    I wanted to ask if there is a way to have music playing when the user is browsing through the game lists in Emulationstation? I think it would be nice to hear some user provided music or sound effects while looking around the various game menus within Emulationstation. If this isn’t possible yet, is there any plans to allow such a feature in the future?




    I second that request – that would be very cool. I can’t think of any other that allows that. Good idea Draugr!



    This would be a cool feature. You have a couple options. I believe you could use SSH or a script to play the music from a terminal based mp3 player or you can contact the emulationstation crew at their site. This site basically hosts a repack. While the main dude and some of the rest of us can make tweaks to the source the best bet is usually to go to the source (emulationstation) and talk to them directly.



    This would definitely be a cool feature!
