I guess introductions are in order? I’m a long time gamer, modder, and DIYer who made technology his career. I’m not someone living in my mother’s basement, but with all of the things I do, I have had people wonder about that. lol

I’ve had a gaming cabinet that I rebuilt. It had an ancient beige tower in it running Hyperspin, stereo system with speakers, 21″ tube monitor, and analog buttons/joystick. In short, it had good ‘bones’, so I ripped out the PC, replaced the buttons and joystick with new USB compatible ones, got a Raspberry Pi3, loaded up Retropie, piled on my ton of ROMS that I’ve collected over the years, and ran with it. After the nightmare of button assignments/configuration (I still shiver thinking about having to do that) I would say it works fine, but the interface is pretty bland and some of the games don’t quite have the right mapping. It got me thinking about various spins, and that’s how I landed here.

I saw a few on the 2021 list that looked great and thought I would give them a try. I’m a little lost as to the difference in the various spins, though.

Anyhow, glad to be here, and hope I can help out in some way as time goes on.
