Raspberry Pi 3 best 64Gb image?

Hi:

There are several ones to try. I would like to have one with:

- Kodi (working fast). Is it better an older version?
- MAME
- C64 emulator with games

It seems rare to have these three things together I believe.

... and more.

I don't mind to listen about something different, but I don't want to have to be trying them all, as at least here with my slow internet and laptop (now with two external fans cooling it at the same time) they take a long time to download and install on the Sd card.

I've bought two 64Gb's cards, so I could use two different images to have it all.

Suggestions are welcomed

I may suggest the image i'm using with my Pi3 since a year;
you can download from this link
What you get is;
  • 6Gb image, 3Gb dowload (plenty of space left for emu's roms)
  • Retropie 4.2.7
  • Raspbian LXDE Pixel
  • Kodi 17 Krypton (with italian addons you can remove)
  • Plenty of themes, splash screens, videogame cover images
  • Gamelist.xml
Basicly you have only to add roms in the already configured system folders (c64, amstrad, spectrum, arcade, nes, atari, ocengine, megadrive ecc.)


Enjoy!

I'm a fan of Amibian - https://gunkrist79.wixsite.com/amibian
Its just UAE by Chips, if you use WINUAE, this will be a breeze - i FTP the files from my real amiga to the pi and everything is already setup since my real amiga IS setup Just that cause of the pis restrictions, certain higher end things won't run well or at all.
Emulator will get better over time.

P.S: I also like this cause it boot like a real Amiga directly to Amiga rather than menus where you select a game..... since my real Amiga uses igame. it feels closer to a real experience.

Thanks for this. i am running retroPie but have a spare 32GB card i didn't know what to do with yet. I think I'm going to put Amibian on it after reading fromt eh link. Worth trying out something new.

I use RetroPie with Kodi and linux installed, but rarely used. As I hate to have too many games installed, I keep only one I play for each emulated system, and there are more then few systems I emulate - all on single 32GB microSD.
