cute :whoopsie:

I never had a NES growing up, nor wanted one, so I have no nostalgic desire. That said it looks pretty nice, will no doubt sell well.

Will be waiting for the first person to hack this and have the whole library playable.

If they decide to release a SNES one though I might be tempted.

Well that makes no sense. Just buying whatever seems cool is fun! Day one!
