Remember the NEOPI PiPiggies image, possibly one of the best images ever – its deffo up there in the top 5 !! – well Arcade Punk TUTTIFUSI decided this was the image for him, but not for his build, as explained below…

Neopi Piggies Arcade Mod for CRT TV only (Advmame version) (240p)

First of all, this image is not from PiPiggies, it is only a custom NeoPi Piggies based image where I modified it a little, with the target of connecting the raspberry on a TV using a RCA cable to 4:3 CRT via 3.5mm jack.

This idea comes to me after building a control panel with Raspberry Pi 3 board inside. And to play the arcade games in 240p (non native) resolution on a CRT TV. Looks better than to play on a LCD/LED TV. Because of a small capacity of microsd card (16gb) it contains only about 950 arcade games.
As emulator, it use AdvanceMame which seems the best choice for me for using on a crt TV; if there are games not working, try to use FBalpha or alternative emulators. For who want to use on a NTSC TV, edit in the config.txt file the following line:
sdtv_mode=16

When first booting up the img, the ES welcome screen is there just asking to configure the gamepad for using emulationstation and libretro emulators (fbalpha and mame2003/2010).

For configuring and using the gamepad on Advance Mame, start using a keyboard connected a type TAB key to open the Cconfig menu and configure yourself the gamepad/arcade stick. A backup folder is included in case of a mistake so you can restart to configure the gamepad.

So if you like to use it, take it on your own risk. What you do with this image is your own business, I take no responsibility with anything that comes of this. I am merely sharing with you my own personal modified NeoPi image of Piggie. So credits of this image belongs to PiPiggies. – TUTTIFUSI
