Raspi & MAME Output System (RGBCommander? GPIO?)
« on: June 25, 2019, 05:18:41 pm »
Hey folks. Got one that's been leaving me scratching my head.

I see people are using various GPIO libraries to run inputs on the Pi, and that seems easy enough.

What I'm wondering is - are there any pieces of software that get the MAME output system to the GPIO? RGBCommander seems to be limited to output devices?

If I'm stuck using a Pacdrive & RGBCommander, does anybody know if it hooks the rank light outputs in Gorf?

I'm going to possibly be building a Pi to Gorf cabinet adapter and would like to do so with a minimum of components. The Nutting/Bally games (Gorf, Robby Roto, Wizard of Wor, etc) are notoriously crap hardware and a small plug-in Pi setup would be a good solution to the problem.
