Nope, just saw on the price tracker.

PM'ing is a lot harder now, the RFD effect happened after the post in hot deals as now without even reading your request they automatically reply they don't PM the clearance price of SF even if you're not even asking about SF...lol

You can try but policy is to not PM other Walmart stores but if you get a nice manager it might happen.

Has anyone who has done the Raspberry Pi mod been able to utilize the existing power button to turn on and off the Raspberry Pi and display? Or any other solution? The challenge is the Pi should be shut down "gently" rather than just a hard power cut. Wondering how I'm going to manage that.

EDIT: Think I found my own answer here.
That method is good and I might try it. But as it says in the instructions, it only powers off the Pi.

Anything else connected to the power bar will still be on (i.e. monitor in sleep mode, speakers/amp, etc).

Some people will get around this by using a Wfi plug or Google home type device to power everything off.

For a previous mini arcade build I used an Iot relay so once the Pi powers off, everything else plugged in will shut off. You would need a shutdown circuit.

Here is a very good guide that can help. (It was also posted by someone else in this thread previously).

Another option might be a master switch on the outside of the case such as this one linked here.

Problem with a Wifi plug is that it is a hard shut off, as far as I know Retropie likes to be shut down "gently". I guess one possibility is wiring the stock power button as per the instructions I linked and powering that down first then powering down the whole power bar with a wifi plug. My soldering sucks so not sure I can try the other two links you posted, as well as I need to stop pouring money into this thing and they both require extra parts :D

My kids play it a bit so I'm looking for the easiest shut down or else it won't get shut down at all, that's why I like the idea of using the stock button. The link says once the Pi goes down the monitor complains about no input then shuts off too, and I'm not sure I'm too concerned the amp (or computer speakers in the case of my mod) being left on.

I just installed a smart power bar in my mame arcade machine with a PC inside. Once the computer shuts down everything plugged into the power bar shuts off. Works good with a pc but I'm not sure if it works with a Pi

Thanks for the tips everyone. I put an online order in yesterday morning, submitted an ad match email for $197 in the afternoon, and got an approval email this morning. Price will be adjusted once shipped. HADUKEN!!!

I didn't try for $175 as it seems that was get declined more than the $197 requests.

Can you provide a copy of what you sent? I've been trying to do the $175 PM request but been getting declined all week

Like I said... Try a $197 pm and send in the photos and receipt from earlier posts. Seems $175 successes are slim.

Back to $399 at the Thunder Bay Supercenter. All that remain are Street Fighter. Other stores might have others in stock but I was unable to check.

Just got the risers, wish they had the same graphics as the cabs but oh well. Completely changed the look and also the game play experience now being more at 'regulation' height. Loving it.
