    Hello everyone, i need help. nad i think you guys can help me out.

    I got my raspberry with retropie on it, it works great. i also got the GPIO Adaptor från petrock. and everything is working great.

    So my question is. Can i use this switch (http://mausberrycircuits.com/products/direct-plug-shutdown-switch-with-rocker)
    even if i got the GPIO adaptor on all the GPIO pins? Because as you can see this switch needs 2 pins of the GPIO to functional as a “safe shutdown” (sends the halt command etc etc.)

    so is it possibly for me to have 2 things useing the same GPIO pins without the raspberry will freak out?!

    Thanks for answers, love the blog, forum! and retropie!

    Greetings Jerry

    Hi!

    The RetroPie GPIO Adapter offers four additional pin break outs: 0, 14, 21, and 22 (see also http://blog.petrockblock.com/forums/topic/using-other-gpio-pins-with-the-retropie-adapter/#post-2996). You could connect the Mausberry switch to these pins. You probably would have to configure the Mausberry script according to your pin choice.
