TheRA from The Retro Arena is an all in one retrogaming and entertainment software bundle on various platforms from Odroid, Pine, NanoPi*, Tinkerboard*, Raspberry Pi 4*, and possibly more. This initiative is for those to of us that wish to push development forward on the more powerful and premium Single Board Computers (SBCs) in their categories. We are here for like minded folks that want to discuss retrogaming and all that it has to offer on an expanding gamut of SBCs/Mini PCs.
We wish to expand the horizons of what we offer to the great folks out there looking for a small entertainment platform that is low powered from the electric bill standpoint, yet well powered enough to provide enjoyment of retrogaming systems throughout the history of video games. With our easy to install operating system distribution based on stable versions of linux it allows to you enjoy an array of videogames from gaming consoles, handhelds, and personal computers spanning across the 70s, 80s, 90, and 2000s. Not only that, but you can also enjoy and consume your movies, TV shows, and music with your choice of applications directly or by using the included desktop depending on OS release and availability.
Currently we support the Odroid-Xu4, The Odroid N2, The Odroid Go Advance, The RockPro64 from Pine, and are adding support for the Nvidia Jetson nano.
The upcoming ARES project will add support for a couple of other devices as well, Raspberry pi 4, and Asus Tinkerboard.
