    You’d have to custom code a call to omxplayer for each game in the runcommand menu. Not worth the effort imo as that’s what the scraper is for.

    ok, thnx.
    i will not use 1000 of games, only my favorite game for each system.
    And for each of them i will create such a gameboot-screen JPG with the used keyes.
    I’m not so familiar with coding and that my problem. i have no idea how this will could work. i thought i could use fbi like this:

    fbi --noverbose  /opt/retropie/supplementary/gamebootpix/[ROMNAME].jpg  &
    sleep 10
    kill $!

    where is the right place in the runcommand.sh and how can i use the variables of the rom name to build the picturename ?

    Can someone help me?
