Thanks! Not bad for now. If it remembered it per-game that would really be slick. With all these custom borders getting created, I'm sure it will come.

Have you considered a Pi?

I have to give Lew credit. That comic book theme is actually really well done. The friend of mine who Iím building this for is a huge comic book nerd, so Iím pretty sure heíll love it.

Some themes are definitely better than others. The comic book theme is good.

Right now, Iím really liking the tronkeyfan theme. Clean, basic and looks legit.

Anyone interested in giving their RetroFlag case a little more authenticity, check out these Waterslide decals.

These are not stickers but rather the same decals used on airplane models etc. I havn't applied this sticker yet but from what I understand, the existing logo can easily be removed with a quick swipe of acetone. Or if you want to really be careful, you can just use a magic eraser.

Must admit I had thought of doing something similar myself.

Ok so I'm weighing in here too.

For Arcade emulation.. ehh.

For console emulation up to ps1 ...  rPi all day.  You can't beat the affordability vs a PC, and the NesPI case is so high quality it's insane.  I didn't know about the stickers, but just ordered them and am psyched.  Add in a legit NES/SNES controller with the BlissBox 4-play... and it's just way too easy and awesome.

Ugh, I had two stickers in my cart ready to go, when I realized that $5 is 1/4 to 1/5 the cost of the case itself. Just canít pull that trigger for something non-essential to gameplay.

Two stickers is like half the cost of a case, man!!!1!

I might still bite.... but it gave me pause for a second there. I still need to pick up a few items to make these usable, so $5 stickers are still Griff-richer items at this point.

Just pretend the case costs $299.00 if that makes you feel better.

What are you running and where did you get that theme? I usually run recalbox because of its super easy setup but it only has two basic themes.

I may agree with the sentiment that Pis are awesome after this weekend.  After fighting with an Intel NUC 3 for the past 3 years (and shelling out too much cash) to make it an all in one emulation gaming platform I broke down last weekend and bought a Pi 3.  From what I read the install should be fairly easy.  Here's to hoping...

Installing is easy. Configuring is not.  You'll be at that for a long time, guaranteed. But hey if you're into flipping switches rather than playing games, all the power to you.

If you find the right image it's stupid easy.  I spent maybe 5 minutes configuring mine, after that, play on.

ETA Prime has some easy to follow tutorials on utube.  I'm over fighting with my NUC.  I just want to get something set up so I can relax and play.  I was trying to modify a real NES to encase my NUC and it ended up looking like ---steaming pile of meadow muffin---.  I will achieve the look I want with the NES Pi case.  The only downfall is I can't play Gamecube or PS2 games but its no big loss.  I only wanted to play Monkey Ball on GC with my daughter but I'm sure we can find another game she and I can enjoy together.  Or just mod my Wii.  I just need to find a way to hook up a trackball to the Wii.  And RE4 was the only game I enjoyed on PS2 and I can download an HD copy on PS4.

Titch I WILL NOT tell you following:

1.  The machine was already dead when purchased.
2.  It was about the 14th million NES out of the assumed 34 million produced making it as rare as a heat during the summer
3.  It was not as rare as say an original Mario Bros cabinet.
4.  You have my sincerest apologies for cutting into a piece of 5$ plastic.

Make sure you build your Pi with a class 10 micro SD card. Like this one

I think some of the complaints people have with Pi performance is due to them using slow sd cards.
