Picade newbie here. Looking at the PIcade Cabinet as a father/son (11 YO) project and this one seemed to be the simplest/cheapest.
The building of the kit seems straightforward. But I didn't see any walkthroughs of how to get the Raspberry Pi set up and connected to the Picade.
Have an engineering background and not afraid of flashing f/w, dealing w/ an IDE, reading schematics, etc. But it's been a while since I played w/ the Arduino boards (back before Raspberry was a term) and not sure what needs to get loaded and how.
This is a first project for my son so I'd prefer to have easy to follow stuff so he can take the lead and not get too frustrated.
1) From my quick search, it does look like we can use the Raspberry Pi 3, correct?
2) Once I have an RPi board, what do I need to load (aside from ROMs) to have it work with Picade?
I found something like this:
But I'm not entirely sure how I'd configure it for the Picade controller.
I'm more than happy to read any/all links you can provide that will show us how to get started. Then I can curate the simplest/easiest ones for him to follow. Thanks in advance!
