Moonlight streams modern shooter to the classic handheld.
See how a FPS is running via a Raspberry Pi Zero W, there’s Pi-powered drone fun in New York, and read-only mode comes to Raspbian Lite.
Player Unknown’s Battlegrounds ( PUBG) is one of the most popular games on Steam at the moment, and 314reactor’s Michael Darby has only gone and got it running on a Game Boy. Okay, not really. Let’s explain…
PUBG is a Windows-only affair, but using Nvidia’s open source Moonlight protocol it can be streamed from a capable PC to any supported device. In this case the target was a Raspberry Pi Zero W connected to a 2.2-inch PiTFT display squeezed into a Game Boy Color case. Using the traditional two AA batteries for power, voltage boosted to the requisite 5V didn’t quite provide enough juice to power everything, so room had to be made for a LiPo battery and an Adafruit Powerboost. These and other accommodations required a good deal of cutting and gluing. The fpcp utility was used to accelerate the framebuffer device. The result may look a little rough ‘n’ ready, but we approve wholeheartedly. Go to http://bit. ly/pugb-game to find out more about the project.
