Using Retropie 2.6 every things working with almost all emulators, only real issue is psx games like tekken 3/bloody roar 2 lagging.. if anyone knows how to sort that out let me know.
also changed to all logitech wireless controllers + keyboard/mouse.
added audio out connector on the back for when using hdmi->vga.
Its a little foggy next to that connector because i got drunk and dropped the case from like 1.5m. It took it like a boss and only 1 panel became slightly loose. went a bit overboard with the glue. lol
