Run roms directly from your desktop with a python script !



  • I want to share this with you all.

    I have made a very simple script for running roms directly from your pixel desktop.
    This last version is system independent and works best with libretro-cores.

    Benefits :

    • It comes in handy when you want to test multiple roms and not having to change every time from your desktop enviroment to emulationstation ;
    • Or you just want to do a game between your normal desktop work.

    You can download it with 'wget' in your terminal and then puts it on your desktop :

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FollyMaddy/retropieXstation/master/retropieXstation.py -P $HOME/Desktop
    

    Instructions on how to run the script are in the script itself.
    Just load it in a text editor and read the text.

    Hope you all enjoy this script.



  • Works perfect. Thanks ;-)



  • I have made a verbose version of retropieXstation called retropieXstation-verbose.

    It is created to find problems if roms or emulators do not work.

    Beware : It only works with retroarch libretro cores and zipped rom files do not always work !

    You can download it with 'wget' in your terminal and then puts it on your desktop :

    wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/FollyMaddy/retropieXstation/master/retropieXstation-verbose.py -P $HOME/Desktop
    

    Instructions on how to run the script are in the script itself.
    Just load it in a text editor and read the text.

    Hope you all find this verbose script usefull.
