RetroPie github install (First time uploader) - Want to contribute script.



  • So I hope someone can help me out. I have created a script that people can use to test their SD card speed and USB speeds. I have uploaded it to gethub, but how can I make it so people can install it from a command line or ever better from RetroPie Setup / Configuration / tools section. And is there a way to have the script be added to their gamelist for retropie so I can have a description and also upload an Icon?

    You need to create a Pull Request and submit it to the RetroPie-Setup repository - https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/. It should contain only your additions.



  • Sorry really new to this, Its not a fix to the scripts just a add on for people to run to test their SD and USB read speeds. It looks like that is not the spot for me to submit the script. and what about Icon.png and adding in info to gamelist.xml?
