Multiplayer filter in emulationstation



  • Hi guys, a little idea my wife thought of.

    It would be really useful if we could filter games (like using the letter filter) to view only games which are 1,2,3,4 players.

    Having last night only wanting to play games with 2 players it was hard to find on some consoles as we had to search scroll past loads of games.

    The metadata is there for this feature to be implemented, so thought I'd share my wife's great idea.

    Thanks for listening and hope to see this in future updates :)



  • @blonqe It's possible using v2.7.4RP of EmulationStation.

    In gamelist view for any system, press Select to bring up the options menu. There is an option Filter Gamelist that lets you select game(s) for that system according to a number of filters including number of players.

    Superb, I'll take a look at this tonight, it's possible I might not be on the most up-to-date version!

    Thank you @dudleydes



  • @blonqe @dudleydes I'm confused. In my standard Emulation Station that's part of Retropie 4.3, I can filter games by the number of players in the Filter Gamelist menu. Don't you have that option, blonge?

    edit: Sorry, I didn't read dudleydes' post correctly. He/she basically said exactly the same. In my defense, I have a bad cold at the moment. O:)
