    I’d like to customize and add an entry to the RetroPie menu in EmulationStation. I found the source code on github but I’m not sure how to handle this after its been RetroPie has been installed:
    https://github.com/retropie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/master/scriptmodules/supplementary/retropiemenu.sh

    I see I will need to add an .rp file to ~/RetroPie/retropiemenu and I will need to add an entry to ~/.emulationstation/gamelists/retropie/gamelist.xml. I’m not sure where/how to add the function.

    Would anyone know the proper way to handle this? Thanks!

    The functions look like they are defined at the end of this file
    /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary/retropiemenu.sh

    i.e.

    showip.rp)
                ip addr show
                sleep 5
                ;;

    You can also add shell scripts (.sh files) if you don’t want to muck about with functions and variables.

    This video gives a short overview for how you would add lxde to the retropie menu but it can be adapted to other programs.
