    Just out of curiosity, I see in es_systems.cfg that ES runs some emulators directly and others it runs runcommand.sh first.

    What’s it for?

    The runcommand script changes the resolution down to VGA when you start a ROM and use HDMI for video output. The original resolution is restored when exiting the emulator. This increases the speed a lot. I have not tested the runcommand for every emulator, that is why the runcommand script is not used for every system.

    What if we have a problem where line 23 of runcommand.sh has a segmentation fault when trying to open any N64 ROM?

    Thanks,
    Steve!
