I kept mine simple and used tomee USB adapters mounted inside the case for my both SNES and nes raspberry pis. It was easier but cost 10 bucks per adapter than the gpio method. In case it turns out you can’t use all four controllers directly into the pi that’s an option.
Being in the US I am not sure how long 10cm is, but I have HDMI port savers that are a few inches but a little stiff in all of my pi builds.
Never tried a CRT TV but I plan on trying to grab one that someone is throwing out.scottyParticipant09/25/2014 at 17:54Post count: 8scottyParticipant09/25/2014 at 16:17Post count: 8
Ok, for anyone struggling with this adapter, I was able to get it to work by editing the /drivers/hid/hid-input.c using the “alternate method” listed in the link above. I had never compiled a kernel before, but I was able to make my way through it.
At the end of hours and hours of compiling I had a new kernel.img file that I replaced with the edited code. I was shocked when it worked since I really had no idea what I was doing.
I’ll try and post the edited img file for anyone else so they should be able to just copy and paste if you are using a 3.12.x Kernel rather than monkeying around and spending an entire day trying to compile linux from scratch.
