runcommand-onstart.sh is missing



  • When in the command line cd /opt/retropie/configs/all there is no run command-onstart.sh
    So I used nano to make my own, but I do not think that it is recognized as it did not change color to green (executable or recognized data file), and no matter what kind of script I put in my run command-onstart.sh nothing happened
    I'm trying to add custom launch video to my games
    Any tips?
    Just updated all installed packages and RetroPie set up

    The onstart script does not exist by default, so it's ok you created it. It's also not mandatory to be executable, since runcommand uses bash <path_to_script> to execute it. Most likely there's an error in the script and the command fails. As suggested by the docs, look in the runcommand log file to spot any errors.



  • @mitu Thanks! I was about ready to download a fresh image just to see if onstart would be there
