I'm a big fan of Touhou games (PC-98 and Windows Era).
I wanted to make a custom console to be able to play them on tv (a plug and play like console).
For the PC-98 games, I was able to use a Raspberry PI with retroPie.
But now, I'm stuck for the windows games. I tried using Wine with a Linux environment to at least see if it would work. Which it didn't.
One of my friends recommended me to get a microcontroller with an x86 processor for that task. So I searched for a list of microcontrollers with that kind of specs but only found some that cost more than 70€.
Here is a list of the specs I at least need to run these games :
- DirectX 9.0
- 1-2 GB of RAM
- 512 MB of VRAM
- SD slot/16 GB of ROM
- Less than 60 Euros
I don't know if anything with these specs exists for that price, but I hope that I can at least get some possible alternatives
