It's actually surprisingly easy. You can install it with a script on top of raspbian install or simply use the Retropie image for a SD card. If your only purpose for the Raspi is retro gaming, I definitely recommend just using the retropie image.

Here is a super awesome guide. They recommend a SD Class 10 or better card.

I went with the iBuffalo controller, It's super quality for the price.

If you want a wireless option, or joysticks I recommend the 8bitdo. You can also use PS3/4 Xbox 360/One controllers as well.

As a new starter, I'd highly recommend the D&D Starter Set - Comes with a lot of what you need without over loading you with information.

I would then recommend if you want to create a character taking a look at dndbeyond who allow for creating up to 6 characters for free, gives you a tonne of helpful info and helps calculate stats. Especially helpful for leveling up.

And if you just want to chill, see how the game works and unfurls, take a look at Critical Role who have episodes from their campaigns.

Little do you know about monitors of old. 60 hz was a strain on most peoples eyes back in the day. You are applying what little information you have of LCD's to CRT's. My 19" I purchased in 2000 era had 120hz on lower resolutions and I could do 100hz on my max resolution. I bought a 21" around 2001 and I could achieve 85hz at 1600x1200


That was my favorite monitor from the CRT era, I loved the thing until the trinitron tube started to crap out and I had green lines and faded colors. I had a dell trinitron paired with it, but I got rid of it for a nice 24" samsung LCD. The thing seemed huge compared to it. I was pleasantly surprised how 60hz wasn't killing my eyesight.

Hey man. It really doesn't take much. :)

Just order a pack of 8" zip ties from Amazon (about $3) and some Velcro strips for $5. Just bundling your cables together goes a LONG way.

But don't worry. If you still want to be on /r/shittybattlestations even after your cables look all nice, you can just mount your hard drives by duct taping the shit out of them to your case. A shittybattlestations masterpiece!

Ooh, laptop-as-wifi-bridge! I've done that. It works okay, definitely better than nothing.

If you're expecting to make it permanent, you should probably invest in one of these freakishly useful buggers, which is way more compact than your laptop and also not your laptop. Alternatively, you can get a PCIE wifi card for your desktop, though that's a less flexible solution.

It's this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/Targus-AWE55EU-Laptop-Cooling-laptop/dp/B002Q8X3L2. Works well for me and I have some friends with the same one and no issues. :)

Hey man, those mics don't sound half bad. I used one as a gaming mic for a long time. Had a makeshift PVC pipe stand to go along with it.

If you get one of these bad boys, it becomes a pretty nice combo.

There is an ice pack under the back of it, for extra cooling.

The upgraded sound system is a pair of Samsung earbuds that came with my phone. I have to restart my computer if I want them to work though - once they're unplugged the sound driver loses the ability to send sound through the headphones jack.

Buy some of these I have a set that is similar and they work wonders in wifi deadzones.

u/alienangel2 · 1 pointr/shittybattlestations

Double checked, apparently the monitor (an old Syncmaster 2494HM) has 200x100mm mounting holes, my arm only does 100x100mm or 75x75mm.

u/thatrocketguy · 7 pointsr/shittybattlestations

They make them bigger

^and ^yes ^it ^is ^entirely ^necessary

u/Bloodmage391 · 2 pointsr/shittybattlestations

Upvote for powerline, but those are waaaaaaaay more expensive than they need to be. You can get a good set for under $50.

I personally use these, though they're slightly more expensive.
