RyCade (Ryan from iSight Designs) shared with us this awesome fully loaded Raspberry Pi 4 attract mode image – with over 11,000 games, and a bunch of new stuff as well as lots of customised media, themes and add-ons. Ryan is not only a great image maker who is new to the image making scene, but he is an old-school retro gamer, he also runs a HUGE Etsy store full of retro gaming merch and its well worth checking out (we already placed some orders!).
This build was recently featured on the MADLITTLEPIXEL YouTube channel (see video below!) – and is described by the MLP himself as “a solid image that needs a little polish” , but MLP also claims “this is all easy stuff you can simply do yourself” (such as some media title replacements and stuff – just to keep things “consistent”).
FROM THE AUTHOR:
My image was inspired my love of design and programming and was built to really act as a hand selected tested image with multiple platforms and as an experimental base for some emulators that don’t run great on the pi. Some of the ROMs, Saturn, Naomi, and atomiswave don’t run as well or load every time, but I want others to use this as a build image and let them tweak it. The arcade and hacks where picked and tested by me. I really researched and selected some hidden gems. The frontend systems page in attract mode was designed and programmed by me as well as most of the system wheel art. I also included some PC, ScummVM, and other keyboard games. This is a work in progress and far from perfect, but it really allows one to explore so many systems throughout the history of gaming. I selected many nostalgic Snap videos for the home screen, and have a favourites option.
My image can be changed with Retroarch but is out of the box ready for xbox360 / 8bitdo SN30pro controller. Most systems feature both the stick and keypad for directional control Bezels and Shaders are installed and can be set in Retroarch.
