Mini Dragons Lair - Space Ace Scoreboard for Rasp Pi
« on: January 19, 2020, 02:12:00 pm »
Finally got around to finishing this project, turned out pretty cool. 

Big dragons lair and space ace fan, wanted to take it wherever and play it, but never knew what my score was.

I started off by building a full scale version to run off off the PI, just to see if i could do it.



After i got that working, i decided to scale it down just for funs. So i built this little guy.



Pi attached directly to the back.





I built a custom trilogy attract mode Image for Ace, Lair and Lair 2.  The scoreboard works with Ace and Lair.





Portable SL, SA scoreboard.  Fun project, now the game is super fun to play like it was back in the arcades.

Yeah Id love to see more of this. Is that an original scoreboard, a reproduction or a custom board?
