I went ahead and turned the faux power button into a fully functional button and added an LED indicator light. It required filing down the fake button, drilling a hole, gluing a momentary switch behind the hole and fashioning some scrap plastic into the shape I wanted (cut up SD card holder). There is room for improvement with my design, but I love how well it works. Instructions to do this can be found online. The coding is really easy for Recalbox, but there's a youtube video with instructions for RetroPie as well if you'd like (can't post links here).
If anyone has ideas for how I could improve my design, let me know. I just bought a second case to do this again.
Update! I modified my second case differently. First, I drilled the hole and enlarged it with a dremel. A flat file was used to square the corners. I used the same wiring diagram as last time but this time soldered it to a spare piece of Prototype Printed Circuit Board. From there, I epoxied the board in place and fashioned a button face out of scrap acrylic and superglued it to the momentary switch. The only mistake I made was the hole getting too big while using the dremel. New pictures added.

*** Keep in mind the Longest leg on LED light is the +Positive side
*** Using Red Jumper cable for +Positive, solder end to 10K Ohm Resistor
*** Solder other end of 10K Ohm Resistor to +Positive end of LED light
*** Using Black Jumper cable for Ground, solder that to the other leg of LED light (shorter end)
*** Connect other end of Red Jumper cable to spot 4 on GPIO of Raspberry Pi 3
( Diagram included for GPIO on Raspberry pi included with Kit above )
Pic included but on right side it's the 2nd and 3rd down from top 4-6
*** Connect other end of Black Jumper cable to spot 6
*** If it lights up, then proceed to wrapping each cable in Electrical tape, i then taped both sides
together but only after you wrap them independently to avoid contact with each other.
*** Using Hot Glue Gun to place and secure the cable and LED to hole. I used a small amount first under
the LED light to give it something to rest on, then proceeded to tack it down
That's it, and a Big thanks to Old Skool Tools for making this beautiful little case for us to enjoy ;)
I already had a Raspberry PI 3 running RetroPI, (For those that don’t know what this is, basically it’s a small computer running an operating system that has pre-installed emulators for pretty much any console or arcade game ever made, and all you need to do is add the roms for each game). If you do a google search you will get more than enough tutorial and YouTube videos on how to set one up and where to get the needed parts.
My RetroPI worked great and was lots of fun, but it didn’t have that polished looked of the NES Classic. Even with just a basic PI case it still was lacking the right look I wanted. I found some skins you could add to a regular PI case to make it look like an NES. They look good from what I saw online but this still was not that finished look I was going for.
I started looking at 3D printed cases for the PI that had the NES look. I found a lot of good options, but still not exactly what I wanted. Then that is when I found the Old Skool NES case for Raspberry Pi. This had the look I wanted and I like how the game drawer opens up to gain access to the USB ports. The price was a bit cheaper then most 3D printed cases so I went for. Let me tell you that I am supper happy that I did. The case looks great, feels pretty solid, the color is pretty close the original NES and it is super easy to install, just a few screws. I paired the case up with some Bluetooth NES style controllers and I can in all honestly say that it looks and works better than any NES Classic. Plus I have way more games and other consoles like the Super NES, Sega Geneses, and Atari 2600 to name a few. Now when I take my NES-PI (That is what I call it) over to parties and friends house, they are all supper jelly, everyone wants me to build them one. My NES-PI is the life of the party. Nothing better than sitting around with buddies doing some retro gamming. In my circle of friends it usually ends up with everyone challenging each other to Streetfighter death matches. Which is something I could not get with the NES Classic so another plus for the NES-PI.
So overall in the long run yeah it’s not an official Nintendo licensed NES Classic, and if you’re a Nintendo fanboy and need to have the Classic in order to feel complete then this may not be the option for you. In that case go over to EBAY and drop $500 on an item the was only worth $60 to begin with and only has 30 NES games on it (Yeah I know you can hack it and put every NES game on it but you are still limited to just NES games). However if you’re like me and felt cheated by Nintendo over the NES Classic shenanigan. Then Raspberry PI is the way to go. You will spend a bit more money than the original price of an NES Classic, but you will get way more use out of the PI, plus you will NEVER find an NES classic for less than $300 now. Over all I spent about $150 for my setup. You can build a RetroPI for way cheaper than this. If you chose the PI Zero, 16GB SD card, and get cheap wired controller you can be retro gamming for less than $30 bucks. However I had a specific setup in mind. Plus I wanted to make sure that I crushed any NES Classic Fanboys (Nailed It). So if you want something that looks amazing and out preforms the NES Classic than that is about what you will spend. My setup is a Raspberry PI 3 (I had the kit that came with a basic PI case, power supply, 8 G SD card, and heat sinks for the processor about $40 on Amazon) I upgraded to a 128GB SD card (About $40 on Amazon) , I bought an 8bitdo NES30 Pro Controller (I really love this thing, it works great and really give that Old School NES feel but with all the buttons needed for newer games and Bluetooth and is about $42 on Amazon), This Old Skool NES case ($20 on Amazon), and an NES Classic caring case that everything fits nicely into (About $20 at GameStop). I also use a PS4 controller for my second player that I will upgrade soon to another 8bitdo.
