This weekend we have an important mission. No matter the emulator or the game, but the platform.
Our case, Raspberry Pi is becoming one year after launch, a platform for games, media center and very interesting projects.
ChameleonPi it's a Raspbian remix without the X graphical environment that uses it's own launcher to run emulators for old computers, arcades and consoles.
This version brings new features:
Added NES emulator
Added SNES emulator
Support for Joystick
Added pdf reader
The image is only available this weekend as a direct download.
PiMAME is similar, but mostly just to MAME and more optimized for this system. New of this beta are:
Support for the XArcade Tankstick.
New menu at start to choose options before launching emulation.
PIP (the Pi IP service) is available to install (but off by default).
New admin options in the web frontend to Reboot and Shutdown your Pi.
Smaller image should now install on most 2GB cards (with some room to spare).
