DrewTalks Checks Out the awesome DMC s Nintendo Only Raspberry Pi 128gb Build. NES, SNES, Game Boy, Virtual Boy. Nintendo 64, Nintendo DS, Gameboy Color, Game & watch, Nintendo Arcade, Nintendo Gameboy Advance. Everything about this screams NINTENDO!
Will work on all Pi versions, however some systems may not play on Pi0
Image is pre-shrunk – don’t forget to expand the file system.
Additions over the 32gb image:
-Nintendo Arcade System, Nintendo VS. and Nintendo Playchoice-10 added to the arcade section – 104 games
-Nintendo DS – 1985 games
-Nintendo 64 – 303 games
-NES hacked games collection – 637 games
-SNES hacked games collection – 221 games
-Game Boy hacked games collection – 19 games
-Game Boy colour hacked games collection – 1 game (the colurised Super Mario Land 2: 6 Golden Coins which dropped back in December)
-Game Boy Advance hacked games collection – 22 games
-Artwork scraped, with video snaps where available
-Re-scraped all systems to add in wheels/marquees, so those are in place and available if you switch to a different theme which makes use of them.
-System icons, logos and boxart for hacked games systems made by Ryan J Officer from the MLP group
-Run command/launch images by Ryan J Officer from the MLP group
-Playchoice-10 added for the sake of completion, but not that practical to use unless you have your screen in a portrait orientation. Once you have added credits with the select button, use the right shoulder button to select the game.
-Nintendo DS – works well on the games that I have tested – controller will need to be setup, which will require the use of a keyboard. Best to use a controller with analog sticks which will be needed for games which make use of the stylus.
-Arcade set – some of the games will prompt that there are ‘known issues’ with the rom, however most seem to run and play fine – two exceptions being Tetris which the colours are way off, and Battle Shark which the image appears to be flipped. Shooting games will require the use of a mouse. Or switch the roms out with ones which are compatible with advanced-mame if you want to make use of a light gun.
Remaining is as per release info for the 32gb release below:-Ryan J Officer from Mad Little Pixel Gaming Facebook group for the excellent new run/launch splashscreens-Daimo’s Game Share YouTube for the SNES Classic intro/bootup video-Drew Talks for the list of N64 games which are playable on the PiAdditions from SNESv3 DMC 16GB image:The following systems have been added;-Game and Watch-Game Boy-Game Boy Color-Virtual Boy-N64**Due to space constraints, only 100 games have been added, these were taken from Drew Talks list of N64 games which are playable on the Pi.Everything else is as per the 16GB release notes below. Image is still Pi Zero / 2 / 3 compatible. Pi Zero users may wish to ditch the N64 collection though as they’re only just playable on the Pi 2 / 3.Additions from MadLittlePixels SNESv2 base image:The following have been added;-Famicom-Famicom Disk System-Super Famicom<-Launch/run command splash screens added to all systems, along with bezels/overlays (also pre-installed are the launch screens and bezels/overlays for Game Boy and Virtual Boy)<-Image is still cross compatible and usable with Pi Zero / 2 / 3-Motionblue/Hyperspin ready roms added for Famicom, Famicom Disk System, NES, Super Famicom, and Super Nintendo (Wanting to keep this image kid friendly, I removed circa 30 adult content games from the Famicom Disk System)-All systems scraped with the UXML scraper – any roms which did not scrape were moved to \roms\roms_which_wont_scrape\system_name\ so are still available should anyone wish to add them back in.Artwork and video snaps can be found under \roms\system_name\downloaded_images\System gamelist.xml can be found under \roms\system_name\gamelist.xmlCollections added for the Famicom, NES, Super Famicom and Super Nintendo Classics/Minis with the appropriate titles added to each collection.Music folder relocated to \roms\music for easeSince a lot of people are using Rons base image with the Retroflag NesPi case, I went ahead and pre-installed the James White power switch hack along with his fan control mod. These are disabled by default but can be enabled by editing rc.local and un-commenting (delete the hash) the required line.Power switch hack option A – reset button exits the game back to emulation station menuPower switch hack option B – reset button shuts down and restarts the PiOn both options the power button will shut the Pi down before killing power.Only one of the two options should be enabled.Fan control mod – will govern the speed of the fan(s) determined via the temperature of the CPU – again, un-comment to enable itES graceful shutdown script to ensure game metadata is always saved is also installed but is disabled by default (see this link for notes on this script https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/12895/ensuring-es-gracefully-finish-and-save-metadata-in-every-system-shutdown) note that this will cause the system to take longer to shut down as the system will wait for this script to finish running before powering offTo enable, run the following command from putty;sudo systemctl enable killesFull credit to MLP for the base image, I just added a few things to it. – DMC
