Ive had a Rasp Pi in my drawer since forever. Decided I would try and put it to use and make a wee arcade machine out of it. (Ive managed before with a PC – made a table top ? )


However all is not going according to plan. I grabbed "Wolfanoz_ArcadeOnly32GB" and unzipped it. Put it onto an SD card.. Plugged it in. Fired up the PI.

Much stuff happened. After a time I eventually saw a brief menu of some sort.. The back to a command prompt with th efollowing on screen:

Error opening input file: usr/local/share/attract/intro/intro.mp4

ERROR loading video:usr/local/share/attract/intro/intro.mp4

Theres a bunch of other stuff just after that which I can copy to here – but hoped maybe this is enough ?

Ive not put any rom files on there ATM – not sure how I do that ? Maybe this is the reason ?

Or maybe this image needs a PI 3 ?

If the latter – is there an image that will run on PI 1 ? Is there a better image I should use here ? (Im only really interested in early stuff. Arcade stuff really, Pre '90s)

Any help appreciated.

The model 3 was cheap on amazon yesterday. So even though the intention was to use the PI ive had since release.. ive bought another.

Managed to get something working now though – but I think I need to setup the controllers. Im going to get it all working before buying a screen and 3d printing a case for it all ?
