curious, why not go for a newer image?
Well, unless I was looking in the wrong spot… I wanted a 128GB image that was designed for a 4:3 screen, but didn’t see any.
As mentioned, I bought a pair of Samsung 204b monitors (20″ – 4:3 – 1600×1200 – DVI) and replaced the caps. Nice, clear and bright image, I think will do great for an Arcade build. Though instead of the full Arcade now (lack of space, time and price of wood) I am doing a smaller tabletop. I have the Voldemort image running before on my SD card and I liked the look and setup. I used Win32 Disk Imager and made an image of the SD card that has the Voldemort image on it, but no way to really test if the file works without wiping out my SD card.
If there’s a good 4:3 128GB image let me know.
The RaspPi3 section seems somewhat sparse now. RaspPi4 has quite a bit, but holy s**t the price of a RaspPi4!!! I was thinking for $50CAD why not upgrade, then hopped online and saw that everyone is asking $250-$350CAD for a RaspPi4 4GB. Ridiculous. I assumed Covid related, since blamed for everything, but after 1-2yrs the price is still a few hundred bucks.
So much for being a cheap hobby board and learning tool.
Side note… rarely but occasionally, someone pops up with 100% of the file, and 2 others like me trying to get it. Just about at 65%. Fingers crossed.
