Colossal 256GB by Ransom [RELEASED]

[C-O-L-O-S-S-A-L 2-5-6-G-B] by Ransom
For Raspberry Pi3/A/B/B+


It has been four months in the making, the image has a completely new way of playing Retro Gaming presented in a Dark Medieval art theme, whilst being spellbound by the audio.

I am no stranger to Retro Gaming and I'm sure you will enjoy this new image I have built for Raspberry Pi completely Solo.

40,000 Game count with endless amount of time to enjoy, explore and experience.

- Added Customized Medieval Themed Overlays for games which don;t have Preset Overlays,

- All SCUMMVM games are all in English.... Also any older Keyboard only requiring ScummVM game, please launch with +Start SCUMMVM and boot from GUI.

[INSTALLATION]

- I have used a "Green" 256gb Samsung Class 3 Micro Card to build this image. I recommend using only a Samsung branded Micro Card for this image. I cannot garantuee it will work on any other brand. You have been warned.

- Plug into any Pi3A/B/B+ and Enjoy

- PS3 / PS4 Controllers Pre Configured.

[HELP]

- If you have any issues with this image, feel free to post problems on my discord channel https://discord.gg/xD98XvH

- This image is not compatible with Pi4

[Extra]

- I do not and will not make any donations and or profit with this image. This is something I do in my down time and just willing to share for free.

- I do not and will not make any donations and or profits with Youtube, Discord or any other sneaky means of making money vie the Internet.

- "40,000 Games is Ridiculous!?!?!? There is no way you will play these in a life time..." - Yeah I know, then grab a smaller image made by people who monetize.

- "You have heaps of double ups and a lot of missing art?!?!" Double ups are not double ups, press select on a game in ES and it will show you the filename. Art?!?! 40K Games, would take 10 yrs to create arts, so this was never on my agenda.

- "Download speed is too slow?!?!?" - Well then either 1. Wait till more seeders hit or 2. Move onto something else with your life.

- Got a complaint about the image? Tell someone who cares...

Otherwise, sit back, Relax and Enjoy....

Sorry if this is off-topic, but are there some similar games library for Windows PC? I don't have a Raspberry Pi and I was looking for only the best games of the classic systems for me to play on my notebook! Something like 256GB and 40,000 games seems sufficient for me.

Thanks, I think that I found it!

But it's only me that thinks it is so bad there are so few options for Windows x86? There is some reason why nobody come with an idea to create a RetroArch game collection for Windows x86 similar to Ransom's one?

While that doesn't seem to happen, I think I will continue creating my own game library. Patience...

Great job.I also have something similar. I didn't add the mini consoles, Daphne, Sharp, Dreamcast, PC Engine CD, Sega CD and C128, Vic20 and CPlus4. In my Micro SD 400gb there are 640 PS1 games, DOS games, FB Games and others in total are 31291. PS1 and Amiga games have custom covers.

It's difficult, time is never enough. However, it is still not complete, I have only entered 700 amiga hdf's games (and you know how many we have), and I have to include custom covers.

I understand. Once I finish updating all my HDF's I will be adding them into Project Ultimate Amiga v3
