    Hello all, my project is a SNES retropie. However, there are more emulators installed then i need. If i delete the games from the related folders will that stop the emulators from showing up?



    Yes, deleting the roms/files in the folders will hide the emulators but if you also want to hide cavestory and/or the input config screen you will need comment them out in es_systems config.

    Here is commands that will allow you to do this, along with backup your old one:

    cd .emulationstation
    sudo cp es_systems.cfg es_systems.cfg.bak 
    sudo nano es_systems.cfg

    Then add a # infront of each line you dont want. Ctrl-X and save when done.
