New retro computer

Hey there,

It’s been awhile since I posted but wanted to talk about a new project I’m going to start.

I started thinking about retro games a few days ago. I still have my arcade machine which is great for the old arcade classics but I really want to play the old console games on my TV. Specifically I really want to jump back in to N64 games.

I know that Ouya has great classic game support but I don’t have one. I realized that I have so much old tech lying around the house that I could probably build a machine out of spare parts. I think I can do this without spending very much money at all.

I found an old computer in my closet that’s running a dual core Atom processor at 1.66ghz. I’m not sure it’s going to be good enough so I’m installing Windows on it now for testing.

Once I get the computer set up I’m going to do a case mod using an old NES. I also want to be able to use the original controllers from each console and run the whole thing through my TV.

This should be fun.
