    Hi all,
    Been reading through the forums for a few days, and just signed up to ask a little advice on my first real project.
    I bought my first Dremel earlier in the week so I can finally put all my evil hardware modding plans into action! First up is building a Pi into a SNES case to use as a multi-emulator using RetroPie, and had some quick questions for anyone in the know…

    1. Ive ordered the GPIO adapter so I can use the original controller board from the console, but will this also enable the original power LED on the SNES to work as its on the same PCB, or so I need to come up with other ideas for that? If the latter, what would you suggest given that the adapter will be using all the GPIO pins?

    2. My plan is to mount the internals of an Xbox 360 wireless controller adapter (the kind you get for using a 360 pad on PC/Mac) into the case, so that the SNES reset button will press down onto the controller adapter
