Before installing the RPi into the arcade stick, install your favourite software of choice either Lakka, RetroPie, or Recalbox. All are very capable software to run emulators. Make sure to test the arcade stick and everything with the RPi before attempting to install it inside the arcade stick enclosure.

Step 3: Placement
