  1. Excellent video, very well done. I'm floored.

  2. Good design but I don't like how all the games are in the SD card and if there a way to have game loaded from a usb I would use a compact flash with a card reader adapter to make it feel like I'm loading the game from a cartridges

  3. I'm hoping to try this once I have all the money

  4. I really like the idea of using a sort of tool case to house everything, defenintly integrating that into my current project.

  5. Marvellous project! Would be interesting to have an output to connect another one and play 1vs 1

  6. Can I get away with using a raspberry pi 3b ?

  7. How did you get the battery to turn off when the pi is shut down as the pi doesn’t turn off and continue to draw power?

  8. This might be really interesting with a Mister in place of the retro Pi…

  9. "How to put a pie in a case, And then put that in a bigger case with a lcd screen" For the person who doesn't know how to put things in boxes…

  10. Isn’t the micro usb supposed to be a usb c? I bought the list and of course it’s a usb c not micro usb

  11. can i use my nintendo switch with this case ?

  12. Can I also build this with an raspberry pi 4 model b

  13. Would you ever consider selling a assembled unit? I would be very interested. I have a Pi 4 just sitting around doing nothing.
