Over the years, gamers have seen the inability to use the Advance Game Boy Advance cable. But now prayers have been answered as GitHub user Rodrigo Alfonso has found a way to stream games on his Raspberry Pi Runge Retropie.
The software runs on both systems – a ROM for the GBA that needs to be flashed onto a compatible cartridge, and a Linux app for the Raspberry Pi. The LINK GBA cable is soldered to the GPIO PI pins. The 2001 Nintendo data supports a variety of serial connections, including normal 2 Mbps mode with bi-directional 32-bit transfers.
The end result of this is that if you’re aiming for a retro Retropie emulation OS on the PI, install the apps and plug in the cable, you can play any retro game.
