    mario and starfox on the n64 emulator?

    I'm looking for uses for my old RPi 1 (model B). Which model are you using?

    How long until the Raspberry Pi Zero supply catches up with demand? Can't seem to find one anywhere. :(

    I've been using Kodi on my Pi 2 via ethernet now for about a year and it hasn't missed a beat. Fantastic little thing. I've moved now and unfortunately I can't use ethernet so I have to use wireless. What would be the best wireless adaptor for it? Do I need a powered one?

    So do I need a powered USB hub for it to perform best?

    Edit. I see, so I use it as a repeater? I just remembered I have EOP adapters that I was using previously so I'll see how they go.

    its a usb to wifi adapter. i assumed you have wifi on a router somewhere in your setup.
    EOP would be fine too

    Got retropie installed on my RPi model B, works quite well. Audio out the 3.5" port has tons of static so using a USB sound card instead and works well. A bit of tinkering to change the default sound card but all is well now.

    Still ironing out a few bugs but looking forward mostly to DOSBox :thumbup:

    I've got to agree, I've got this bridge, which used to be sold at Jaycar, it works quite well, though the only complaint I've got is due to the fact it IS a bridge, MAC addresses do not traverse it, though it is kind of expected behaviour to be honest.

    Had a hell of a time trying to get a USB hub (generic powered 4 port USB3.0) working with retropie, but easily fixed by forcing it from USB3.0 to USB1.1 by adding

    dwc_otg.speed=1

    to the /boot/cmdline.txt file and rebooting. Instant fix. Still doesnt provide a proper name when you run 'lsusb' but the devices plugged into it work fine - notably USB sound card, USB wifi and xbox controller.

    Has anyone managed to get an n64 emulator working on retro Pie? There's a lot of discussion on the issue but no universal emulator that works or a consensus on what is even wrong :confused:

    I ordered my USB n64 controller before realising the emulator is a dud lol.

    I saw the compatible hardware list, but I couldn't be bothered trawling through stores trying to find something that natively worked fine. I can live with USB1.1 speeds I guess.

    The raspberry pi is truly amazing. It never knew how the first raspberry pi was on a USB stick. It is amazing to think how far the project has come.
    I work part time at Altronics and we use the raspberry pi for lots of different things.
