Changes in platforms.cfg
I had a few Famicon games that I wanted to add to my NES library. I made the changes (added .fds to nes_exts) in platforms.cfg and everything worked out fine and I can see the Famicom games in the NES folder. Happy!
Until I should update RetroPie script. I realise that the changed prevents the update from running and I don't want to commit the changes other than to my local setup.
My Linux knowledge ends about here. Is there a way to commit the changes just for the local system and still be able to run RetroPie setup script? Or just fix this in any other way?
For the Famicon Disk System, there's a special folder
If you want to keep your own edits for the
es_systems.cfg, then you can follow https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Add-a-New-System-in-EmulationStation/ and create your own customized version in your home folder and add there your extensions.
EDIT: or you can just .zip the
.fdsfiles - they would show up in the NES system.

Thanks, since I just have two games for Famicom I would like to read .fds files in the NES folder (since I use the same emulator anyway) rather than having a separate Famicom system.
If it doesn't work adding fds as a supported file format in es_systems.cfg, I will just have to live with Famicom as a separate system in the menu as well!
Thanks for quick reply!
@mitu That was a brilliant solution to use .zip! :)
One problem less, many many thanks!
