I always enjoyed playing all these old games. I love quake, MK4 and all SEGA games. Having a console that has all these games would be great. And having this console made by myself is even better. Having this inside of a microwave, well that's a lot better. We will sue an raspberri pi 3, an SD card, a keyboard and a joystick, a power supply and an LCD module with HDMI input.
Ok, so first thing first lets see what we need and how to connect everything. You have a full part list on the link below so you could order all that you need. You also have the scheamtic so you know how to connect each module. Make sure you buy a fast SD card so we won't have any problems...
As you can see we need a raspberry pi, in this case a pi 3. We also need an HDMI driver that could be conencted to the LCD screen. To supply everything we need a 12V power supply since the LCD works at that voltage. But the raspberry pi at 5V so for taht we need a buck converter module with at least 2A. We also need a joystick, in this case a copy of the XBox controller. To amplify sound we need some sort of amplifier. In the part list you will find a few examples.
