About This File

My first project will be a retro console, I also had access to a 3D printer and make my own case for this little toy.

Here the impression of the case


STEP 1. Gather materials:

To set up a Recalbox, you need the following:

A Raspberry Pi 2 (I took the Starter kit with Wifi)

A micro SD card with at least 16GB

An HDMI cable

A Bluetooth key

A joystick PS3, XBOX360 (wireless and that's the one I chose) or a USB joystick.

A Wired USB keyboard or wireless keyboard



SD Card Formatter - MAC or WINDOWS

Once you have gathered all these components, you can proceed to Step 2 and install recalboxOS on your SD card.


STEP 2. Install recalboxOS.

It's time to download and install recalboxOS

Visit https://github.com/digitalLumberjack/recalbox-os/releases/latest to download the latest version of recalboxOS. You can install recalboxOS on a FAT32 formatted card. For this, use the formatting software available at https://www.sdcard.org/downloads/formatter_4/pour Windows and MacOSX, Linux or gparted, remember to select "full erase" to erase the map data otherwise it does not work.

Unzip the file recalboxOS.zip and copy all the files in the base of your SD card.

Insert the micro SD in raspberry, connect the HDMI, keyboard and power supply. Your raspberry load the installer, select recalboxOS with SPACE and install with I.

You now have a recalbox
