Hey man, are you still playing your mini arcade? I need an update on how well the controls are on the Porta Pi and do you notice a significant difference in the rPi 2 compared to rPi B?

I so want this!!!

I haven't had too much time to mess with it alot, but the pi 2 can run pretty much all psx games flawlessly. You can setup the controls in most of the emulators themselves. There are 4 usb ports to use so all you need is controller. I see a lot of people using ps3 or xbox 360 controllers all the time. I still have not had luck getting n64 to work, but it is possible with certain games. I saw a youtube vid of mario kart 64 and it played fine. I myself just play nes, snes, genesis, gbc, gba, gb, and mame mostly. With these systems, the rpi b+ model is more than adequate to run these games. The biggest improvement is the gui os of the rpi2. It is a lot faster than the b+ pi.

Hey I was checking out Ryan's site and it looks like he is about to release an update image for the rpi2 for the Porta Pi. Hopefully this will be a decent boost in performance. I like the support he does for his system.

Update! Finally got n64 working! I tried Ryan's updated image and that did the trick. I didn't get to test the games out, but Smash bros loaded up, as well as Zelda 64. I would have to say that emulation of these games is really slow at the moment. Hopefully the people over at petrock get all the bugs worked out.
