Changing Order of Emulation Menu Items

  • I've had a quick look around the web but can't find the answer to this one.

    Anyone know how I can change around menu items on my emulation station. This sounds a bit anal, but I'd like Gameboy to be followed by GameboyColour, and have all my nintendo systems next to eachother too.

    I'd like this also to apply when scrolling through the game lists.

  • I'm interested in this too.
    It's a small detail, but it would be nice to be able to rearrange then if there's a relatively easy way of doing it.

    Seems a bit trivial, but I blame Retropi for making everything so easy - there's barely anything left that needs tweaking lol

  • First, copy /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg to the /home/pi/.emulationstation folder.

    Now you can move systems in es_systems.cfg, everything from <system>...</system>, to the order you are looking for. To keep things tidy, you can delete systems that you are not using.

    Bear in mind that, if you update any systems, this will be reflected in /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg and you will need to manually update your copy in /home/pi/.emulationstation.

  • Absolutely perfect. Did just what I wanted to do, thank you!
