    Just a simple idea.

    When you have 2 or more emulators for the same system, the romlists for each emulator should be merged. The user will have no idea a different emulator is being launched.



    I really like this idea – I just hope it’s possible to implement.



    It’ll help when mixing and matching emulators – particularly different Retroarch cores – for the same systems. N64 is a good example.



    I’m guessing that this suggestion would probably be better directed to the Emulationstation development team as that’s what generally handles display.



    There is a pull request on the gamelistdb dev branch for system options, which would allow us to do stuff like have multiple emulator choices for a single list of roms, or be able to select zx spectrum model etc.

    Just waiting on the upstream development.



    Thanks Buzz! That’s awesome.

    Are there plans to add more options to ES, such as the old Joyconfig GUI that existed in the earlier versions of Retropie? The more someone can do without FTP and terminal, the better, I think.
