Picade 2 Player Version

Picade 2 Player Version by ArcadeForge.NET

Picade is the best solution using a Raspberry Pi in a Arcade Environment like Bartops, Barcade with MAME or retroarch.


  • Works with Regamebox, Recalbox, Retropie and other distributions
  • 28 Inputs possible!
  • On Board Amplifier!
  • On Board Amplifier can be controlled via Buttons. So no need to assemble a potentiometer in your cab. Just use buttons.
  • On Board Amplifier can be controlled alternatively via Software and GPIO. With this option there is no need of extra buttons fpr volume control at all.
  • Volume control otions are set on the board via DIPs. So no need to make software configurations.
  • Extra 5 Screw Terminals for GND. This make your wiring simple :)
  • Needs only 5V, So you save bare money, because you don't need a 12V PSU anymore.
  • Sound is conneced via line in headphone jack. So no GPIO are occupied by custom sound interface solution and no extra drivers or DT Overlays are neeeded.
  • Compatible to MK Arade Joystick Driver, see recalbox
  • Works with Recalbox, Retropie and other retro game rpi distributions, since picade 2 Player Arcadeforge PCB is compatible to MK Arcace Joystick Driver. Just activate this driver.
  • Compatible to Regamebox
  • Compatible to Adafruit Retrogame Driver. Just adapt the pinout to your needs. Find here a already adapted version.
  • lag less controls via wire to wire GPIO connect. No USB Lag applies
  • Extra PSU jack for 2.1mm plug inner pole plus PSU. So no need for expensive USB C based 5V 3A PSUs anymore.
  • Handling for wake up and shutdown possible
