Hey! Like the title says I’m new to arcade emulation, previously I cracked an SNES mini but really nothing noteworthy. I spent this past week getting to know Retropie on a new to me RPi 4 with 4 gigs of ram. Grabbed the Wolfanoz pack and while some of the consoles display _slightly_ blurrier than I remember, overall I’m blown away by how good the entire package is. I’m loving it, it’s easy to see how much work was put in.
Eventually, I want to move this RPi into a bartop arcade setup for 2 players, possibly with a track ball, maybe a light gun too. I see tons of content out there for building arcade controllers but I’d appreciate some guidance around which brands and which shops are best, if you have an opinion. If olde reliable Amazon is the thing to do, I’m cool with that too. Just wondering what is what.
Not sure how deeply I’ll use this forum but thought at the very least I could give a shoutout to the Wolfanoz build. If there’s a way to donate to the person or people who made that thing, please link me!
