Playing Lynx on my arcade machine (via emulation)

Recommended Posts

Recently got lynx games working on my arcade machine, which has a raspberry pi inside it.  Quality of emulation is very good, including sound.  The games also play very well with the arcade controls, which isn't a huge surprise, since many are arcade ports or in the arcade style :).  If I had more money and space in my house, I'd consider making a dedicated lynx arcade cabinet with some lynx themed graphics for the sides and bezel :)

Just a couple fun pics to show how the games look displayed on the cabinet.

Looks very good!

 

With Zarlor, when playing -for example- the second level with fullpower ups, there is a little slowdown on a real Lynx.

Do you also have that with emulation?

Those buttons are loud! But I like it.

They actually came with a kit I bought to install the pi, but I'm going to be switching them out for some more normal buttons I just got later this weekend.

I think there is no slowdown, but I'll have to double check next time I play Zarlor. In general, every lynx game I tested ran at full speed, the pi is at least powerful enough for that :)
