I´m going the same way, except that I used an old Atari 2600 (Darth Vader/Polyvox) case (the console itself was damaged beyond repair, too many broken paths on the PCB - but the case was in pristine condition). My "work" is still on "Beta" (I`m not using the old console switches, i´ve only added a tactile microswitch for "start shutdown" routine), with a lot of stuff to do. I also plan on using the old Atari DB9 ports (in Mega Drive standard, which is also compatible with the old Atari sticks) on the Pi. That will be my next step. :-) After I make that work, I´ll see if I can use the remaining GPIO pins to make the "select" and "start" buttons of the Atari console work.You can also try to (if you haven´t so already) make something to start/shutdown the system using the stock Mega Drive power button and a tactile microswitch. :-)
