    guy’s is there a way of taking screenshots in emulation station?
    not in game! via the retroarch setting, i wanna take screenshots of my new skin so i can post it for all to use/try



    I found raspi2png easy to compile and use. You can get the source code and instructions how to compile at the link below:

    To use, make raspi2png the working directory and type the command raspi2png. You can add a –delay parameter that will delay the snapshot for a specified number of seconds. The best thing about raspi2png is that I can use it over SSH.

    Though I’ve not used it, an alternative is scrot. You can find a tutorial at the link below:



    awesome thanks mate! I’ll give them a try!

    update: yup that worked perfect! thanks mate
