    Hi Guys,
    If I am posting this in the wrong place – I apologise in advance – please direct me to the correct place.

    I have been using Raspberry Pi’s since 2011 I own seven of them, I also have two Banana pi’s and an Orange Pi.

    At the weekend I started building a retro games console for my twin 11 year old nieces my hardware is coming along nicely – and I was planning on using the Raspberry Pi Model B running Retropie – but every time I go to the github download page for Retropi V3.6 I get the error below ?

    This site can’t be reached

    https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/releases/download/3.6/retropie-v3.6-rpi2_rpi3.img.gz is unreachable.

    I first observed this error on Sunday – and thought there may be an issue with github – but its now Tuesday and the site still seems to be down – what am I missing – where can the retropie download images be found ?

    Kindest regards

    Hello,
    Thank you for that – I have investigated further it seems my Internet Provider is blocking the link – if I use the TOR browser and past the link into that it works perfectly. Thank you for clarifying the link is indeed working – mystery solved – file is downloading fine now.

    Kindest regards

    Howdy Chris,
    Just a quick tip. I have the same model pi. With default settings NES games sound would stutter. SNES lagged. You can test yourself and see. My issues went away when I used the raspi-config script to overclock the pi to 1ghz or 10000. I think its called turbo or something. You will need a heatsink or fan though to keep the pi running smooth.
    Hope this helps!

    Hi,

    I am already running three of my Pi’s over clocked with heatsinks – I was planning on running this Pi over clocked as well probably to 950Mhz with a set of three copper heat sinks.

    Kindest regards
