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.
- From my quick search, it does look like we can use the Raspberry Pi 3, correct?
- 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!
