Hi all, I plan on buying a Pi 2 this week and had a few questions before I make my purchase.
From various tutorials and things I have read online while researching, I see that roms can be loaded from usb instead of the SD card. Should I spend less on the SD by getting a smaller card and spend more on a larger usb flash drive?
I plan on emulating all the 8 and 16 bit consoles, MAME, Neo Geo, and TG16 CD and Mega CD and maybe a few PSX games.
I plan on getting the Pi 2, case, micro sd and reader, hdmi cable, and a usb flash drive. I have a usb keyboard from an old desktop and a wired 360 pad. Anything else I would need or general advice?
The guide works for 3.0 as well. Most configurations can be done from the new retropie menu in emulation station. I have 3 or 4 microsd cards- I use smaller ones for testing and have a 64 GB one for my main setup. It was good for me to have a few because I corrupted one beyond repair. They are relatively cheap from Amazon.
