VertPie...

Hi. So I got this VertPie thing. It seemed really nice/weel done...but it was running all old stuff and didn't work on a Pi 3b+, wasn't using RetroArch, etc...so...

I fixed it :)

I have updated the whole thing to stretch and booting and running on the 3b+, got attract mode all built and working, etc. Basically
ported" the thing to 2018. Would anyone one else be interested in this sort of thing? I don't know how common/popular vertical cabs are, as the project seemed to have been essentially "abandoned"...

 

I would be interested. I've been looking into a vertical setup for a while but don't have the time to start from scratch. I just found out about VertiePie about a week ago and an update would be great. I was also considering using an old laptop and slapping HyperV or HyperTate on top of Windows. Any recommendations?

Same for me.   Have been thinking about and interested in an all vert image.   I had been looking at what was available and hoping for somewhat of a 'reboot' on one.   I plan to build a vert cabinet with a 32in monitor.   Nice and tall!   I'd love to see your work and give it a go if you do not mind sharing and are  able.

 

 

Ok then :)

Full disclosure - I do not consider myself in *any way* a "releaser" or anything like that...it just seems this is the *only* think for rPi that is purpose-made for vertical/cocktail setups (sadly).

as an extra "it figures" Retropie 4.4 was released yesterday with official/full  support for Stretch and the 3b+ (yay) so I am upgrading everything and re-checking some stuff to make sure it still runs, and will likely have to reset a bunch of settings (again) from the defaults, but this is a cap of where I was right before I told RetroPie to upgrade:

I will report back after that is done...and if someone "around here" handles these kinds of things officially...now would be a good time to wave at me :)

 

Ok, looks like everything came back and is working after the update. As i noticed a slight issue before with Attract, I am letting it fun for some hours to see if it returns, if not, likely G2G.

 

I would love to test this as well! Also... any input on setting up the cabinet controls / buttons / sticks as 2 player would be helpful...
