Looking for a Rasberry Pi compatible encoder for your Arcade Project? The Zero Delay USB Arcade Encoder is what you need! It's a fully compatible plug and play solution, simply plug in your joystick and buttons into the encoder, plug the USB cable into the Pi, map your buttons in RetroPi and away you go - it really is that easy! You can use multiple encoders at the same time, so they're great for multiplayer arcade machines! This set includes all wiring hardware required to connect a 4 lug type joystick and up to 12 buttons (12 x unmapped, 4 x pre-set).
