I’m a proud owner of an “older” Picade model, which I enjoy a lot.
So, I was thinking, wouldn’t be cool to have the option of a “vertical” Picade with a 3:4 or 9:16 lcd? All the components of the current model may be re-used, just the cabinet should be adapted to the new form factor.
This will be a perfect for vertical shooters and also pinball games, which are more relevant now that the Raspberry pi 4’s horsepower may enable to run. Also the Pi 4’s double hdmi output may make possible to implement a dynamic marquee or a pinball DMD screen. See some examples below:
What do you think?
