2 player kit - is it simple to wire?
Looking at the previous questions regarding the option of buying the parts to turn it into a two player kit I was wondering how hard it is to actually wire it into a two player system? Are there any details / instructions on how to do it?
Martin Woollard
  • Really easy! All the buttons and the joystick (for a single player) connect to a single joystick encoder, this then plugs into the Raspberry Pi via a USB cable. So it's just a case of adding the buttons and a joystick to another USB encoder and plugging it into a second USB port on the Pi. Simple!

    Seeing as the Pi has 4 USB ports, there's no reason why you couldn't go all out and do 4 players! Just remember, you need 1 Arcade USB Encoder per player

Parts for 2 player kit
Hi, What additional items would I need in addition to the "Arcade Builder Kit Including Raspberry Pi 3 Model B" for a two player set up - could you list them so that I can order them in one go?

2 player version
Hi, Is there a 2 player version? Looking for the full kit but 2 x controller hardware.
  • We currently don't offer a two player version. We do sell all the parts individually so you could buy the additional parts separately.
