Retrobat
« on: July 26, 2021, 03:58:58 pm »
I have three Arcade 1up cabinets.  One horizontal, vertical and a sit down star wars for driving and flight games.

I currently have BigBox installed in them and it is starting to be a pain to administer them.  Don't get me wrong I like Launch/Big Box, I just do not have the time to fiddle with it.

A buddy of mine introduced me to Batrocera, and I have tinkered with that distro with the Pi and again it was fiddly to get working.  I have 3 i7 boxes in each cab and I want to stream from my Gaming PC or Xbox one.

There is an off shoot to Batrocera called RetroBat, but i am not sure which one is capable of using the Steam library, Epic or GamePass with the front end as BigBox does.

I also like the idea of sticking Retrobat on an USB and using a NAS to keep the files all in one place. 

Does anyone has any experience with RetroBat, and how easy would it be to configure a streaming service like Xbox GamePass with it?
