So i finally got round to installing RetroPie onto my Tiny Pi. it is of course just as easy as installing it for anything else!! install retropie, install the fbtft bit, add fbcp, and adafruit-retrogame, and we are away!!

You are a bit restricted on the games you can play, purely from a readbility point, but the handheld console games work well

its amazing to see the size difference

and lets not be biased, lets give the sega some love

i didnt have a million batteries to run this wireless :P never realised just how washed out the gamegear screens were...

ready for action!!!

yeah they do make 160x128 screens, the only problem is that they are designed to be viewed in portrait mode (as this screen is mounted) so when you have them sideways (to make the 160 be the width and get the more 'normal' aspect ratio) you end up viewing things in the nasty inversion zone

  Are you sure? yes | no

beautiful stuff :) I wish there was a 160 x 160 display, but this is definitely a good compromise!
