I’ve been having a great time messing around with the Raspberry Pi and RetroPie. I am about to start investing a lot of time an money into building a bartop arcade, but I have a few concerns before I start spending a lot ordering parts.
Ideally, I would like to be able to use the joysticks/arcade buttons physically built into the box in the majority of emulators, but then I would also like to have the option to plug in retro style gamepads that match my favorite classic systems (NES/SNES/Genesis) or a keyboard/mouse for DOS/ScummVM/Apple.
What is the best method for doing this? I would like it to be as “plug-n-play” as possible. If nothing is plugged in, the arcade buttons become player 1/2, if I plug in USB controllers, they become player 1/2. Is this possible?
I have yet to purchase anything yet, but I’m open to using the ControlBlock, iPac2, Xin-Mo, etc. Any recommendations?
