Make Retropie playable for a limited time

Mon May 14, 2018 8:40 pm

Hi,

We're about 10 guys who share an office, and we wanna set up a Retropie we can play on during lunch.

My boss accept the idea on one condition, it only works between 11 and 12AM :D

Any idea on how to easily automate this?

Can I make the RetroPie start directly into CLI and the make it automatically launch/close the RetroPie program at certain times?

Thanks :)
