I almost finished my Super Pitendo Project an want to share a few Pics with the Community.
It’s an old german PAL Super Nintendo Console. I removed every unnecessary plastic parts and the cartridge slot to get enough space for the following system parts:
– Raspberry Pi Model B rev 1
– 8 Port powered USB Hub
– Logilink USB Soundcard
– Shutdown circuit from Mausberry Circuits
– self made Resetbutton
– self made Powerled
– self made USB Controller-Ports
The Raspberry is powered via the USB Hub. The original Nintendo Powerswitch is soldered to the shutdown circuit. If you turn the Console off, the shutdown circuit send the shutdown command to the Pi and after the shutdown it cuts the power.
When pressing the Reset Button on the SNES it will bring you back to Emulatorstation. Therefore I changed the sourcecode from SNESdev and removed everything exept the exit command.
On the back you have 3 cinch plugs to connect the system to a SCART cabel, a LAN Port, a Mainpower-LED and a Mainpower Switch for the USB Hub.
The HDMI Port is on the right side and 4 USB ports are on the left side.
The next step is to add the Super Pitendo Logo to the Case and improvements to the paint.
At the moment I only run Megadriv/Genesis, NES and SNES with the RetroPie Image.
Next step is Final Burn Alpha, but i got a few problems to get the roms working. At the first try my test-rom (street fighter 3) works perfect. But after a reboot it stopped working and i got an errormsg :-/
