Is it possible that as soon as you power up the raspberry it displays a splash screen? Maybe even get retropie or ES to fire a custom event that removes the splash screen once it has finally loaded everything and your ready to pick your system.
I want to hide as much terminal screens as possible. Give retropie a very clean and smooth boot up sequence. hide all the background stuff in the background
you can quieten output by adding “quiet” kernel line parameter. may be possible to have a fullscreen logo as soon as the kernel loads, but you would need to do some kernel hacking 🙂 (or pi firmware hacking 🙂 )
We wouldn’t want to include that as default, as although you may not like the boot messages, they are very useful for debugging 🙂
Thanks heaps for pointingme int the right direction. I wish i could just do something like this and write up a tute, I dont know how to program in linux or phython. How would i do something like this? i dont even know where to start. I imagine something like this would take ages even to explain so. But any help would be appreciated.
Once i get everything working the way i want ill prob create a clean polished “Production” version and a “development” version with all the termnial stuff. it would be cool if there was a switch in the code that could let you switch between production and development in the one Setup.
