Emulation Station Load Screen

  • How do I remove the Emulation Station load screen and boot text?

    I’m running this on a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ Retropie ver. 4.5

    You can do that by using the --no-splash parameter to the emulationstationcommand in the startup script (/opt/retropie/configs/all/

  • Thanks for your help, that worked👍 I’m still getting a boot text tho (which I want to hide) I recently installed a music player to play while in the emulation station. In the file, it reads..
    while pgrep omxplayer >/dev/null; do sleep 0; done
    (sleep 5; mpg123 -Z /home/pi/bgm/*.mp3 >/dev/null 2>&1) &
    emulationstation —no-splash
