Add a system timer



  • Imagine It, you have a local or a pub and you want your clients to enjoy using your retro console but of course you want a legit benefit.

    The solution? if retropie develop a system timer that you can add for example 30 minutes if press a button ( controlled by a coin acceptor ) and if the timer reach zero the system shut down..

    The clients could change games and whatever as the timer is general for the system, wouldn´t be great?



  • I don't think Retropie is supposed to be used a commercial environment (could be wrong).

    A better suggestion would be built in a timer to restrict my kids access after x amount of time. Something like screentime on the IOS.

    Imagine you buy an actual arcade with licensed games - you can use a Real ™ coin acceptor, like in the old days.
