Possible noob question:Aloshi wrote:To anyone looking for a simple front-end for RetroArch that doesn't use X, I present: EmulationStation!
I've been working on it for the past week or so. It's written in C++ and uses SDL, SDL TTF, and Boost.Filesystem. It can be easily configured with a list of "systems" - each with a name, search path, extension, and launch command - to easily browse a list of ROMs with either a controller or keyboard. More instructions in the README.
It's still got some work to do (allow holding down non-keyboard input to scroll, sorting the games list, truncating games with long names, beautification), but it's in a usable state. I'm also an entirely self-taught programmer, so please excuse me if the code is ugly.
How to start?
I have installed the libs and compiled it,
directory after that looks like:
emulationstation LinLibertine_R.ttf Makefile README.md src
just typing emulationstation won't do anything ("-bash: emulationstation: command not found
" - it is marked as executable)...thanks
