    Can Retropie be virtualised in Virtualbox or VMware workstation. If so it would be good to video capture for documentation.

    Im not aware of a VirtualBox implementation that emulates ARM hardware.

    can emulate an arm system with qemu – but don’t expect stuff that utilises pi gpu etc to work. I build retropie in an emulated chroot environment with distcc on top –

    google chroot pi / qemu pi for links.
