@weirdh I already put console=tty3 some days ago, but it doesn't really hide the console, it just leaves a black screen instead of text.
Actually, I don't really see the console when I run my scripts, I see a black screen. But since, I had console=tty3 I deduced that there would normally be console text instead of a black screen.
It will be difficult to completely hide that console/black screen, maybe it's not even possible.
Anyway, with the icons and detailed names in my scripts, it looks a lot better and 2 or 3 seconds of black screen isn't that bad I guess xD
Yeah having games inside subfolders should be no problem, as long as their path falls inside the "system path" (~/RetroPie/roms/snes, etc.) defined in es_systems.cfg. If you try to point a gamelist for a system at a rom file outside of this system path, ES won't like it and will skip that entry.
@Morotezuki - I would definitely check your local laws especially for something worthwhile as non-profit that helps other people. I've seen it more than once where you can legally rent arcade machines for non-profit use in the US. The key being a rental or even donations for non-profits/charities.
After working with local law enforcement for 20+ years they would be hard pressed to turn something like that over to the State's Attorney or Attorney General for prosecution let alone those offices wanting to take the man hours and resources away from serious felony crimes. I've watched street cops make decisions off intent (was it good or bad) and they chose not to cite any type of citation, ticket or arrest due to that intent. When there's no unlawful intent they will usually leave it to the parties to find a resolution. Intent makes all the difference in deciding how to proceed.
You can actually sue someone throwing paper on your lawn (or anything for that matter) but it introduces two challenges. Finding a lawyer to take your case would be near impossible (try calling a few and explain a weird situation, they'll have you off the phone before you can say prosecute) let alone a judge to rule in favor of a crime that opens the judicial system to abuse and tying up courts for petty crimes.
It's like staying off the FBI's top 50 list of crimes. If you do it's more than likely you'll never see them knocking on your door, literally true. Should we go after the Pac-Man player trying to feed the homeless or a "new" serial killer or drug dealer dropping 5 keys of coke on the streets weekly. No contest.
I imagine most of the members on the forums use ROMs illegally but the laws don't deter us old gamers much from doing what we love and I don't imagine they care that much.
Anyway I would check your laws as there's usually a legal workaround especially when folks are trying to help law enforcement, juveniles or feeding the homeless, hungry, etc. They aren't there to strictly enforce the law to the letter or make a community miserable when it comes to doing good. Basically doing good for a community at large is a healthy great idea. I wouldn't give up trying to do good things! :)
@DarkkMatter the retropie system is created from the $HOME/RetroPie/retropiemenu folder - make sure you copied it to the USB along with the roms, splashscreen, BIOS folders. If in doubt, you can re-install the retropiemenu package from the RetroPie-Setup script and it will be re-created in the correct location.
