    I have a 30 second clip (MP4) that with play but ES will launch before the intro is finished. how do I correct this?

    I still hear the music playing in the background, while ES is already started.

    update retropie-setup, and disable then re-enable emulationstation autostarting from the supplementary menu.

    go to retropie-setup (eg from within ES) and update the script, and then disable / re-enable auto starting emulationstation from the supplementary menu of retropie-setup.

    I tried that and it’s still doing the same thing. I also tried using a mov file format

    im assuming you are using the retropie 3 splashscreen init.d script (/etc/init.d/asplashscreen) ? worth putting that on pastebin or similar for me to check.

    I disabled autostart again and it’s working as it should! thanks!!!
    is there a good place to get high quality intros? I’ve been pulling them from YouTube.

    This is the one I use:

    I made it in blender- there are a bunch of videos on YouTube that show you how to make quick intro videos with a template with blender (which is free to download) but there are plenty of other options too.

    Very nice – how about an update with the new logo ? 🙂

    I might even be persuaded to have a video splash then – which I never thought I would say 😉

    Ha ha you just don’t like the trademark violations :p but yes I think that’s a great idea. I could even make it 3d ish. I know you’re not a fan of the slogan idea so would you suggest I remove it or do you have a more fitting slogan?

    I’m also having the problem of the video playing in the background, but when I tried to update the script from emulation station I got –

    update failed:

    fatal: loose object
    216513a32dd065b52727946e47a0f66873168455 (stored in git/objects/21/6513a32dd5b52727946e47a0f66873168435) is corrupt fatal: The romte end hung up unexpectedly

    I am not a programmer so, what does this mean?

    It means you have a corrupt checkout of RetroPie-Setup – Maybe you have some SD Card corruption ?

    You will need to remove RetroPie-Setup and then do a fresh checkout.

    from terminal

    
    cd
    rm -rf RetroPie-Setup
    git clone --depth=1 https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup.git
