thanks for the info guys. I will setup a Kodi build on my R-pi and give it a try.
Been running KODI on the RPi for close to two years with no major issues. Basically PnP.Has anyone run Kodi media player on a R-Pi? Specifically one of the newer models? Ive run it on android stick and the performance has been lackluster compared to running it on a PC. This thread has made me wonder if its worth loading up Kodi on a R-Pi and giving it a shot.
That is a good looking case. I really should put my pi's to more use than they currently get.
Looks great! Did you buy one of the 8bitdo controllers? Been thinking about getting one of those.
No. Not yet anyway. I have a variety of controllers already. Im an interactive technology guy by trade, so i have lots of gear to play with. I have a Logitech PS/Xbox wired controller that works perfectly. I have tried two bluetooth controllers so far, and both have given me some weird latency issues. I tried the Razor Serval and the Snakebyte. Both were quite unsatisfactory. I have a few more controllers floating around. I have a Moga Bluetooth controller, which I will try next. I also have the Xbox controller that came with my Oculus Rift, which has the USB receiver included. That is also supposed to work. I am hoping to find a controller that has not latency issues. The 8bitdo claims to have zero latency, so if all else fails, I may have to pick one up. The model with the arcade joystick looks really cool. We will see.Looks great!

I have been thinking about the I-Pac on the Pi a lot lately. I have two full size arcade machines in my house that I gutted out and run MAME with PC's and I-Pac boards. They work great with MAME. Stellar in fact. However, both of these systems were built many years ago. And the PCs are old and tired. I would love to upgrade them to something as simple as Retropie. But my thoughts are that the I-Pac is most definately optimized for a MAME deployment, where keystroke emulation is the main UI. The Retropie seems to maintain that keyboard/keystroke centric UI for the MAME emulation. But it seems to be much more gamepad oriented for the other emulators. The huge mix of different emulators within one interface is what makes the Retropie compelling for me. If I replace the PC in my I-Pac based arcade systems with a Retropie, and I can only use MAME, that may not be worth the effort. I will have to do some experimenting and see how it goes.
