I haven't been doing much arcade gaming lately, both because my current hardware set up makes it inconvenient and because I've caught the speedrunning bug. But I've got some good news! I just bought a rasperry pi 2 model B and will be setting it up as a MAME 'console'. Once I do that, I expect that playing and streaming my games will be a lot easier.
Since the rasp pi has composite output, I'm excited to see how it will look and sound on my CRT TV as opposed to on my LCD PC monitor and desktop speakers. Maybe a bit more authentic for the classic arcade games? Maybe? Also, I'd like to see if using a CRT makes a dent in the input delay. There will still be some emulator delay, but it would be a HUGE boon to my Robotron attempts if I can make my split-second decision making more reliable.
Lastly- yes, this does mean I'll be spending some more time practicing Donkey Kong and maybe going for a Kill Screen one of these days.
I'll post more about this when I have everything set up. I'm still waiting for the case to arrive and I've yet to set up my SD card. This should all be ready in a week or so.
I can't wait.
