Start retropie and start with the same game
Hello I would like to turn on my raspberry zero and boot retropie always with the same gameboy game (is my favorite) ready to play. How could I do or configure and where to do this? regards
@javier There's no option to do that, but you can replace the start of Emulationstation - in the
autostart.shscript- with the command to start your game, followed by the Emulationstation start command. You can edit the
autostartcommand from the RetroPie-Setup script itself.
Thank you very much for your quick reply. But I am a person with very little knowledge, could you please explain it to me in a more detailed way I would greatly appreciate it. regards
What is the name of the ROM - full filename - and which emulator is it using ?
@javier Which rom folder are you using ?
OK, you'll need a keyboard for this. Go to the RetroPie-Setup script, into the Configuratio/Tools -> Autostart, then choose the Manually edit. The file should read
Add a line before so the contents of the file are
/opt/retropie/supplementary/runcommand/runcommand.sh 0 _SYS_ gb /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/gb/tetris.zip emulationstation #auto
Then reboot and the system should start with the game instead of Emulationstation. If you wish to revert to the default behavior, edit the file again and remove the line added.
Thank you very much for your help, it has been really useful for me. I will start with the process. regards
