    Is it possible to remove Ports, ScummVM, MSDos, Macintosh, Apple II, Amiga, Infocom from showing up? I’m putting my unit in a TMNT arcade machine using a ipac4 for controls and I would like only mame to show up if possible, or if it could load into Mame on startup would be even better.

    any help much appreciated!



    You can either remove the files from the rom directories, e.g. /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/ports

    Or edit the /etc/emulationstation/es_systems.cfg and comment out the systems you dont want to ever appear with

    I also made a quick video on my preferred method. many ways to do it.



    Thanks for the tips guys and great video. I deleted the folders from inside the Roms folder and it worked great. Thanks so much, it’s much cleaner now.
