Welcome to the first of this weeks BAD BOYS GONE GOOD – Where we take one of them naughty “fully loaded box” sellers and turn them into blessed little angels… OK, Well strictly speaking in this instance, UberPiDisk made them changes themselves..
First up the 3 images shared here are SOLID and HUNDREDS of HOURS have gone into them setting up the correct emulator and settings for the ROMS – the images are for the PiZero and the Raspberry Pi 3B (not the +) , and you will need a keyboard plugged in to set up the controller on first boot into EmulationStation. There is no reason why you can’t upgrade the RetroPie on these so they are 3B+ Compatible (you would need a 3B to do that on though! – who knows maybe someone will have a REMIX version drop soon!).
August 6th 2018 UberPiDisk went from selling fully loaded Retropie systems on eBay and their website to turning over a new leaf and giving away their images (here) and offering support services for all – on February the 13th 2019 the owner of UberPiDisk wrote a forum post on Arcade Punks sharing his builds…..
On the UberPiDisk website there is a great page full of various YouTube How-Tos which is well worth checking out if you decide to proceed with downloading this, decent images!
Clearly no time was spent on the look of these images, with the basic Carbon themes echoing across them – HOWEVER – thats a great excuse to dive into making your own (or installing a pre-done) theme and making this YOUR BUILD, without the bells and whistles!
So the guy made a few bucks from putting together something, some people do for nothing, but more importantly the guy ‘repented’ for whatever reasons and is now pushing these images out into the wild – he hasn’t murdered anyone, no-one has been hurt and no-one lost anything, so can we forgive him for his mistakes? You decide!
