How can I set an alternate rom path for certain emulators? For example I would rather run psx\sega cd\pce cd games from a thumb drive because they take up so much more room than the cartridge systems and my 32gb sd card is nearly full.
I have a Pi 2 running retropie 2.6. I have limited space on my sd card so I was attempting to put everything on a separate USB drive. As I put the roms onto my usb drive, I tried to copy the folder tree on the pi so changing es_systems.cfg would be easy.
Once I inserted the USB and went to change the config file, it instead copied 1/3 of the files from the USB to the sd card. Any idea how to disable that feature?
Since I plan on doing more than just retropie on it at once, once you reboot it, it copies everything from the USB to the sd, that method still doesn’t work. So far no way to turn off the autocopy USB. So I’m just going to setup a symbolic link.
Also, in /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg, I’m noticing that all/most of the systems are duplicated. Any idea why?
