    PetRockBlock.com would like to invite you to a cool contest around the RetroPie Project! One good thing about it is that it does not involve much effort to take part.
    The contest is going to be taking place here. We will be choosing two lucky winners to receive each a brand new Raspberry Pi Model B with 8GB SD Card from Newark Canada.

    In order to take part all you have to do is post an image of your RetroPie setup for everyone to see. The contest details can be summarized with these three easy-to-follow steps:

    1. Take a photo of your RetroPie Setup.
    2. Upload the photo(s) to imgur.com:

    3. Reply to this thread and include the image short code from the Imgur site for your photo, e.g.:

    Here is another exemplary image shortcode:
    [gist id=9c81ba51ad8f3ebeba7f]

    Just copy and paste the direct link generated by imgur.com in between the
    IMG-tags as shown above and add this to your post.

    This contest will begin immediately and will end on June 29th, 2014 at Midnight New York Time.

    The winners will be chosen randomly from amongst the participants (there must be at least 25). So, it really does not matter if you spent thousands of hours in your project (what we definitely would like to see then) or one hour. Staff members are not eligible to take part in the contest – to keep things fair.

    Good luck to everyone – we are looking forward to your RetroPie Setup!

    Here’s my humble RetroPi setup:

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/soyma9e.jpg[/IMG]

    For the longest time my Pi was just sitting around along with: an old Logitech Precision controller, and this CRT TV. So I bought my Pi a case, a cheap USB SNES controller, and I took my cheap dorm room speakers to make my own retro gaming console!

    Now I can nostalgically play anything from Centipede to Crash Bandicoot while reusing all this equipment I had. Thanks for breathing life into my Pi and making my room a cooler place to hang out in!

    not pretty yet, but it’s getting there, just got it Friday but loaded up 1.10 ISO and its smooth as butter compared to 1.09 but to be fair I was smacking files around left and right.

    Now it seems to play Sega CD games flawless sound is amazing, that they is the entire point of sega CD right is the sound is great, 16bit game with uncompressed sound = win or something like that.

    Anyways here is the most recent pic

    My current setup is portable. using an audio amp, portable phone charger, cheap tft for the screen, a teensy for the controls, and of course the pi.

    I initially started it because I am interested in making portables and thought the pi is a nice and easy place to start. Now I am making a portable wii which is turning out great.

    Not shown in the pictures but it has volume control, an sd slot, usb, Ethernet, and using Jason Birch’s method of having the xbox chatpad work on the pi. the buttons below the screen from left to right are select, exit, load state, save state, and start.

    I hearby proudly present my RetroXusPie Carry Kit (RetroPie Nexus 5), with a little bit of modding I made the case in which the package arrived a fair bit deeper, so I could fit in both my Raspberry Pi, my SNES controller and even leaving space to fit my Nexus 5. Pics:

    Here’s my setup, after a few upgrades including my fancy new slg3000 scanline generator (which I highly recommend, by the way). Here’s where I got it, incase you want to add CRT style scanlines to your gaming setup without the performance problems that come with using shaders on the PI: http://arcadeforge.net/SLG3000/Scanline-Generator-SLG3000::12.html?MODsid=38b9d1969bdb2eb7957c4b122105f3fd

    ==== My modest RetroPie NES ====

    – Bluetooth
    – Wifi
    – 2 side USB for other controllers

    Original games fit in the gametray. Sadly I had to take out the 72pin-connector. Maybe in a future project :)

    My full sized arcade cab running Retropie. Built from mdf and t-molded/vinyl wrapped. Houses 14″ crt tv, covered with perspex. Switch installed on back to turn on pi, tv, and marquee light. IR led attached to gpio which runs a script on startup to turn on tv, switch to correct source and turn up the volume, that way there’s no need to mess around with remote control for tv.

    My humble yet simple RetroPie. No extra fuss no extra cluter. Just power, HDMI, and a bluetooth dongle, so I can play games with PS3 controllers. Plus the clear see through case is really neat.

    My toy (My girls birthday present) is a little arcade machine.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/5fyZNLy.jpg[/IMG]

    It started with some old bits of wood.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/HLtOVgo.jpg[/IMG]

    After a bit of sanding and drilling it began to take shape.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/5Bu8KVd.jpg[/IMG]

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/p9l04FD.jpg[/IMG]

    The inside is a bit shabby and nothing is fixed down.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/hYssOio.jpg[/IMG]

    The buttons are controlled by an i-pac.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/SLitqsd.jpg[/IMG]

    The wiring of the controls a bit tight but just fits under the hood.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/UzkpvzL.jpg[/IMG]

    The marquee light has sound detection so it can react to gunfire and explosions by blinking in time with the sound. It can be turned on/off.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/s6rrslU.jpg[/IMG]

    It has all the great consoles.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/lxjmS4Y.jpg[/IMG]

    And games

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/RmWPi6j.jpg[/IMG]

    And The Girls love it.

    [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/gC5W4UJ.jpg[/IMG]

    Still not finished, need a marquee image to replace the temp spiderman one and lots of configuration to be done. But Happy with what can be done with some old wood and the magic of little raspberry pi.

    So my project is still a work in progress. I had a Linksys E4200 router die on me, and I had a spare 360 controller and wireless gaming adapter. The layout is certainly not final, but I am determined to make it work.

    You guys have some awesome setups. Definitely want to do something of the sort in the future, but for now I have a modest Pi setup in the living room to get some retro gaming and movie watching done while I’m away from home for school.
