Here’s a demo of the new SGC Micro Arcade:
Introducing the new SGC Micro Arcade. I have had several requests for a smaller (cheaper) version of the Mini Arcade that has HDMI out for connection to a tv/monitor. Pictured below is the prototype built using MDF. The final version will be made using the same bamboo plywood as the SGC Mini Arcade and also run off a Raspberry Pi 2 with the ability to play all the same games. Audio is handled by the HDMI connection and the unit is powered by USB. Pics and a video demonstration of the bamboo unit will be posted shortly.
I have designed and built a couple of 2 player mini arcade prototypes. The one you can see in the first pic is just a larger version of the 1 player mini arcade with a 14″ display. It ended up just being too big and it’s almost impossible to get 14″ LCDs. The second pic is what I’ll probably end up going with. It’s just slightly bigger than the 1 player cabinet with a 10″ or 12″ display (haven’t decided yet) with an extended 2 player control panel. I’ll add some more pics as it evolves.
I’ve added a supplementary video which explains a few things that I missed in the other videos. Check it out below:
Hi retro gamers, RetroPie 3.0 has been released and I have configured it to work with the SuperGameCo Mini Arcade. It has had more systems added to the list and a bunch of other updates and bug fixes.
I’ve tested a few systems including MAME and it has worked fine so far. A lot more work is needed for it to work completely with the Mini Arcade but I thought I’d put it up so people could check it out. One issue I have come across is it doesn’t seem to exit games on any system other than MAME. Let me know if you manage to figure out why.
