    This looks like something to keep an eye out on. I've seen a couple threads, and I must say, what I've seen so far, it looks interesting. Best of luck guys!

    Anyway, as for my own entry:
    I'd just like to note that SoundCloud may actually continue in 2018. They got another money injection back in August. Having said that, I doubt SoundCloud will survive much longer after they run out again. If you have/had anything important on there, I would seriously suggest you back it up. If you can't run the script, ask me in a PM or something. I'm willing to archive anything.

    I have also been meaning since forever to change the tmp folder step to both change it to create a dir in /tmp and allow you to select your own folder altogether, but alas... laziness is my greatest fault.

    Ive chosen 64GB because this gives me no headache in regards of running out of memory. Its cheap and if I end up with a not 100% filled SD, I dont shed a tear. Quality above quantity is my motto. But keep in mind, that many games came on CD, like PSX, DC, MS-DOS and its not rare they demand about 700MB for the complete image. I just tweaked the stick to run Pro Pinball, which is a good example. BTW. what an awesome game!

    In fact it is a 10 button smasher. As mentionend, there is one extra button on each side, dedicated for pinball games.

    I'm going to start building an arcade stick like yours, and probably go with a 32GB nano USB. It will only have a few PS1 games and NES, SNES, Gameboy/Color/Advance, Genesis, GameGear, and NeoGeo ROMs on it. I get a good deal on the USB nano drives, about $10 each for 32GB.

    That is completly up to you. I am happy to help you, if there are any open questions. just let me know. For me the most challenging part was/is the software behind, but your console selection is not to hard to emulate. NeoGeo needs the right romsets, but the rest is easy as soon as you have one game working, all others should be fine as well.

    I might look into building those pie things everyone is talking about.

    There are some weird issues on this page on Dolphin browser for android. A black square appears part way through the first post, then fills the whole page except the top bar. It also stays like that when going to the home page.
