Retro Gaming with Raspberry Pi 2nd Edition out, just in time for Christmas!

Hey there all you video game heads and joystick jockeys, it’s Rob here from The MagPi, the most radical and official Raspberry Pi magazine.

While retro games stay retro, the way we play them can change, and that’s why we’ve put together a second edition of Retro Gaming with Raspberry Pi. It has all-new arcade-building tutorials, amazing emulation advice from experts, and reviews of the latest hardware for all your classic needs – and it’s available right now!

Not only do we show you how to set up a Raspberry Pi for retro gaming, we also have some in-depth tutorials on how to replicate some of your favourite classics with today’s programming languages. You can create your own Hungry Pi-Man or PiVaders, and maybe go even further and code your own original games.

With tutorials on how to build handhelds, how to get DB9 joysticks and CD-ROM games working on a Raspberry Pi, and how to create your own C64 or Amiga, there’s something for retro gaming enthusiasts of all stripes over 164 pages. And all for just £10.

You can get Retro Gaming with Raspberry Pi 2nd Edition from WHSmith, from the Raspberry Pi Store in Cambridge, and our online Raspberry Pi Press store. You can also grab the free PDF from our website.

So get your 50ps or quarters ready, and join the modern age of retro gaming.

Correct me if I’m wrong, but I believe you have mis-labelled the mini-HDMI and micro-USB sockets on page 12.

Yes, the descriptions of the adapters should be switched.

Dagnabbit! Thanks Chris. We’ll add an erratum.

It says you can get a free PDF version of the book from the website, but there’s no link. It’s not on magpi.raspberrypi.com, and the other links only offer the Pi Press version for sale.

Figured it out. For anyone else who may have had trouble, on the homepage of Magpi is just an article about the book. That’s the wrong place. You have to click the link to go to the store, then there is a Download PDF button.

Oh good, I’ve only just brought the first book and haven’t had the chance to start reading it yet!
Dear Santa, Please bring me a printed copy of the 2nd edition!

I have dropped enough hints to guarantee I get this for Christmas!

Hi, on the PDF the contents section has ‘124 Learn gave development’ rather than ‘game development’.

On page 84 you say ‘In the previous tutorial (page 48)’. It should be page 78. I assume you copied the article from the magazine so the page references are wrong. Thanks
