I’ve made improvements since this video was taken but you get the idea.

**** Torrents are reuploaded and hopefully faster now. Sorry, I’m new to this.****

Hello Arcade1up community,

The last few weeks I''ve been working on an Arcade1up only image for modders on this forum. Last night, I'm happy to say that it is finished. In my opinion, this is the best image available for Arcade1up owners using GEN1, GEN3, 2 player or 4 player cabinets. I consider this my final image for the Raspberry Pi3b. I would have loved to do this on the Pi4 but unfortunately, the images available just aren't far enough along yet and i'm waiting for more updates. Here is what you can expect with this image which I'm calling Hybrid because I took the parts I like the most from other builds on the internet and combined them to make the ultimate Arcade1up cabinet image.

*If you have a Gen1 cabinet then please download the Gen1 image and likewise for Gen3 cabinets.

- All bezels removed. (This causes image streching in vertical games. If you want to correct the vertical games then just push the A button while the game is loading and switch the video settings to 720p to get the original vertical image for games like Gyruss etc.)

- All splashscreens converted to fill the entire screen for you perspective cabinet.

- FIxed loading screens for all systems

- 99% of games on this image have videos and screenshots available. SNES Hacks and Sega Genesis Hacks don't have any.

- 2 player and 4 Player support and roms for just about everything.

- N64 games that run well on Raspberry Pi3b have been added with the controls configured. No more struggling to get the analog stick working. Also, 4 player games such as Mario Kart 64, Smash Bros etc. have been configured to work in four player to the best of my ability even with controllers that only have 4 buttons.

- OPENBOR games configured for 2 player and 4 player.

- SNES CD roms added with video and art splashscreens.

- Dreamcast games that run well are on here and configured for 4 player.

- Removed systems that don't work well with Arcade1up control sticks.

Other systems available off of the top of my head:


Sega CD

Most popular consoles (SNES,NES,GENESIS,TG16 etc.)

I tried to make this image 256gb but it just bogged the system down so much that I was getting crashes so here you have a tightly packed 128gb Raspberry pi3b image. The is about 400 megs left for system stability.

This was a labor of love and I hope you enjoy it. This project kept me sane during my furlough from work and i learned a ton a long the way. The main reason I started this is because every image I used from the net always had some sort of issue with my arcade1up cabinet. I'm fortunate to have access to a Gen3 TMNT and a Gen1 SF2 cabinet so that i was able to make one of these for everyone. Although, I'm not sure how this will react with cabinets that have a vertical screen. I presume you can just make a few edits to make it work.

Hopefully, I'll be able to make a Pi4 image like this someday. Or better yet, hopefully someone does it for me!

Wished I could have added to this image:

3DO (Soft place in my heart)

More Dreamcast (Runs poorly)

Killer Instinct (Does not run on Pi3b worthy of playing.)

M.A.C.H 3 on DAPHNE with working controls (I could not figure this one out.)

Anyways, I hope you like it and I'm sorry if you find any glaring issues please DM me and I'll see about fixing them. However, I think i'm done. I can finally sleep now!


*I recommend QBittorrent for downloading these images.
