  • Nice! It's a cool and functional spot to have in your man cave!
    By RYOBI NATION, on June 6, 2018

  • Nice!  I've done something similiar in that, I've moved some computers out into my garage, and now, it's like I'm building another world.  Seriously, I want to redo the whole thing, and incorporate the computers into the space, and currently, heat is a pretty big issue, so I'm thinking of cutting an AC unit into the wall.  Power then is my next concern as I already trip breakers when running tablesaw and shop I have a long way to go it seems.  Did you have heat issues in your space?  How did you deal with them?  Power?

    • about the heat issues I got a blower fan, I have it in front of the computer on a timer that comes on for about a half hour at night that blows cool air into the intake fan, with the power 
      last year i had to replace drywall by my door so i also hid the panel in the wall cause it was attached to the drywall when we bought the house and i replaced the breakers to push 40 amps for my main cause thats all i had and two 30 amps and one 15 but i leave that one off cause its for a flood lamp i don't use, I only have 120 going thru my garage and one 30 amp outlet to power my mig hope that helps, I hear the best way not to blow the breaker is run 60 amp for main and at least 30 for others or put in a couple surge protectors

    • Yeah, that does help seeing it explained that way.  When you refer to 60 amp main, is that saying you set up another sub-box entirely where the 40 amp is the main and the 30's are all fed by it?   But would be better with 60 amp for main.  How did you feed the 60 if that is the set up.  From house panel main?

  • What an awesome addition to a hallway! Is it going to be painted or stained, or do you plan to leave it more natural looking?
    By RYOBI NATION, on June 6, 2018
    • It was stained.  Light Oak Color.

  • This is so impressive! It looks like you thought of everything when building this!!
    By RYOBI NATION, on June 6, 2018
    • It might look that way, but there was a good amount of trial and error involved.  Good news is that I didn't make any major enough mistakes to have to restart the whole project, just a few boards here and there.

  • So many questions, mainly on the tech side of this. I would assume you're using retropie, so how was the configuration of the controller?  How is the power switched? I'm MDF, controllers and time away from making this project, have the 32" screen and the pie already set up, using wired PS3 controllers temporarily. Enjoy the machine, it's a fun toy for kids of all ages!

    • Controller configuration was really easy.  The kit I ordered had the buttons, joystick and the usb adapter.  Each button has fork connectors for the button side and a plastic connector for the usb adapter side.  Joystick has a 5 pin molex connector.  Then I used the controller configuration in RetroPie to setup the actual button mappings.  The one/two player buttons on the front are LED buttons, but I disconnected the LED portion as they were pretty bright and distracting.  For power, I used a momentary push button and the info from this youtube video:

      I also used a relay connected to the Raspberry Pi to control the marquee LED power, as I wanted it to turn on and off automatically.

      By matt_39150, on June 18, 2018
    • That has got to be the cleanest switch setup yet. No more breadboards or secondary kits to buy. Thanks! My monitor powers up just enough to run a pi2 and controllers, so I'll have a one button on, 2 button power off setup. My other option is to put in a power strip and wire the momentary to both sets, this switch code is a game changer for me. 
       I knew which kit you ordered, its the same one I'm planning on using, so I'm glad it configures easy.
