  1. Thanks, Akator. Glad you like. I have a DB9 adapter attached to the Atari flashback controller so I can just plug it into the USB port when I use the joystick but I mainly use the Bluetooth 8bitdo controller. It’s a good idea of yours to add the adapter into the console although on this particular project there might not be enough room left inside.
  2. Finally finished the user interface on Retropie. I used the box art from another theme but created the rest myself including the background etc.
  3. A bit late adding to this thread but this is my Atari conversion Link with more details below:
  4. This is my loading screen I created for when my Raspberry Pi is booting up into Retropie.
  5. I will do. It is Retropie but am just in the middle of rebuilding the image so not ready just yet, so watch this space....
  6. That’s really cool. I do like the Vader theme, it adds a modern darker touch keeping the old retro style.
  7. Thanks, Draxon. Yep I had considered that. I have plenty of vinyl wrap, just need to find somewhere that supplies an Atari logo sticker or something.
  8. Hi all I have recently finished my Atari Flashback Raspberry Pi conversion. I have based it on the look of the Atari 2600 Vader edition. This is an Atari Flashback 6 with a Raspberry Pi 3b+ inside with Retropie. I removed the Flashback buttons and replaced them with arcade style buttons. I used black snakeskin style vinyl wrap to cover the brown wood effect front panel. I removed the old Joystick ports and added USB ports. I cut a hole in the back to add an HDMI port. Another hole was cut to add a Micro SD card reader so I can easily remove the SD card without opening up the whole case. I wired the Pi board to the power button and a white power LED. Hot glue, super glue and lots of filing was used for the project. The Pi board is currently sitting loose in the case as not a lot of room to bolt it in, but it is very secure as it is. I have converted an Atari Flashback 7800 joystick to work via USB by using a convertor. Also connected, an 8Bitdo wireless controller. Just for effect......I messed around with a couple of "free" retro wallpaper backgrounds and stuck my Flashback in the middle, which came out well.

  10. @Tifany Thanks. Would be good to hear more about your project. I bought the logo label from eBay: https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F184202488853
  11. Thank you 🙂 Your Intellivision Controller and Atari Joystick are really cool!
  12. Hi all I thought you might like to see my Atari 7800 Flashback 1 conversion. I removed the insides and added a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B+ with Retropie and many emulators and games such as Atari, Mame etc The power button is wired to the Pi and uses Safe shutdown. I wired a blue LED to the Pi for the power. The Reset button does not actually do anything (just for show). Extension cables were added for the USB connections and replaced the Serial ports. The rear had to be cut out to allow for a bit more room and have cut out a black plastic plate to stick to the back to cover it, which is cut around the power and HDMI port. The red Flashback label was removed and added matte silver vinyl wrap with a chrome Atari badge to look more like the Atari 7800. Hope you like it.
  13. MrMaddog - Glad you loll'd at the VCS pi case. You may also like this VCS inspired bluetooth controller i put together for it too, looks kinda cool...

  15. Thanks :-) I would love to make one and sell to you but because of copyright i cannot :-( I have not seen anything like it anywhere for sale so decided to make it. The end product looks professional luckily!
