Raspberry Pi adds more features to Game Boy with Game Streaming

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.
