Retropie project

Recommended Posts

so this is my current project, its a pi zero in a metal DBZ History of Trunks DVD Case. I dremeled out the finger grip areas to make room for the ports. Mounted using mounting tape and when its done, ill hot glue it shut.

currently my usb snes controllers arent working, so that is what im working on now.

Correct me if i m wrong but i think raspberry pi cannot work with hub for controllers.you have to connect every controller in different usb port if you use retropie!

Hope you can sort out your issues, I'm guessing you need a powered usb hub

Yeah those OTG hubs to dont work.  Not if you use them to also power the unit and the Pi gets confused even if you use it just for controllers.  Check it by powering it on with pads in and no power.  Then take out the hub, plug it back in, after around 20 secs the pads work again.  

Its  a pain that makes the hubs usless from all the ones I tried :( amaon basics hub is perfect though :D

I'm guessing that box will get very hot when it's closed

Please update us with the final photo once it's finished, I'm really curious to see how it'll look with the controllers getting out of the DVD case!

Not sure I understand the purpose of this... (if it was ever even done)
