    Hello all

    I was wondering if their is a way to disable the splash screen as you start and exit a EMU.

    i keep entering the menu.





    The one which asks whether you want to configure an emulator? (m or x?)



    This is the only thing I can think of off the top of my head short of hard coding configs without runcommand in emulationstation:

    Command Line Access Toggler (for a cleaner look)



    I actually discovered a very easy fix for this as i was having the same issue. My sixaxis remotes accelerometer was causing me to enter the menu screen every time i launched a game.

    go here

    first make a backup of runcommand.sh
    sudo cp runcommand.sh runcommand.sh.bak

    then open runcommand.sh
    sudo nano runcommand.sh

    find this line
    IFS= read -s -t 1 -N 1 key </dev/tty

    Then modify the “-N 1” to “-N 0” so it should look like the below.
    IFS= read -s -t 1 -N 0 key </dev/tty

    This will tell the script to look for 0 characters being pressed (and therefore you will never enter the menu. This will probably get overwritten when you update so you might need to modify it again.



    Alternatively you could disable the launching of the joy2key code so it would not be activated by a joypad movement/press.
