Have one at home and one at work. There are some good kits on Amazon if you don't want to load everything yourself.

This thing is pretty cool. Started out with Raspian then eventually loaded RetroPie. Having a little trouble loading the rpm for the ps3 controller bluetooth though.

I've had one set up for a while.

It's is fun but I get enough noticeable lag in the controller that it makes some games almost unplayable. Would be interested if any of you are also seeing the same thing. I'm using a Pi3 and a 8bitdo SNES30.

Your lag - are you using your controller via bluetooth or connected via USB?

Another thing I've realized. After going through the SNES game list, there really weren't that many great SNES titles. Not nearly as many as I remember.

Definitely

and I also noticed lag via bluetooth with the PS3 controller. Ended up just using a long usb cable.

My pi won't boot anymore

Get's stuck at the retropi boot screen and never loads. Anyone else had this happen?

Not yet, but I had a friend at work notice some other weird things going on with his. Does retropie do any kind of automatic updates?
