Portable Game Station in Steam?
Hey @herb_fargus. I have a non-RetroPie question for you.
I recently got Portable Game Station and @jdrassa ' s EmulationStation for Windows build installed on my computer. It works great!
I want to be able to add it to Steam as a non-Steam game so I can stream it to my Steam Link. As it's a .bat file, I haven't found a solution on how I could do this. Do you have any ideas?
I've never done anything like that so I'm afraid I wouldn't really know where to start
No problem! Hopefully someone else has attempted to add it to Steam and can chime in.

@livefastcyyoung Since steam only accepts .exe files you could try converting the .bat file to an exe file. Or if you don't want to mess with the original, make a new .bat pointing to the original and convert that one. Then add the exe file. Haven't tried it yet but need to do it myself and that's the solution I came up with.
.batfile just starts the ES executable, why not add the complete
.execommand (from the
.batfile) to Steam ? No 'conversion' or other tricks.
@mitu I know the .bat just starts the ES executable. However, starting the executable on it's own and it'll say it cannot find any systems. I am guessing this is a path issue and Portable Game Station sets the path in the .bat.
How would I add the complete .exe command to Steam?

@livefastcyyoung I'm not using the windows build, but I might be able to help with figuring out what the .bat does and help with the .exe. Could you please post your .bat on pastebin and link it?

So far, I only added exe files to Steam.
- Maybe you can use a .bat to .exe converter and try it again.
- Or you try to call it through the interpreter, something like cmd.exe /c path/batchfile.bat. Which means you include cmd.exe to Steam and set commandline options to /c path/batchfile.bat.
